Z-Axis Announces Contract Manufacturing Services to Deliver Lead-free, RoHS-compliant Electronic Products

Phelps, NY (PRWEB) March 16, 2006

Z-Axis, Inc., a provider of contract electronics manufacturing services in upstate New York, today announced its ability to manufacture electronic products that are lead-free and in full compliance with the European RoHS (Reduction of Hazardous Substances) directive.


Electronic product OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) must address RoHS today if they hope to meet the July 2006 compliance deadline, said Peter Growney, global sales manager at Z-Axis. We have invested in the latest solder, reflow and testing equipment to insure that the products we make for our OEM clients meet or exceed RoHS standards today.


RoHS limits the amount of certain hazardous substances that may be present in an electronic product destined for the European market. These substances include lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, PBBs, and PBEs.


Z-Axis has deployed the latest technology for RoHS-compliant manufacturing. For example, it uses high-performance X-Ray fluorescence spectrometry to inspect incoming components and PCBs (printed circuit boards) for very low concentrations of lead and other RoHS-regulated substances.


This testing, along with the companys no-lead wave solder line, allows Z-Axis to produce finished printed circuit boards that not only meet the requirements of RoHS, but are lead-free and safe for use in the OEMs lead-free manufacturing lines. This is an important distinction, as a component that meets all RoHS standards may nonetheless have enough lead on the pins to contaminate a lead-free solder operation.


In addition to contract manufacturing and assembly, Z-Axis can source and procure lead-free and RoHS-compliant components for its OEM customers. It also offers incoming inspection of components and PCBs provided by the OEM for assembly.
