Stick feeders supply whole component sticks to the semi- automatic Pick&Placer. Thus sensitive parts dont have to be needlessly decanted. You can enable a single or multiple components for current assembly.
By using a manual carousel bulk components can be supplied to the machine. For varying projects, multiple carousels can be prepared, which can be kitted in a single step.
The patented bulk containers provide resistors, capacitors and ICs out of small containers to the machine. These containers can be pooled using a rail-system, so that a variety of ocmponents can be stored dust-free for assembly.
This feeder type can handle a single strip of a component tape. Each part can be picked up directly from the tape, it isn’t necessary to decante them into bulk containers first.
Fine-Pitch parts, BGAs or plugs are mostly delivered in trays. This packaging unit can be supplied directly at the manipulator. A safe assembly process is guaranteed using the Fine-Pitch function in combination with the X / Y – axis fixation and an optional motor-driven component-lowering (FP 904).
By using tape-strip feeders, sections of a tape can be feeded into the Pick&Place machines. This feeder combines different width of strips and makes it possible to supply small amounts of different component models i.e. for prototype assemblies.
Automatic carousel / paternoster
This automatic feeding types can carry up to 504 component models at once. The required part is transported to a fixed pickup position using the PC software. This position is shown using the integrated LEDs.
Both systems also can be driven manually with a foot pedal. Automatic feeders are useful in combination with the SM 902 system.
