THT Thriving in the Pro-Audio Industry
NAMM Show 2017
While in attendance at the 2017 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show last month we found one thing to be true… THT Equipment is far from dead. The music industry continues to require robust and durable components for high quality and heavy duty gear. GEAR, GEAR, GEAR! And the better the gear the more likely THT was involved in the assembly. Proving that THT is not just surviving but thriving in our high-tech world.
But there are many missing links! Many of these specialty components are still placed by hand and many more are still IMPORTED. Opportunities abound for manufacturers to bring all assembly, quality control, and profits back home. Quality is the name of the game when it comes to being #1 in any product category but costs sometimes hold back some manufacturers. According to Joel Menchey, Menchey Music Service, import costs for audio manufacturers are the highest of all costs. This doesn’t have to be so.
We at Southern Machinery have the solutions to lower costs and improve your manufacturing assembly quality! Our S-600-OF Through-hole & Surface Mounting Multifunction Machine paves the way to incorporate THT with SMT technologies. We can help you design the exact machine for your needs, ordered to spec. It’s a simple conversation for a huge shift in ideology and savings.
