Nortech Systems Collaborates with Panasonic to Expand Manufacturing Capabilities in Mankato, Minn. 
New SMT Technology Offers Improved Speed and Quality

October 25, 2017 – Minneapolis – Nortech Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ: NSYS) and Panasonic have collaborated on a new, total-line-solution installation of integrated hardware and software. It provides enhanced Surface Mount Technology (SMT) component placement capability and quality while increasing efficiency and Statistical Process Control (SPC) at Nortech’s manufacturing facility in Mankato, Minnesota. 

“This significant investment in Panasonic SMT equipment and PanaCIM® software, along with Koh Young automated 3D optical inspection and solder paste inspection equipment, helps us serve our customers better and faster,” says Jamey Born, Nortech Systems’ EMS product manager. This new SMT technology can place smaller components, which expands Nortech’s capabilities to build much smaller printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) for medical device, industrial and aerospace/defense customers. “With SPC for manufacturing, we now have real-time process monitoring that allows us to monitor and control our SMT production,” Born adds. 

For more than 25 years, Nortech Systems has provided world-class electronics manufacturing services (EMS) – from early stage product development and engineering through production, supply chain management and fulfillment. Nortech Systems has established a reputation for technical expertise, engineering excellence and superior customer service.
