Bob Black, President and CEO of Juki Americas, commented “It is a proud day for all of us at Juki. We wish to thank our customers worldwide for the fantastic sales record of the KE2050/2060 model pair. These workhorse machines have the highest MTBF numbers in Juki’s history, and a price/performance ratio second to none in our industry. The market’s embrace of these machines has led to Juki’s dynamic growth over the past five years.”
Juki recently introduced the KE2070/2080 model pair, with a 23% performance increase over the KE2050/2060. These enhanced models have already started dynamic sales growth, indicating good market acceptance and building on the KE2050/2060 record of success.
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.
