UA Board Line Gets LeanerOur Manufacturing facility in Tucson, Arizona (USA) has seen some improvements this year in the areas of conformal coating, hand soldering, and wave soldering. This follows a focused effort to improve the company's Lean Manufacturing designs to help increase efficiency and quality to meet increasing demands.

Lean Manufacturing involves the systematic elimination of seven specific forms of waste: Defects, Overproduction, Transportation, Waiting, Inventory, Motion, and Processing. Over the past two years, we have increased board line output by 134%, with even more improvements planned.
