Reading time ( words)

Intellitronix Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the US Lighting Group, Inc.and a leading manufacturer of automotive electronics, announced it has purchased a state-of-the-art SMT Component Placement System from Europlacer (France). The Europlacer iineo+ Pick-and-Place platform is a fully automated, multi-functional robotics system with high-speed feedthrough of printed circuit boards (PCB) and precision electronics component placement capabilities.

“Procurement of the Europlacer system is a vital part of the company’s strategic plan of continuous growth to escalate production assembly to meet the increased demand for Intellitronix automotive electronics products. We are thrilled with the advanced technology this provides us in one platform. The Pick-and-Place system can process 30,000 electronics components per hour, handle larger circuit boards, boost production output threefold, and improve quality control with built-in electronics components testing resulting in higher electronics accuracy rates. Our pick-and-place assembly process uses a sizeable quantity of varied surface mounted electronics components, so we were also looking for a system with substantially greater precision placement capabilities,” said Paul Spivak, CEO of the US Lighting Group.

“On top of all these benefits, the Europlacer system gives us more flexibility to produce anything that we can design and engineer. The purchase of the Europlacer Pick-and-Place technology will bring additional benefits to the company, its customers, and shareholders. We are sincerely grateful to our shareholders for their continued support by purchasing restricted stock directly from the company giving us the ability to buy the Europlacer system.”
