The Essemtec Fox can have up to 180 feeder lanes, needs only 1sqm of floor space and can accept PCBs of up to 406 x 305 mm. It is expandable in any direction. The Fox can drive up to 180 feeder lanes, illustrating its dedication to high-mix production. Due to its small footprint and reasonable weight, the machine is ideal for use in limited space production areas even those located on upper floors.

Registration opens at 8:00 AM and includes a complimentary lunch on the show floor.  Exhibits are open from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM and the first technical presentation will start at 9:30 AM.
