Company remodeling electronics product development with new smart factory in San Francisco and significant updates to its factory automation software
San Francisco - February 5, 2019 — Tempo Automation, the world's fastest electronics manufacturer for prototyping and low-volume production of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA), announces the starting of a new smart factory in San Francisco. Highlighted at MD&M West in Tempo Automation's Booth #4084, the company has also released new product software updates as part of its continued mission to improve the way electrical engineers, product designers, With its impressive expansion in high-growth markets, including medical technology, aerospace and defense, industrial automation, and autonomous and electric vehicles, Tempo needed to enhance its production capacity, opening a new 42,000 square foot smart factory in San Francisco's Design District in August 2018. Tempo's new factory immediately doubled the company's production capacity, with space to expand output even more to accommodate its customers' growing demands. The new factory also includes more business office space to house Tempo's growing software, sales, and marketing teams, which have more than doubled in the last year.
'Tempo has seen tremendous growth over the last year as more customers in a range of industries see how we can help them get great products to market faster. Our proprietary automation software enables our factory to produce complex printed circuit board assemblies with unmatched quality and speed,' says Jeff McAlvay, CEO, Tempo Automation. 'By delivering improved speed, reliability, and transparency to our customers, Tempo empowers innovators to bring their designs to market faster—a boon for competitive industries like medtech, aerospace, industrial automation, consumer electronics, and automotive.'
Quickening the product development cycle from design to manufacture, Tempo recently delivered a host of significant product software updates. With these updates, Tempo further empowers engineers to bring their electronics products to market faster.
Tempo's new product software updates include:
•              The Tempo Order Tracker
At each stage of the manufacturing process, the Order Tracker automatically displays status updates—from the initial order, throughout the SMT and inspection processes on the factory floor, to shipment—giving the customer real-time visibility into the progress of their board build.
•              Tempo's Automatic Pick and Place Machine Programming software
Tempo's factory is auto-configured for production, as the system analyzes the CAD files and Bill of Material (BOM) data customers upload via the company's secure web portal. Each machine in the production line is programmed automatically, and a build plan is uploaded as a digital traveler to the devices that factory employees use. This update enables Tempo to yield even faster production of PCB assemblies and on-time delivery.
•              Tempo's Automated Optical Inspection Auto-Program Generation software
New software updates from Tempo further the company's ability to deliver high complexity designs at unparalleled quality and speed by making the automated inspection of finished PCB assemblies both more thorough and faster.
While more recent widespread use of 3D printing technologies has made a significant impact on how medical devices are manufactured, PCBA design and manufacturing—core to many new innovations—remains a bottleneck in the product development process. At MD&M West, Tempo will discuss their new smart factory and product news, as well as express how Tempo can help med-tech engineers more quickly perfect their designs. Tempo has revealed a case study that covers their work with GE Healthcare, including the manufacture of complex designs and the construction and programming of a test fixture for design testing.
As part of their mission to empower developers to work with manufacturers throughout the entire build process, Tempo also releases a new book, Design for Manufacturing for HDI Printed Circuit Boards: What You Need to Know for Board Build Success. Focused on HDI (High Density Interconnect) PCBA builds, the new literature details the source of HDI manufacturing challenges and shows how engineers can prevent the blocks that compromise manufacturability.and manufacturers bring their innovations to market.
