AccuSpec Doubles Production with Panasonic High-Mix SMT Solutions

ROLLING MEADOWS, IL (October 30, 2012) – AccuSpec Electronics, a full-service EMS provider in Erie, Pennsylvania, has doubled sales and placements while maintaining high quality and on-time delivery since installing electronics assembly manufacturing solutions from Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America.

“After a comprehensive study of suppliers, AccuSpec Electronics chose Panasonic as a partner due to their scalable, flexible, & efficient solutions,” said Mike Sementelli, Vice President – Sales & Marketing, AccuSpec Electronics. “Panasonic offered the best balance between versatility, speed, and accuracy,” added Ray Lawrence, Sr. Process Engineer. “With our high-mix environment, offline set-up of jobs and feeders are required. Panasonic has removable feeder carts, Material Verification software tools for offline setups, and offline support fixture changes – all this allows us to keep one step ahead of production to keep the lines running smoothly.”

“With the Panasonic equipment we can adjust and be flexible to customer demand and a changing production environment. High-speed, small placements and flexible, large-part capability in one machine maximize our ability with minimal overhead,” said Jennifer Harkness, AccuSpec Engineering Manager.

Last year AccuSpec acquired its fourth Panasonic modular placement machine as well as the Material Verification and Production Analysis modules of the PanaCIM® Enterprise Edition MES system.

Mr. Lawrence also commented on how quickly and easily the new Panasonic equipment was installed. “Along with the support of Panasonic, we were able to maintain factory performance during the install without disruption,” he said.

As a manufacturer, Panasonic understands the importance of keeping production running and has developed proven systems to ease new equipment and software integration. Mark Regard, Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America Sales Group Manager stated, “Panasonic is dedicated to the success of our customers. Our support doesn’t stop with our integration assistance. We also follow that up with continued support throughout the life of our customers’ equipment.”

“Having a longstanding partnership, like the one between AccuSpec and Panasonic, also means we can help integrate our customers’ process from machine-level to enterprise-level and provide innovative processes that evolve with industry requirements through our company’s own electronics assembly manufacturing know-how,” added Brent Fischthal, Panasonic Regional Sales Manager.
