TTems invests £2m in new electronics manufacturing facilities

TT Electronic Manufacturing Services : 29 November, 2007  (New Product)
TTems based in Wales has invested 2million in new electronics manufacturing facilities and anticipates strong growth in 2008.
The investment is in line with TTems’ technology roadmap and strategy of future proofing all sites. At its base in Rogerstone, South Wales, the company has installed the latest Siemens Siplace D-series SMT placement equipment, upgraded existing SMT lines, and grown its systems integration and logistical capabilities by expanding manufacturing and commercial premises from 5,100m2 to 8,300 m2.

The new facilities are primarily for system assembly within the UK, and enable a fully integrated logistics service, supporting TTems' customers using its low cost offshore manufacturing capability in Malaysia and China.

Managing director Andrew Cox said, “Contrary to the negative growth that many UK-based contract electronics manufacturers, CEMs, are currently experiencing, TTems is responding to an increasing number of market opportunities. This latest round of investment increases our surface-mount capacity by 25 percent and enhances our ability to provide scalable end-to-end services. It also demonstrates strong commitment from TT electronics, our parent, to the long-term viability of its UK manufacturing base.

“An increasing number of customers need their high volume electronic product-lines to be manufactured globally.

“TTems offers local programme management to help achieve this, replicating the manufacturing processes at each of its manufacturing sites in the UK, USA, Malaysia and China.”

In addition to modern SMT assembly-lines, TTems provides expertise in manufacturing processes such as laser-formed, stepped, solder-paste stencils as used in the production of complex, flexi-rigid SMT assemblies.

TTems Rogerstone is geared to handle small-to-medium production volumes and capable of manufacturing the most complex electronic products. The new equipment allows placement of any type of surface-mount devices from 01005 chips to the largest fine pitch components, micro BGAs and odd-formed components such as RF shields and unusual connectors.

The additional capacity also enables TTems to handle around 200 new product introductions per year and to be more responsive to customers needing higher production rates of both RoHS and Non RoHS products.

TTems, one of the largest UK owned EMS companies, has become one of the most sophisticated SMT manufacturers in the industry. It provides development, PCB layout, electronic manufacturing and logistical services to customers in many business sectors including medical, aerospace, automotive, communications (including RF), consumer electronics, defence and IT.
