MYDATA Introduces Agilis Flex Feeders, Taking Electronics Assembly To Next Level

MYDATA is introducing a new Agilis Flex feeder solution for larger components, which extends the reach of its proprietary Agilis feeder technology. The modular concept now covers any component on tape or stick and cuts loading and unloading times to a fraction of that of conventional feeders. Agilis Flex feeders are capable of handling component tapes of up to 152 mm in width.

The Agilis story continues

Introduced to the electronics industry a decade ago, the Agilis feeder solution rapidly gained a following among MYDATA users thanks to its ability to offer ultra fast feeder loading and kitting, which translates into substantial time savings in setups and changeovers. As the system gives each feeder a unique identity, it also enables the recognition of the presence, absence or location of components, thus helping keep track of inventory. With the Agilis solution, machine positions for feeders are interchangeable since the operating software automatically recognizes the new position and re-optimizes the mount program accordingly.

Timesaving of 2,000 hours a year or more

According to MYDATA, using the Agilis solution can produce significant timesaving and help electronic manufacturers to boost productivity. For example, in an assembly plant, where 500 feeders are loaded and unloaded per day, a time saving of 30 seconds per feeder operation would result in a saving of 40 hours a week with Agilis feeders. This adds up to approximately 2,000 working hours a year, or the equivalent of one full-time plant operator - whose time and energy could be used for more value-adding tasks.

A new member to the Agilis family

"The new Agilis Flex is a welcome new member to our feeder family which features our signature ability to scan, trace and interchange feeders," says Simon Sandgren, Marketing Director at MYDATA. "Our entire feeder system is so adaptable that you can mix and match single feeders or replace all your feeders at once – depending on how you work. Now, with the new Agilis Flex, you can handle tape components of nearly any size and pocket depth," he adds.

From 8 to 152 mm in width

Scheduled to be launched at Productronica in Munich, Germany (November 15-18, Booth A3 340), the Agilis Flex feeder system is a robust design that makes it possible to handle any component on tape, from 8 to 152 mm in width, with pocket depths that accommodate even the thickets, tallest components. The new feeder system with its built-in intelligence will help MYDATA users to improve manufacturing efficiency by taking setups and changeovers to the next level. In short, the new Agilis Flex is the ideal solution to help customers accelerate their success by becoming even faster, smarter and more agile.
