Europlacer has chosen the China Productronica event to unveil the newest additions to its unparalleled atom range of surface mount pick & place systems. The show, running in Shanghai from 17th to 19th March, will introduce visitors to two highly innovative and intelligent new placement modules, the Europlacer ii-A1 and ii-A2. ​

Both new modules are designed to integrate seamlessly inline with other Europlacer platforms and both will boost placement productivity.

The versatile ii-A1 is an ultra-flexible module featuring a single Tornado turret head. It can be deployed for specific SMT assembly duties or as a fully featured module offering placement speeds up to 15,000cphto boost yields. ii-A1 provides an inventory capacity of 164 x 8mm feeder positions and two different types of internal matrix tray with up to 5 Jedec capacity to deliver Europlacer’s legendary flexibility for devices up to 99mm x 99mm dimensions.

Equipped with a pair of high-speed Pulsar pipette heads, the new ii-A2 module is designed as a chipshooter to take on workload duties from other Europlacer machines in the line, offering placement speeds up to 50,000cph for devices down to 01005 profiles. Like its sibling, it also offers a component inventory of 164 x 8mm feeder positions to deliver a fast, fully intelligent and highly integrated boost to line throughput.

Sharing the same robust chassis, the ii-A1 and ii-A2feature Europlacer’s patented intelligent conveyor with board stops under full software control and can handle boards over one meter (39 inches) in length despite the compact module format. And both are compatible with a broad range of options, including all Europlacer intelligent feeder technologies, available acrossall Europlacer placement platforms.

“We are very excited by the new modules, both as an innovative concept that fits the growth plans of many of our existing customers and as two vital new additions that expand our placement equipment range,” says François Erceau, Group Strategic Direction & Marketing Officer at Europlacer. “These new modules alsoextend our market reach. We firmly believe that the Europlacer placement range with its huge variety of intelligent options now offers customers in any volume sector a powerful and compelling productivity solution – and one that’s supported by our multi-award-winning customer service.”
