- Reflow oven operation. Sorta like a pizza oven but way way different. Kinda.
- Selective Soldering - our newest piece of automated assembly, but will be a critical piece of the puzzle.
- Taking initiative to get the equipment operations area up and running if first to arrive. General start-up procedures.
- Coordinating with other Equipment Operators in order to streamline the entire PCB assembly process and make us as efficient as possible.
- Multi-tasking on another level previously never achieved by mankind.
- Soldering of PTH components on initial panel to allow for testing.
- Complete inspection and testing of each initial panel before continuing with full production run.
- Basic time management to forecast the completion of a build.
- Accurately record build times utilizing SparkFun production tools (software).
- Perform general maintenance on equipment when applicable.
- Accurately identify basic electronic components and define basic terms.
- Basic soldering ability.
