Accu-Assembly to Debut New AccuLIFT at APEX 2023


Reading time ( words)

Accu-Assembly Inc., a leading industrial automation company, announced plans to exhibit during the at the 2023 IPC APEX EXPO, scheduled to take place Jan. 24-26, 2023 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. The company will introduce the new AccuLIFT for the first time in Booth #2805.

The AccuLIFT is an SMT component reel vertical modular storage and retrieval system. The base unit can store up to 3,500 7” reels, with the ability to store up to 8,000 reels with two additional vertical storage units. Component reels are stored on pallets constructed of a steel frame with ESD plastic trays. The flexible reel configuration enables small and large reels to be interchanged at any position on the pallet.

The AccuLIFT offers quick and easy changeover. The system uses VLM (Vertical Lift Module) technology that has been used reliably to store and retrieve parts for many years. Additionally, the modular system can expand vertically to conserve floor space as customers require additional reel storage. 

The system features a dual-level operator reel loading/unloading station, thus reel loading and unloading can take place simultaneously to reduce cycle time. Additional benefits include automatic barcode scanning of all reels on the pallet and automatic reel thickness detection.

Known throughout the industry as a manufacturer of quality assembly products for pick-and-place systems, Accu-Assembly’s core competency is software development and interfacing to various types of databases. The AccuLIFT has a flexible software interface for integration with SMT placement equipment and MES/ERP systems.

Book Excerpt: 'The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Solder Defects'

06/07/2022 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Solder defects in surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly have been an issue for decades. Further, the combined challenges of Pb-free soldering and ever-increasing miniaturization have resulted in new or exacerbated defects in electronics assembly, but there are proven ways to avoid defects. This book will be especially beneficial to PCB assemblers in improving their assembly processes and the reliability of the end-product, eliminating field failures, and reducing costs.

How to Minimize Quoting Time and Increase Accuracy in EMS Production

03/30/2022 | Mark Laing, Siemens Digital Industries Software
New product introductions (NPIs) and customization have been increasing rapidly over the past few years—with the results that the already-small profit margins in electronics assembly are shrinking even further. Fifteen years ago, the PCB was the product. Today, most products are a system, with multiple PCBs, cables, and enclosures. Many manufacturers want to provide turn-key products that have multiple BOMs, making the assembly process even more complicated.
