Electronics design and manufacturing
At Hetech, we were delighted to welcome Park Ridge State High School electronics students to our facility last week to teach them about the local electronics manufacturing industry, and guide them through the opportunities available.
The students were introduced to our manufacturing processes, which are unparalleled in Australia and across the world, during a tour of our large assembly and production floor, onsite warehouse and storage, offices and meeting facilities.
Our highly skilled staff were on hand to answer questions about the manufacture of integrated electronic systems that support a range of industries, including mining, defence, transport, water management and utilities.
As part of the educational visit, the students were also shown how our automated conformal coating machine works by applying a protective polymer film or chemical coating 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.
It was an absolute pleasure to spend the afternoon with the students and show them around our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
It’s exciting to see more and more electronics students emerging in schools, all enthusiastic, and keen to learn about the exciting world of technology and the opportunities available to them.
However, it’s up to businesses, schools and governments to provide as much assistance and exposure as possible for students, to pursue their career in the industry. We urge anyone who is involved in the electronics or STEM industries to reach out to your local government or schools, even if it is to simply offer an afternoon to show some students around your workplace.
As your electronics, design and manufacturing partner, Hetech is committed to supporting young people and the opportunities available to them in STEM fields, which increase young people’s choices and chances through science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
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).
OF late, the Hetech team have been often questioned… what does the H.E. stand for in HETech? We’ve heard a number of possible guesses about what it could be, so we thought what better time than our 25th year in business than to decrypt these letters and pay homage to our founders Hegge and Edington.

In March we welcomed some very special visitors to Hetech HQ! Twenty-six engineering students from Singapore were our guests for the morning as we walked them through facility and processes.
ONCE a month Hetech staff come together to celebrate staff birthdays, with coffee and cake, lots of laughter and singing. Today however, was a little different. Today we celebrated an important milestone in one of our staff members’ career. Continue…
