Europlacer Is Named as a Distributor for ASC International

Apr 08, 2009

DORSET, UNITED KINGDOM - April 2009 - Blakell Europlacer Ltd., a designer and manufacturer of comprehensive SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry, announces that it is now a distributor for ASC International.

ASC International helps manufacturers improve the quality of the PCB manufacturing process by providing high-precision optically based measurement equipment for post-print inspection. Featured products include VisionMaster � true volumetric and 3-D profiling capabilities and LaserVision � an economically priced, semi-automated solder paste measurement system.

The Europlacer Group also encompasses SMT screen printing machine manufacturer Speedprint and AGR Automation Ltd., a supplier of automation systems primarily for the medical device and personal care industries. All of the Group's businesses focus on developing innovative technology for automation solutions.

�As a manufacturer of SMT placement machines and stencil printers, Blakell Europlacer is well placed in the SMT process, and we have great experience within assembly of PCBs. The printing process is the first part of the entire SMT assembly process and, therefore, it is key to ensuring good results. Like our printers, many can offer 2-D paste inspection but do not monitor the quantity of solder paste on each pad, providing quantitative feedback of the quality of printing. We looked into this field, and found ASC International, a well-known American manufacturer based in Minnesota. This is a relatively new and untapped field in the UK, and we are excited by the possibilities in the market,� said Andy Jones, UK General Sales Manager at Blakell Europlacer.
