New Mikron EcoLine™ platform: successful market launch

Mikron Automation – Media release

Boudry, April 2, 2012. – In the first quarter of 2012 Mikron Automation received its sixteenth order for its latest assembly platform, the Mikron EcoLine™. This innovative assembly solution was developed specifically for the emerging economies in Asia. The successful launch bodes extremely well for the further development of Mikron’s automation business within this region.

The initial orders for the Mikron EcoLine platform mainly stem from new customers in Singapore, China, Malaysia and India: Most of them are active in the medical, automotive or electronics industries. However, there is also growing interest in Mikron Automation’s new assembly solution in Europe, with a number of orders being received from the automotive and medical device industries. The Mikron EcoLine™ platform is manufactured almost entirely at the Singapore site. The concept made its public debut at Medtec China at the end of 2009, and its European launch took place at the 2010 Automatica trade fair in Munich.
