At the Blundell Production Equipment stand (H60), electronic design consultancy, Cubik Innovation confirmed the placing of a £65,000 order for a Fritsch PA520 pick and place machine for its Bristol operation. Paul Mullen, Cubik Innovation’s Managing Director was at the show to hand Blundell’s Area Sales Manager, Keith Gummer, the purchase order on the company’s stand.
The machine increases production capability, adding a third line to the consultancy’s manufacturing, said Paul. Cubik specialises in design, protyping and production of <1,000 pieces. The new machine increases capabiliyt, is a technology step up and offers more flexibility. Cubik is an existing customer for Blundell but it is nice to see people face-to-face after two years of restrictions due to Covid. Keith added: “This machine will enable Cubik to respond quickly to customer requirements and the set-up time is less than earlier models”.
