QC Is Top of the Line at IMET
Southampton, PA — Even today's most advanced printers, placers and reflow ovens are prone to an occasional error, due to a misplaced part or minor glitch. However, every assembly turned out by IMET is subject to intense scrutiny by Quality Control Leader Glendalys Pedraza and her trusty equipment team consisting of Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) and X-Ray (for BGAs) plus her omnipresent microscope. Once this escape-proof net identifies a defect, Glendalys relegates the board to rework and/or repair. Only after she conducts a second inspection and ascertains that the specified changes were made, will she pronounce the board perfect and o.k. for shipment.

IMET provides a full range of product development services, including design, electronics engineering, prototyping, PCB assembly and contract manufacturing. Its 15,000 sq. ft. facility in suburban Philadelphia is staffed by seven engineers and support personnel who manage three automated PCB assembly lines and accompanying inspection and work stations. Industries served include medical equipment, automotive, military and aerospace, as well as consumer products ranging from electronic toys and games to multi-application interactive devices.
