Once again the Hotel Relax in Roznov pod Radhoštěm was the venue for the annual event of the Czech Ersa partner PBT. On 22 and 23 May, more than 120 customers from the Czech Republic and Slovakia gathered there to listen to lectures on electronics manufacturing, network and exchange experiences. After being welcomed by PBT Managing Director Antonin Kubik, the first part started with lectures on SMT and THT. Nicolas Bartschat, Product Manager Industry 4.0, spoke about the current status quo and pointed out the manifold possibilities associated with Ersa products.
At 3 p.m. the event was moved from the hotel to the adjacent PBT business premises. Numerous machines of the partner companies were installed there in the application center, which gave a very good impression of the broad PBT product spectrum. Divided into five groups, live presentations took place at the exhibits. Ersa was represented with two selective soldering systems - VERSAFLOW 4/55 and SMARTFLOW 2020 - and the stencil printer VERSAPRINT 2 Ultra3. Wolfram Hübsch, Product Manager Printer, presented the numerous features and options as well as the globally unique integrated 3D post-print inspection. “The event offered many opportunities and time to talk to individual customers,” said Radek Lauer, Ersa Area Sales Manager for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, looking forward to further developments.
