SMT screen printing equipment manufacturer Speedprint Technology has landed the top award in the Printing Equipment category in recognition of its inventive S-Track Traceability solution, from industry publication Global SMT. Speedprint President, Mark Brawley, accepted the award at a ceremony held during the recent Productronica exhibition in Munich.
This is the second industry award presented to Speedprint for the S-Track system this year. S-Track adds a barcode label feeder to the screen printer, delivering traceability one stage earlier in the surface mount process – right at the very start of assembly.
“It seems that S-Track resonates with award judges as well as our customers across the industry,” says Mark Brawley. “They recognise the increasing significance of traceability, especially in critical sectors like aerospace, automotive and medical. I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of the Speedprint team behind S-Track.”
