Assembly System places 21,000 cph with ±50 µm accuracy.
February 28, 2007 -
Designed to handle boards up to 20 x 24 in., Series SM321XLB can place QFPs and BGAs at speeds up to 5,500 cph with ±30 µm accuracy. Low mass head mechanism with high-speed motor delivers stable motion platform for consistent, on-target placements, while ultraflat handling system safely moves large PCBs and thin, flexible substrates. Series SM321XLB is configured for Samsung SM Series tape feeder system, which handles industry standard EIA 481 tape sizes.

Samsung Midrange SM321XLB BreaksThe Barrier
Dynatech Technology Brings SM321XLB Advanced Flexible Assembler to North America
Los Angeles, CA February 20, 2007 - Samsung has broken the speed barrier for mid-range production systems with the SM321 Series. Placing 21,000 CPH with ±50µm accuracy, based on the IPC 9850 parameters, the SM321XLB reaches a new high for systems in its class. QFP and BGA's are placed at speeds up to 5,500 CPH at ±30µm accuracy. The SM321XLB handles boards up to 20" x 24" at production speeds thanks to the next generation high resolution flying vision system and enhanced board handling capabilities.
"The new SM321XLB builds on Samsung's SM Series SMT equipment with a host of enhancements designed to improve our customer's ability to build quality product. Board assemblers can build large and small boards on the same line thanks to the SM321XLB's ability to handle large boards at 21,000 CPH," said Mike Foster, General Manager, Dynatech Technology. "The SM321XLB fits perfectly into existing and new SMT lines where board size and speed are needed in a flexible line that can increase production yields with an acceptable capital investment."
Continuing the design philosophy of the SM Series, the SM321XLB includes a low mass head mechanism with high speed motor to deliver a stable motion platform for consistent, on-target placements. The board transport system features an enhanced drive system with ultra flat handling system that safely moves large PCBs and thin, flexible substrates.
The SM321XLB is configured for Samsung SM Series slim format tape feeder system, which is designed and built to handle industry standard EIA 481 tape sizes, holds a maximum of 120 8mm feeders. The tape feeder monitors the inventory on its supply reel, allowing it to notify the operator before replenishment is needed. A one-touch clamping feature allows users to replace tape feeders during operations to maximize productivity, while the system's endless-discharge method for non-stop operation provides efficiency, reliability and repeatability of component pickups. Operators can choose to splice a new reel of components to the existing feeder without interrupting production. The SM feeder is available in both standard and Intelligent (IT) Feeder System configurations.
The Intelligent (IT) Feeder System adds complete lot tracking and inventory management capabilities to the SM321XLB platform. Critical parts management and tracking from the stock room to loading and placing feeders on the table are under the control of a unified management system to avoid costly errors. IT Feeders are assigned a unique identity based on which components are loaded onto the feeder. The IT system then ensures that the correct part is loaded in the assigned feeder slot in the active inventory on the SM321XLB base.
Built-in Optimizer software ensures high-efficiency machine operation by automatically optimizing the placement sequence. The optional EasyOLP line balancing software increases overall line productivity by balancing feeders across multiple assembly system while optimizing placement routines.
