UVAX Concepts´ know-how in design of state of the art electronic circuits, devices and systems, as well as its excellent expertise as an EMS provider, is well known within the international electronic industry. For UVAX, as well as for its customers, maximum flexibility is one of the most important topics. Therefore, UVAX Concepts has decided to invest in a SIPLACE SX platform, which offers an impressive amount of flexibility, from the machine’s Capacity-on-Demand layout to the revolutionary SIPLACE MultiStar placement head. The MultiStar boasts a component range from 01005 to 50mmx40mm, besides extreme versatility, and most important for UVAX products, making sure today’s highest quality standards are met as well.

SIPLACE MultiStar placement head convinces UVAX
In order to answer to the most challenging and diverse customer requests, UVAX focuses heavily on flexibility in its production capacity and demand response. Precision and a large placement range also were two main requirements for the new placement platform. The company wanted to be able to place various different components without any difficulties or delays and, what was even more important, without having to manually change placement heads during production. The SIPLACE SX machine solves this exact challenge with the help of the SIPLACE MultiStar placement head. The SIPLACE MultiStar can switch between three different placement modes – Collect & Place, Pick & Place and a special Mixed Mode – and is able to place components from 01005 to 40x50mm. This makes it just the perfect pick for UVAX Concepts’ complex designs and new innovative projects. Today, the SIPLACE SX’s great amount of flexibility, together with its robustness, already saves valuable production time and customer requests can be fulfilled even faster than before.
Smart Cities - intelligent city planning
With the purchase of the SIPLACE SX, UVAX expects further acceleration of its implementation of the company’s new Smart Cities product line, which is getting momentum and more demand by the day. Since 2007, UVAX has been working with cities, utility companies, municipal governments and streetlight manufacturers, to develop a system, visioning the near term urban evolution in regard to security, electric cars, outdoor lighting, energy efficiency, energy consumption and alternative energies.
