Essemtec AG Opens Essemtec Benelux

Apr 21, 2009

Essemtec Switzerland has announced that as of April 2009, its new subsidiary Essemtec Benelux will be responsible for all activities of the Swiss SMT equipment supplier regarding Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg. The first official presentation will be at the Electronics & Automation exhibition in Utrecht (27th � 29th of May 2009).

Tom Van Tongelen, former sales manger at Contax Benelux, is responsible for Essemtec Benelux. The office is located in Herselt, Belgium and is a local service and support organisation that is capable of fully supporting customer requirements. Tom Van Tongelen is a strong partner who knows that the Benelux market could be won. �We are pleased that Tom Van Tongelen is our new step in the market. For us, Benelux is one of the major markets in Europe, with a high potential of our target group of prototyping to mid-size customers,� explains Peter M�ller, Area Sales Manger for Benelux.

Essemtec Benelux offers and supports the complete product range for entry-level machines for SMD manufacturing. Directly from manufacturer to end-user, the equipment covers prototyping to mid-volume production. Their engineers have long years experience in SMT technology and can offer both machine and process training.

Essemtec Benelux will be officially presented for the first time at the Electronics & Automation exhibition at Utrecht 27th � 29th of May 2009 (booth B051). Beside the official presentation, Essemtec Benelux will show a complete turnkey line, including the semiautomatic printer SP150, the fully automatic pick-and-place system FLX2011 and the reflow oven RO300FC. For prototyping, the manual pick-and-place system EXPERT will be shown.

The SP150 is an affordable fine-pitch printer available with vision alignment. Setup and changeover are quick tasks when using this printer. Therefore, this machine is perfect for the production of small to mid-size batches. It controls all key print parameters. It prints reproducibly and precisely independent of the operator.

The SP150 ensures best prerequisites for fine-pitch printing: the vision system and the integrated stencil cleaning guarantee the perfect alignment and proper print conditions. Due to its space saving design with a front drawer, the SP150 is well suited for small- and medium-size enterprises.

The FLX2011 pick-and-place machine is state-of-the-art. It offers an extraordinary application range that is ideal for high-mix production. It features easy programming and set-up, an intelligent feeder and inventory concept, and enables changeover with no downtime. The machine provides leading production technology, based on the experience of more than 1,000 installations worldwide.

The feeders of the FLX-system are automatically recognized by the machine to eliminate programming time. A bar code-based set-up procedure avoids wrong loaded parts and ensures the highest possible quality level. Besides this, the intelligent, lightweight and ultra-compact feeders can safely be exchanged while the machine is in production. The universal magnetic PCB holder enables quick changeover. No tooling is required for format changes. The bottom clearance is very large and able to produce double-sided PCBs or install customer-specific substrate holders. These features make the FLX2011 one of the most flexible machines 0n the market.

The RO300FC exclusively heats with hot air convection and can be used for different tasks in SMT assembly, especially for reflow soldering of lead-free solder pastes or the curing of adhesives. It features easy operation, perfect reflow results and a robust construction. It is well suited for continuous production, small batch manufacturing and prototyping.

The EXPERT placement system is designed for rapid prototyping and small batch manufacturing. The integrated dispensing system and hot air soldering tool make this machine a complete production center in one single unit. More than 2,000 systems are in daily use worldwide.
