What do you get when you combine technical expertise, state of the art equipment, and a hardworking team of customer-service dedicated employees? The answers is Spectra-Tech, a World-Class Electronics Manufacturing Service Provider based in Batavia, Ohio.
Founded in 1998, Spectra-Tech’s core employees have a significant amount of experience in PCB manufacturing. This expertise provides their customers the insight to resolve manufacturability issues and product solutions that result in lower cost and higher quality than other PCB manufacturers.
Besides Superior Quality, Spectra-Tech also prides themselves on a team with a ‘do what it takes’ attitude to deliver each product on time to a satisfied customer, starting with assigning a Program Manager to each new order. The Program Manager is responsible for interfacing with the customer, and helping them customize specific needs for their individual product lines by tracking costs, schedules, and deliveries daily. Changes are managed with timely communication, documentation, and by being highly responsive to all customer requirements.
“Spectra-Tech continues to invest in the latest technology to provide the highest level of accuracy and quality of assembled products. As part of our commitment to continuous quality improvement, Spectra-Tech recently acquired a total of five (5) new MIRTEC MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI systems,” commented Craig Wilson, Vice President of Spectra-Tech. “After evaluating several leading 3D AOI vendors, we selected MIRTEC as the best solution to meet our ongoing quality initiatives.”
“At MIRTEC we believe in quality, and Spectra-Tech’s quality standards are some of the highest I’ve ever seen,” added Brian D’Amico, President of MIRTEC’s North American Sales and Service Division. “We are extremely pleased to partner with Spectra-Tech and are equally committed to their goal of continuous quality improvement. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship between our two organizations.”
MIRTEC’s award-winning MV-6 OMNI 3D AOI machines are configured with the company’s exclusive OMNI-VISION® 3D Inspection System which combines 15 Mega Pixel CoaXPress Camera Technology with MIRTEC’s revolutionary Digital Multi-Frequency Quad Moiré 3D System to provide precision inspection of SMT devices on finished PCB assemblies. This proprietary system yields precise height measurement used to detect lifted component and lifted lead defects as well as 3D solder fillet inspection post reflow. Fully configured these systems features four (4) 10 Mega Pixel Side-View Cameras in addition to the 15 Mega Pixel CoaXPress Top-Down Camera as well as an Eight (8) Phase COLOR Lighting System.
“Our MIRTEC MV-6 OMNI AOI machines have performed extremely well!” continued Wilson. “The defect detection capability has proven to be outstanding for both SMT and Through-Hole inspection. We are equally pleased with the level of customer service and after sales support. Any questions or issues we have had were handled both quickly and efficiently.”
The sale of the MIRTEC machines was facilitated by Mr. Fred Binggeli of The Murray Percival Company, which represents MIRTEC in the regions of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Wester Pennsylvania.
