      Competing in the Automotive Market Requires Automation

      Competing in the Automotive Market Requires Automation

      North American Automotive Parts Manufacturing​

      Many North American Automotive Electronics Assembly Corporations are re-shoring their ventures from overseas. Some of these top companies include Rockwell Automation, General Electric, Cognex, and Gentex Corporation.

      It goes beyond politics for these companies to engage in competitive efforts to build products in North America. But the only way that a re-shoring movement is feasible is to automate the process. The long factory worker assembly lines are an idea of the past. As manufacturing companies develop their business plans moving forward, they will have to be built on a solid foundation of lower input with higher output and increased quality. As the complexity and miniaturization of parts are accomplished, quality in production will be essential to maintaining a solid competitive edge.

      The externalities of conducting trade whereby low wages, environmental disregard, human health and wellbeing are accepted for a low-cost product are now being addressed into financial liabilities with complications expected to grow. However, moving your manufacturing to an automated in-house system will not only improve your overall quality, and losses, but will quickly put you at the competitive edge your that your Electronics Manufacturing Company will require in order to forge forward as a leader in electronics.

      We took a look at one of these automotive re-shoring corporations, Gentex Corporation. Gentex manufactures automatic-dimming rearview mirrors and camera-based driver assistance systems for the automotive industry. A couple of years ago, Gentex Corp re-shored their manufacturing efforts from Mexico and China to Zeeland, Michigan. The only way in which Gentex was able to make this re-shore movement was via automation saying, “Making modern car parts in the U.S. today is going to take a whole lot of robots.” - Gentex Corp., autonews.com

      Gentex Quote -- automotive electronics manufacturing

      Since Gentex’s venture to re-shore with automation a few years ago, we took a look at their value on the NASDAQ and noticed a sharp gain around the same time they changed their business model to an in-house automated model.

      Going beyond the politics of today, the ONLY way to re-shore electronics manufacturing is with automation.

      How does SMT electronics assembly work?

      Electronics manufacturing using surface-mount technology (SMT) simply means that electronic components are assembled with automated machines that place components on the surface of a board (printed circuit board, PCB).


      Electronics manufacturing using surface-mount technology (SMT) simply means that electronic components are assembled with automated machines that place components on the surface of a board (printed circuit board, PCB). In contrast to conventional through-hole technology (THT) processes, SMT components are placed directly on the surface of a PCB instead of being soldered to a wire lead. When it comes to electronic assembly, SMT is the most frequently used process in the industry.

      Electronic assembly encompasses not only placing and soldering components to the PCB, but also the following production steps:

      • Applying soldering paste, which is made of tin particles and flux, to the PCB
      • Placing SMT components to the soldering paste on the PCB
      • Soldering the boards with a reflow process.

      Applying Soldering Paste

      Applying soldering paste is one of the first steps in the SMT assembly process. Soldering paste is “printed” on the boards using the silk-screen method. Depending on the design of the board, different stainless-steel stencils for “printing” the paste onto the board and various product-specific pastes are used. Using a laser cut stainless-steel stencil custom made for the project, the soldering paste to be applied only to the areas where components will be soldered. After the soldering paste is on the boards, a 2D-soldering paste inspection is performed to ensure that the paste is evenly and correctly applied. Once the accuracy of the soldering paste application has been confirmed, the boards are transferred to the SMT assembly line, where the components will be soldered.

      Component  Placement and Assembly

      The electronic components to be assembled come in trays or reels, which are then loaded into the SMT machine. During the loading process, intelligent software systems ensure that components are not inadvertently switched or misloaded. The SMT assembly machine then automatically removes each component with a vacuum pipette from its tray or reel and places it on its correct position on the board using precise pre-programmed X-Y coordinates. Our machines are capable of assembling up to 25,000 components per hour. After the SMT assembly is completed, the boards are moved on to the Reflow ovens for soldering, which affixes the components to the board.

