The Marl SMT Centre reaches its first anniversary. We look back on how it's transformed our capabilities, and look forward to new projects to come.
1.2m PCBs being manufactured in Marl's Surface Mount Technology Centre - our largest boards to date. Marl has the capability to produce PCBs up to 1.4m in length, and is the most experienced LED lighting manufacturer in the UK in producing PCBs of such large lengths.
Marl recently paid a visit to Barrow-in-Furness based BAE Systems, to illustrate our capabilities to support the Defence industry. We briefly discuss our Defence Capabilities.
Take a walk around the Marl Production Suite - including our Surface Mount Technology Centre, CNC and Production Engineering, and our Specials Room concentrating on the production of non-standard products for customer-specific applications.
On Tuesday 28th April, Distribution Director Graham Round visited the Rural Enterprise Centre in Penrith, supported by Cumbria Rural Enterprise Agency, to present LED lighting for multiple applications, and discuss products that can help businesses make significant savings on lighting energy use and reduce their carbon footprint...
In November 2014, Marl presented the new SMT Centre. Marl's SMT and LED assembly facility as a result of the investment now has the capacity to process 80k components per hour.
Marl has enhanced its Design capability with the investment of a new 3D Printer, which can offer a prototyping service to customers. The Ultimaker 2 builds 3D objects, layer by layer, using molten plastic. As each layer is built, the plastic cools down and solidifies, creating a 3 dimensional object.
