California based contract electronics manufacturer Micro Analog Inc. has installed a new SP710 screen printer from Speedprint Technologies, taking the total number of 700 Series machines in the company’s La Verne, CA, facility to six.
Micro Analog Inc. (MAI) offers the full spectrum of CEM services from fast-turn prototyping, high-mix/low-volume solutions to full scale low-mix/high-volume production runs. To cope with frequent product changeovers in high-mix applications, contract manufacturers need agility and total reliability from their production systems, as well as dependable support expertise from equipment vendors. MAI chose to invest in Speedprint to expand capacity based on proven production performance and their outstanding service reputation.
Mark Brawley, President of Speedprint Technologies worldwide, explains that the latest machine joins an existing SP710 machine and four SP700 platforms, making the total of six printers in one production facility, Speedprint’s largest installation in the US. All 700 Series machines feature Dual Roving cameras for accuracy and Speedprint’s industry-leading 5-year warranty.
Brawley also points to his delight that MAI opted for Speedprint platforms based primarily on service experiences and Speedprint machine reliability: “It’s easy to think that all service levels are equal but that would be to undervalue its impact as a business differentiator. Speedprint is very unique and our 5-year parts warranty shows the confidence we have in our quality and our commitment to delivering unequalled value to our customers.”
