Universal Releases the Vantis Platform - Where Value and Versatility Meet

New machine targets small- to mid-size manufacturers

As the number of small- to mid-sized circuit board manufacturers increases, so too does the demand for less expensive component placement equipment with fewer options and capabilities than high-end machines. Universal Instruments announces the release of the Vantis(TM) platform, an accurate and reliable placement platform introduced to meet the needs of small- to mid-size consumer electronics, audio-visual equipment, PC, and peripheral manufacturers.

Vantis is built on the same foundation as Universal's flagship GSM® Platform. The machine has been streamlined by removing many features required by larger manufacturers, facilitating a list price under $200,000 USD. Vantis incorporates a single-beam positioning system, and supports a limited number of heads, cameras, and configurations. A choice of 7-spindle high speed, or 4-spindle flexible heads accommodates a wide component range, while Asian language application support, extensive networking capabilities, and an intuitive graphical interface make the Vantis easy to use.

While focused on providing value, Vantis offers the stability, reliability, and world-class support that are synonymous with Universal equipment. "The Vantis will allow Universal to compete with existing mid-range equipment, and introduce additional value through our traditional strengths - robust equipment, expertise, service and support - things you seldom get from companies offering just a low price," said Aaron Saxton, Business Development Manager for Mid-Range Products.
