Universal Electronics adds manufacturing capabilities, including laser cutting

Universal Electronics has added new capital equipment, including a laser cutting system, for its manufacturing facilities in Wisconsin.

Universal Electronics (UEI; Whitewater, WI) has increased its RoHS-compliant printed circuit board (PCB) and higher-level assembly electronics manufacturing capabilities with the addition of new capital equipment, including a laser cutting system, for its manufacturing facilities in Whitewater and East Troy, WI.

The company has invested in a seventh surface-mount technology (SMT) Line at its Whitewater plant to increase capacity and better serve existing clients while preparing for growth. This investment involves high-speed automated SMT and test equipment, including a DEK wide body printer, a Universal Instruments Genesis SMT chip shooter, and Yestech automated optical inspection (AOI) system. The investment also includes a Trotec laser cutter that offers more-efficient depanelization of flexible circuits.

With this new equipment, increased labor, and additional production shifts, the company has increased capability and capacity to meet the growing and time-sensitive demands of the electronics contract manufacturing market.
