Automated Assembly Corporation®

Traditional flexible circuitry was used to create inter-connects for hardboards and sub assemblies. The old circuitry was clunky and difficult to work with.  Automated Assembly™ engineers fully assembled flexible circuits to create products that use less space.  Automated’s flexible circuitry is ultra light weight, yet it scores very high for material stability, density, and flexibility. Industry designers agree that flex circuitry provides tremendous options for utilizing valuable space.

Automated Assembly continuously invests in new technology.  Acquiring the most state-of-the-art equipment is important to designing manufacturing processes that push our own automation limits. Automated Assembly intends to remain at the front end of new technology and be a leader in electronic assembly on flex circuitry.

Automated Assembly™ has many proprietary process for manufacturing on flexible circuitry.  Our team of experienced development engineers have worked to refine these processes over the years. Our clients can have confidence in the quality and efficiency of our automation.  We believe that investment in automation is the key to zero defect assembly and continuous cost reduction. We’ve listed some of our most recent manufacturing equipment investments below.

In 2008, Automated Assembly Corporation® received certification through Orion Registrar, Inc. USA.

This certification underscores the quality design and manufacturing of contract surface technology at AAC.  Orion Registrar is a quality and environmental systems registrar with partners and associates located throughout the United States and the world.  Orion specializes in audits to the following quality

Automated Assembly Recent Investments

  • Automatic Optical Inspection or “AOI” of all solder joints, part numbers, and polarities.
  • Robotic packaging cells to give one final inspect of the product before the circuits are shipped.
  • Automated blanking of circuits, with soft or hard tool
  • Bar code capability for tracking in the medical markets.

What is the internet of things?

The parade of new technologies and scientific breakthroughs is relentless and is unfolding on many fronts.  Almost any advance is billed as a breakthrough and the list of “next big things” grows ever longer.  Yet some technologies do in fact have the potential to disrupt the status quo, alter the way people live and work, rearrange value pools, and lead to entirely new products and services.  Business leaders can’t wait until evolving technologies are having these effects to determine which developments are truly big things.

Frequent new products and category innovation define and redefine the sector’s constantly shifting landscape. But lately we’ve seen even greater volatility than usual, and it has begun to affect the makeup of hardware and software companies themselves. Increasingly, technology firms are reexamining the structure of their businesses and market share are under siege from disruptive, often well-funded startups and aggressive competitors. The competition, in turn, has made customers more demanding. They are seeking greater performance, better features, and more platform independence and flexibility at the lowest price point possible. 

The primary driving force behind any innovation is the ability to produce and sell products based on market demand.  The good news is the economic forecast for the foreseeable future is that no downturn in the economy is in sight for at least the next 18 months in spite of the correction that is happening today due to a lackluster forecast for China. 

As fast as innovation has multiplied and spread in recent years, it is poised to change and grow at an exponential speed beyond the power of our ability to anticipate that change.  The “golden rule” of Moore’s Law in 1965 in the electronics industry was a springboard for innovation. The economic impact of increased performance and cost are two key drivers for not only technology development but overall productivity; as more transistors fit into smaller spaces, processing power increased and energy efficiency improves, at a lower cost. This process increases productivity and spawned whole new industries empowered by more computing power.

Processing power and connectivity delivers unprecedented amounts of information to consumers and businesses.  Thanks to the growth of technology more people will enjoy a golden age of gadgetry, of instant communication, and of boundless information.  The fast pace of technological adoption and innovation is shortening the life cycle of companies and forcing executives to make decisions and commit resources more quickly.

The world is changing. The Internet is spreading from our computers to nearly everything we own or come in contact with on a daily basis. Wearable technology is one example that makes it possible connect clothing, accessories, or monitor your health without seeing a doctor; 3D printing brings manufacturing to masses delivering a variety of materials from plastics and fibre to growing nano-parts for humans; and new inventions make it possible to run your home and office from any device in the world. These shifts have a huge impact on how we live, work, play and think.
