Mycronic is to acquire atg Luther & Maelzer, a leading global developer, manufacturer and supplier of advanced equipment for electrical testing of PCBs and substrate. The acquisition strengthens and broadens Mycronic's offering and creates a platform in the field of electrical testing. 

atg Luther & Maelzer, with approximately 190 employees and domiciled in Wertheim, Germany, develops, produces and sells advanced equipment that tests, measures and verifies PCBs and substrate. atg Luther & Maelzer's leading position is built on proprietary technology for Flying Probe Test (FPT) Systems and Grid Test Systems. The Asian market, with a focus on China and Taiwan, accounts for approximately three-quarters of net sales.

The acquisition strengthens Mycronic generally and underlines the Global Technologies division’s focus on leading niche technologies

“The PCB manufacturing market is performing well and is expected to develop further over the next few years. The addition of atg Luther & Maelzer broadens our offering and creates a platform for electrical testing. The acquisition strengthens Mycronic generally and underlines the Global Technologies division’s focus on leading niche technologies, which have the potential to grow faster than the market as a whole,” says Anders Lindqvist, President and CEO of Mycronic.

Mycronic’s acquisition of atg Luther & Maelzer encompasses the entire global operations of the company, including companies in Taiwan, Germany and China. Following the transaction, which is expected to be finalized at the end of June 2021, atg Luther & Maelzer will become part of Mycronic’s Global Technologies division.

Taking productivity to new heights

Debating whether to upgrade from racks and shelves to an intelligent material handling system? With the help of Mycronic's storage towers, one Florida-based electronics manufacturer shows how smarter material handling not only cuts kitting times and repetitive manual work – it can also significantly increase production volume.

Solder paste perfection at jet speed

Since its introduction over a decade ago, solder paste jet printing has continued to improve the quality and versatility of electronics manufacturers worldwide. This is especially true in the world of high-mix electronics, where the high accuracy and high flexibility of software-driven assembly processes are crucial to competitiveness. Now, with faster jetting speeds, a wider range of compatible solder pastes and tightly integrated solder paste inspection (SPI) capabilities, jet printing has matured into a powerful platform for increased production efficiency and improved first-pass yield.
