At this year’s Nepcon Shanghai 2012 trade show the SIPLACE DX received three highly influential awards for the SIPLACE DX platform: the EM Innovation Award China, the SMT China Vision Award and the SMT China Vision Grand Award. For the fourth time running, SIPLACE was able to win these prestigious awards. Among them, the SMT China Vision Grand Award for highly innovative products is an especially great honour. All three prizes, which are given out by indepen-dent award panels, underline the SIPLACE DX grand success in the Asian market. The SIPLACE DX impressed the panellists especially with its high performance rate and great usability. Tailored especially to the needs of Asian electronics producers, it unites German Engineering and Asian efficiency. The machine’s high flexibility paired with outstanding floorspace performance and intelligent user software did not only win the judges, many visitors to the SIPLACE booth in Shanghai awarded top grades to the new machines as well.
The many international awards for the SIPLACE Team confirm the innovative strength and quality of SIPLACE placement machines.
