The sky is not the limit
it's just the start
The applications that E-reon is focusing on are very wide, ranging from passive modules for aerospace and defense, RF heating solutions for industrial and medical applications, to fully customized turn key solutions. All with one thing in common: highest quality and reliable electronics. Also in high end quality demanding markets such as these, the time to market and fast response to changing requirements is of the essence. In order to make sure that the company stays on top of the game, it has recently invested in the Essemtec Fox Pick & Place with integrated dispenser and the IBL Vapor phase soldering system BLC.
“Before this investment we were dependent on external companies to produce our prototypes” says Andreas Koroulis, Owner at E-reon. “This was adding logistical effort and was prohibiting us from optimizing our DFM practices. An additional challenge was the complexity of our assemblies that requires placement of components into cavities like in cases of metal back pcbs .”
In addition to the placement challenges, also the soldering process required a solution for soldering high mass components into cavities and DBC solid copper backplates to PCB's. A challenge that led the company to the IBL vapor phase machine that from the very first test made a perfect soldering result.
Since the implementation of the rapid prototyping center, the company has been able to drastically reduce the time to market, increase its process engineering knowledge which helps the quality of their future designs and innovations. The companies customers now have the unique possibility to have both their development and production at the same supplier.
