Mar 23, 2007
Sagem Tunisie have purchased multiple pick-and-place machines, including the award winning Genesis GC120Q - the world's fastest chip-shooter - for their high-volume production of broadband products.
"The Genesis GC120Q is fundamental to Sagem Tunisie's new production lines", points out Jean-Philippe Sacriste, Operations Director Sagem Tunisie. "Cost-per-placement and lowest cost of ownership is paramount to our business, and our comparisons showed that Universal Instruments' Genesis Platform was the clear winner in both cost-per-placement and throughput-per-square meter." Sacriste adds. "Coupled with excellent sales and technical support and fast reaction times, Universal's assembly equipment supports our business needs to optimise our productivity."
