He is looking forward to meeting our current customers, and prospective clients at the show, and, together with our team of experts, will demonstrate the capabilities of the varied products in our portfolio.”

Highlights on the Altus stand will include equipment from Koh Young, including the Zenith Alpha HS+ 3D AOI inspection platform. Combining the best hardware and 3D algorithm technologies, and teamed with artificial intelligence, it delivers the first class accuracy for any inspection application.

Essemtec Fox smart sized modular pick-and-place machine will also be displayed which is dedicated to high-mix production. Another highlight will be Asscon Vapour Phase system. As the demand to produce complex PCBA technology grows, this market-leading flexible system includes adjustable temperature gradients to assure each product has the optimal, reproducible temperature profile.

With traceability and process control of the upmost importance in electronics production, Altus will also demonstrate Promation USA Robotic Soldering platform. Visitors can see first-hand how these systems can support their high-tech, high value production requirements. Building on the foundation of proven robotic soldering performance and know-how, and with the addition of an impressive suite of software functionality, this robotic soldering process fits seamlessly within Industry 4.0 ideals.
