Manncorp Installs SMT Assembly Line in Guadalajara

Reading time ( words)

Manncorp, a U.S.-based supplier of PCB assembly equipment, has installed an SMT assembly line for Continental Automotive as part of a rapid prototyping laboratory at the Instituto Tecnológico Superior de Zapopan (ITSZ) in Guadalajara.

Continental Automotive Guadalajara México, S.A. de C.V., part of German-based Continental Corporation partnered with the ITSZ campus to extend its innovation and development activities. The new production line from Manncorp is key to developing the products that come out of this partnership. The line includes two MC-385V1V pick and place machines, an PB2300 stencil printer, and a CR-6000 reflow oven.

Flexibility and fast job changes are key to this line. Manncorp’s high-precision MC-385V1V pick and place machines feature a high feeder capacity (128 slots each) and the ability to place a wide range of SMDs, from 01005 chip components to BGAs and 15 mil ultra-fine-pitch devices up to 150 x 150 mm. The PB2300 stencil printer offers quick stencil changes and tool-less squeegee changes for quick changeovers while providing excellent repeatability and print results. The CR-6000, one of Manncorp’s best-selling reflow ovens, is a full-convection, lead-free oven with a footprint smaller than you’d expect for its capability. It comes standard with a pin conveyor installed over a mesh belt, maximizing its flexibility on the production line.

Sabino De La O, Sales and Technical Support Manager for Manncorp’s Juarez, Mexico office, installed the equipment at the ITSZ campus and was present when the National Director of the Institute visited for a demonstration of the new line. An open house will be held in early July, during which Aristóteles Sandoval, Governor of the State of Jalisco, will tour the institute and the new production line.

"There’s a need for flexible solutions, so people are trying to make the most of the equipment that they buy, and they want to have the equipment that’s able to be flexible in scale with what it is that they’re looking for," said Camille Sybert of Nordson Electronics Solutions.
