Essemtec will demonstrate its new FOX2 system, which combines jetting of solder paste or glue and placement in a single machine, at the SMTA International 2017, which is scheduled to take place September 19-20, 2017 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Essemtec will be in Booth 207.
FOX2 has a machine footprint of just 1m2 and can accept PCB sizes up to 16 x 12". Components with sizes from 01005 up to 1.3 x 3.1" are placed. The machine achieves 10,800 cph (IPC9850) with the release of ePLACE 23 and still remains 50 µm accuracy, 3 sigma with a two nozzle head.
The new version is based on the original award-winning platform, which is the ﬁrst machine in its class with linear motors and a mineral cast frame, providing excellent speed, stability, accuracy, and making it perfectly suited for use in small to medium production environments.
