Dena Technologies Expands Manufacturing with High Performance, Flexible Automation from APEX FA

B.C. based EMS specialist Dena Technologies has recently announced the expansion of their SMT assembly capabilities with the addition of a high performance line from APEX Factory Automation. (

The new line includes the SJ Innotech HP-520S printer with 2D inspection and Mirae MX200LP high speed placement system, capable of 01005 component handling.

Dena Technologies supports a loyal customer base with some of the fastest turn-around times in the industry, delivering world-class design, manufacturing, and logistics solutions to technology companies throughout British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest.

Shabaz Hodjati, Development Director, commented “It was important for us to find high quality manufacturing equipment in terms of accuracy and speed, with quick changeover for the wide variety of contracts we fulfill. After careful review of several manufacturers, we felt the Mirae Pick and Place, with the SJ Inno Tech printer was the best fit for us in terms of production, quality and cost considerations. The technicians at Apex FA did a wonderful job with my line operators getting them trained and up to speed on the new equipment.”

“The reaction from clients has been overwhelmingly positive. Business has increased tremendously with our increased capability to produce high quality products for them. We are already looking for a bigger facility, and I thought that would be 2 years away. It has been a great experience from beginning to end.”

Mirae placement machines feature advanced linear motor technology providing speed and placement accuracy of 25µ (3σ). These flexible SMT assemblers are capable of placing 01005’s through 3.5” X 1.18” (90mm X 30mm) large SMT devices using advanced optics and inspection systems.

Apex FA Sales and Support Manager Will Crist,commented: “These systems and their capabilities may be the best kept secret in the US, but included in a worldwide installed base of over 3,000 machines, Mirae has an established presence in North America. And on close inspection, the value-performance ratio is clearly unmatched.”
