At OX3, we specialize in crafting tailored solutions for semiconductor packaging, addressing the unique challenges in your assembly processes. Our commitment to personalized solutions goes beyond industry norms, ensuring meticulous attention to detail for reliable product performance.

With a dedication to going above and beyond, our problem-solving approach, shaped by extensive experience with automotive clients such as Harley-Davidson, guarantees precision and excellence in your processes. Let us illustrate this commitment through a brief case study showcasing the transformative impact of our personalized packaging of Harley-Davidson's metal clip component of its voltage regulator.

How OX3 Identified Challenges and Implemented Tailored Solutions:

1. Solderability Enhancement:

Harley-Davidson faced challenges with residue affecting solderability due to water in the cleaning bath. Our solution involved implementing a meticulous wash/packaging procedure, ensuring optimal solderability and metal clip quality.

2. Material Contamination Mitigation:

To address material contamination during shipping, we proposed modifying the box to reduce sulphur content, safeguarding the integrity of the metal clips throughout the shipping process.

3. Robust Packaging for Protection:

Our innovation included quoting thicker bags and introducing double-bagging for interior packaging, significantly enhancing protection during shipping and minimizing the risk of damage from foreign contaminants.

4. Just-in-Time Production Efficiency:

Implementing a just-in-time production strategy elevated efficiency, achieving a burn rate of 22,000 units per week. This not only ensured a consistent supply but also optimized inventory management for Harley-Davidson.

5. Gripper Nozzle Implementation for Flawless Picks:

By adopting gripper nozzles for flawless pick-up from the carrier tape we successfully addressed pick and place issues. This ensured a seamless assembly process without compromising on the rectangular pocket design.

6. Tilt Prevention and Part Containment:

Introduction of vertical ribs in the carrier pocket prevented tilting and rolling during transport, enhancing part containment and overall reliability.

7. Notched Area for Minimized Vestige Hang-up:

We participated in discussions to redesign the metal clip to include a notch. This minimized the potential for any hang-ups due to vestiges of metal and contributed to a smooth assembly process.

8. Draft Angle Adjustment for Improved Fit:

Exploration of reducing the draft angle from 3 to 1.5 degrees improved the fit of the part in the pocket, enhancing overall efficiency in the assembly process.
