Corintech was founded in 1977 as a family-run electronics manufacturing business. Operating globally, they pride themselves on their cutting edge, high quality and competitive PCB assembly services. The aerospace and defence industries make up a significant portion of their client base. Other sectors they supply include medical, industrial, oil and gas, energy, automotive and more. The flexibility of their printed circuit board assembly services (including both small and large batch and fast turnaround options) means they are able to cater to a vast range of customers.
Corintech’s selective soldering system utilised high purity Nitrogen (N2) sourced from high pressure cylinders. This source was high cost, time consuming and dangerous for employees to manually handle so they were looking for an alternative.
Maziak were able to provide a gas generation solution with an attractive payback on investment and some considerable enhancements to their operation. We installed a MIDIGAS6NCALA Parker Nitrogen Generator rated @ 3.2 m3/h @ 6.7 barg, purity > 99.99% (100ppm). Existing spare air compressor capacity was utilised as the source for the nitrogen generator supply. This supply is on site, on demand and high quality (the quality of the gas being generated is permanently displayed on LCD).
This solution is:
Not only is Corintech now benefitting from all of the elements listed above—reduced cost, improved safety and increased reliability, but the new system can deliver enough Nitrogen generation capacity for a future 2nd selective soldering machine at no extra cost. This would not have been possible with their existing arrangements.
