We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Automated assembly", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.
Start with the news release Wiring analyser allows rapid testing from Clare Instruments, which we summarised at the time by saying "The Horizon II is capable of 128-point testing, with the possibility of expanding up to 1024 points, with the capability of switching 1A and hipot testing up to 1500V DC and/or 1067V AC". A few weeks before, we featured the news release Alliance targets next-generation transceivers from Molex UK: "Platforms will provide the telecomms and datacomms markets with a highly reliable and low cost transceiver product line for use in both indoor and outdoor conditions".
In September 2007, we covered the news from JAE Europe concerning its MM60 PCI Express Mini Card connector system - take a look at Connector system retains Mini Card which says: "To hold the entire module securely, the connector and latch are positioned at either end of the card and operate together to enable module ejection".
Take a look also at the news release from Tyco Electronics UK, Resistors are made for automated assembly, as well as Hermetic sealing becomes universal package option from StratEdge, and Low profile inductors for line-filtering purposes from Murata Power Solutions.
