For the first time the ASM Americas Roadshow stopped also in Minnesota at the facility of our partners E-tronix, located just outside Minneapolis in St Louis Park, MN. During the five day event, the ASM and E-tronix team hosted ten different customer groups, each for a half day of detailed private demonstrations on the latest DEK and SIPLACE equipment, as well as productivity enhancing software tools.
The roadshow enabled SMT manufacturers from the Minneapolis area to see equipment at a location convenient to them and to be able to ask questions directly to our team of applications experts. “We’ve been successfully running roadshows in the Americas since 2003” said Marketing Manager, Mark Ogden “but this is our first time in the Minneapolis Metro area, and we were very pleased with the attendance and interest from this event.”
Demonstrations were run on the SIPLACE SX Placement Platform, with full Plexiglass covers to allow visitors to get a better view of the inner workings of the machine. The powerful combination of the Multistar head, with its three placement modes and our tightly integrated line and set up verification software were highlighted at the event. Experienced Applications experts were on hand to run our latest DEK NeoHorizon Printer. This platform enabled us to demonstrate and discuss surface mount printing, special applications such as ball placement, inspection on the machine, and various cleaning options.
The team of technology leader ASM Assembly Systems can look back on an extraordinarily successful first ASM Roadshow in Minnesota.
