nozzle - terminology | 10 December, 1999

Hi. Placement machines use nozzles to pick up the components. I found the terms "suction nozzle", "vacuum nozzle" or simply "nozzle". Do the terms all mean the same or is there a difference? Are there also nozzles that don't work with vacuum?

Marlies, I have never seen a nozzle on any SMT machine that does not require a vacuum. As for your first question, I believe them to be all one in the same.

Marlies, Larry's correct. The terminology used to describe the nozzle is normally brought about by the methods at which the machines generate the "vacuum".

Good job Larry, it's like you just won Fuji's WHIZ-QUIZ!! Have fun all!!!!!!!!!!!

well... it depends on what you are placing. Many odd-form placement machines, like Chad or Jot, use some sort of mechanical gripper as a "nozzle" without vacuum. John Thorup

There are two types of nozzles most commonly used nozzle is vaccum type. but when it comes to odd component which is not standard either plain form. must use machenical grapper to pick up the component
