Can your SMD manufacturing Line
keep up with all changes?

SMT Renting is addressing a strong demand for flexibility in the electronic manufacturing industry.

This is not done via a special technical feature but by an interesting financial & economical aspect. Where customers used to purchase their production equipment and then depreciate this line over many (even up to 10) years, it has become more attractive to start an operational lease. More and more smart managers are realizing that the use of their production line is more important than the ownership of it. Looking to the recent success of car private leasing, consumers recognize this as well.

The world is changing faster than ever before, why buying something for 5 – 10 years when you don’t know if it’s the right solution for the years to come. Wouldn’t it be great if you could update the equipment every few years to match your changing production requirements or simply because equipment vendors have introduced more competitive solutions.

SMT Renting offers this flexible lease concept. It’s not a traditional financial lease like banks are offering but it’s a full operational lease with maximum flexibility. The focus of SMT Renting is purely the electronic manufacturing industry, working close with equipment vendors. Sales and service execution remains with the equipment vendor but with SMT Renting it’s possible to STOP & SWAP the equipment regularly, all at a very attractive monthly rate. This gives many benefits to the end user, both in flexibility and cost.

Technology on demand

Electronic products are changing every year or even sometimes every few months. New components, PCB’s or technology require that Electronic Manufactures keep their equipment up to date. SMT-Renting allows the user to exchange single machines or even a total production line to better match new technology requirements.

Capacity on demand

Business forecast is becoming more and more unpredictable and capacity requirements can change unexpectedly. SMT Renting allows users to overcome this by exchanging equipment to match the required capacity. This keeps the user more agile and enables them to take advantage of short term business opportunities. There is less risk and no need for making long term investments.
