Europlacer Partners with Hexi Electronic Equipment Co., Ltd. to Become a Distributor

Apr 13, 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 has signed an agreement to distribute Hexi Electronic Equipment Co. Ltd.'s reflow systems.

Founded in 1999, with an area of 15,000 sq m, Hexi has more than 260 employees, comprised of 80 percent engineers and technicians. In cooperation with TSC Company, it has been developing such products as lead-free solder systems, SMT accessorial equipment, and electronics products.

Hexi's product line ranges from reflow soldering and wave soldering to printing machines, assistant equipment and AOI systems. The machines are easy to setup, and using the onboard profiling system profiles can be easily prepared for either lead or lead-free manufacture.

Hexi convection ovens are well assembled and offer solutions from 5 zone (5 top side, 5 bottom side and a further cooling zone) through to 6,7,8,9 and 10 zone machines. Each system can be configured to accept nitrogen capability and can be supplied with flux reclamation units.

�Being a manufacturer of Europlacer SMT pick-and-place machines and Speedprint stencil printers, it was a logical decision to add a reflow system. Hexi is a well-known organization in the Far East, supplying equipment to customers such as Sony, Foxconn, LG Group and other household names. After extensive evaluations into the design and operation of their reflow systems, Blakell Europlacer decided that we would represent the machines in the UK market,� said Andy Jones, UK General Sales Manager at Blakell Europlacer.
