Interchangeable SX gantries make performance scaling easy. The SIPLACE SX, the SIPLACE MultiStar CPP head and flexible services such as SIPLACE Rent-a-Gantry, all of which are being premiered at this year’s Productronica, deliver unprecedented line scalability and offer electronics manufacturers an unprecedented amount of freedom to organize their production processes in an order-oriented manner. The SIPLACE SX features unique exchangeable gantries, which can be installed or uninstalled by a single person in less than 30 minutes. Thanks to these gantries, users can increase or decrease the placement capacity of their SMT lines and shift performance between lines in accordance with their specific order requirements. Since the SX gantries calibrate themselves and the software recognizes them automatically and adjusts the placement programs accordingly, adapting one's production to short term order fluctuations or introducing new products is now easier and faster than ever before.
