Mr. Wong Kin Keong (middle), Sales General Manager of SEAS China, receives the SMT China Vison Award during the ceremony held at Nepcon Shanghai on April 20th.
The SIPLACE SX is the world’s first placement machine that allows the user to add or remove gantries in only a few minutes. The award panels found this concept of gantry modularity, which makes it possible to scale placement performance and feeder capacity independently of each other, particularly impressive.
The innovative technology of the SIPLACE SX also received plenty of praise from customers:
Mr. Ou Kai, SMT manager at FiberHome Technologies:
"The SIPLACE SX is exactly the right machine for our requirements. It allows us to invest precisely in what we actually need. It meets all our requirements in terms of economic efficiency."
Mr. Fuhao of Foryou General Electronics Co., Ltd:
"Thanks to its modular gantries, the SIPLACE SX is the best solution for short-term order peaks. It also enables us to individually adapt the capacity of our lines by shifting gantries between them, which is an extremely attractive feature for us."
The SIPLACE SX was already a big hit at the last Productronica in Munich, where it was honored with the Global Technology Award of Global SMT & Packaging Magazine. The new awards make the SIPLACE SX the most honored SMT manufacturing solution in the entire industry.
All these recognitions confirm that the global SIPLACE standards for innovation and process expertise pave the road to success – for the SIPLACE team and its customers. They represent highly welcome rewards for the global SIPLACE team as well as incentives for additional innovations, some of which SIPLACE will unveil to the market in the near future.
