  Printed Circuit Boards used in McIntosh products are made with the help  of this Insertion Machine.   The machine solders electronic parts onto PCBs with complete precision & accuracy.  
              This employee is feeding PCBs onto the Insertion Machine.   Resistors, Caps, and other electronics are soldered onto the PCB  automatically.
              This is the back of the INSERTION MACHINE, where resistors & other electronic parts are fed into it.
               

 

   When the insertion machine are finished with the PCBs, they are sent to the soldering machine

  which runs the board over a tank of liquid solder at temperature of 500 degree, if I hadn't remember incorrectly.

 

 

  

 

 

 

    Here, you see an actual board going over liquid solder.

 

  

 

    

 

After  PCBs come out of the machine, they are ready for larger components to be hand soldered onto them.

 

To the left, we have the chief of plant operations

Mr. Dan Graves.

 

 

     

   This is the area for hand soldering & other intensive technical labor.

 

    

Each circuit board is individually tested by Technicians against specification.

      You will see some  Test Equipments Below
