Europlacer to Showcase Flexys-10 Intelligent Placement System at APEX 2009

Mar 20, 2009

APEX, NC - March 2009 - Europlacer, a designer and manufacturer of comprehensive SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry, announces that it will exhibit the Flexys-10 intelligent placement system in booth 473 at the upcoming APEX 2009 Conference & Exhibition that is scheduled to take place March 31-April 2, 2009 in Las Vegas.

Combining all around capability with outstanding value for money, the Flexys-10 is perfect for low- to medium-volume high-mix production and NPI requirements. Rated at a significant 10,000 cph and placing 0201s to the largest QFPs on the market, the system incorporates a high level of flexibility rarely found in low-cost solutions. Additionally, the system offers users eight new turret positions, over the previous generation's four turret positions.

The improved eight-position rotary head with on-the-fly vision helps to maintain high throughput even for boards with a wide range of components. With a feeder capacity of 128 x 8 mm tapes + 10 Matrix Tray locations, the machine uses Europlacer's innovative intelligent feeder technology, simplifying changeover and maximizing productivity.

The Flexys-10 placement system features numerous key benefits including a significant protection of investment, intelligent feeder technology, �smart� nozzles and more. Most significantly, the price of this new system is the same as its predecessor, the Flexys-8. This provides the industry with a very affordable and flexible entry-level system.

Offering users a speed of 10,000 cph (IPC: 8,600 cph) and component range of 0201 to 2.75" sq QFP/BGA, Flexys-10 has an accuracy of 0.0014" for QFP/BGA and 0.0035" for chips at 3 Sigma. Additionally, the system features a minimum pitch of 0.012" and a tape size range of 8 to 88 mm. The system can easily accommodate tape, stick or tray feeder types.

Various options are also available for the system: standalone or in-line conveyors, intelligent belt feeders, intelligent vibratory feeders, intelligent internal matrix tray, intelligent matrix tray sequencer, offline storage trolley, barcode reader, glue dispenser, fixed upward vision camera, component test verification, software, and more.

About Europlacer

Europlacer has been developing machines for electronics assembly since the 1970s and invented the intelligent feeder concept in the 1980s.�After acquisition by Blakell Europlacer in 1991, the company moved away from split-axis to the inherently more capable X-Y architecture that underpins the company's machines today.�Europlacer's policy has been to ensure wherever possible that technology purchased many years ago, especially feeders, remain compatible with the latest equipment. Europlacer designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of highly flexible SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry.
