Scanditron and SmartRep pool their resources.
“At Scanditron, we understand that service and support are just as important for electronics production as the machinery. And in case of need, fast response times and short distances play an important role”, says Björn Johnsson from Scanditron Denmark. SmartRep GmbH has recently become part of the Kamic Group, so is Scanditron. That is why the two companies are pooling their expertise: SmartRep will provide sales, service and support for Koh Young in Denmark from January 1, 2023.
“Because the distances by land are shorter and spare parts can be delivered faster to customers, SmartRep GmbH will support Scanditron Denmark with their manpower and expertise in Denmark”, says Andreas Keller from SmartRep. For years Scanditron is the distributor for Koh Young systems in northern Europe with branch offices in Sweden, Norway, Poland, Finland, the Baltic States and Denmark.
Scanditron provides complete SMD lines as general contractor including printing, inspection, handling and pick and place systems. As part of its full line solutions, Scanditron will of course continue to offer Koh Young systems in Denmark, knowing that customers appreciate a 360-degree project management and general entrepreneurship.
As can currently be observed in all branches of industry, economic strength is created through cooperation and networking: “We are therefore delighted to further expand our Koh Young expertise within the KAMIC Group through exchange and concentrated manpower,” says Björn Johnsson. In the current transformation phase of the SMD industry towards the smart factory, Koh Young’s optical inspection systems are an important technology driver: “Koh Young is a pioneer in SMD data analysis. I am delighted to bring our practical experience from the German-speaking market to Denmark,” says Andreas Keller.
With around 800 Koh Young systems installed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, SmartRep GmbH has many years of experience in Koh Young technology and technical support: A team of more than 12 service technicians provides help by telephone, remote support or on-site service.

We therefore complement each other particularly well and it is a real pleasure to welcome SmartRep into the KAMIC family.”
The entire management of SmartRep will continue in their current roles following the change of ownership.

MiR Launches Two Powerful Autonomous Mobile Robots
MiR600 and MiR1350, the market’s first IP52-rated AMRs, are designed for transporting heavy materials through challenging manufacturing and logistic warehouse environments.
Like MiR’s other AMRs (MiR100, MiR200, MiR250, MiR500 and MiR1000), the MIR600 and MIR1350 navigate smoothly and safely among people and other transport equipment in dynamic surroundings.
The larger MiR600 and MiR1350 are ideal for autonomously transporting heavy loads of materials and goods in:
- loading bays
- production and assembly areas
- material delivery areas
FUJI sFAB-SH entry level machine for odd-form parts
Now you can assembly large and odd-form parts automatically with FUJI sFAB-SH multipurpose automated fabrication machine.
The sFAB-SH machine is an entry level model which has now been added into the same product lineup as sFAB-D machines. In addition to the advanced versatility, scalability, and productivity of the sFAB-D machines, this machine specializes in general panel assembly as embodied in its simple platform that makes it easier to introduce.
Because the SmartFAB can handle large and heavy parts which cannot be handled on other insertion machines, a wider range of assembly can be automated. This can shorten the work time and make quality stable compared to manual insertion. By replacing heads, you can use two different specifications and get the maximum effect with minimum investment. The sH02-SH head supports large parts up to 55 mm tall and 200 g in weight whereas the sH08-SH head supports high-speed handling of small parts up to 39.5 mm tall and 20 g in weight.
