April 15, 2015 – Universal Instruments will feature two offerings from the industry’s broadest technology portfolio at the 2015 NEPCON China trade show to be held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center on April 21 – 23. The company will exhibit its award-winning Fuzion® surface mount platform, demonstrating the Fuzion2-60™ variant as well as the Radial 88HT 3.5mm radial insertion platform on Channel Partner Gentron’s Stand: B-1F16. These products are representative of Universal’s complete solutions lineup of flexible platforms for surface mount, insertion mount, advanced semiconductor packaging, and end-of-line automation.

On the booth, Universal will highlight the capabilities of its Radial 88HT 3.5mm radial component sequencer and inserter. With 2.5/3.5/5.0mm triple-span tooling, the Radial 88HT automates a wide range of radial components at consistently high throughputs with an industry-leading reliability of 300 ppm.

Universal’s Fuzion2-60 will also be on display, featuring a 01005 – 30 mm square component range, industry-leading cost per placement, and a low cost of ownership. Fuzion2-60 is a powerful line booster or high-performance small part placement solution for a variety of production environments.

“We’ve enjoyed great success with our insertion mount and surface mount customers over the years here in China and it’s a pleasure to demonstrate these products on our booth,” commented Farris. “As the industry evolves to embrace an automated, integrated smart factory concept, we also want to highlight our value as a complete solutions provider with both the expertise and breadth of technologies to help manufacturers realize this.”
