About the Blakell Europlacer Group: We manufacture SMT pick & place equipment under the Europlacer brand as well as screen printing machines under the Speedprint brand.
As we are manufacturers of SMT machines ourselves, we are uniquely placed in the UK electronics manufacturing sector. To support our proprietary and market-leading SMT process solutions, we offer premium products and auxiliary equipment selected from trusted business partners.
Our goal is simple: to provide effective full SMT line solutions to our customers. By deploying decades of incomparable experience in SMT processing, we can supply an entire suite of complementary SMT products and solutions – and the critical expertise behind them.
That last point is pivotal. We take complete responsibility for the supply, delivery, installation, commissioning, application and field support, spares, customer service and training for every piece of equipment we supply.
That’s why we rebranded our business from Europlacer Distribution to Europlacer SMT Line Solutions, as reflected in our updated logo. Why? The traditional notion of ‘distribution’ just doesn’t do us justice. In addition to our comprehensive supply and support commitment, we also ensure that all the equipment works together seamlessly, so that you can reach your productivity goals.
To construct the very best product portfolio capable of seamless integration and flexible configuration, we only partner with the industry’s finest equipment manufacturers. And we insist that their products match the reliability, versatility and technical superiority for which Speedprint and Europlacer platforms have become world renowned.
We hope you agree that this level of service is in another league. And when you choose us as your full SMT line supply partner, you will benefit from it.
As a result of our unmatched electronics assembly expertise, we now have a huge installed base in the UK, with some of our customers dating back to the 1960s! As well as our spectacular placement and screen printing machines, the Europlacer SMT Line Solutions product range has expanded to include the following:
