Nov 04, 2007

DORSET, UNITED KINGDOM - November 2, 2007 - Europlacer, a designer and manufacturer of comprehensive SMT placement systems for the global electronics industry, announces that it will display the Xpress 25 flexible high-volume SMT placement system in booth A4-125 at the upcoming Productronica 2007 exhibition and conference scheduled to take place November 13-16, 2007 at the New Munich Trade Fair Center in Munich, Germany.

Xpress 25 brings new vision to modular placement - combining high-speed and fine-pitch capabilities within a remarkably compact footprint. Unlike conventional high-end placers, the twin headed Xpress 25 can place a wide array of devices ranging from 0201 to 50 x 50 mm QFP (70 x 70 mm QFP and 100 mm connector optional) at a tact time of 0.144 sec (25,000 cph equivalent, IPC: 18,900 cph). Equipped with �smart nozzles� and on the fly vision, Xpress 25 gives users a genuine single machine solution.

The flexible placement system features numerous key benefits including a significant protection of investment, intelligent feeder technology, �smart� nozzles and more.

Offering users a feeder capacity of 92 x 8 mm and component range of 0201 to 50 x 50 mm standard (70 x 70 mm QFP as an option), Xpress 25 has an accuracy of �0.06 mm (QFP) to �0.1 mm (chip) at 4 sigma. Additionally, the system features a minimum pitch of 0.4 mm (with an 0.3 mm optional) and a tape size range of 8 to 88 mm.

Various options are also available for the system: intelligent tape feeders, intelligent tape trolley, intelligent belt feeders, intelligent vibratory feeders, intelligent internal matrix tray, intelligent matrix tray sequencer, passive tape trolley, offline storage trolley, component verification, barcode reader, fixed upward vision camera and software.
