How to stop components moving on nozzle | 20 April, 2018

Hey everyone,

Ive recently discovered a problem where components picked are moving on a nozzle during the vision scan. Pick and Place being used is an iPulse M7-3L. When the scan camera scans across the components, the components are shifting on the nozzle. Repeat this enough times and the component falls off.

Ive tried this with even the slowest scan speed with the same result. It seems the turbulence or vibration from the scan causes the component to shift off center on the nozzle. Any recommendations to overcome this?

Thanks

Have you tried using a larger nozzle? If the selected nozzle is too small, it won't provide enough force to hold the part in place.

What kind of part are you having trouble with?

This one should be easy. 1. Check your nozzle - make sure you use the right nozzle and the nozzle tip is not damaged in any way. 2. Vacuum suction going to the nozzle should be measured/checked.

And if it is a hard rubber nozzle for a large IC make sure it is still pliable. And solder paste isn't stuck up the end of your nozzle
