GJD invests in new SMT machine

Heywood, Greater Manchester (UK)

The new Hanwha Techwin SM482 Plus Surface Mount Technology (SMT) machine at GJD.

GJD has committed to an investment in a new top of the range Hanwha Techwin SM482 Plus Surface Mount Technology (SMT) machine.

The new machine will enable high-speed automation during the electronic assembly process, and additionally drive efficiency and the bottom-line impact of GJD’s carbon footprint.

Mark Topp, Operations Manager at GJD, said: “Our investment in state-of-the-art SMT technology is a real gamechanger for our business. The equipment significantly decreases our carbon footprint and aligns with our wider commitment to being a responsible and sustainable manufacturer in the security industry. We are able to provide reliable continuity of supply to our customers and establish ourselves as a truly ‘Made in Britain’ brand.”

Having previously outsourced some of the SMT assembly, GJD will now be able to complete the manufacture of its products in-house and thereby significantly decrease the business’ carbon footprint, whilst increasing UK employment opportunities.

The new machine also provides GJD with greater flexibility to manufacture, stock and supply its products in small batches, thus allowing the business to expedite its customers orders on time and in full.

With nearly 40 years of experience in the security industry, GJD is an award-winning UK manufacturer, designer and supplier of professional external detector equipment, LED illuminators, lighting controllers and ANPR cameras. GJD is a proud recipient of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade and has also achieved many other security industry awards including the BSIA’s contribution to exporting.
