TDK Corp has announced further investments at its TDK-Lambda UK manufacturing facility in Ilfracombe, North Devon.
In addition to the £1 million invested in the recently opened EMC centre, the company has spent £250,000 on new equipment and plans to spend another £590,000 in the next nine months.
TDK-Lambda’s UK joint managing director, Phil Scotcher, said: “These investments, including the new Surface Mount Technology placement line and the automatic optical inspection equipment, will enable us to increase our capacity and maximise up-time.
“However, we are also investing in new leading-edge technologies, such as additive manufacturing equipment, laser marking and an experimental robotic arm, which will help reduce cost and time to market for new product introductions.”
