DATE RELEASED:            DATE 10th January 2014

XCEL Power Systems Ltd are pleased to announce that they have been completed the installation and commissioning of a new Mydata MY100LXe 1H Surface Mount component placement machine. This new machine will increase the placement accuracy of components and will allow placement of components as small as ‘01005’.

Additionally this machine has an increase feeder capacity (176x 8mm feeders) as well as being able to use the latest generation smart feeder with a faster component placement rate.

To supplement the new Surface Mount placement machine XCEL has purchased and installed a new DEK Horizon 03iX paste machine. This will ensure the pasting accuracy which in turn has a major ‘knock on’ effect on the overall component placement accuracy.

 Additionally XCEL has purchased and installed a new SOLVAC T1 PCB cleaning plant; this has now also been installed and will ensure the efficient cleaning of all our PCB’s whilst complying with the latest legislation.

Commenting on the new equipment, Richard Weller, Managing Director of XCEL Power Systems stated ‘This considerable investment both in the equipment mentioned above, and the refurbishment of both the surface mount and process areas of the factory show that we are looking to further align our capabilities both to our customers’ expectations and to the technology available in both the component and manufacturing areas. It is expected that this level of investemet in new plant and machinery, as well as to the improvement of the current facilities, will continue into 2014/2015.
