ITW EAE provides electronics manufacturing and assembly production solutions for a wide range of markets that use electronics either as entire systems (such as smartphones) or in part (such as the ‘brain box’ microcomputer in an automobile). These markets include consumer electronics, military and aerospace systems, industrial controls and manufacturing, industrial robotics, and more. Electronics systems manufactured using ITW EAE technology find their way into every corner of our lives, from medical devices, monitors, and laboratory equipment to telecommunications and the appliances in kitchens.
ITW EAE’s primary market is electronics assembly, including Surface Mount (SMT), through-hole, and mixed technology printed circuit boards (PCBs). This global market is served by all ITW EAE product lines, i.e., stencil printing, dispensing, reflow soldering, wave soldering, selective soldering and cleaning.
Robust electronic circuit assemblies are at the heart of today’s industrial controls, which include devices such as motor starters, contactors, control centers, and programmable logic controllers, and range from servomechanisms to instrumentation.
The stringent demands of high reliability (hi-rel) electronics systems for military, aerospace, and government applications are continually met by ITW EAE’s production equipment, used to build battlefield-ready, ruggedized circuitry in lead-free and traditional lead-bearing circuitry configurations.
