Representatives from Europlacer will display some of the company’s top printing and inspection lines, including:
Speedprint’s SP210AVi Stencil Printer ? Speedprint’s SP201AVi maintains the reputation of the smallest fully automatic inline printer in the market with the highest level of capability and quality. Additionally, it now includes internal storage for squeegees and consumables. Designed for medium and high throughput, high-mix applications, SP201AVi delivers outstanding performance and value.
ASC International’s Solder Paste Inspection machine ? ASC International helps manufacturers improve the quality of the PCB manufacturing process by providing high-precision optically-based measurement equipment for post-print inspection. ASC’s range of machines includes manually operated laser based units to Gerber driven high resolution white light systems with automatic X-Y tables.
SAKI’s Automatic Optical Inspection Machine ? SAKI is a world leader providing high yield-enhancing PCB inspection products to the global electronics industry. SAKI’s AOI systems provide the highest coverage, speed, and flexibility. SAKI’s innovative approach to inspection, using line scan cameras, leads to one of the fastest AOI systems on the market, with the ability to inspect an entire PCB for defects, such as lifted leads, poor solder joints and incorrect device marking within a cycle time of less than 30 seconds.
SAKI also supplies full inline solder paste machines (SPIder) and fully automatic inline XRAY machines.
Tagarno Magnus High-Definition Inspection System ? The Tagarno Magnus essentially is a camera-based tool that displays a crystal clear image of the object on a high-definition display. A capture card allows exactly what is being viewed to be saved to a PC. This image then can be appended with information to help the user see critical areas of inspection.
Red-E-Set Center Support ? Production Solutions’ new Center Support provides next-generation automatic board support, ideal for stencil printer and pick-and-place users who would like to have center board support installed in their machines. Additionally, the Center Support system is easy to install and remove in the machine, and strips can be added as needed. The system supports a range of board widths, as well as a range of support lengths up to 24".
“Generally, we have found over the years that the expenditure involved in trade exhibitions has not really borne fruit. However, this show has been growing in attendance, and offers a relatively low-cost option to show some of our distribution products,” said Andy Jones, Blakell Europlacer’s General Sales Manager for the UK.

Europlacer has been developing machines for electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s. After acquisition by Blakell Europlacer in 1991, the company moved away from split-axis to the inherently more capable X-Y architecture that underpins the company’s machines today. Europlacer’s policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest equipment. Europlacer designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of highly flexible SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry.
