PROMATION introduces new monthly newsletter
May 02, 2005
PROMATION Inc. announces a new newsletter resource available to the industry.
Produced monthly and e-mailed to readers' inboxes, PROMATION's newsletter is designed to deliver company news and products, as well as industry news.
The first issue, released this month, provides readers with updated product information on the following company products:
-- Multi-Functional Magazine Handler, which offers total flexibility for in-line production. The station comes standard with a single, 50 slot removable magazine that may be used as a line loader, line unloader, vertical rack buffer (LIFO or FIFO) or pass-through station. An optional rear side buffer allows the station to be expanded to hold up to five magazines.
-- PRO 8b Selective Laser Solder System, which is a state-of-the-art selective laser soldering work cell that provides a cost-effective means to solder both time lead and lead-free alloys. Startup costs are minimal ($35 vs. $20,000-$35,000 for initial solder bath) and ongoing facility usage is much less (no overnight heating and no waste disposal). Systems are available for through-hole and SMT soldering.
-- ELC-700 Enhanced In-line Label Placement Work Cell, which is an in-line conveyor, label feed system with an X/Y/Z gantry to easily pick-and-place labels into PCBs and other palletized products. Label sizes can range from 7 x 7 mm up to 50 x 50 mm. Repeatability is rated at Â±0.25 mm at average processing speeds of 2 to 5 seconds (depending upon the label).
The newsletter also includes key company news, such as the following:
-- PROMATION Completes DYNALAB Integration. In February 2005, DYNALAB Inc. selected PROMATION to provide a variety of handling solutions, workbenches and magazine carriers for its new 18,000 sq ft manufacturing facility. The site required various solutions that included many standard SMT interfaces, as well as many custom applications. PROMATION's installation teams recently completed the integration with numerous other OEMs in attendance.
As an additional feature of the newsletter, President and CEO Gary Goldberg provides readers with his thoughts on industry news and how it relates to PROMATION.
