Europlacer Backs North American SMT Equipment Purchases with 5/2 Warranty

Apr 20, 2011

Europlacer, a designer and manufacturer of comprehensive SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry, recently unveiled an extended five-year parts/two-year labor warranty on all pick-and-place machine orders in North America.

Industry-leading Warranty Program Announced at the 2011 IPC APEX EXPO

The new warranty program applies to every new pick-and-place machine order in North America beginning in April 2011. The warranty extends the industry-typical one-year warranty for an additional four years from the date of installation. The program also includes a full two-year labor coverage associated with onsite warranty visits when necessary.

"We want our customers to know that we stand behind the quality and reliability of our SMT assembly equipment. It says a lot that we are able to offer this level of warranty support on our SMT pick-and-place machines; we’re further protecting our customers’ capital investment," said John Perrotta, VP of Blakell North America, Inc. "Our machines are very reliable and stable, so we're pleased to offer this extended warranty to our partner customers. We're in this market for the long-term, and we remain committed to helping our customers develop and maintain their competitive edge in the North American market. "

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.
