Our MPM Up2000 HIE is having a communication problem with any upstream machine we place in front of it...i.e. conveyor, board loader, etc. It all started when we removed a conveyor from inbetween it and a board loader, and hooked those machines up di

Thanks for that info... I found out that MPM has UP2000 HiE VP with price lower than DEK Horizon but just a bit higher or let's say relatively the same as DEK ELA...I find it hard to decide which among the 2 based on our budget capability. My budget

I really would not compare the 2 systems. A ELA is more like MPM's UP-1500. The UP-2000 is more like the DEK Horizon or Infinity. You just opened up one of the great debates of the SMT world. MPM or DEK? You will have people on both sides defend the

There is a new tooling invention called the Instant Fixture System. It is a mechanical "cartridge" style dense pin-array system. There is a kit for MPM-UP 2000, and AP Series, and also for DEK-265 platforms. This instant fixture system offers very

Quick Change Tooling is one advantage for DEK when comparing the MPM UP2000. DEK has Form Flex. Good system, but I've heard concerns about long term dependabilty. All support tooling options offered on the UP2000 takes a bit of time to set up. So, If

We had one of the crap UP3000's. However it was still better than a 265. If you don't need the extra large board size look for an AP2* or a HiE, especially if you are looking at using paste inspection.

We've always been MpM so no comparison from me on DEK. All I can say is we have had 3000 series that seemed to need constant attention and almost daily wrenching. We got a couple of AP25 HiE's and they are easier to use, way more reliable and simpl
