AdoptSMT will show at the SMT show 2015 in Nuremberg, Hall A7-100, a further addition to their range of Premium Parts: A self-designed replacement nozzle magazine for Siplace collect and place machines.
Already for one year AdoptSMT has been offering the repair of original Nozzle Magazines by replacing the plastic shutter with a robust shutter made from anodized Aluminium. A four digit number of repairs have already been performed, which resulted not only in savings for the customers but also in a large reduction of waste.
Because in addition customers had also bought a three digit number of new nozzle magazines with Aluminium Shutter for a higher price, AdoptSMT was looking for a method to supply such magazines without having to replace new plastic shutters which are turned to waste this way. In order to also fulfil the other wishes – to have longer lasting nozzle garages and centering holes – it was necessary to move away from single improvements to the approach of designing a completely new magazine.
This new magazine is now manufactured with a hardened base plate and a non-moving top plate with complete round holes as nozzle garages, in which the nozzles sit securely. In addition the nozzles are held in position by springs.
AdoptSMT is displaying in Hall 7, booth 7-100.
