Bob Black, Juki Automation Systems President & CEO, commented, “The 2050 & 2060 are real workhorse machines that deliver great value to our customers. I recently visited a customer whose 2060RL just passed 12,000 hours and the machine has had zero downtime in its history. That’s more than six shift years without an interruption for repair! Quality like that is why Juki has grown to the forefront of placement suppliers.”
Juki is a world-leading supplier of SMT assembly systems with more than 21,000 machines delivered. The new Juki FX-3 high speed chip shooter recently swept the awards at APEX 2009, setting new records for price performance.
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 21,000 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.
