Apex FA to Introduce Mirae MAI Odd Placement Machine at IPC APEX

Reading time ( words)

Apex Factory Automation will be introducing the new Mirae MAI machine to the North American Market at the IPC Expo February 14-16th in San Diego: 

The Mirae MAI is a flexible hybrid machine which uses SMT Mounter technology to perform odd part insertion and placement. Its unique features include lead straightness inspection of thru hole parts before placement into the PCB via laser (preventing scrap parts and boards.) It also features a post placement component insertion verification using it’s unique ZHMD system. The MAI can feed bulk parts via vibratory bowl, or packaged parts in stick, SMT tape, and tray as well as both axial and radial tape and reel leaded components. Customized Gripper nozzles are available for all types of parts up 55mm tall, and the MAI can place standard SMT parts at high speed also. 

SJ_Inno.jpgApex FA will also be exhibiting its award winning SJ Inno Tech HP-520SPI printer, the only SMT printer on the market that includes full PCB 3D SPI, giving feedback to the printer with zero time penalty, all in a single compact machine footprint. This award winning machine has received industry accolades by capturing both the Circuits Assembly NPI award and Global SMT Technology awards. Come see what all the buzz is about. 

Also highlighted at the show will be the Xavis A-130 Xray system which will be presenting state-of-the-art 2D and MicroCT 3D Xray imaging. The new version of the VX3D class-leading 3D rendering/analysis software will also be demonstrated, showing the remarkable resolution and detail of Xray images only available with CT scanning technology.
