Apr 27, 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 Elite Electronics Systems has placed an order for the iineo.

Based in the Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, Elite Electronic is an established contract electronics manufacturer (CEM), providing a broad range of full turnkey CEM services.

Assembly capabilities include PCB, conventional and surface mount, wiring harnesses, electromechanical, and complete systems build. These capabilities include turnkey procurement, manufacture, inspection and full test services.

Europlacer's iineo is widely configurable, allowing for 24 different machine possibilities, for the single head machine with linear motor gantry including a rotary turret head with 8 or 12 pickup nozzles, one board positioning mechanism, oversized board options, and feeders in front and rear, or front only.

The iineo platform features many improvements to the Europlacer machine range, such as an extremely high feeder count, largest industry board size and increased maximum component height.

The platform uses Europlacer's unique Integrated IntelligenceTM plus proven core, featuring highly robust and flexible turret head, intelligent feeders, 3DPS, and powerful software tools.

David Allen, Operations Director at Elite Electronics said, �The investment in the iineo will increase Elite's capacity and add to our existing capabilities that we currently offer our customers. We already use the Europlacer platform and it was an obvious choice to use a proven product from an established company like Europlacer.�
