Texcel Purchases 2 New Europlacer iineo+ Machines

Due to continued exceptional growth Texcel Technology have invested in a further 2 Europlacer  iineo+ Pick & Place machines to expand capacity, flexibility and meet the growing need for smaller component sizes. The relationship with Europlacer goes back more than 24 years, with the initial purchase of just one EP600 machine. Andy McLeod, Managing Director stated “We have had a long term business partnership with Europlacer that stretches back to 1994, when we were attracted to the flexibility of the platform, intelligent feeders and the range of devices that one machine could place. We have added machines and accessories over the years culminating in 7 assembly lines”. Europlacer have always maintained an approach of protecting their customers’ investment, specifically regarding the feeders on their machines. “When buying a machine, a large part of the investment is in the accessories and feeders. We have managed to amass a large number of Europlacer Trolleys and Feeders and although there are newer versions available now, we are able to use these older accessories on the new iineo+ machines that we have just purchased, and we didn’t need to re-invest in additional feeders which helps” commented McLeod.

“Of course the technology is critical to our business and the Europlacer machines can handle everything we throw at them, but of equal importance is the support that we receive from the supplier. Europlacer have always been there to help us when we have had any issues and have never let us down” says McLeod “our business has seen significant growth this year, and the investment in 2 more Europlacer machines was an easy decision for the reasons I mentioned”
