Essemtec starts the year 2009 with new product
Press release, January, 15, 2009
The new SMD pick & place machine CSM7200 from Essemtec is perfect for the entrance into the fully automatic SMD placement and is especially suitable for the flexible manufacturing of small lot series. The machine fabricates all current components up to 40x40 mm and additionally offers an integrated dispensing system for glue or solder paste. The graphical user surface makes the controlling and programming simple. If at a later time more placement capacity will be necessary so the investment protection program from Essemtec makes the change over easy.
The new pick & place machine CSM7200 is a further development of the successful CSM7100. In comparison to the previous model the CSM7200 offers an up to 30% higher camera resolution and precision, a larger component area and more vacuum tools. Additional functions had been implemented, as for example the automatic pick-up height calibration with vacuum censor or the integrated component counter which observes the supplies.
Up to 100 components can be upgraded on the CSM7200 simultaneously. The feeders are intelligent and motive driven. This stands for quick and safe change over as the position of the feeder will be identified automatically and the feed is programmable. The components can be programmed to the feeders by bar code reader; by this mistakes at the change over are excluded.
For simple programming the CSM7200 is equipped with a universal CAD interface by which the placing data can be taken over out of the layout programs directly. Changes of programme are simple, thanks to the virtual-view function: The placement programme will overlay the life camera picture. Components can be added, shifted or deleted by a mouse click.
For the exact placement of the single components a laser measuring system is used. By the “On-the-fly” measuring of the components placing capacities of up to 4’000 Bt./h are possible. For QFP- or BGA- components an X-vision system is available. This inspects the mostly expensive components and their connections complete before placing.
Attractive extras are summarized in the Flex-2-services programme of Essemtec. To it belongs, for example, the distant service system, the internet platform MyEssemtec.com or the 24 hour hotline support. Just for newcomers and start ups the financing solutions and the investment protection programme are very attractive. If the production capacity of the CSM7200 is no longer enough Essemtec makes the change over to a more sufficient system easier by a guaranteed repurchase price. As all pick & place machines of Essemtec are operating with the same software all data can be taken over at a change over.
