Processors are opening their wallets to buy customized automated assembly and testing systems, according to Ken Thuro, president of Cassco Machines Inc., Toronto. The pick up is coming after a period of relative tight spending on such equipment.
"Things are really taking off," said Thuro at the Plast-Ex show, where Cassco was exhibiting. "People have finally figured out if they bite the bullet now and invest, they can get a return on that investment in about one year."
Thuro said the increase in spending for automated assembly equipment seemed to be across all markets, including consumer goods, hardware and automotive.
In one recent application, Cassco helped a customer automate seven different operations, including leak testing, in order to reach the designated price point on a product the company making.
