Japanese Companies in the US


By coincidence, another Binghamton, New York company, surface-mount assembly equipment manufacturer UNIVERSAL INSTRUMENTS CORP., will continue to be able to draw on the expertise of SANYO HIGH TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. The two recently extended a 1989 agreement under which the Japanese firm supplies high-speed chip placement machines to Universal Instruments on an original equipment manufacturer basis. The latest is the 4796R HSP, a small-footprint, fast (up to 36,000 parts per hour) component placement system that is said to appeal to communications, computer and other manufacturers concerned about throughput per square foot of floor space.

An exchange rate of ¥140=$1.00 was used in this report.
