The new SIPLACE SX allows placement performance to be added to a line without influencing feeder capacity or line layout. Capacity can also be easily moved from one line to another, and feeder capacity can be added without the cost of adding an entire new machine. Sales Engineer Luis Garcia stated: “Some of my customers are running SIPLACE machines that have done more than 2 billion component placements and are still accurate and reliable. The SX will allow customers to replace multiple older lines with just one new SIPLACE line, delivering the same output and long term accuracy they expect.”
Right First Time Manufacturing
The SIPLACE Team also demonstrated their complete set of offline tools that ensure ‘Right First Time Manufacturing’. The software tools enable programmers to make a ‘virtual build’ of a customer board and de-bug it offline, eliminating scrap or wasted machine time during an NPI. The SIPLACE Vision Teach Station has the same powerful component shape recognition features as on the machine, but allows operators to program the component offline. SIPLACE Set up Center ensures that the correct components are always placed on the board, but with increased time savings by performing the entire process completely offline.
