Simon Norman, Director of EVS International, explains the benefits for its North American customers: �Bennett Bruntil is a dynamic individual and he has made an enthusiastic start in developing our business further in this region. We are delighted with his appointment and confident that he will continue the excellent service and support EVS customers have come to expect from EVS and from Sono-Tek.�
EVS International is the leading supplier of solder dross recovery solutions, with equipment incorporated in manufacturing facilities around the world, from tier-1 contract electronics manufacturers, to small- to medium-sized operations. Sono-Tek has been a leading equipment supplier in the electronics assembly sector for more than 30 years, pioneering the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Sono-Tek has a policy of continual development of new applications for its unique technology to replace wasteful practices in a world that is growing more environmentally sensitive. EVS recognized this synergy with the Sono-Tek business and developed a partnership that has been mutually beneficial for manufacturers in North America, who can realize substantial cost, process and environmental advantages.
Sono-Tek's Bennett Bruntil said, �I am excited to be working with a company who leads the field in its marketplace, and to be able to bring our customers the level of machine performance it offers, matched by impressive cost savings. The many awards EVS's products have received, including 'Best Product' at the last Productronica event exemplify how innovative and relevant the company is in this market. In these current conditions, it is now more important than ever for companies to reduce their solder consumption if they want to survive in this competitive, global marketplace. By automating the solder dross recovery from their wave soldering process, companies can improve their wave soldering machine process, reduce de-drossing time by up to 80 percent and solder purchases by up to 50 percent. The electronics industry is now switching to the benefits of ISO14001 and gaining or retaining this accreditation is significantly helped by recycling dross at the point of manufacture.�
