The cornerstone of the 2500-MV is the MC-400 pick and place system, featuring Cognex on-the-fly and bottom vision alignment, for high-accuracy, 2500 CPH placement of a wide range of advanced SMDs—from 0201 chip components to BGAs and 15 mil ultra-fine-pitch devices. The MC-400 has the capacity for up to 64 automatic “smart” tape feeders and can also accept a wide variety of stick, cut-strip, and IC tray holders. Built upon the same architecture as Manncorp’s popular MC Series of SMT pick and place machines, MC-400 feeders and software are compatible with all other MC series equipment.
The 2500-MV includes the heavy-duty MC-110 stencil printer—the industry’s most robust, highest-precision, manual printer with a repeatability of 0.02 mm (less than 1 mil). Its universal mounting bracket allows clamping or screw mounting of frames up to 740 mm x 740 mm (29” x 29”) and tool-free, self-locking, X-Y-Z and theta axis adjustments provide quick and easy stencil to pad alignment.
The MC-301 profilable batch reflow oven rounds out the 2500-MV and simulates the performance of an inline system in a compact benchtop design. Through its innovative user interface and Android operating system, preheat, soak, reflow, and cooling stages are easily programmed to conform to component and paste manufacturer’s precise specifications. For process control and traceability, solder profiles are easily saved and distributed via built-in WiFi.
