Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronic manufacturing services to OEMs, has installed an Assembléon AX-501 pick-and-place system with a 47 Tray TEM unit at its Orem, Utah facility.
With the implementation of the AX-501, 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.
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 25 μm, 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.
“This is the second system of its kind deployed by Computrol within the last 12 months. Computrol realized significant improvements in cycle time, placement accuracy, overall DPM and changeover time, all of which made the decision to deploy a second system much easier,” stated Farid Anani, Computrol’s Manufacturing Manager. “Assembléon continues to be a true partner by providing fast and accurate technical support as needed. We look forward to continued growth and success with this platform. We are confident that we will continue to provide our customers with the highest quality and greatest degree of turnaround time and flexibility.”
Computrol now houses two AX-501 systems – one at its Meridian, Idaho plant and one at its Orem, Utah facility. Both facilities are AS9100:2004, ISO 9001-2008 and ISO 13485, IPC class II and III and J-STD certified as well as being ITAR registered and lead-free RoHS compliant.
