Hexi Electronics is a well-established Chinese developer and manufacturer of quality, cost effective reflow ovens. Blakell Europlacer has added Hexi�s products to its distribution business after in depth testing and evaluation. The Blakell Europlacer Group will also sell the Hexi products in France through its Europlacer Distribution subsidiary.
The first sale has already been taken with UK CEM Northern Hitech selecting the Hexi oven in a new line together with a Speedprint SP200avi and Europlacer Finesse machine.
Blakell Europlacer is one of the pre-eminent equipment suppliers in the UK and currently distributes Europlacer placement, Speedprint stencil printing, Dage X-ray, Saki AOI and Hexi reflow oven equipment.
Blakell Europlacer Group Managing Director Derek Gaston stated, �We are excited to take onboard this well-established product range and offer our customers an extremely cost effective, quality reflow oven. We have an existing multinational French customer using these machines with very high satisfaction levels, and we look forward to helping our other clients achieve increasingly cost effective capital equipment investment.�
Europlacer has been developing machines for electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s. After acquisition by Blakell Europlacer in 1991, the company moved away from split-axis to the inherently more capable X-Y architecture that underpins the company�s machines today. Europlacer�s policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest equipment. Europlacer designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of highly flexible SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry.
