ESSEMTEC to Premier FLX2011 to North American Industry at IPC Midwest 2008

Sep 12, 2008

Essemtec, a leading manufacturer of surface mount technology production equipment, announces that it will introduce its multifunctional FLX2011 Flexible Pick-and-Place System to the North American market in booth 907 at the upcoming IPC Midwest Exhibition & Conference, scheduled to take place September 24-25, 2008 in Schaumburg, IL.

The FLX2011 pick-and-place series fulfills the requirements of a high-mix SMT production and features 01005 chip placement capabilities. It also offers a large application range, allows production changes without downtime and features 5X higher resolution of the measurement system over the competition.

FLX2011 is available in a standard size with a feeder capacity up to 190 feeders, and as a large model and with or without conveyor systems and a capacity up to 310 feeders. The board size for both machines is 400 x 300 mm. Featuring the smallest footprint, the FLX 2011 is the most flexible machine on the market.

It can be expanded to an FLX2021 or FLX2031 system for higher speed and feeder capacity. Additionally, it provides 20 percent improved speed over its predecessor, the FLX2010.

In a high-mix production, changeover is the most important cost factor. With the FLX concept, changeover cost and time are minimized. Offline production preparation and programming in combination with intelligent feeders and a very large feeder capacity allow a product changeover with no downtime, resulting in tremendous cost benefits.

The unique "virtual-view function" allows test and correction of a program without placing a component. Easyplacer, the system's operation software, is a key factor for the machine's flexibility. The powerful Windows-based software features a full graphic interface, making operation and programming easy. Also, with Easyplacer, the user always has control over the machine's status, the feeders and the components. The software is continuously updated and improved in cooperation with the customer. Additionally, the Internet-based remote maintenance system facilitates short problem solving time and saves traveling expenses for experts.
