Swiss-made SMD Production Machines For Mexico
Essemtec will exhibit highly flexible equipment at Mexitrónica 2010.
Essemtec will introduce top-quality SMT production equipment for highly flexible production at the upcoming Mexitrónica exhibition, which will take place October 5-7, 2010, in Guadalajara, Mexico. The Swiss company Essemtec is a true turnkey supplier that provides machines and know-how from one source for all production processes.
High changeover frequency in SMT production requires equipment that minimizes changeover time and maximizes changeover security and quality. Machines from Essemtec Switzerland are known worldwide as the best choice for such cases.
Essemtec is a real turnkey supplier and offers machines for all SMT assembly processes together with know-how and support: Printers, dispensers, pick-and-place machines, reflow and curing systems. The portfolio also includes units for handling, inspection and storage, and software for production planning, optimization, management and traceability. At the upcoming Mexitrónica exhibition in Guadalajara, Essemtec will exhibit a selection of machines optimized for small to mid-size production. Two systems that will be highlighted include PANTERA-XV and EXPERT.
The PANTERA-XV automatic SMD pick-and-place often is chosen for highly flexible, mid-size volume production. It reaches an assembly speed of 4500 components per hour. The machine features optical laser and vision centring and, thus, can place all SMD components from 0201 up to 50x50 mm. Its high feeder capacity enables many standard components to be installed, reducing changeover effort to only the specific ones. Intelligent feeders with automatic detection make changeover simple and secure.
The EXPERT SMD pick-and-place is popular in SMT prototyping and small batch manufacturing. It does not require any programming, permitting quick production of prototype PCBs. Additionally, optical aids are available for small components, fine pitch and BGA, allowing operators to place them with the same precision as an automatic machine would. For larger series, the EXPERT is available as a semiautomatic model with software guidance and control.
Essemtec also will exhibit printers and reflow solutions. To see the full range of solutions, visit Essemtec at its booth at Mexitrónica in Guadalajara, from October 5-7, 2010.
