Preview for AdoptSMT UK - Southern Manufacturing and Electronics show from the 21st to 23rd March 2017, Farnborough, UK

Feb 03, 2017

Market Leader AdoptSMT will showcase at Southern Manufacturing an array of new innovative products. These products and the service AdoptSMT offers their customers make AdoptSMT’s slogan become true: We keep your production running. AdoptSMT covers the processes of PCB assembly, hand soldering and industrial identification.

Strong growth in the segment of identification and masking

In 2016 AdoptSMT doubled their sales of identification labels and masking labels -for the continuation of this growth and even better support of their customers AdoptSMT has hired more people.

Automated Marking of PCBs without machine investment

Hover-Davis label feeders are available for the most popular pick and place machines on the market. They eliminate the need to invest into a labelling machine or a laser marking machine, the existing pick and place machine can place labels presented by the label feeder like a standard SMT component. The combination of Hover-Davis label feeders and Nortec high temperature labels for auto apply will continue to be the strongest AdoptSMT offering in the field of industrial identification. In addition the 25 years of experience of their new product manager are helping AdoptSMT to consult even better on the different options to print labels. Customers can purchase ready printed labels or get support to set up their own print center. This can include printers, labels, ribbons, label software as well as validation and verification systems like those that are used to print the ready printed labels.

AdoptSMT is also offering complete solutions for the production of name plates / type labels. By selecting the right materials and printing with thermal transfer the needed durability of the label including the print is ensured. AdoptSMT can supply printing systems to be installed at the customer, blank labels or partially printed labels with suiting ribbons and ready printed labels.

Masking for protection at wave solder or conformal coating process

Masking dots and masking labels of different shapes can be presented by a Hover-Davis label feeder and placed automatically just like identification labels. In addition AdoptSMT is also supplying heat resistant Polyimide masking dots and masking tapes for manual masking of edge connectors, terminals or other areas on PCBs which shouldn’t make contact with the hot solder wave. The dots and tapes can be removed after soldering without leaving behind any residues. AdoptSMT is offering the best prices on the market and can supply many sizes from stock.

Placement Aids by Nortec

AdoptSMT is also supplying special Nortec Polyimide labels, which are attached to the top of irregular shaped components so these components can get picked automatically. These placement aids can be removed after soldering without leaving residues on the components. Nortec placement aids are being used in SMT assembly departments, at tape and reel service providers and at manufacturers of sensors.

New - StripFeeder Lightweight

AdoptSMT is showing Count On Tool’s new version in its award-winning line of StripFeeder products – the StripFeeder Lightweight for use in OEM automated tray towers.

Stripfeeders are especially used for assembling samples or small batches. Often only strips of SMT tapes are available which are too short for standard tape feeders. The StripFeeder.mod can present a few different components on the size of a JEDEC tray. The StripFeeder.mini is only half the size of a JEDEC tray and can be used when more different components need to be presented or the pick and place machine doesn’t have room for a JEDEC tray.


AdoptSMT supplies consumables, spare parts and tools for the PCB assembly process, for repair soldering and for industrial identification. For the PCB assembly industry also service and overhauled equipment are offered. AdoptSMT Europe GmbH was founded in 1991 by Erhard Hofmann in Salzburg, Austria, and since then expanded Europe-Wide.

Today they include the HQ in Austria with more than 4000 m²; AdoptSMT Germany GmbH with 2000 m² specialising in Siplace overhaul and service; AdoptSMT Polska Spółka z.o.o. with a small Siplace and feeder service facility; AdoptSMT UK Ltd in Redhill, Surrey; AdoptSMT Romania S.R.L , AdoptSMT Swiss AG and AdoptSMT France Sarl with sales offices. More than 85 people are employed by the seven group companies.
