Elite Electronic Systems Grows with Europlacer
As a result of an increasing demand in capacity and technology from its client base, Elite has decided to further invest in the Europlacer iineo platform. Managing Director David Allen explains, "We have been using Europlacer placement machines since 1997 and have been delighted with their performance and with the support we have received from Blakell Europlacer." With its customers' products becoming more complex and required in higher volumes, the company has needed to look at its overall surface mount placement capacity.
Having been using Europlacer iineo machines for the past couple of years, Elite decided to augment its facility by adding two additional Europlacer iineo-I machines.
"The addition of two new iineo-I machines was seen as the right solution for us so that we could increase our output and add the ability to place a complete range of devices - from 01005 to odd-shape and connectors - that seem to be becoming more prevalent these days," said Allen. "We also will be even more efficient at preparing and introducing new products using the flexibility that the iineo-I brings."
The two extra Europlacer iineo machines will effectively result in four SMT lines with a combined placement capacity of around 120,000 components per hour (cph) and feeder capacity of more than 1500 x 8 mm positions.
Blakell Europlacer's UK General Sales Manager Andy Jones commented, "We are proud to have been working with Elite over the years and are pleased that the company's decision to invest further with the Europlacer platforms vindicates its initial decision back in the late 1990s. Everyone at the company has been a pleasure to deal with and it is great to see the business developing into one of the larger CEM manufacturers in the UK."
The Europlacer iineo-I machine is the flagship of Europlacer's product range and has won several awards as one of the most flexible machines on the market. With a feeder capacity of 264 x 8 mm feeders, placement speeds to approximately 15,000 cph, capability from 01005 through to 50 x 50 mm and for devices as high as 35 mm tall, the Europlacer iineo-I has been accepted widely within the UK and global market for both CEM and OEM manufacturers.
"We experienced a fantastic 2012, with a large number of iineo sales both to the UK and the international market. The UK market, in particular, has been excellent and this order from Elite wraps up a superb period for us. I look forward to 2013 as there are still a number of prospects looking at investing in iineo. Thank you to all of our customers and to Elite for making a great start to the year," concluded Jones.
