europlacer company presentation

Europlacer has been developing SMT pick and place machines for electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s. After acquisition by Blakell Europlacer in 1991, the company moved away from split-axis to the inherently more capable X-Y architecture that underpins the company’s machines today. Europlacer’s policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest equipment.

Despite a strong installed base in North America and a growing customer base in Asia, Europe still accounts for some 70% of Europlacer sales with the remaining 30% generated primarily in Asia and the USA. The ability to maintain a strong, profitable business on European sales enables the company to ensure strength without dependence on the large and unpredictable volumes of machine purchase in Asia. The expected growth of sales in Asia over the next 3-4 years will therefore enable even stronger profit growth, and the company is now also expanding further into Eastern Europe and India.

Europlacer Integrated Intelligence

Europlacer's Integrated Intelligence™ is defined by the fact that the machines have been designed to be flexible from the outset. All aspects of the machine architecture (axis configuration, feeder inventory, turret head technology, software control, programming system, etc) have been designed to work together with intelligent feeders in a changing environment - this is truly Integrated Intelligence™. As a result, Europlacer machines release usable productivity in day-to-day performance.

Europlacer has a strong installed base in across the globe, with growing presence in North America, Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, India, and many other markets.

Placement Optimisation in a Lean Manufacturing Environment

Feb 20, 2008 | Pierre Chatain, Europlacer Limited, Dorset, UK

Tier 2 and Tier 3 EMS companies face increasing pressure from competition in low-cost manufacturing countries to produce assembled boards at lower cost, with increased complexity and to tighter deadlines.

Even OEMs find it hard to predict what products they will be manufacturing in three to five years time, driving the need to invest in highly flexible production tools that will cater to their needs over the lifetime of the equipment. This paper examines methodologies for optimising the process, improving stock control and providing greater traceability using lean manufacturing techniques....
