Essemtec, the leading Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronics, now offers a fully featured dispensing option for its Paraquda high-speed SMD pick-and-place system. The new option extends the placement machine’s application range: In addition to placing 15'000 components per hour, the Paraquda now can dispense up to 20,000 glue or paste dots per hour.

The dispensing option is mounted directly on the pick-and-place head and can be equipped with a time-pressure or a screw dispensing valve. The valve’s vertical motion is precisely controlled by a motor/encoder system and a high-resolution laser sensor regulates the distance between the dispensing needle and PCB.

The new dispensing option provides the Paraquda pick-and-place with all the features of a modern dispensing machine, including a needle height calibration station and a fully automatic needle cleaning system. For quick conversion between different dispensing valves, a fast exchange system is available.

The new dispenser option extends the Paraquda’s SMD placement capability with glue and paste dot dispensing, simplifying logistics because multiple assembly operations can be concentrated on a single machine. Additionally, the option can spare the investment for additional dispensing equipment, saving both money and space.


The Swiss machine manufacturer Essemtec is a market leader in manufacturing flexible production systems for industrial users. Essemtec has been developing, manufacturing and marketing equipment and machines for all processes in the electronics industry since 1991: printers, dispensers, pick-and-place and soldering systems.
