“I have had the great opportunity to have spent the last nine years working for Europlacer in the Asia region, and relocated to the U.S. last month. I am a very dedicated, hardworking employee, and have worked for the Blakell Europlacer group for more than 31 years,” said Ebborn.
“I’m really excited to be working with Chris. It is immediately apparent that Chris loves helping customers and he always provides a quick, sound response. His technical prowess and depth of product knowledge have enabled him to fit perfectly into this role with immediate impact,” said John Perrotta, Vice President, Europlacer North America.
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.
