JJS EMS Adds DEK ProActiv Process Technology
Lutterworth, UK — Contract manufacturing specialist, JJS Electronics Ltd., has adopted DEK's new ProActiv technology at its production facilities in the UK. This is the latest part of a large-scale, seven-figure investment program that to enhance the company's production facilities in the UK and the Czech Republic.

In addition to the new production, engineering and development specialists, the company has introduced new state-of-the-art equipment for screen printing, pick-and-place and SMT reflow capabilities along with the latest optical inspection and flying probe technologies.

According to DEK, ProActiv technology is a breakthrough process technology for the challenges of miniaturization, ProActiv rewrites the area ratio rules that limit conventional printing with smaller stencil apertures.

JJS Manufacturing Manager Frazer Hayton said, "Here at JJS, we're continually innovating in terms of the services we can offer our customers. For this reason, we were naturally interested in ProActiv's potential. Having beta tested the technology in partnership with DEK, we're delighted with the results. We're enjoying cleaner print cycles — paste comes out consistently so we know that the first print of the batch will be the same as the last. The technology has afforded our engineers larger process windows, so we have more process room to work with. This means we can be extremely confident delivering on new business, with finer pitches and more intricate designs. For our customers, it means we have enhanced our ability to meet their mixed technology challenges even further, including through-hole PCBA, SMT PCBA and electro-mechanical projects."

With facilities in the UK and The Czech Republic, JJS delivers a full range of EMS services including design for test, design for manufacturing, PCB assembly, box build assembly, precision mechatronics and full system assembly. The company recently gained AS9100 accreditation for its electronics manufacturing facilities in both the UK & Czech Republic.
