Choosing Partners Saline Lectronics attributes


much of its growth and success to the


partners chosen when purchasing equipment for its manufacturing process. Recently, the company pur- chased the HDMag inspection sys- tem from FSInspection. Introduced by Dave Trail of Horizon Sales, the


HDMag was an instant hit. The system is positioned to pro-


vide greater assistance in SMT in- spection, repair and rework, and in counterfeit part and component de- tection. Its ergonomic design and in- tegrated monitor combined with soft- ware provides for convenient collabo- ration among peers and supervisors as well as real-time sharing with suppliers and customers. The design of the system also promotes good pos- ture and reduces operator eye, neck and back strain. “Once I tried the HDMag for my-


self, I immediately knew it was some- thing we needed in our facility,” com- mented Jason Sciberras, Manufactur- ing Manager at Lectronics. “We use the HDMag daily in our SMT Depart- ment to better inspect any placement concerns on a PCB assembly, and to better ensure that all placements are within IPC quality standards.”
