Lighting Manufacturer Outsources to Imet for Pcb Assembly of LED Boards


Southampton, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2014 -- This 132-year-old company has lit a glowing welcome for millions who visit buildings, malls, restaurants, parks and other well-traveled but tastefully decorated public places. Their popular lighting fixtures, poles and accessories in traditional or modern designs have been the obvious choice of architects, designers and commercial property owners.

In keeping with today’s environmental demands, the company recently developed a new line of LED commercial lighting fixtures that generate brighter area lighting with less power consumption. IMET was called upon to develop electronics that overcame thermal and high-voltage issues associated with this type of LED lighting and resolved them with special materials and custom-designed printed circuit board assemblies.

The drivers of today’s complex electronic products are printed circuit board assemblies that contain numerous subminiature components and subassemblies. Super accurate PCB assembly is usually achieved with automated equipment whose costs can exceed a million or more dollars. IMET’s 15,000 sq. ft. facility in Southampton, PA houses not one but three automated lines that can achieve PC board assembly speeds of up to 10,500 components per hour. Other functions accomplished by automation include automatic optical inspection (AOI) and x-ray. Soldering is also accomplished with microprocessor-controlled equipment as well as with automated multi-zoned ovens.
