Seika Machinery, Inc., a provider of advanced machinery, materials and engineering services, announced that it has partnered with Cogiscan to provide MSD Control for its McDry cabinets. As a result of the collaboration, the company offers precise tracking of the real-time location and remaining floor life of individual trays and reels containing MSDs – from the time they are removed from their protective dry bag, through placement, and final reflow.
Accurate adherence to the challenging guidelines and specifications of the J-STD-033 for Moisture Sensitive Devices (MSDs) can pose a challenge during circuit board assembly. Whether simplified procedures or over-bake MSDs is used to be more conservative, time and money is likely wasted as well as being exposed to actual failures in the field.
Cogiscan’s intelligent and automated MSD Control application is the ideal solution to better control and accurately track MSDs throughout facilities. With the introduction of this application, the company has deciphered the complex rules, calculations and guidelines of the J-STD and simplified them into a single, simple and automated solution. With the MSD Control solution, users no longer need to remember complicated formulas nor keep track of hand-written calculations in order to keep circuit board assemblies with MSDs in full compliance.
