Monrovia, Calif. – Miyachi Unitek Corp. has announced the opening of an application lab near Sao Paulo, Brazil. The new facility will bring the company's welding, marking, and reflow soldering technology closer to South American customers.
The Brazilian application laboratory will allow Miyachi Unitek’s representatives to more quickly serve the South American continent. Instead of shipping customer samples to the U.S. laboratories for evaluation, representatives can run samples in Brazil and provide faster recommendations about the most appropriate technology for a customer application. The new laboratory will also provide South American customers with a faster way to replace damaged equipment; it will stock loaner equipment for emergencies.
In addition, the new facility will enable South American customers to see and test the company’s equipment in person. “They can now sit with our application engineers and discover, with their own eyes, how our equipment works with their production parts," said Antonio Ruiz, South America regional sales manager.
The application lab will offer a wide variety of welding, marking, and reflow soldering technology. The equipment list includes the LMF2000 fiber laser marker, DC25 linear DC welding control, HF27 high frequency inverter resistance welding control, ISA-500CR mid-frequency inverter resistance welding power supply, MM-370A weld checker, DT-440-PH manual rotary desktop bonder, and a variety of weld heads.
The new application laboratory will be located at the Quart Company facility, Miyachi Unitek’s laser representative for most of Brazil, and will be open to any company representative.
