Strouse Allies with AccuPlace to Automate Adhesive Component Assembly

By Sue Chambers on Jan 25, 2019 8:07:05 AM

Partnership enables organizations to achieve extreme accuracy and repeatability through automation from a single vendor.

WESTMINSTER, MARYLAND – Strouse, a leader in adhesive converting and recipient of the 3M Supplier of the Year award, has announced a partnership with AccuPlace to help manufacturers across the globe achieve automation. As organizations across industries focus on becoming more efficient, accurate, and scalable, Strouse and AccuPlace together are helping organizations attain these goals.

AccuPlace partners with their customers to standardize adhesive component assembly challenges. They manufacture machines that cost-effectively enable organizations to utilize machine automation within their manufacturing processes.

“At Strouse, we’ve always been focused on the goals and success of our customers,” says Sue Chambers, President and CEO at Strouse. “In highly technical and highly regulated industries it can be challenging to innovate without investing significant capital and resources. Overcoming that challenge was the idea behind Sample Express, our rapid prototyping program that reduces risk and cost for our customers as they test new products. We’re now taking that a step further with AccuPlace. In addition to helping customers design and test components to find the perfect fit, we’re able to help them cost effectively scale their manufacturing with automation while reducing vendor fatigue.”

Strouse’s partnership with AccuPlace aims to help customers consolidate vendor relations by providing a single source for manufacturing automation. No longer will customers need to bring together an adhesive converter, an automation equipment vendor, and manage the relationships through the entire process to effectively scale manufacturing efforts. Strouse’s expertise in design and manufacturing coupled with AccuPlace technology introduces a cohesive experience for customers to source parts and equipment from the same vendor where all parties are involved in the design and manufacture of solutions from the onset. This synergy streamlines development and increases speed to market.
