Essemtec, a leading manufacturer of surface mount technology (SMT) production equipment, announces that it will showcase flexible Swiss-made solutions in Booth #127 at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 18-19, 2011 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX.

The Paraquda 4C pick-and-place system combines a large feeder capacity, fast programming and changeover while the machine is running, with the ability to quickly place any component from 01005 up to 40x40 mm including fine-pitch, BGA, CSP or flip chips. The Paraquda series automatic pick-and-place machines are designed to fulfill the requirements of a high-mix SMT production. All SMD components are placed quickly, and are reproducible and reliable using modern placement technologies.

The system features a three-stage conveyor with manual rail adjustment, and a tool changer with 1x36 positions and 14 nozzles. The high-resolution fly-by vision system is equipped with the latest Cognex SMD image processing technology, thus can detect any kind of component – even odd-shaped parts. The Paraquda is the first machine generation worldwide that is operated by ePlace - the new standard in pick-and-place software.

ePlace, the new software designed entirely by Essemtec, is based on the company’s eez-technology. It has been fully developed in .net, uses an integrated database and offers a modern, interactive, intelligent and intuitive tool for controlling all parameters.

Essemtec’s Tucano automatic stencil printer was designed based on experiences from solar wafer printing and metallization. The printer uniquely combines accuracy and quality with high-speed and reliability. Tucano features a unique double camera vision system with no moving parts or mirrors.

Tucano features a unique design with only one XY-drive for vision, PCB stopper, stencil cleaning system, stencil load and unload, and 2D inspection. The special design increases the reliability of the printer and simplifies maintenance. Additionally, Tucano requires less space than other printers with a 600 x 580 mm printing area on a footprint of only 1.3 m2. It uses fewer motors than other systems for its operation and, therefore, uses less drive control electronics and energy.
