    Question #5

    What are the latest technologies enhancing the business that you have been proactively implementing? What will the PGF Technology Group’s future be?

    With each release of the latest trusted technologies, PGF integrates machinery to advance high-quality assembly practices. At PGF, enhancing business translates to added technology throughout all assembly steps. For example, cable machines assist in wiring methods while PCB machines introduce more efficient PCB techniques. The future of PGF includes immense opportunities for growth with success both in monetary gain and individual development.

    Edge of Technology 

    The drive to constantly be on the edge of the next technological advancement is a PGF core value. PGF Technology Group is always utilizing the latest tools and practices.  Additionally, this drive comes from researching possible new industries of interest and prepping our facility to handle the most advanced projects. Across all PGF services, from cable assembly to prototyping, the company continues to integrate trusted technologies.  After all, if a company is not continuously growing, it falls behind.

    Yearly states of analysis give us the power to determine areas where improvement can bring the most progress. Everything starts with a plan and builds until it’s ready to be built again. This year, PGF is developing online training courses for new and tenured team members to deepen their skill sets and advance their careers – and PGF as a whole. The company has also digitized work instructions to create a more efficient assembly process, especially for new PGF members to accelerate their understanding of the procedures.

    Additionally, we have updated our facility’s layout to increase resourcefulness and enhance workflow from concept to quality check to delivery. After all, a greatly flowing river becomes harder and harder to stop, just as PGF’s progress is becoming harder to slow down. A yearly investment of 2-5% of the annual budget goes toward machine updates. All in all, this facility update includes the universal usage of more automated tools over their manual counterparts, effectively improving assembly time and accuracy.  

    The PGF Future

    PGF can summarize its future in one word: Growth. Each team member‘s improvement works to bring new perspectives and opportunities to our partners. As CEO, Naji Gebara leads the company by lifting others while openly accepting constructive criticism as a means of progress. Adding internal employee skillset builder modules demonstrates PGF’s devotion to improvement. Overall, we expect to expand our services to include more design capabilities and extend our properties to continue expediting the assembly process.

  2. Why Is It Important to Be on the Edge of Technology?

    Leave a Comment


    You are searching for a manufacturer on the edge of technology to partner with for your new PCB assembly project. 

    Company A and B both offer low volume, high mix capability for PCB assemblies. Company A has the most effective technology to perform highly replicable automated processes alongside manual assembly. At the same time, Company B relies on mainly manual labor and has not replaced its machinery in 10 years. Both assembly methods can be effective, but one shortens the timeline and increases product accuracy. 

    Which company do you choose? 


    What Does “Edge of Technology” Mean?

    The phrase “Edge of Technology” refers to a company constantly remaining ahead of the curve in the latest machinery and equipment. Specifically, this phrase has a connotation that includes a look into the future. In essence, I mean that the word “edge” alludes to something about to move forward; it predicts movement that propels and builds kinetic energy. To clarify, an edge represents the end of a corner and the beginning of another, forcing a step onward. 

    As can be seen in manufacturing, staying informed about upcoming trends and techniques allows a company to predict its next moves in new machine purchase, installation, and usage


    Why is it Important to Be Constantly Innovating?

    Ultimately, the push to constantly innovate is about staying one step ahead of the customer and competition. In terms of a partnership, both sides must match up to expectations. For example, if a customer requires the newest model of a specific machine that you do not have, then they will find a different partner.

    Electronic Manufacturing Suppliers (EMS) must think about a customer’s future projects. To be a proper solutions provider, you have to answer the question before it’s asked. This practice begins with prediction, preparation, and execution. In this case, a manufacturer must reflect on:

    For which industries do I want to do assembly?

    Specific industries may have certain technologies that manufacturers must use to complete a project. This distinction is especially true in advanced Medical Devices and the highly inventive EV Power Industry.

    Where are these industries headed?

    Any manufacturing company must remain privy to the advances driving ambitious projects. From trade shows to industry updates, companies have to envision the next direction for their current and potential customers. 

    What machinery do the potential projects require?

    In order to prepare for the future, companies must have close relationships with their customers to learn about the needed machinery. Collaborations between growing businesses allow for a wide range of innovation with an emphasis on state-of-the-art equipment.

    At this point, for PCB Assembly, Cable Harness Assembly, and Wire Processing, PGF utilizes advanced operational technology

    With an array of Schleuniger machines for crimping, stripping, and terminating, wires can be processed and sorted quickly with a team of skilled workers operating the machine and perfecting the project. 

    On the other (electronic) side, Selective Soldering machines, Solder Paste Inspection (SPI), and Surface-Mount Technology (SMT) lines place components accurately on their respective PCBs and use reflow soldering to keep them in place. Our team utilizes a Fuji Line and MyData Line to assemble various volumes of PCBAs. 

    An X-Ray machine, In-Circuit Testing devices, and Automated Optical Inspection (API) machines allow close quality inspection. These machines act as second eyes to check PCBA performance.

    With many additional automated and hand equipment, we raise the bar to move forward continuously.
