FUJI showcases positioning solutions for the factory of the future at ‘Southern Manufacturing & Electronics’ in the UK

FUJI’s machines and services enable the manufacturing of electronics on competitive terms in the UK and Ireland

Kelsterbach, January 23, 2023 – Positioning constantly requires new solutions to increase precision, quality and flexibility in production. Automation continues to gain momentum here. FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION offers placement solutions that meet these requirements. For example, the AIMEX IIIc enables higher productivity and flexible high-mix production through automated processes. This makes it beneficial for companies to have their own circuit board manufacturing. FUJI will demonstrate resulting competitive advantages and other solutions at booth K130 at « Southern Manufacturing & Electronics » from February 7 to 9, 2023, in Farnborough, England.

« Many customers have relocated their production abroad due to low labor and infrastructure costs. We have been noticing a turnaround for some months now. Partly due to constant supply bottlenecks and the resulting shortage of materials « More and more FUJI customers are shifting their focus to their PCB manufacturing, particularly in the UK and Ireland. This is especially true for medical products, which are a major growth area in the global electronics industry, » he explains Martin Rennie, Branch Manager UK & Ireland at FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION GmbH.

FUJI is therefore stepping up its activities in these countries and supporting manufacturing companies, for example, in setting up their own production lines. By supplying the machines and related services, many manufacturing companies no longer need to source from external EMS service providers.

At Southern Manufacturing & Electronics, FUJI will showcase its latest hardware offerings and software features. The annual industrial show is the leading industry event for the UK manufacturing industry and its supply chains. The event therefore provides the ideal platform for FUJI to promote its solutions to audiences in the UK, Ireland and beyond. The AIMEX family is one of the series that the company will be presenting on its stand.

Automation in placement is becoming more and more important
« Today, placement processes, for example for electronic printed circuit boards, are subject to ever-increasing requirements in terms of high-mix production or variable-mix and variable-volume production. This calls for solutions that enable maximum flexibility. Our machine The AIMEX III/IIIc SMD positioning system is designed accordingly versatile and supports the rapid positioning of chip parts and the production of high mix parts,” explains Artur Tobolski, Regional Account Manager UK & Ireland at FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION GmbH.

The AIMEX III/IIIc machine platform allows any type of production and change of type of piece. Very small to very large parts can be handled by one machine. This makes it easy to start new productions or react quickly to errors that occur. Multiple inspection ways prevent the occurrence of defects and ensure high quality. The time and effort required are drastically reduced by benefits such as the reduction in the number of format changeovers. Operation is extremely simple.

« The AIMEX III/IIIc Positioning System meets the requirements of the modern factory through fully automatic changeover, offline maintenance, and material handling automation. The modern factory thrives on automated processes to ensure the high efficiency and competitiveness that are indispensable today, » says Arthur Tobolski.
