Our European factories in the heart of our market
Every year we invest in manufacturing and other equipment and in 2023 new equipment will be purchased and installed to improve our manufacturing and assembly capabilities.
Due to some delays in construction our new assembly facility only became operational in January 2023, this caused some capacity issues in late 2022. This new facility has almost double the capacity. 3 times the m2 that our existing facility opened in 2017. It also has 7 automated assembly lines with full redundancy giving us the flexibility we need to assemble PCB prototypes and small series with quick turnaround lead times.
The table below shows both the existing and planned assembly equipment for both Hungary (HU) and Germany (D).
|SP710 – Speedprint automatic solder paste screen printer||1||1|
|MY700 – Mycronic solder paste jetter||2||1|
|MY300 – Mycronic Pick & Place machine||5||2||1|
|Mycronic storage towers||8||6|
|ERSA hotflow reflow ovens||2||1||1|
|ERSA selective soldering machine||1||1||1|
|ASSCON VP6000 vapour phase oven||1||1||1|
|NIKON X-ray inspection||1||1|
|LPKF stencil cutter||1||1||1|
|DEXION mass storage systems||1||2|
All assembly work is checked using our PIXpect inspection system, this is a Eurocircuits developed optical inspection system based on our PCBA Visualizer technology and is specifically designed for prototype and small series inspection.
We will also make significant investments in our PCB manufacturing facilities. In Germany we will replace older equipment to improve the capabilities. In Hungary, the PCB drill department will relocate to the old assembly facility next door. The existing PCB manufacturing facility in Hungary will also be refurbished. And as the social rooms for the workers and the company reception area now reside in the new dedicated building commissioned beginning of 2022, there will be almost 2,000m2 extra available for manufacturing.
This extra space will soon be filled with the long wish list of equipment that our PCB production people want but for which there was no place to install until now.
In our spacious expansion and by our drive to do things right and sustainably and to thrive positively in our society for the future, we need to respect the environment, the local inhabitants and the people who work for us. We must therefore, make sustainable investments, make our footprint as small as possible on our planet and make Eurocircuits an enjoyable place to work. All of this is as important as developing our services to our customers.
