2,000th HOTFLOW made in Zhuhai

Kurtz Zhuhai Manufacturing produces anniversary reflow soldering machine

Kurtz Zhuhai Manufacturing (KZM) reached the next milestone for its successful model in April with the production of its 2,000th reflow soldering machine – a HOTFLOW 3/26XL. Two years earlier, Sam Ho, Factory Manager at the Chinese site in Zhuhai, announced the completion of the 1,000th “Made in China” reflow soldering system. A real success story that started in 2013 with the first delivery to a Chinese customer. The team in Zhuhai is proud of its reflow customers, including several big players in electronics manufacturing operating in China with not infrequently 20 to 50 installed machines.

This shows how important KZM is as a system supplier in terms of quality and performance for Chinese SMT production. The hybrid machine strategy with a combination of German engineering and the advantages of local procurement and production continues to be a complete success. More than ten different HOTFLOW variants are currently being built in China, and the standard delivery time there is four to six weeks. KZM´s own development and design department directly takes care of the permanently increasing share of customer-specific modifications. “The success of the KZM reflow system is based on the close cooperation between Wertheim and Zhuhai as well as the high commitment of the KZM production team,” said Kurtz Ersa Asia Managing Director Bernd Schenker on the occasion of the anniversary.

R&D Center in Zhuhai

Kurtz Zhuhai Manufacturing is now expanding its highly successful production site with an R&D center that will work closely with Germany. In advance, the IT infrastructure was created to ensure parallel and synchronized engineering. In addition, it will also be possible to react more flexibly, quickly and efficiently to special customer requirements or to market trends in the highly dynamic Asian market. In addition to mechanics and electronics, capacities are generated above all in the area of software.

 

Andy Zheng brings many years of international experience to KE and is responsible for building and managing the R&D team in Zhuhai. Before joining KE, Andy already worked for many years in a leading position for a German machine building company, so that the intercultural bridge between China and Germany is also crossed without any problems.
