Universal's Fuzion Platform Awarded at Productronica

Dec 02, 2013

Delivering all-in-one flexibility, Universal's FuzionXC2-37 allows manufacturers to quote any job in an increasingly uncertain environment. This versatile solution combines high-speed chip to extreme odd-form placements from 01005 passive components up to 150mm connectors with 5kg placement force and parts up to 25mm tall, all on the same platform.

Delivering all-in-one flexibility, Universal's FuzionXC2-37 allows manufacturers to quote any job in an increasingly uncertain environment. This versatile solution combines high-speed chip to extreme odd-form placements from 01005 passive components up to 150mm connectors with 5kg placement force and parts up to 25mm tall, all on the same platform.

Innovative platform architecture and software streamline NPI and changeovers to enable operational excellence and cost-effective productivity.

Universal Instruments' FuzionXC2-37™ Platform was presented the Global SMT & Packaging Global Technology Award at Productronica 2013 as the top machine in the "Placement Equipment - Low/Medium-Volume" category. Winners were selected by an independent, international panel and evaluations for the award entries were based on innovation, speed/throughput improvements, quality, cost benefits, environmental considerations, ease of use/implementation, and maintainability.

This is the second industry accolade recognizing the FuzionXC2-37 Platform this year, having already won Circuits Assembly magazine’s NPI award as the top machine in the “Component Placement – Multi-Function” category at APEX 2013.

With the industry’s highest feeder capacity, FuzionXC2-37 enables manufacturers to minimize setups and simply change programs for product changeovers - a streamlined model that can boost utilization, OEE and overall output by 50%, or eliminate entire production shifts. In addition, FuzionXC2-37 delivers all-in-one flexibility, performing high-speed chip through extreme odd-form placements, while accommodating large boards and a full range of input types.

These advantages are driving the success of Fuzion™ customers in the higher-mix environments that are becoming more prevalent across the global electronics landscape, allowing them to quote any job and maintain a lean and efficient production model.

Receiving such respected awards confirms what our customers are telling us: We’ve taken an innovative approach that is a perfect fit for today’s market and manufacturing environments,” said Universal Instruments Vice President of Marketing, Glenn Farris. “Productronica was a great show for us, with hundreds of prospective European and global customers visiting our booth. It was a pleasure to share perspectives with so many manufacturers who acknowledged the value of Fuzion in helping them to maximize productivity while reducing costs,” he added.
