New Machines at the New HQ
An exciting part of our new headquarters is that it affords us the space needed to expand our manufacturing line. We took delivery of this equipment months ago, and have been excited to get it setup!
New Soldering Machine
While our building is still not quite ready for us to move in, we decided to set up our selective soldering and conformal coating machines. These additions augment our current Surface Mount Technology (aka SMT) array of machinery by automating some of our more time intensive build tasks. Our new soldering setup precisely solders through hole components onto the PCBs which are assembled in house. A conveyor then transports the board to the conformal coating machine.
Conformal Coating Line
FireBoard has always applied a layer of silicone to their PCBs. This layer protects the board from dust and dirt and prevents corrosion. Up until now, we have been coating our boards by hand. This new automated process will increase production efficiency and allow us to focus on other hands-on jobs that will help us grow.

Assembly Line History
FireBoard initially started assembling their circuit boards in 2019 when they implemented their current SMT assembly line that consisted of a Juki G-Titan, Juki Rs-1 and a BTU Pyromax Oven.

The SMT line is scheduled to be moved over to the new FireBoard HQ soon!
