Leading infrastructure technology provider integrates ultra-flexible platform to address extreme assembly requirements.
Inspur Electronic Information Industry Co., Ltd. is the fastest growing server company in the world and currently holds the number-one market share in China. The company has chosen Universal Instruments’ FuzionOF™ Platform to automate complex components for server board assembly in its new Suzhou, China production facility. FuzionOF enables Inspur to handle extremely large and heavy server substrates while automating large and odd-shaped parts with exceptional yields and the ability to easily ramp production.
Inspur group is China’s leading cloud computing, big data service provider with four listed companies: Inspur Information, Inspur Software, Inspur International and Inspur Huaguang, covering four large industry groups of cloud data center, cloud services & big data, smart city, and smart enterprises. Inspur offers IT products and services that satisfy the information needs of governments and enterprises in more than 100 countries and regions.

FuzionOF is the fastest automation platform, and is ideal for server applications with the ability to handle boards up to 813mm in length and over 10kg in weight. It places a full range of standard SMT and non-traditional components up to 150mm square and up to 33mm tall, with 5kg placement force. FuzionOF also incorporates leading-edge Fuzion® Platform software with auto-teach and precise, repeatable, closed-loop processes that reduce defects, rework and waste.
“We’re very pleased to be opening a new facility and establishing an efficient production model that can be easily scaled as we execute our planned expansion over the next couple years,” stated Inspur’s production manager. “For the server products we’re building, FuzionOF checks all of the boxes. One of our current applications requires the insertion of more than twenty dual-color DIMM modules and forty capacitors, and Universal provided a FuzionOF solution complete with automated DIMM feeding and other specialty tooling. We’re seeing great results in terms of yield and cycle times and look forward to continued success.”
Universal Instruments Vice President of Customer Operations, Brad Bennett said, “This is a great win for Universal and an amazing company to have the opportunity to partner with. Inspur is on a dynamic growth path and we look forward to facilitating and supporting this progression. FuzionOF has been a great fit and productivity booster for several of our other top-tier OEM and EMS server customers and I expect it will be a powerful building block for Inspur as well.”
