South Florida-based ACR Electronics, which designs and manufactures distress beacons and survival equipment, has upgraded its manufacturing facilities with a new Surface Mount Technology line at its Florida headquarters, the company recently announced.

“By using the new high-performance SMT equipment to build our own circuit boards, we will be able to offer high levels of flexibility and accuracy, control a fast and agile supply chain with low production lead times, and respond dynamically and quickly at all times,” John Nguyen, president of ACR Electronics, stated in a press release.

The new SMT line at ACR Electronics includes the surface mount i-Pulse M20 with multi-conveyor system to provide the highest large board handling capability and high feeder capacity, plus solder paste printer YCP10 and high-end optical inspection system YSi-V for advanced automated optical inspection (AOI) of the circuit boards.

ACR Electronics’ in-house manufacturing, development and testing capabilities include 3D modeling, finite element analysis, PCB and PCA design, EMI problem solving in RF design, custom battery pack and remote switch design, and conformal coating of circuit boards.
