Europlacer Reports Continued Growth in the New England Market

Dec 07, 2012

 Europlacer, a manufacturer of market-leading flexible SMT placement machines, announces that it recently installed an iineo-II in Nashua, NH-based Colonial Electronic Manufacturers, Inc. (CEM).

CEM is a full-service electronics manufacturing services (EMS) company specializing in PCB assembly, RF assembly/testing and rework/ECO services. After an extensive evaluation process, the company chose the unique iineo-II over numerous competitors. CEM quickly augmented their assembly capacity with this best-in-class, flexible placement platform.  iineo-II provides superior high-mix productivity with feature sets that allow EMS firms to outperform their competitors and gain significant advantages in this competitive market.

iineo-II’s high feeder count (264 - 8 mm), extremely quick load feeders, NPI/changeover and management tools make this comprehensive system ideal for CEM. Additionally, its simple, yet, powerful graphical software, five-year warranty and Europlacer’s proven dedication to overall customer satisfaction combine to provide unparalleled user benefits and value realization. The system’s large component range (01005 to 4" long connector/odd form) on each spindle of either rotary turret, enables optimal flexibility with respectable real placement speeds of 24k+ cph.  

Both Colonial Electronic Manufacturer’s and Europlacer share a long-term commitment to the New England marketplace, and continue to grow with singular focus on innovation and genuine customer service.

Europlacer has been developing machines for SMT 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 pick-and-place machines today. Europlacer’s policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest pick-and-place equipment. Europlacer designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of highly flexible SMT pick-and-place systems for the global electronics industry.
