Hello, I use Siemens MS128 & HS180. I need to place a lot of TO-252AA, SOT223, ... components. At the moment I use only mechanical centering but I want to center these components opticaly. There is no problem to center chips and other symetrical com

On machines such as MyDatas you have the ability to mechanically center parts rather than optically centering. If your machine is capable of doing mechanical centering that would eliminate the need for the vision analysis. -Joe

Quad Systems sells the Samsung product with Quad's patented QuadAlign optics system and Quad feeders as opposed to the mechanical centering system available on the product direct from Samsung. Generally, all optical centering is superior to mechanic

Dude - check the centering jaws as well. If they're off a bit it'll do this as well. Is it just mechanically centered parts, or optically centered parts also?

What type of Mydata is this ? TP or My series ? Optical or Mechanical centering ? How many hours are on the machine ?

MyData DPak not placing

Usually the reason it will fail a part like that when you are using mechanical centering is because the part is usually picked so off center because of the body shape. So when the centering jaws close to push the part to center they give up and fail

MyData TP9-UFP : Optical Centering Calibration Question

Are you able to turn off mechanical centering? Or can you adjust the settings?

Mydata TP9-2 and TP11-UFP difference

The UFP was a designation for "ultra-fine-pitch"; but, for the most part, you should be able to get the same placements out of both machines. Anything 0402 or above can be mechanically centered. The UFP machine will lean on optical centering for .5

If it were my money and I had your specifications to achive, I would go Mydata. One platform, chip shooter, optical centering, mechanical centering, electrical verification (that works)smart feeders that work, etc.... I have worked on several platfor

Typical placement speeds - please advise

I've primarily used MyData equipment, personally, and, optically centered devices definitely take longer than mechanically centered parts on a MyData, owing to the construction of the machine. With a fixed upward looking camera, the head has to pick
