Vizinex RFID, the industry leader in developing and manufacturing high-performance RFID tags tailored to specific applications, has added new manufacturing equipment to its facility.
The new equipment, the ASM MCM12 and a SCARA (Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm), will enable Vizinex RFID to increase its tag assembly capacity by approximately 30 percent while increasing productivity.
“These investments not only speak to our success to date – but to the growing need to accurately track assets in a variety of industries and the role of radio frequency technology in that effort,” said Sandra Garby, president and VP of operations, Vizinex RFID. “Vizinex RFID is ready and able to support those industries as we grow globally from our home base in the Lehigh Valley, thanks, in part, to the acquisition of this new equipment.”
The ASM MCM12 is an automatic multi-chip module bonder and the latest multi-chip modules packaging solution from ASM Pacific Technology. It is the industry standard in supporting various assembly processes and materials handling. Vizinex will use the equipment primarily for its high-precision, direct die placement capabilities, which will improve the workflow of bonding microchips to RFID tags.
SCARA has a two-link arm layout (similar to that of a human arm), and will be used primarily to automate the RFID testing process. The SCARA is generally faster and cleaner than humans and other systems and eliminates the potential for error in the testing process. The robot eliminates a highly repetitive task associated with the testing process and frees our production staff for more challenging and productive tasks.
Vizinex RFID relocated to a 5,500-square-foot Bethlehem manufacturing facility in February 2018. Learn more about the company and its new facility here.
