The older generation "GSM" feeders will work fine on the multifunction variations of the AdVantis Platform, but will not physically work on the Lightning based AC30L. The AC30L uses a 42v feeder interface, while the MF versions have both the new 42v

The lightning head will place parts up to 30mm square but there is a height restriction and it will only pick from tape feeders, no trays, no vibes. It will put down QFP's at full speed and the placements are dead on. I think you need an optional p

I would agree up until 2005 - 2006. Universal did not have a good SMT solution. Their GSM's were limited and combined with the sanyo chip shooter - software was a nightmare. What years did you have universal?

Your vibe feeders will probably work fine. Using the old tape feeders on a Lighning head will limit the speed of the machine big time. I have not done it but I dont think its a good idea. We considered buying used feeders to offset the cost of our ne
