Video Display Corp Invests In Additional Capacity In NY's Ontario County

PHELPS, N.Y., Feb. 1, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To meet steadily growing demand for its contract design and manufacturing services subsidiary, Z-AXIS Inc., Video Display Corporation (Nasdaq:VIDE) has committed additional investments in both equipment and people for the Company's specialty power supply and electronic printed circuit board assembly at its Ontario County facility. To handle the additional demand, the Company has created in excess of 20 new manufacturing job positions in Ontario County to facilitate the new Philips "Assembléon" AX-501 high-speed pick-and-place line which can place 60,000 parts per hour and handle the smallest standard SMT components available today. In addition, a new fully-automated MPM UP3000 Ultraflex stencil printer and a BTU International Pyramax 98 reflow oven were added to support the new line.

The new high-speed Assembléon line allows continuous production of printed circuit boards for Z-AXIS customers with high-volume production needs. It complements the company's existing MyData pick-and-place line, which was expanded in early 2010 and supports a high mix of lower-volume production runs with rapid change-over between jobs.

"In 2010 we completed numerous electronic product designs which are now going into high-volume production – many on the order of thousands of boards per week," said Michael Allen, president of Z-AXIS. "With the new Assembléon line dedicated to those higher-volume jobs, we can meet those customers' ongoing shipment release dates. Simultaneously, with our existing MyData line we can continue to be responsive to our many customers who have lower-volume requirements but still need the fast turn-around and high quality manufacturing that Z-AXIS is known for."
