The latest in SMT pick and place high volume machines

- Advertisement -

Monday, March 10, 2014: The heart of the SMT assembly process, a pick and place machine, is an expensive piece of equipment. Buyers need to plan very carefully prior to making a purchase, as there is a wide choice available.However, not too many companies make high-volume pick and place machines. Hence, only a few machines were launched in 2013, despite the presence of major companies in the global market.

Model: M20, Brand: I-Pulse, Manufacturer: Yamaha Motor Co Ltd, Japan

yamahaUpgraded in January 2014, the M20 is a true multi-mounter pick and place machine, which can place any type and size of SMD and odd-sized through-hole component, dispense solder paste and glue, apply flux and place bare die components from the waffle tray. It can do component inspection after placement and can handle long LED boards of up to 1800×600 mm.

Model: ONYX 21, Brand: ZEVAC, Manufacturer: ZEVAC AG, Switzerland

zevacLaunched in October 2013, ONYX 21 has been designed according to application requirements in a compact machine design that doesn’t compromise on the functionality. It offers force measurement, strong top and bottom heating, nitrogen connection and modularity as standard features. The pre-heater 300×300 mm offers powerful 3500 W for bottom heating and 2000 W for top heating. It is suitable for higher temperatures and exact temperature profiling for lead-free applications. The Z-axis is motorised and places the component automatically with force in the gramme range onto the board to protect sensitive components. With the optional board cooling feature, the cycle time can be reduced to a minimum, and the temperature profile does meet the requirements even of sophisticated applications.

Key features

  • Motorised vision and Z-axis, closed loop motion control

  • Compact, stable design for smaller boards, but also capable of handling boards up to 300 mm×400 mm

  • Strong top and bottom heating: 2000 W top side heater; 3500 W 300×300 mm bottom side preheating

  • The board cooling option aids lead-free soldering and faster process times

  • External site solder cleaning system: This optional feature helps in redressing the site after the component is removed

  • Closed loop airflow control
