Support for older Essemtec Machines Year end 2024.
« on: May 15, 2024, 07:55:25 am »
It is my understanding that historically Essemtec has offered indefinite support for all its SMT platforms where reasonably practicable.

However our local distributor just posted an announcement that Essemtec will be withdrawing support for CSM CLM and FLX platforms at the end of the year, mainly due to sourcing issues. First come first serve on remaining stocks of spares/consumables.
FLX was sold up to around 2013 or so and is the most recent of those; to my recollection just a few years before that they were also selling a variety of other machines that at the very least shared quite a bit of DNA with the older platforms. E.g Pantera which is not mentioned by name.

I'd be fairly surprised if there were a great deal of CSM or CLM (especially these) machines out there filling a critical role but I would imagine rather more FLXs still do a perfectly good job for a lot of people.

I haven't found this announcement outside of a LinkedIn post .. so far.
