Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronics manufacturing services to OEMs, recently invested in an Assembléon AX-501 pick-and-place system with a 47-tray TEM unit.

The AX-501 was chosen because of its combined flexibility, speed and placement accuracy. We have realized significant improvements in our throughput and DPM rates. We look forward to continued improvements as we acquire more machines from the same platform. The Assembléon team dedicated a great deal of resources to help us get up to speed. The continued service and support we are getting are superb,” stated Farid Anani, Computrol’s Manufacturing Manager.

The new AX-501 is fully modular with an output of up to 121,000 components/hour (IPC9850) and 260 feeding inputs. Even with such high placement rates, it has accuracy down to an excellent 25μm, CpK>1.0. The equipment places components varying from 01005 at full speed, right up to those measuring 45 mm2. With easy-to-use feeder trolleys, fast changeovers are guaranteed.

With the implementation of the AX501, Computrol benefits from the highest placement accuracy with constant component monitoring from pick-to-place and on-the-fly laser alignment. Additionally, the system features a fully software controlled service-driven pick-and-place cycle: controlled pick, optimum acceleration and deceleration process, and controlled placement.

Computrol has installed the new AX-501 at its manufacturing facility in Meridian, Idaho. The purchase demonstrates Computrol’s commitment to continuous improvement in every element of the business. The company is AS9100:2004,  ISO 9001-2008 and ISO 13485 certified, IPC class II and III, and J-STD certified as well as being ITAR registered and lead-free RoHS compliant.
