The 3Z is the latest version in the Contact 3 Series of SMT placement machines. Several speed enhancements reportedly have increased the maximum placement rate by more than 60 percent (13,000 cph). Faster motors with non-contact linear encoders are said to have increased head speed by 167 percent and table speed by 52 percent. Servo-driven Z axes increase cycle speed while improving placement force control. The unit retains its split-axis design with independent dual heads, 100 percent vision centering and comprehensive software.
