2845 Terwood Rd.
Willow Grove, PA, 19090
Press release date: August 17, 2012
Bring prototyping, short run and low volume printed circuit board assembly jobs-even those requiring considerable placement accuracy and precision-in-house with the new MC-400 benchtop pick & place machine from Manncorp. Also suited to design houses and contract manufacturers who are looking to offer first article approval and small batch production to their customers, MC-400 offers the quality build and features of Manncorp's full-sized MC-series machines at a more affordable price point.
Component range & accuracy
A combination of on-the-fly and stationary Cognex®-based alignment systems ensure accurate placement of 0201s through 100 x 150 mm SMDs, including BGAs, CSPs, flip chips, QFPs, odd-form components, and ultra-fine-pitch parts to 15 mil.
With the MC-400's AC servo motion control and linear encoders, placement rates of 2,500 cph (IPC 9850) can be reached with ±0.05 mm placement accuracy and ±0.01 mm repeatability.
Flexible feeder options
Components can be picked from tape reel, cut strip tapes, sticks and waffle trays. Nine possible feeder configurations can be viewed on the product's web page at www.manncorp.com/pick-and-place/mc400/ MC-400's time-saving, error-proofing Smart Feeders are interchangeable with all other MC-series pick & place machines.
MC-400 uses the full MC-series software, with expandable component library, universal CAD data import, teach-in programming, and Virtual PCB Simulation for program verification. Programs are portable between MC-series machines, allowing manufacturers to move from prototyping to high-volume production without reprogramming.
Fully supported by Manncorp
Remote service and support are included, along with a two-year parts warranty. Installation and onsite-training, provided by Manncorp's own technicians, most of whom have been with the company for over a decade, are available to get the MC-400 up and running for your specific needs as quickly and smoothly as possible.
