Universal Instruments Corp.
P.O. Box 825
Binghamton, NY, 13902 0825

Press release date: March 21, 2014

Industry's broadest range of fully integrated technologies and exclusive expertise enable powerful, flexible solutions for all electronics manufacturing environments.

Universal Instruments will display its comprehensive portfolio of solutions building blocks at the 2014 IPC APEX EXPO held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, Las Vegas, NV on March 25 – 27. On booth 1125, the company will feature surface mount, odd-form, through-hole, and automation platform technologies, as well as advanced process expertise to meet a full range of electronics assembly challenges.

"We're really pleased to be showcasing our breadth of capabilities at this year's APEX show," said Universal Instruments Vice President of Marketing, Glenn Farris. "Our ability to provide complete, single-vendor assembly and automation solutions for any product mix sets us apart in terms of the value we provide our customers." Farris continued, "On our booth, we'll be demonstrating the automation of an extensive component mix across a range of technologies, as well as introducing two new machine models which have been added to our portfolio to align with market demands." 

Two models from Universal's flagship FuzionŽ Platform lineup will be on the booth. The Fuzion1-30 is a superb high-speed line booster or a flexible solution for higher mix environments, and will feature the latest Fuzion software with enhanced ease-of-use and utilization tools. The new FuzionOF™ is the industry's fastest and most versatile high-speed automation platform, handling a diverse range of pin-in-paste odd-form, surface mount odd-form, standard surface mount, and semiconductor applications.

In addition, Universal will introduce the new Radial 88HT 3.5mm radial component sequencer and inserter with 2.5/3.5/5.0mm triple-span tooling. The Radial 88HT automates the insertion of tape-packaged radial components faster and more reliably than manual processes. For end-of-line processes, the Radial 88HT leverages a programmable insertion head and clinch to avoid damaging surface mount components.

Universal's Polaris Assembly Cell will also be on display. Polaris provides flexible automation for a wide range of complex front- and back-end processes on a standard platform to help manufacturers improve output and yield, while realizing a faster ROI. Polaris automates a variety of assembly processes, including pick and place for large and complex devices, dispensing, bar code reading, vision, screw driving, and labeling.
