CAMtek Acquires Fourth Assembly Line

Reading time ( words)

CAMtek Inc. recently expanded its manufacturing capabilities by adding Hanwha Precision Equipment Model SM 482 Plus, which will be the contract manufacturing company’s fourth surface mount assembly line.

The SMT line is made up of two Model SM482 Plus chip placement machines and includes board loaders and unloaders, stencil printer with inspection and measurement capabilities, a leading-edge technology platform for precision placement, and a 24-zone reflow oven system to support high-reliability electronics. This is one of the most advanced SMT systems available on the market today.

"We made the decision to go with the Hanwha Precision Equipment because we felt it was the best value on the market today, and we have had a long and productive relationship with this company going back to the very beginning of our company," said Christine Davis, president and CEO of Camtek. "But, most importantly, it was the one that best suited our growing demands for SMT business. We experienced solid growth in 2017 and are projecting significant growth in the next 24 months so it was appropriate for us to purchase and install this high-volume line now in anticipation of our growth objectives moving forward."
