April 04, 2017 – Rolling Meadows, IL – Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America has launched a new online resource for manufacturers, allowing them to quickly match non-standard components to the appropriate custom tooling needed in the electronics assembly process.
“Our goal is to exceed customers’ application-related needs at competitive prices and to ensure smooth process flow and maximum uptime,” remarked Shawn Robinson, Senior Surface Mount Product Manager, Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America. “And to do this in a quick and efficient manner for custom vacuum nozzles, mechanical chucks, trays, stick feeder tooling, and more.”
Beyond engineering expertise gained from designing hundreds of custom tools, this new, value-added online resource offers services to test tooling in advance and can provide all recognition and placement files necessary for production as quickly as within one week. “This resource aligns with our mission to provide integrated solutions that allow manufacturers to focus on managing their business… While we help manage their production challenges,” added Mr. Robinson.
Visitors to the site can search by the component vendor’s part number, description, and/or tooling type. The resulting list will include an image of the component and details of all of the custom tooling associated with that specific component. If the desired component does not appear on the existing list, the request can be sent directly to Panasonic Engineering to design exactly what’s needed.
