Gen3 Systems Limited, a specialist British manufacturer and distributor, is pleased to announce the company’s 30th anniversary. Since 1985, Gen3 Systems has been providing training and comprehensive in-house services for solderability, SIR, CAF and cleanliness testing.

Gen3 Systems is a specialist British manufacturer of test and measurement equipment used to help predict reliability of electronic circuits and systems in the field. Additionally, the company designs and manufactures dip and spray coating process equipment in both in-line and bench-top formats. Gen3 is a specialist distributor for several leading equipment manufacturers including, ACE, Hirox, Vision Engineering, FineTech, MBTech, Vacunest, MEK, Optilia and the global distributor for Aprotec Instrumentation, Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) systems.

For more than 20 years, Gen3 Systems has worked closely with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). This unique relationship has helped in Gen3’s development of the MUST and AutoSIR test systems as well as helping the company define new measurement techniques and equipment. Through this relationship Gen3 also is engaged in international standards development through BSi, IEC and IPC.

Managing Director Graham Naisbitt commented, “Through the years we have seen the company grow, especially as of late, with the opening of a new European Test Lab with Microtek Labatories Limited late in 2014.  It is difficult to believe that 30 years have gone by so quickly. We, at Gen3 have had our challenges over the years but Gen3 is resilient and committed. We are looking forward to what the next 30 years may bring for the electronics industry and can only thank our customers for their continued support and business throughout the years.”

Gen3 Systems’ combined knowledge and experience is offered to provide training and advice to customers as well as a comprehensive in-house service for solderability, SIR and cleanliness testing. For more information about Gen3 Systems, visit www.gen3systems.com.
