Europlacer Becomes Distributor for Evest Corporation

Apr 08, 2009

DORSET, UNITED KINGDOM - April 2009 - Blakell Europlacer Ltd., a designer and manufacturer of comprehensive SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry, announces that it is now a distributor for Evest Corp., a leading integration solutions provider in the microelectronics industry.

Evest Corp. provides a full range of integration services and products within the microelectronics industry. The company's core engineering capabilities include mechanical design, software engineering, vision technology, electric controlling, and related system integration. Evest specializes in analyzing the emerging production processes among a variety of segments, tailoring solutions to addressing customers' requirements, and consulting customers in improving their plant operation efficiency

Under the new relationship, Europlacer will distribute Evest's EM-760L and EM-560M SMD placers. These affordable multifunctional placers feature 120 feeder positions, as well as six independent servo controlled heads, and dual servo theta on X/Y gantry.

�Europlacer machines offer unrivalled flexibility and allow the user to change from job to job extremely quickly and efficiently. However, there are some manufacturers for whom the initial investment is more of a critical factor than the speed of changeover where, for instance, longer batches are being produced. Evest is a Taiwanese-based manufacturer who offers two basic systems. The EM-560 is a small PCB machine, while the EM-760L offers a larger PCB capability. We evaluated several low-cost SMT placement machines in the market, and felt that the quality of the EVEST and the work ethic of the organization fit with our distribution philosophy,� said Andy Jones, UK General Sales Manager at Blakell Europlacer.
