Reading time ( words)

Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, has announced plans to exhibit the new FOX compact pick-and-place machine at the SMTA New England Expo & Tech Forum and the SMTA LA/Orange County Expo & Tech Forum, both on Thursday, November 3, 2016. The New England Expo will take place at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA, and the LA/Orange County Expo will take place at The Grand Event Center in Long Beach, CA. The FOX measures only 88 x 109 cm and it can accept PCBs up to 406 x 305 mm. Components with sizes from 0201 (imperial) up to 33 x 80 mm can be placed, optionally up to 80 x 80 mm.

FOX is the first machine in its class with linear motors and a mineral cast frame, providing exceptional speed, stability and accuracy, and making it perfectly suited for use in small production environments. It places 4500 cph (IPC9850A) with accuracy of 50 µm @ 3σ.

Essemtec’s FOX can be fitted with a dispense valve for SMD glue or solder paste for hassle-free manufacturing of 2.5D assemblies. FOX also features Essemtec’s award-winning software ePlace found on the Paraquda, Cobra and Scorpion platforms.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
