Firstly, we would like to thank everyone who visited us at the Hetech stand during Electronex 2018 in Sydney. Hetech also took the opportunity attend the coinciding SMCBA training courses, improving our engineering capabilities and provide a superior design and manufacturing service for our customers.
Did you catch Mark Steiner’s presentation on conformal coating in the manufacturing industry?
Conformal coating material is a thin polymeric film that is applied to circuit boards, providing a protective layer against UV, dust and moisture.

In response to the significant increase in demand for electronic engineering services from industries such as defence, Queensland-based electronics design and manufacturing company, Hetech, is collaborating with selected local engineering companies to increase its design capacity of up to 20 engineers.
With projects such as the LAND400: Phase 2 landing in Queensland, collaboration between local engineers in the electronics industry is now essential. Collaboration enables projects to be completed effectively, and will also ensure the continuation of large revenue-generating projects and engineering job creation in Queensland and Australia.
Hetech Managing Director, Mark Steiner emphasised, “For Hetech, the electronics industry and the Australian economy to grow, we must work together and increase our capacity for engineering and manufacturing services.”
Frequently exposing Australian SME manufacturers to larger projects will lead to a much more efficient manufacturing process; keeping production costs down, more exporting opportunities and job growth in Australia.
As a firm believer in collaboration, Mark Steiner states that part of Hetech’s expansion plans will include discussions with interstate companies to broaden Hetech’s capabilities even further. In addition, Hetech is committed to continue investing heavily in its internal engineering team, reinforcing development within the company to strengthen specialised skills and overall project management.

Hetech now has a brand new state of the art conformal coating machine!
What does a conformal coating machine do? It applies a protective chemical coating or polymer film 25-75µm thick (50µm typical) that ‘conforms’ to the circuit board topology. Its purpose is to protect electronic circuits from harsh environments that may contain moisture and or chemical contaminants.
Our new state of the art machine applies a Conformal coating in the most efficient way possible with no pooling or missed areas. See the machine in action in the video below.

Local Australian manufacturing businesses can rejoice Rheinmetall’s list of manufacturers within Australia is to continue growing for the LAND 400 phase 2 project.
With a bulk of the $5b AUD being injected into Queensland ($1840m), Hetech are locked in and ready tackle the electronics manufacturing for the Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle, expected to be delivered by 2020.
The project has also sparked much interest in small businesses to start looking towards the future of defence production, as the ADF will soon be facing decisions for the LAND 907 Phase 2 and Land 8160 Phase 1 projects.
Hetech are more than ready to tackle electronics development, design and manufacturing for current and future defence projects. Our sights are set and targeted on bigger and better things in the future.
With the Australian Federal government announcing it’s $5.2b investment by appointing Rheinmetall as the supplier for the significant LAND 400 (Combat Vehicle) project.
LAND 400 will acquire and support the next generation of Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV) with the firepower, protection and mobility to defeat increasingly lethal and adaptive adversaries well into the future. At its foundation, the program will deliver replacements for the Australian Light Armoured Vehicle (ASLAV) and M113 Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) fleets. The program will also provide specialist Manoeuvre Support Vehicles (MSV) to properly enable Army’s combat brigades to undertake joint land combat.
HETECH is well positioned to take on the integral role of manufacturing electronics for this major project. This is in addition to three other major defence projects that HETECH is currently involved in.
Electronex 2016 is behind us and a great time was had by all that attended. Below are some pics from the show, including a few from our first networking dinner promoting ‘innovation and collaboration’ within the electronics design and manufacturing industry. The dinner was held in collaboration with our design partners Amatek Design and was complemented by our two guest speakers Cathy Foley, Deputy and Science Director of CSIRO Manufacturing and Medhat Wassef, President of AIDN NSW (Australian Industry and Defence Network).
Squeaky clean PCB’s, here we come!
Hetech recently received the ultimate in PCB cleaning, the KOLB PSB600. This little beauty is a high-volume batch cleaner for assembled PCB’s, helping to maximise the service life of printed circuit assemblies (PCA’s).
KOLB is German engineering at its finest, with the stencil and board cleaners used in conjunction with specialised cleaning detergents, our customers will be getting PCA’s of industry best practice standard. Our production team were super excited at the arrival of the cleaning system and couldn’t wait to put it to work.

HOW does the falling Aussie dollar affect your business?
The decline of the Australian dollar in the past few years has significantly increased the cost of imported goods in Australia, forcing companies to pass that increase onto their customers by increasing the price of their goods.
To counteract this increase and to keep costs down Hetech is currently streamlining company processes by implementing LEAN, and passing those savings on to our customers.
What is LEAN?
Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources. In 2016 Hetech staff will be able to identify ideas that will lead to sustainable improvements, as well as providing a valuable creation process to customers that has zero waste.
