Essemtec, a leading manufacturer of surface mount technology (SMT) production equipment, announces that it will highlight Paraquda, its industry-leading, flexible, Swiss-made pick-and-place solution in Booth #520 at the upcoming SMTA International Conference & Exhibition, scheduled to take place October 16-17, 2012 at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel in Orlando, FL.
The Paraquda 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. At only $79,000 installed, 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.
