Custom equipment provider Invotec opens Invotec GmbH, a facility in Villingen-Schwenningen serving medical device manufacturers across Europe. 

Invotec was started in Dayton, Ohio and has been helping medical device manufactures around the globe solve complex assembly, test, and inspection challenges for over 25 years. After joining the HAHN Group in 2017, Invotec is expanding its international presence with a new location in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany.

“Southern Germany is a long-standing hub for medical technology as well as automation across Europe,” says Armin Doser, CEO of Invotec GmbH. “With our experience in medical device manufacturing, we want to show our commitment to growing and serving this region as well as our existing international customers.”

Invotec’s new facility is 730 m2 (7858 ft2) and will provide a range of solutions from semi-automated stations to full production lines. “In the US, we are known for helping medical device manufacturers determine the right level of automation to improve production while maintaining quality. This is the experience I am most looking forward to bringing our customers internationally,” says John Hanna, CEO of Invotec.

As part of the HAHN Group, Invotec GmbH is supported by a network of companies specializing in automation and robotics. Together, the group has 20 subsidiaries across 12 countries. Invotec GmbH focuses on applications in the medical device industry and provides customers complete equipment solutions from engineering and design to production, installation, and service. Located close to sister companies such as Waldorf Technik, the synergy of the HAHN Group and the opening of Invotec GmbH will give medtech companies access to a global network of automation best practices and support.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
