Conklin, NY — S.W. Electronics and Manufacturing Corporation (SWEMCO), an EMS provider, has purchased a Universal Instruments Genesis Platform production line. The new equipment set was complemented with Universal's Dimensions® Line Manager shop floor control software. Both are now operational in SWEMCO's New Jersey production facility. Since the installation in May, the company says that it has realized a significant throughput gain of more than 10X. SWEMCO is a contract electronics manufacturer providing high-quality, customer-driven solutions to a global customer base. Headquartered in Moorestown, New Jersey, the company has provided both surface mount and through-hole circuit board assembly for over 40 years, with a portfolio of services that includes PCB design and layout, quick-turn prototyping, PCB assembly, inventory management, and cost-of-ownership optimization.

SWEMCO purchased a Genesis Series 2 Platform production line comprised of a GC-30S, GX-11S, and GX-07S Platform, as well as Dimensions Line Manager shop floor control software to meet the challenges of drastically different requirements from each PCB customer.
The Genesis platform reportedly gives SWEMCO the most capable solution available and affords the company the future-proof confidence it needs, handling components as small as 01005s and board sizes up to 40-in. (1m) long.
Genesis enables semiconductor performance at surface mount speeds with 1µm positioning, while maintaining the flexibility to take on any odd-form challenges. The Genesis Series 2 portfolio offers a number of improvements to reduce the total cost of ownership and improve investment protection. Throughput has been improved by an average of 10 percent and vision capabilities enhanced to process multiple-field-of-view components two to three times faster. Board size capability has been increased by 40 percent, up to 1016mm long. In addition, a Vertical Part Sensor (VPS) is now available on the Lightning Head to verify part presence and positioning on the spindle prior to placement.
