New compact pick-and-place with linear motors to be displayed at SMTA Guadalajara
Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, today announced plans to exhibit at the SMTA Guadalajara Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Oct. 5-6, 2016 at Hotel Riu Guadalajara. The new FOX Compact Pick-and-Place Machine is the first machine in its class with linear motors and a mineral cast frame, providing exceptional speed, stability and accuracy, and making it perfectly suited for use in small production environments.
FOX measures only 88cm x 109cm and it can accept PCBs up to 406mm x 305mm. Components with sizes from 0201 (imperial) up to 33x80mm can be placed, optionally up to 80x80mm. It places 4500 cph (IPC9850A) with accuracy of 50 µm @ 3σ.
Essemtec’s FOX can be fitted with a dispense valve for SMD glue or solder paste for hassle-free manufacturing of 2.5D assemblies. FOX also features Essemtec’s award-winning software ePlace found on the Paraquda, Cobra and Scorpion platforms.
