The FCM, with speeds of up to 96,000 cph, has a footprint of 50 sq. ft. The slow movements of up to 16 independent placement modules, along with stationary feeders and boards, reportedly allow the unit to achieve a defect rate of less than 25 ppm, placing components as small as 0201. Vision modules allow placement of components down to 0.020" pitch.
