Transition Automation, Inc. recently received a large order for Advanced Holder and Blade Assemblies compatible with DEK printers from Rotec BV in Belgium. This order – the third in recent months to Rotec – comes as Transition Automation seeks to realign Permalex distribution with a concentration on high-tier partners.

Rotec BV is established as a supplier of advanced Laser Stencils for more than 30 years and also plays a key role in supplying high-performance solder paste and consumable products for SMT users. Nick Driesen, Technical Sales Manager and co-owner of Rotec, commented recently about this order at Productronica, “The customer who received this order reported a 15% improvement in solder paste volume repeatability in the first week after installation. They are happy with the quality.”
