Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, was awarded a 2019 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Component Placement – Multi-function for its FOX2. The award was presented to the company during a Wednesday, October 23, 2019 ceremony that took place during the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum. The new FOX2 combines jetting/dispensing, 2.5D placement, electrical testing, inventory control and traceability in a single machine.

FOX2 has a machine footprint of just under 11 sq. ft and can accept PCB sizes up to 16 x 12". Components with sizes from 01005 up to 1.3 x 3.1" is placed. The machine achieves 10,800 cph (IPC9850) at 50 µm, 3 sigma with a two nozzle head.

The Two head version is our best seller 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-medium production environments. The machine achieves 10,800 cph (IPC9850) at 50 µm, 3 sigma with a two nozzle head. 

Essemtec’s FOX2 can be fitted with a Jet valve for SMD glue or solder paste for hassle-free manufacturing of 2.5D assemblies or lower cost micro screw valve. Fox2 also features our award-winning software ePlace found on all platforms.

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers over the last 12 months.
