Essemtec's Semiautomatic SMT Prototyping System

Nov 24, 2008

Small batches and prototypes of SMD assembled boards can be mounted quickly and accurately using the Essemtec pick-and-place system EXPERT-SAFP. Layout data and the bill of material can be imported directly into the machine, which guides the operator through the placement program. The pick-and-place head is air suspended, moves gently and is ergonomic, allowing for fast and accurate work.

Fast and error-free placement also is a basic requirement in small batch manufacturing; therefore, the EXPERT-SAFP placement system can be connected with a computer control to work in a semi-automatic mode. Placement data can be converted directly from the CAD file or can be thought point by point. The Windows control software increases the productivity in some cases even doubles it and ensures that the correct component is correctly aligned at the desired location without errors.

The EXPERT-SAFP placement system is perfectly suited for prototyping because it allows not only picking of components from reels and sticks but also from rest tape strips and loose components. A turning station for upside down components is a standard. Additionally, the placement system is available as a complete prototyping station, including a dispenser and a reflow tool.

When the component structures get to fine or if a manual alignment is impossible (BGA, microBGA, flip chip), then the integrated vision and placement system MPL3100 can help. Its double prisma optical system can display the component and the substrate overlaid on one screen. Alignment and placement is easy and the large zoom range of the optic enables a highly accurate result.

With this machine, users also have access to Essemtec's remote maintenance system and to the MyEssemtec.com user portal on the Internet. Additionally, Essemtec's Flex2-Services program offers attractive solutions for financing and service.
