Pick and place machines

18 February 2008


Recently displayed at the Virtual PCB trade show, Assembléon, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Royal Philips Electronics, demonstrated its MG-1R and MG-8R pick and place machines with improved maintainability and reliability to reduce lifetime costs.

In addition, the maximum board size has been increased to 510 x 440mm, whilst the operating panel, LCD monitor and keyboard have been relocated to improve ergonomics. Prices remain unchanged after these improvements.

The MG-1R and MG-8R machines are for high-mix production, and place a wide range of components including chips as well as complex and odd-form components. That enables the machines to be broadly used as stand-alone and in-line solutions for industrial, consumer, automotive and other industries. Furthermore, placement rates are up to 24,000 components per hour. A 3D co-planarity camera and a side view camera help eliminate placement defects and high-resolution vision systems recognise, dip-flux, and place even the smallest balls and tightest-pitch flip-chips.
