The SIPLACE Team Receives 2009 Global Technology Award for SIPLACE SX Platform

Nov 17, 2009

The latest generation of SIPLACE placement solutions impressed not only the visitors, but also the trade journalists at this year’s Productronica, the industry’s leading trade show (Munich Trade Fair Centre, Nov. 10-13, 2009). The panel of judges assembled for Global SMT & Packaging Magazine's coveted Global Technology Award selected SIPLACE and honored the new SIPLACE SX placement platform as the winner for 2009 in the category ‘Pick & Place high volume equipment’. The award is presented for the development of the world’s most important technical innovations. The SIPLACE SX with its rail-mounted interchangeable gantries and MultiStar CPP head is the world’s first platform that offers consistent capacity-on-demand capabilities, thus giving electronics manufacturers the flexibility they need to scale their production up or down. It also opens the door to modern, highly flexible build-to-order concepts for the global SMT industry.

“Our team is especially proud of this award. It confirms that the SIPLACE SX is the right answer to the electronics manufacturing industry’s current and future requirements. The SIPLACE SX with its capacity-on-demand concept combines innovations in hardware, software and services and sets a major milestone on the path to high-mix build-to-order production in the electronics industry. The award confirms our strategy to focus our development activities on highly flexible BTO concepts,” said Ray Bruce, Vice President Customer Relationship Management on the global SIPLACE team. “We are one of very few equipment manufacturers who have won the Global Technology Award repeatedly. This is an impressive confirmation of our innovative strengths and our technological leadership in the placement solutions field.”

Interchangeable SX gantries make performance scaling easy. The SIPLACE SX, the SIPLACE MultiStar CPP head and flexible services such as SIPLACE Rent-a-Gantry, all of which are being premiered at this year’s Productronica, deliver unprecedented line scalability and offer electronics manufacturers an unprecedented amount of freedom to organize their production processes in an order-oriented manner. The SIPLACE SX features unique exchangeable gantries, which can be installed or uninstalled by a single person in less than 30 minutes. Thanks to these gantries, users can increase or decrease the placement capacity of their SMT lines and shift performance between lines in accordance with their specific order requirements. Since the SX gantries calibrate themselves and the software recognizes them automatically and adjusts the placement programs accordingly, adapting one's production to short term order fluctuations or introducing new products is now easier and faster than ever before.
