Horizon Sales, a leading manufacturers’ representative corporation specializing in the sales and marketing of premier electronics assembly equipment, is pleased to announce that its sales for Q1 have increased by 300 percent with respect to Q4 2014. Horizon Sales attributes its success with FSInspection’s visual inspection series to the ‘buy-one-get-one’ sales incentive in Q1.

Horizon Sales introduced the new FSInspection visual inspection series at the end of 2014 and has already sold more than 20 units. Dave Trail, President of Horizon Sales, commented, “When we demo the high-magnification, visual inspection systems, customers love the image quality and clarity. Many customers have placed an initial order with the expectation of multiple orders to follow.”

Customers are finding uses for the inspection stations in receiving inspection, in-process inspection and rework and test verification. To date, most applications have been for electronics PCB use but the unit is finding its way into plastic molding and small metal stamping inspection and measurement.

The introductory ‘buy a system get a free handheld PK Mag’ offer* was so successful that it has been extended through May while quantities last. Additionally, FSInspection provides software that offers image capture, storage and measurement at no charge. For more information, contact your local Horizon Sales representative or visit www.horizonsales.com.

*Every customer that places an order for two units of either an X-Mag™ Machine Vision Station, HDMag® High-Magnification Visual Inspection Station (or any combination of the two) will receive a PKMag® 50 Portable Visual Inspection Device for free. Every order in multiples of two will be entitled to a free PK 50 (buy two get one, buy four get two, etc.). The free offer does not apply to any in-house evaluation orders.
