Local manufacturers buy more pick-and-place machines
27 August 2003, Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Electronics contract manufacturer Microtronix, and Centurion Systems, South Africa’s premier producer of gate automation and access control systems, both recently placed orders for Yamaha YV 100X pick-&-place machines with Hawker Richardson South Africa.

Microtronix has ordered two more Yamaha YV 100X machines that are to be delivered in September, bringing the total number of Yamahas in the Microtronix factory to six.

Microtronix is one of South Africa's top SMT assembly companies doing contract work for customers locally and as far afield as Japan. Customer service, commitment to quality and choice of assembly machines, are amongst the reasons given for Microtronix' exceptional growth.
