ZIEHL, a manufacturer of electronic devices for modern, reliable measurement and control technology based in Schwäbisch Hall, has invested in four Essemtec Puma pick-and-place systems for its SMT production facility.
The machines were delivered at the beginning of 2021. The purpose of this investment was to replace two older Cobra machines. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, ZIEHL's business is performing well. ZIEHL's investment was motivated by its need for increased production capacity and more feeder places to be able to manufacture new, more complex products.
The two Puma lines each offer 320 8-mm feeder places plus trays and each achieve an optimum pick-and-place output of 36,000 components per hour. Both lines and external programming stations are networked and connected to the ZIEHL ERP system.
Dennis Ziehl, ZIEHL's managing director, remarks: "With this one-off investment, we are ensuring that we can continue to grow and process the latest technologies in the electronics manufacturing sector. Our ties with Essemtec go back a number of years. We're very satisfied with Essemtec's products and customer service. The Puma's high-flexibility concept is ideal for our small to medium-sized production lots."
