Great success for the SIPLACE team at Nepcon Shanghai 2013: SIPLACE X4i S wins three awards

The SIPLACE Team was able to secure the prestigious EM Innovation Award China, the SMT China Vision Award and the SMT China Prime Product Award for the fifth time running.

The SIPLACE Team was able to secure the prestigious EM Innovation Award China, the SMT China Vision Award and the SMT China Prime Product Award for the fifth time running.

At this year's Nepcon Shanghai show the SIPLACE team received two highly influential awards for its new high-end SIPLACE X4i S platform: the EM Innovation Award China, the SMT China Vision Award and the SMT China Prime Product Award. For the fifth time running now, SIPLACE was able to win these prestigious awards, which are given out by independent panels. The SIPLACE X4i S impressed the panellists especially with its high performance rating, flexible features and great usability. With the new generation of the SIPLACE X platform, ASM Assembly Systems is aiming to expand its market share in sophisticated high-speed applications.

The new SIPLACE X4i S flagship delivers a top benchmark speed rating of 120,000 cph (components per hour) in a footprint of only 1.9 x 2.6 meters. The new three-gantry and four-gantry models of the high-end platform impress with significantly improved numbers for investment-critical ratios like floorspace/performance and price/performance. Slots for up to 160 8-mm feeders, conveyors for boards up to 650 mm wide, barcode readers, SIPLACE Smart Pin Support, interchangeable gantries and new tray feeders expand the flexibility and usability of the new platform for demanding high-speed applications in electronics production.

The awards for the SIPLACE team confirm the innovative strength and quality of SIPLACE placement machines. Zhu Jie, Product Marketing Manager SIPLACE China, is very happy about these accomplishments: “We are very proud of these awards. For the SIPLACE team all over the world they are a motivation to keep developing technologically leading solutions for our customers. Besides speed and precision, today's electronics manufacturers require more flexible platforms in order to be able to use their lines efficiently even when frequent model version changes are called for. With the new generation of our SIPLACE X-Series high-end platform we can satisfy these requirements perfectly.

Established in 2006, the EM Asia Innovation Awards program strives to recognize and celebrate excellence in the Asian electronics industry, inspire companies to achieve the highest standards and push the industry forward. An independent panel of industry experts judges entrants on the criteria of innovation, achievement and setting challenging objectives. The panel includes representatives from businesses, trade associations and academia.

To ensure professionalism, independence, and fairness, a distinguished panel of independent judges selects the winners of the SMT China Vision Awards. One panel includes recognized industry experts and professors in the field of electronics manufacturing technology, while a second panel of judges is selected from SMT China readers who work in the fields of communications, industrial electronics, computing and peripherals, consumer electronics, automotive electronics, EMS and OEMs in China. The judging criteria emphasize the creativeness and advanced nature of the entries and their contributions to helping the downstream industry segments reduce costs, improve quality, increase efficiency, enhance reliability, ensure safety and protect the environment.

The SIPLACE Team was able to secure the prestigious EM Innovation Award China, the SMT China Vision Award and the SMT China Prime Product Award for the fifth time running.
