World’s First SMT Assembler with Integrated Solder Paste Jet Printer at SMTAI

Aug 27, 2014



Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, announces that it will highlight the Paraquda 2 with integrated solder paste jet printer in Booth #640 at SMTA International, scheduled to take place Sep. 30 - Oct. 1, 2014 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Essemtec has merged its dispensing and pick-and-place know-how from the Scorpion and Paraquda machines into a SMT production centre.

Paraquda combines two different production steps within one   platform (solder paste jetting and SMD assembly). The Paraquda meets all of the requirements of a modern, highly flexible production system: changeover without downtime, component management, and the integration of jet printing of solder paste or glue.

Jetting of solder paste instead of printing saves costs for stencils, eliminates printing errors and enhances production flexibility especially for lower to midsize volumes. Essemtec’s solder jet printer is fast (up to 80,000 dots/hr), very precise (51µm @3σ) and suitable for 0201 components. It opens the range of pastes to most common solder paste type 4, 5, 6 or 7. Essemtec’s solder paste jet valve can be installed on existing machines platforms, such as the Scorpion high-speed jet dispenser or the Paraquda component placer.  Production is fully automated, and solder paste application and component placement are seamlessly integrated while process monitoring ensures high-quality results.

The Paraquda 2 also will be highlighted in the Tech Tours on Tuesday, Sept. 30 from 3:30 – 5 p.m. and Wednesday, Oct. 1 from 12:30- 2 p.m. New to SMTA International, the Tech Tours present a unique opportunity to participate in a technology focused tour on the exhibit floor. These tours will showcase the latest technologies, equipment and solutions in a small group setting. Exhibiting partners will provide a demo, a short technology-based presentation or specific application support.
