REPStronics’ new demo and training facility in Guadalajara will highlight Panasonic’s latest, award-winning surface mount equipment, PanaCIM® MES software, and SP Series printers. REPStronics’ relationship with PanaCIM Certified Technical Partner Koh Young will also allow us to collectively demonstrate the industry’s only closed-loop adaptive process control (APC), which maximizes yields despite paste location. In addition to advanced Panasonic technologies and equipment, customers can also capitalize on REPStronics’ expertise in complementary applications like fiber optics, soldering, and inspection, as well as cable and harness assembly.
