Juki Automation Systems Wins Coveted Industry Award for the FX-3 Chip Shooter

Nov 22, 2007

MORRISVILLE, NC - November 21, 2007 - Juki Corporation, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems, announces it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Pick-and-Place for its innovative FX-3 chip shooter. The award was presented by Global SMT & Packaging Magazine�s Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Trevor Galbraith during a Tuesday, November 13, 2007 ceremony that took place at the Forum Area in Hall A6 during the Productronica Exposition.

The FX-3, rated at 60,000 CPH, will be shown in a line that includes two FX-3 chip shooters and a new KE2080 flexible mounter. The rated speed of the line will be 135,400 CPH and will demonstrate minimum footprint and maximum flexibility by being able to place parts ranging from an 01005 (0402 metric) chip to a 50 x 150 mm connector. The FX-3 will mark the entrance of Juki into ultra-high-speed assembly lines and will introduce Juki�s standards for high quality, reliability and cost of ownership. The modular FX-3 fits seamlessly into Juki�s portfolio of products and adds its powerful optimization software and quick-change feeder banks to set the standard for electronics manufacturing uptime.

Juki President and CEO Bob Black said, �The speed of the FX-3 chip shooter adds a new dimension to our product offerings and gives us the opportunity to introduce Juki into new markets at a very aggressive price point that we feel will be very, very attractive to larger EMS companies that are looking to maximize their resources. Our strengths of high quality, reliability and outstanding service are recognized worldwide and are the leading factors to our success. We feel strongly that if people take the time to try out our machines, they will find that the systems will sell themselves when put to the test.�

The Global Technology Awards program is sponsored by Global SMT & Packaging Magazine, and is an annual celebration of product excellence in semiconductor packaging and electronics assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology in 23 key areas are chosen by a distinguished panel of global industry experts.

Juki Corporation�s experience as the market leader in industrial sewing machines was the stepping-stone for the entry into the printed circuit board assembly market in 1987. Since then, Juki has delivered more than 19,000 automated assembly systems worldwide and is currently shipping an average of 200 assembly machines per month. This extraordinary achievement makes Juki one of the world�s leading providers of automated assembly products and systems. In addition to its core technologies, Juki�s Electronic Assembly and Test Systems Division develops and manufactures advanced electronic systems and computer software for data entry, mail processing and other electronic equipment.

With the purchase of Zevatech�s assets in November 1999, Juki Automation Systems now brings Juki�s reputation for top quality and reliable service also to the North and South American and the European electronics assembly markets. Juki recognizes the challenges of the new century and is prepared to respond to the globalization of electronic manufacturing. With a sophisticated knowledge base, advanced technologies and a high commitment to its customers, Juki is poised for continued growth in the 21st century.
