optical control GmbH & Co. KG, a world leader in automated component counting technology, today announced that it has signed on with The Murray Percival Company to represent its technology throughout the Midwest.
Vice President Mark Percival Sr. commented: “We are pleased to be representing the optical-control line of component counting systems. The Murray Percival Co. prides itself with bringing equipment and materials that make assembling PCBs profitable for our customers. optical control is yet another example of a solution that will make our customers job quicker and more effective. It will allow them to do a job that typically takes hours in just minutes. Component inventory is a large investment for our customers so it is important to know exactly what they have in stock. Not having the correct components on hand can create costly line-down situations and extended delivery time.”
Exact inventory knowledge and permanent inventory is mandatory to increase productivity, for on-time delivery and an immediate reaction in case of bottlenecks. The entire SMT line is monitored, so monitoring and controlling inventory to run the lines is equally critical for the production process. The OC-SCAN®CCX.3 SMD counting machine simplifies electronic manufacturing work and gives exact, and precise control of inventory, and as a result, helps keeps lines running. The Murray Percival Company will represent this groundbreaking technology, effective immediately.
