Somerset-based contract electronics manufacturer Trizo Ltd has added a new placement platform to its surface mount assembly line. Choosing the iineo+ from Europlacer adds additional capacity and extra technology capability to the company’s growing customer offer.
The AS9100-accredited business provides a broad scope of electronics manufacturing services from NPI to volume production, specialising in short lead times for high-complexity electronic and electro-mechanical assemblies. The addition of the twin-turret iineo+ machine complements the range of equipment on the company’s production floor to enable faster and more accurate component placement, address a wider range of component profiles from 01005 to 50mm2, and deliver greater manufacturing flexibility.
In addition, the iineo+ platform leads the industry with its on-machine inventory capacity, comprising 264 x 8mm reels and integral matrix trays. This virtually eliminates changeover time by allowing a vast range of components to reside on the machine for immediate deployment as new board types arrive.
“This advanced technology investment will keep us competitive by shortening manufacturing lead times to assemble boards, delivering cost savings and maintaining our high-quality standards,” says Mike Nicholson, Managing Director at Trizo. “With customers in demanding high-reliability sectors such as aerospace, automotive, medical and nuclear, quality in our manufacturing service is essential,” he explains.
