Published: 31 October 2012 - Rachael Morling
TDK-Lambda is investing in new production equipment at its power supply manufacturing facility in Ilfracombe.
The recent introduction of automated glue dispensers into the power supply manufacturer’s two surface-mount lines will be augmented with Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) of screened paste on PCBs.
The company is also investing in test equipment, which is being designed and manufactured in the UK by the company’s Equipment Manufacturing Team, and will soon be installed and commissioned. The new Programmer/Calibrator, Power Cycler and universal product final ATE will increase capacity and provide significant process improvements.
