Seika and Cogiscan announce partnership to Offer MSD Control for McDry Cabinets

12 May 2020
BROMONT, CANADA, May 12, 2020 — Cogiscan, the Leading Track, Trace and Control (TTC) solutions provider for the electronics manufacturing industry, is proud to announce its partnership with Seika to provide MSD Control for its McDry cabinets. As a result of the collaboration, Seika now offers precise tracking of the real-time location and remaining floor life of individual trays and reels containing MSDs – from the time they are removed from their protective dry bag, through placement, and final reflow.
Accurate adherence to the challenging guidelines and specifications of the J-STD-033 for Moisture Sensitive Devices (MSDs) can be a demanding task during circuit board assembly. Whether you rely on simplified procedures or over-bake your MSDs to be more conservative, you are likely wasting time and money as well as exposing yourself to actual failures in the field.

Cogiscan’s intelligent and automated MSD Control application is the ideal solution to better control and accurately track MSDs throughout your facility. With the introduction of MSD Control, Cogiscan has deciphered the complex rules, calculations and guidelines of the J-STD and simplified them into a single, simple and automated solution. With the MSD Control solution, users no longer need to remember complicated formulas nor keep track of hand-written calculations in order to keep circuit board assemblies with MSDs in full compliance.
” The Cogiscan team is proud to partner with our friends at Seika Machinery Inc to overcome the logistical challenges associated with Moisture Sensitive Device (MSD) control in electronics manufacturing. Together we offer a holistic and factory-wide solution that simplifies and streamlines internal procedures while also ensuring product quality and long term reliability. ”
