ESSEMTEC to Display EXPERT-SAFP Prototyping Station at APEX 2008

Mar 20, 2008

Essemtec, a leading manufacturer of surface mount technology production equipment, announces that it will showcase EXPERT-SAFP universal prototyping station in booth 501 at the upcoming APEX 2008 exhibition and conference, scheduled to take place April 1-3, 2008, in Las Vegas.

Small batches and prototypes of assembled SMD boards can be mounted quickly and accurately using the Essemtec's EXPERT-SAFP semi-automatic pick-and-place system. The pick-and-place head is air suspended, and moves gently and ergonomically, allowing fast and accurate work.

When the component structure moves to fine-pitch or if a manual alignment is not possible (BGA, microBGA, flip chip), the integrated vision and placement system MPL3100 can help. Its double prisma optical system can display the component and the substrate overlay on one screen. Alignment and placement is then easy and the large zoom range of the optic enables a highly accurate result.

The EXPERT-SAFP placement system is perfectly suited for prototyping because it allows components to be picked from both reels and sticks, and from rest tape strips as well as loose components. A turning station for upside down components standard on the system.

Because fast and precise placement is also a basic requirement in small batch manufacturing, the EXPERT placement system can be connected with computer controls and works in a semi-automatic mode. Placement data can be converted directly from the CAD file or thought point by point. The Windows control software increases productivity - in some cases, it even doubles it - and ensures that the correct component is correctly aligned at the desired place without errors.

The EXPERT placement system is available as a complete prototyping station, including a dispenser and a reflow tool.


Essemtec is a worldwide leader in the manufacturer of Surface Mount Technology (SMT) production equipment. Essemtec specializes in high mix production equipment for Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) using Surface Mount Technology.
