Description:IAM Hourly represented employees who currently work at the main (Sunnyvale/Palo Alto) unit, Santa Cruz, VAFB or Eastern Range facilities must apply to open requisitions on Brass Ring to be considered for the position.

Perform all operations in the manufacture and rework of surface mount technology (SMT), Plated Through Hole (PTH), and mixed technology (such as SMT and PTH) printed wiring assemblies and related technologies using computer aided and manually operated machinery. Perform equipment set-up, operation, and product and process verification.

Job Tasks:

Working directly from shop documents such as Company or customer specifications, Manufacturing Process Standards (MPS), blueprints, change notices, engineering notes or verbal direction, perform the following duties to produce fully acceptable SMT, PTH and mixed technology hardware:

Form components using manual and automated tools. Set-up, operate, and maintain the automated component tinning machine.

Ensure the segregation and accurate inventory of various customers' SMT and mixed technology components utilizing local kit carousel or locked inventory storage. Electronically record component usage data per engineering direction using bar code technology or manual recording.

Test solder paste for acceptability. Operate both automated and manual screen printing equipment. Operate automated adhesive application equipment. Manually apply adhesive as required. Mix and degas multi-component materials prior to application.

Set-up machinery for automated ("pick and place") and manual placement. Ensure that components are correctly loaded in automated feeders or carousels. Initialize equipment, verifying satisfactory process operation before beginning production runs.

Set-up and operate continuous or batch hot nitrogen reflow ovens for solder paste reflow and adhesive curing.

Utilize automated or manual cleaning equipment which operates with either a solvent or aqueous system. Ensure that cleaned product meets standards required for further processing.

Perform all necessary rework and repair of components, using semi-automatic removal and placement equipment. Set-up and operate solder paste dispensing machine to produce correct dispensing location and quantity for each component type. Includes removal and replacement of fine lead pitch parts.

With minimal direction, perform all component installation operations associated with PTH printed wiring boards. Perform component traceability, preparation (tinning and forming) and installation using available tools. Verify correct component polarity and installation per engineering instruction and referenced specifications. Ensure component integrity during PTH component installation on mixed technology boards. Operate wave solder machine for PTH component soldering . Rework PTH components as required, providing protection from possible board damage (heat or physical component damage) during desoldering, removal, replacement and hand soldering operations.

Verify process results and resultant hardware quality. Record, plot and evaluate Statistical Process Control data to ensure maintenance of optimum, controlled SMT and PTH or related processes. Identify undesirable trends/concerns to methods engineering and work together to resolve anomalies.
