Microtronix adds new Universal production line
4 September 2013, News

Universal Instruments, represented locally by Zetech, has deepened its penetration into the South African electronics manufacturing market with the recent purchase by Microtronix of two Advantis AC-90T platforms, one Genesis GX-11S platform with a direct tray feeder, and a line manager software module to its production facility in Johannesburg.

According to Universal’s vice president of customer operations, Brad Bennett, “[Microtronix] was looking to boost productivity and was amazed when the new line delivered three times the output of its existing lines, along with over 90% utilisation and first pass yield exceeding 98%.

“Offering high throughput over a large component range at a mid-tier price point, the Advantis AC-90T platform is the ideal solution for CEMs like Microtronix. When you combine the value-driven performance of the Advantis platform with the versatility of our Genesis GX-11S platform, which easily handles odd-form placement at up at 5 kg placement force, Universal proved to be the best choice for this customer,” he added. “Also important to Microtronix was streamlining changeovers and new product introductions with our NPI software and flexible feeder setup, as well as the Genesis platform’s ability to perform pin-in-paste applications.”

“We have been very pleased with the performance of the new Universal line,” enthused Microtronix CEO Michael Goodyer. “In fact, we are moving forward with the purchase of an additional line in the same configuration to add capacity in building LED and LCD TVs, set-top boxes and LED lighting products.”
