EMS completes second Panasonic line with installation of additional CM101-D

Thatcham, UK – Electronic Manufacturing Solutions Limited (EMS) announced today the purchase and installation of its second brand new Panasonic CM101-D.

The CM101-D is a very flexible placement machine capable of handling a large range of components down to 01005” and up to BGA, uBGA, QFN, CSP and large odd-form components in excess of 100 x 50mm.

“I am very pleased with the investment in our second CM101-D, the additional capacity it brings along with its inherent reliability which we have seen from our existing CM101, makes this machine an ideal choice and a critical investment in keeping pace with the increasing demand for our assembly services.  This is another significant step in the company’s growth following on from recent major investment earlier in the year ”, said Bernard Chubb, Managing Director of EMS.

The machine is supplied with a 20 slot direct tray feeder as well as a comprehensive range of tape and tube feeders providing a large placement capacity as well as exceptional production turnaround times.