      Component Soldering

      To solder electronic components, we use two different methods, each of which has distinct advantages depending on the order quantity. For series production orders, the Reflow-soldering process is used. During this process, boards are put in a nitrogen atmosphere and are gradually warmed up with heated air until the soldering paste melts and the flux vaporizes, which fuses the components to the PCB. After this stage, the boards are cooled off. As the tin in the soldering paste hardens, the components become permanently affixed to the board and the SMT assembly process is completed.

      For prototypes or highly sensitive components, we have a specialized vapor-phase soldering process. In this process, boards are heated until the specific melting point (Galden) of the soldering paste is reached. This allows us to solder at lower temperatures or solder different SMT components at different temperatures depending on their individual soldering temperature profiles.


      AOI and Visual Check

      Soldering is the second-to-last step of the SMT assembly process. In order to ensure the quality of the assembled boards, or to catch and correct a mistake, AOI visual inspections are performed for almost all series production orders. Using several cameras, the AOI system automatically checks each board and compares the appearance of each board with the correct, pre-defined reference image. If there are any deviations, the operator of the machine is informed of the potential problem, who then corrects the mistake or pulls the board from the machine for further inspection. The AOI visual check ensures consistency and accuracy in the SMT assembly production process.

      Xi highlights poverty reduction, int’l role in New Year speech:SMT is looking forward to solutions from China

      Let’s grow our ‘circle of friends’ .


      BEIJING – President Xi Jinping highlighted poverty reduction and China’s international role in his New Year speech Thursday.

      In an address transmitted live by state broadcasters, Xi called for confidence and hard work for a good beginning in the home stretch of building a “moderately prosperous society in all respects.”

      Xi said that a meeting of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in late October set out a promising and encouraging blueprint for development over the next five years.

      Xi noted that lifting tens of millions of rural people out of poverty was his top concern, and called for joint efforts to achieve this goal.

      “We should care for all people facing difficulties, making them feel warm from the bottom of their hearts,” Xi said.

      It is the third New Year speech Xi has given since 2013.


      Xi extended his New Year wishes to Chinese people of all ethnic groups, compatriots in Hong Kong and Macao, compatriots in Taiwan and overseas Chinese, as well as friends from other countries and regions.

      “In 2015, Chinese people gave a lot, and we received a lot too,” Xi said, citing the fact that the country’s economic growth continues to be among the fastest in the world, reforms are in full swing and there has been deepened judicial reform.

      The “three stricts and three earnests” campaign and anti-corruption fight have also been improving the country’s political environment.

      Xi recalled the large-scale commemoration for the 70th anniversary of victory in the Chinese People’s War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression and in the World Anti-Fascist War. During the event, Xi announced China will cut troops by 300,000.

      “Our commemorative activities and the grand military parade showcased the truth that justice will prevail, peace will prevail and the people will prevail,” Xi said.

      Xi noted that his meeting with Ma Ying-jeou in Singapore in November and their handshake, the first between leaders of the two sides of the Taiwan Strait in 66 years, reflected the common wish of compatriots from both sides for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.

      The president cited more milestone moments, including Beijing winning the bid to host the 24th Winter Olympics, the RMB’s inclusion into the currency basket of the Special Drawing Rights of the International Monetary Fund, China’s first homemade large passenger aircraft C919 rolling off the assembly line, Tianhe-2 supercomputer remaining the world’s most powerful system for the sixth consecutive time, the country’s first space telescope to search for signals of dark matter sent into space and Tu Youyou winning the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.

      “All these show us that, as long as we persevere, dreams will come true,” Xi said.

      “This year, we had joys, but we also had sorrows,” Xi said, recalling cruise ship Eastern Star capsizing, catastrophic fires and explosions at a chemical warehouse in Tianjin and the Shenzhen landslide.

      “These accidents led to many lives lost, and it’s also deeply harrowing that our compatriots were cruelly killed by terrorists,” Xi said. “We mourn them, and hope that the deceased rest in peace and the living are safe and healthy.”

