Able Design Introduces New Automated SSD Label Applicator

NEW M1088 AUTOMATED LABEL MACHINE FOR GROWING SSD MARKET

Mountain View, CA - September 15, 2010 - Able Design, www.abledesigninc.com, capitalized on their M108x series product development to quickly introduce a fast and efficient label machine for the SSD marketplace. "We've been in the FLASH Memory market for numberous years." said John Meadows , Able Design president and founder.  "It was a natural for us to develop an automated label applicator for our customers that have added SSD to their product line. We took what we learned in designing our larger M108x units and adapted it for SSDs. The SSDs were a natural fit"

The M1088 utilizes adjustable guide rails and differing adapter plates to support SSD of various sizes, although most are in the 2.5" form factor. The M1088 comes with either a fixed or removable input hopper, depending on customers' requirements. With the M1088, SSDs can be labeled at rate of up to 2500 parts per hour with an accuracy of 0.010".

"The M1088 is also an extension of our hugely successful M1052 and M1062 series label machines.  The base was lengthened to allow room for the added print head and optional up stacker." said John Meadows, Able Design President and Chief Engineer.  The M1088 has an accuracy of +- .005" with excellent repeatability, speed is around 2500 devices per hour, and can come with removable input hoppers. An included informative front panel display simplifies the operation of the machine by providing an adaptive menu system to operate, adjust, and maintain the machine. Detailed help is also quickly made available with a touch of a button.

The M1082-2P is available from Avon Technology (www.avontechnology.com)for customers in the Americas and Asia.  For our European and other customers, the M1082-2P is available from Multi Media Replication (www.replication.com), a distributor based in Andover, Hampshire, England.
