Fuzion provides ideal solution for cost, performance, flexibility

November 12, 2014 – Optimum Design Associates, an Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) company located near Silicon Valley in California, is proud to announce they have ordered the first Universal Instruments Fuzion® SMT line to be installed in the area. The new Fuzion line, which places components at four times the speed of typical SMT lines, will be on line in early November, 2014.

Nick Barbin, the President of Optimum Design Associates, commented, “Our customers require flexible services delivered at the lowest possible cost. After a thorough review of competing solutions, we found the Fuzion line would provide the most competitive cost solution while still maintaining outstanding flexibility.”

Universal Instruments is the only major supplier of SMT equipment based in the United States. Universal’s Fuzion is the industry’s most adaptable and capable platform, delivering high productivity for any manufacturing environment or product mix. Fuzion drives operational excellence, enabling manufacturers to build any product at any time, accelerate new product introduction and ramp to volume, and maximize utilization, quality, and yield.

“We are very excited about the new Fuzion line,” Barbin said. “The outstanding performance in a small footprint allows enormous efficiency gains, enabling us to compete with the biggest EMS companies. We look forward to this installment and to deploying more Fuzion lines.”

“By implementing a line with a Fuzion4-120 and Fuzion2-14 Platform, Optimum can immediately take on higher-volume products,” said Glenn Farris, Universal’s Vice President of Marketing. “This configuration also provides the capacity to support future volume increases, with the flexibility to handle substantial variations in their product portfolio,” he added.