      Recognizing that people still have difficulties and troubles, Xi vowed that the Party and the government will continue to make concrete efforts to protect people’s lives and property, improve their livelihoods and ensure their health.


      China must not be absent from international affairs, as the world is looking forward to voices and answers from China, Xi said.

      “The world is so big, the challenges so complicated, ” he said.

      “For those people torn by hardship and war, we need to offer not only sympathy and compassion, but also responsibility and action,” Xi said.

      “China will always welcome the world with an open embrace, and we will also extend our hand to those in difficulty as best as we can, and our ‘circle of friends’ will grow,” Xi said, borrowing a term from the popular messaging app WeChat.

      Throughout 2015, Xi said, China’s leaders have taken active part in international conferences and diplomatic activity, bringing substantial progresses in the “Belt and Road Initiative,” while contributing to the United Nations 2030 agenda for sustainable development and the global fight against climate change.

      He said, “We have only one earth, one home for the peoples of all nations.”

      Xi expressed his earnest hope that the international community could work together for peace, in a spirit of cooperation. “By turning antagonism to synergy, hostility to friendship, together we will forge a community of shared destiny for all humankind,” said the president.

      SMT and Auto Insertion Machine Critical 1 Spare Parts Definition

      Critical 1 Spare Parts Definition

      What are Critical 1 Spare Parts?

      Critical 1 (C1) parts are parts that may fail with no warning, may not show signs of wear, or may cause other parts to fail.  They cause a machine failure with no work around.  These are the parts that most concern our customers as their failure can stop a production line.  

      C1 parts are identified by engineering and product support teams during the product development/introduction process.  

      C1 lists are generated and tracked as part of the development cycle and are made available prior to shipments of production volumes to customers.

      As a guideline C1 parts will not be duplicated in RPKs.  There may be exceptions that will require cross functional agreement.  

      What is NOT typically considered a Critical 1 Spare Part:

      Consumables or wear parts

      High usage spares

      Exceptionally robust parts or assemblies

      General Hardware (typically) 

      What is the key difference between Critical 1 and Replacement Parts Kits (RPK)?

      Replacement parts kits (RPK) include items customers are expected to need within 6 months of use.  Examples of parts in the RPK includes consumables items, wearable parts and predictable failures.  

      Typical RPK items:


      Light bulbs


      Wearable tooling

      Hardware associated with general maintenance

      PC Board Design Checklist For Through Hole Components

      PC Board Design Checklist

      For Through Hole Components

      document should be used as a supplement to existing machine General
      Specifications and IM Design Guidelines. This document is designed as a checklist rather than a reference for use
      when examining an existing or new product. For detailed specifications
      refer to the appropriate General Specification.


      PC board considerations

      For Axial or Radial auto insertion:


      *  Is the overall size of the board within specification? (max/min size varies by machine and board handling type)

      *  Is the board thickness within specification?

      Possible challenges:

      can accept boards from 0.032” to 0.093” thick with no set up change,
      axial machines require mechanical adjustment to handle thickness

      *  If using automatic board handling, is the board shape acceptable? (i.e. contiguous edges.)

      Possible challenges:

      Non-contiguous edges, may work but requires testing. Example, instrument cluster.

       Is the board a good candidate for panelization? (i.e. creating
      multiple images of the same board on one panel for ease of assembly and
      increased throughput.)

      *  Is the board warpage within specification?

      Possible challenges:

      Warpage can cause issues with insertion as well as clinch angle/length, especially on radial machine.

      *  Does the PC board contain location reference holes to allow proper fixturing?

      Possible challenges:

      If product was previously hand assembled it may not have locating holes.

      *  Are the components positioned at 0º and/or 90º with respect to the X axis?

      Possible challenges:

      components are arranged at odd angles because of space constraints or
      because designer wanted to keep component body straight. (example: ECCO

      *  Are the component hole diameters within specification for each component type (lead diameter) being inserted?

