Munich, Germany -- For the second time, Siemens Dematic Electronics Assembly Systems has been honored with the Frost & Sullivan Technology Leadership Award.
The award recognizes outstanding technological achievements within an industry. According to Frost & Sullivan, a leading U.S. market research firm, the Siplace modular manufacturing concept has revolutionized placement technology. Siplace received the award for its technology leadership in SMT placement.
Within the SMT industry there is a heightened demand for machines of medium production speed, which can process the increasing variety of component types and, as modular units that fit together with other units, form a single high-speed manufacturing line. Due to compatibility across the entire platform, the machines and even entire production lines are easily configurable and adaptable to all kinds of production demands. Interchangeable feeders, placement heads and spare parts allow for quick change of production capacities within lines and entire plants.
The Frost & Sullivan Market Engineering Award for Technology Leadership is bestowed upon an enterprise that has excelled through outstanding technological leadership. The recipient of this award is selected by a team of analysts that looks closely at all emerging technologies and examines ongoing research and development projects within an industry segment. Interviews with all the market participants as well as extensive investigations and technology research programs are part of this process. The technologies and research programs are then compared with basic customer demands. Also taken into account are elements such as product introduction feasibility, likelihood of customer acceptance and acceptance rates as well as estimated time to market. After a comparison of competitors, a relative ranking is established.
More than 11,000 Siplace machines are currently installed worldwide. Service and support centers in the U.S., China, South East Asia and Europe offer customers quick response and service. For more information, visit www.siplace.com.
