Irthlingborough, Northants, UK - Oct 23, 2013 - Sonifex has recently expanded its surface-mount manufacturing capacity by adding another complete surface-mount assembly line and increased the production working area by 2.5 times. A new DEK Horizon 03i solder paste screen-printing machine, along with an i-Pulse M20 pick and place machine have been installed in the new surface mount line, together with a new vapor phase oven. The new machinery has increased component placement capacity by four times.

Managing Director Marcus Brooke commented, "2012 was our best year ever with our highest turnover, and at times we were running short of manufacturing space. Since then we've taken on another factory unit, relocated our stock warehouse, added another surface mount manufacturing line and moved our manufacturing to create more streamlined cells within our current building. We've had a significant growth in product lines over the last 5 years, which has increased customer demand and driven our sales upward. We're quite unusual in that we do most of our own manufacturing and assembly, having electronics surface-mount machinery, sub-assembly and full product test facilities as well as an engineering workshop for metalwork manufacture. Having control of the manufacturing process helps to keep our quality high and product lead-times low and the new equipment will mean that we now have increased capacity and output".