      Possible challenges:

      Boards currently hand assembled are most likely to have undersize holes.

      *  Is there sufficient clearance below the board for the clinched component leads? Consider the following:

      *  Solder bridging to other component leads

      *  Solder bridging to via holes or adjacent pads

      Universal does not specify required clearance to prevent solder
      bridging, this should be determined by the customer. However, obvious
      cases of conflict should be noted.

      *  Is there sufficient clearance for the insertion and clinch tooling? Take into consideration:

      *  Previously inserted IM components

      *  Previously placed SM components

      *  Workboard holder locating and support fixtures

      *  Obstructions on the bottom of the board that could interfere with the clinch or board transfer.

      Component and tooling considerations



      *  Are components packaged properly for automatic insertion? (Tape and reel/ammo pack)

      Possible challenges:

      Customer may have “sample” components in bulk, are these components readily available in a taped format?

      *  Is the component input tape width (i.e. 26mm or “standard”) compatible with the component hole span?

      Possible challenges:

      does not offer a machine that can accept 26mm input. Virtually all
      components are available in 52mm format, however, a subcontractor may
      have to deal with “kits” from an OEM that contain 26mm components.

      *  Is the insertion tooling (i.e. 5mm, 5.5mm or standard) compatible with the component hole span?

      Possible challenges:

      the product include both very wide and very narrow span components?
      Use tooling selection matrix to evaluate best tooling fit.

      *  Is the component hole span compatible with the component body length?

      Possible challenges:

      Be especially careful when moving product from hand assembly to automatic assembly.

      *  Is the component body diameter compatible with the board thickness and insertion tooling requirements?

      Possible challenges:

      Watch out for very thick boards and/or large diameter components.

      *  Is the component lead diameter compatible with the insertion tooling? (i.e. standard vs. large lead)

      Possible challenges:

      May have to sacrifice (to hand assembly) some insertions at either the large end or the small end of the spectrum.

       Does the component require a stand off between the body and the PC
      board? Components requiring a stand off cannot be inserted with an
      axial inserter, but may be auto insertable with a radial inserter if
      packaged in the proper format.

      Possible challenges:

      “Stand-off” type resistors are more common where high power handling is required, power supplies, monitors, etc.


      *  Are components packaged properly for automatic insertion? (Tape and reel/ammo pack)

      Possible challenges:

      Customer may have “sample” components in bulk, are these components readily available in a taped format?

       If components are packaged on tape, use the following “quick check”
      list to get a general idea of which components may be automatically
      inserted: (See note 1 below)

      *  Body diameter 13.0mm or less

      *  “H” dimension (distance from centerline of feed hole to bottom of component) within acceptable limits

      *  Lead diameter within acceptable limits

      Possible challenges:

      taping specifications are quite involved, use “quick check” list as a
      sanity check, forward component samples to applications group for
      detailed evaluation.

       Are the lead spans of the components compatible with standard
      automatic radial insertion? (i.e. 2.5mm, 5.0mm, 7.5mm or 10.0mm) (See
      note 2 below)

      Possible challenges:

      1)  May have to “sacrifice” some components to hand assembly because of tooling footprint issues or span requirements.

      2)  Some PCB’s contain components are non-standard span’s, i.e. 2.0mm, 4.0mm.

      *  Are transistor leads in line? (i.e. not in a “triangle” configuration)

      *  If the component is required to stand off the PC board, are features built into the component lead to accomplish this?

      Possible challenges:

      designer may “require” a certain type of standoff without checking to
      see if the package is readily available, common with LED applications.



      1) The
      simplified guidelines were created to draw attention to the most common
      areas where components fall outside the limits for auto insertion.
      These simplified guidelines should only be used as a general guide.
      Component input must meet all criteria called out in the Radial General

      2)  Tooling selection will depend upon insertion span requirements as well as board density considerations.   Muniak98-052B  Revised 01-00
