One year ago, the leading manufacturer of surface mount technology (SMT) production equipment Essemtec AG has entered the Polish market directly, by founding Essemtec Poland. The permanent presence in Poland guarantees a better service and support structure for Polish customers.
Following the strategy of other European markets, Essemtec founded a subsidiary in Warsaw, Poland at the beginning of 2011. Essemtec’s goal is to improve the direct customer relationship and to increase sales and marketing activities in Eastern Europe. Marketing and Sales Manager Miroslaw Borkowski knows Essemtec products very well - he has been working for Essemtec’s ex-distributor in Poland for many years.
Essemtec’s Swiss-quality, high-precision product portfolio is well positioned to serve the semiconductor and surface mount assembly markets in Poland. Essemtec Poland delivers complete turnkey solutions from one source with printers, dispensers, assembly machines and reflow ovens. The product range also includes storage systems, handling equipment and software including process know how from one source, providing significant time and cost benefits to customers.
“To be directly active in the market does not just mean selling directly,” Mirek Borkowski states. “It also means having direct service.” For this reason Essemtec Poland has established its own service structure here in Poland that offers a local service and support in all Polish regions. The advantages are obvious, Essemtec Poland can offer a significantly cost reduced machine servicing, a quick delivery of spare parts to the customer as well as a decrease of machine downtime.
As per January 1, 2012, the new company address is Essemtec Poland, Kubickiego 9/6, 02-954 Warszawa, Poland, Tel. +48 (0)661 922 962, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Essemtec Poland will exhibit the new inline pick-and-place machine Pantera-XVC at the upcoming AUTOMATICON exhibition. Until recently, this machine was available only as standalone model. Today, customers can chose their inline configuration from single, dual or three stage conveyor systems with SMEMA interface. This new option increases the possibilities and capabilities of SMT production. Pantera-XV pick-and-place systems are becoming more flexible, offering the possibilities of large as well as small production runs.
The Pantera-XVC is designed for prototype and mid-size series manufacturing. The machine offers an ideal combination of speed, accuracy and wide application range. The Pantera-XVC is capable of placing 4500 components per hour. The machine features optical laser and vision centring, and can place all SMD components from 0201 up to 50x50 mm. PANTERA-XVCs top-down vision system recognizes fiducial marks automatically. It can be used for teaching and controlling after dispensing and placement. The large feeder capacity and the automatic identification of the intelligent feeders minimize changeover time and guarantee quality. All tape feeders are electrically driven and feeding pitch is programmable.
Visit Essemtec Poland in hall 1 booth B28 at the AUTOMATICON exhibition in Warsaw, from March 20-23, 2012 for more information about its product portfolio.
