AX-301 / AX-501 SMT Pick & Place System Description:

Scalable Output - High first pass yield – Multifunctional - Flexible

With software optimizing factory processes efficiently, the AX-301 and AX-501 can simply be blended within your factory. The truly modular single sided concept simplifies use and offers complete control and overview from one side only in any product mix or volume environment.

With up to 156 (AX-301) or 260 (AX-501) tape feeding positions and up to 30 tray positions, the machines can be configured and re-configured in small steps from 30K to 77K (AX-301) or 121K (AX-501) components per hour to suit your exact capacity requirements without under or overspending. The true parallel placement robot delivers exceptionally high first pass yields and line performance in the single-digit defects per million range.

Placement performance benefits of true parallel placement

All equipment capable of performing in a high speed line should be designed to place more than a trillion components every year, year after year. The AX is - by concept - optimizes control of each and every placement for the highest first-pass yield in the industry. It minimizes the costs associated with repair and possible scrapping. In addition, the high quality of your manufactured product assures end-user satisfaction, with minimal warranty recalls by the final consumer.

The A-Series allows single sided operation, multiple feeding positions, fast changeover, offline aids, and has software to create family or cluster setups. That makes it excellent equipment not just for high speed environments, but for any production environment of any mix.

  • Conceptually smooth machine movement: low maintenance, reliable component handling and a continuous basis for accuracy, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Fully software controlled service-driven Pick and Place cycle: controlled pick, optimum acceleration and deceleration process and controlled placement.
  • Constant component monitoring from pick to place with on-the-fly laser alignment guarantees the component is present and placed at the correct angle for the highest placement accuracy.
  • Accurate placement force control: correct placement of components in paste, prevention of damage of the smallest (01005) components.
  • Fewer than 10 defects per million placement performance (proven!).
  • High resolution laser alignment for placement accuracy of 40 micron, even for very small components like 01005 types.
  • Parallel robots can be added or removed in order to increase or decrease output without altering the line footprint.

A-Series Pick & Place Series

The A-Series SMT Pick & Place Systems is a solution for medium and large batch production, also in high product mix environments. Three compatible machines (AX-201, AX-301 and AX-501) place complex and odd-form components with high accuracy. Line performance offers single-digit defects per million at placement rates of between 11k and 165k components per hour.

The A-Series uses nozzles and grippers that individually can pick and place a large range of component types, reducing unnecessary exchange times. Custom nozzles and grippers are also available on request. The A-Series machines automatically change the nozzles if required.
