Essemtec to Introduce the First Pick-and-Place System in its Class with Linear Motors and a Mineral Cast Frame


Reading time ( words)

Essemtec will exhibit in Booth #306 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place September 27-28, 2016 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Essemtec will demonstrate the new FOX pick-and-place machine, Spider jet dispenser and Cubus storage system.

Compact Pick-and-Place Machine

The new FOX by Essemtec is the first machine in its class with linear motors and a mineral cast frame, providing exceptional speed, stability, and accuracy, and making it perfectly suited for use in small production environments. FOX measures only 88cm x 109cm and it can accept PCBs up to 406mm x 305mm. Components with sizes from 0201 (imperial) up to 33x80mm can be placed, optionally up to 80x80mm. 4500 cph (IPC9850A) with 50 µm @ 3σ.

Essemtec’s FOX can be fitted with a dispense valve for SMD glue or solder paste for hassle-free manufacturing of 2.5D assemblies. Fox also features our award winning software ePlace found on the Paraquda, Cobra and Scorpion platforms.

The new Spider features a dispensing capability of up to 150,000 dots/hr (with Piezo Jet Valve) and accommodates boards up to 406x305 mm. With advanced laser height mapping, Spider offers compensation for substrate warp/3D applications. Spider offers the same benefits as the Scorpion system, but in a much more compact footprint and with only two valves. Spider’s sleek design requires only 1 m² of production floor space.

Not only can it work quickly but it is accurate, placing dots within 50 µm @ 3σ at full speed, resulting in improved throughput. With three jet speed options (basic, standard and high speed), the Spider is optimized for short, ultra-fast moves. The dispenser features high maximum dispensing speeds: Jet Valve: 150,000 dots/hr; Pneumatic Jet Valve: 80,000 dots/hr; Time/Pressure Valve: 28,000 dots/hr; Archimedean Screw: 24,000 dots/hr.

Next-Generation SMT Storage System

Cubus innovates how SMT components are stored and provisioned for electronic manufacturing. For the first time, a storage device is fully user configurable and hence adapts to the dynamic manufacturing needs. There are no limitations in terms of reel sizes, reel widths or JEDEC trays. With its flexible shelf configuration, foolproof operation and easy line integration, it easily adapts to the ever-changing manufacturing environments. Thanks to its small footprint and high storage capacity (up to 932 reels), Cubus can be positioned close to any SMT manufacturing line. Cubus interfaces easily with pick-and-place machines and, thus, greatly reduces kitting time and errors as well as machine interruptions due to missing or misplaced material. Configure – Operate – Integrate!
