Dear Electronics Assembly Colleague:  

We are in the season of apple picking in the Midwest as the beautiful colors paint the sky-fiery reds, oranges and yellows are everywhere!

  

BEST is back to work after our BTC seminar (see right) where we played bocce and  were able to get some strong "take aways" from our great speakers.   

  


BEST is now activating a referral rewards program. Several of you have been so kind to refer us on to friends. You will now be given a $25.00 gift certificate  if a new customer calls and places an order based on a referral or if you send us an email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) giving us a "heads up" that someone is sending us work. Thanks for your referrals! 

Wishing you continued success.

Selective Laser Mask Removal "Saves" Boards  

             Example laser etched trace filled over with solder mask  

    

There are times when a test point gets missed, a Gerber connection is not made or a trace needs to be extended.  You may end up with thousands of boards that  under normal conditions would have to be scrapped. BEST laser technicians can design a "fix" by selectively ablating the solder mask off in certain areas of the board. In some cases, missing copper patterns can be "added back" where they were missing. More information on the laser ablation process can be found here.
