Europlacer Connected at APEX 2020

Jan 07, 2020

Europlacer Americas will focus on it CFX Factory 4.0 connectivity at APEX 2020. Live demonstrations on the Europlacer booth #1910 will feature the company’s mobile app dashboard displaying production data streamed live. At the heart of the booth will be the award-winning atom3 ultra-flexible multi-functional assembly system – itself connected via CFX to the dashboard.

“The atom platform range was introduced to the US market at APEX 2018, where it won the NPI award,” explains John Perrotta, President of Europlacer Americas. “Since then, two full years of field operations with customers, supported by great feedback, have proven the credentials of the atom3 machine beyond doubt. Its impressive combination of turret and high-speed Pulsar pipette heads make it the market’s most flexible SMT placement system and the ideal configuration for manufacturers across the US. It’s ready for prime time, so now we are pushing the atom3 mainstream.”

In addition to atom3 center-stage, Europlacer’s APEX 2020 booth will feature the company’s incredibly popular iineo placement platform, a twin-turret xpii+ compact footprint flexible placement machine, and the EP710 precision screen printer with integrated glue and solder paste dispensing capability.
