Alan Butcher Components Ltd News and PR from Alan Butcher Components Ltd - Published 27 January 2020 PIC Expanding Reed Sensor Production Capabilities
Our reed switch and reed sensor supplier, PIC GmbH has been investing heavily over the past three years to enhance various aspects of their reed sensor production capabilities:

• automation
• new production lines
• high end machinery

The aim has been to increase their competitive advantage by reducing production times and improving cost-efficiency.

Reed sensor engineering capabilities

- 2D/3D drawing CAD systems
- Rapid prototyping and 3D printing for bespoke sensor designs
- Electrical, mechanical and magnetic testing equipment
- Support in certification processes
- IQC and outgoing inspection processes for all material and finished goods

Reed sensor production capabilities

- Automated Reed Switch sorting and testing
- Automated Reed Switch cutting and bending
- High-class cable processing equipment for cutting, stripping, tinning, crimping and connector assembly
- Flexible tools that easily adapt to all kinds of cables and connectors
- Sensor manufacturing lines with auto-potting, quality checks and computer-controlled curing process
- Automated SMT lines with pick & place machines and modern reflow ovens
- Test laboratory including climate chambers, salt spray tests, microscopy, and material testing
- Auto packing including tap e& reel options, with MSL 5a sealing for long shelf-life of SMD products
- 100% outgoing inspection and tests

We would particularly like to draw your attention to their state-of-the art cable processing centre. Rather than having to use a third party assembler, PIC can now cut, strip, attach terminals and connectors to standard products as per your specification. This is all fully automated and virtually all cable and connector types can be processed.
