Original Press Release:
New 'Expert' makes light work of your difficult prototyping and low volume assembly jobs, even those that include BGAs, CSPs and fine pitch parts
Today's prototyping and small batch assembly demands a new level of sophistication from semi-automatic placers. The advent of BGAs, CSPs and ultra-fine pitch devices requires shops to increase their precision and accuracy. Enter the Expert FPSA-BGA, one of the most advanced, versatile, and precise semi-automatic assembly stations available. Expert FPSA-BGA features two heads and two vision systems, one with a glass prism for fine pitch parts and the other with split-vision for ball grid array packages. After alignment has been achieved, automatic
mounting of the component guarantees exact placements. Programming time is drastically reduced thanks to the software's universal CAD conversion feature. Reality-based graphics allow the operator to double-check placement programming at a glance prior to assembly. Then, the program sequence is shown onscreen, step-by-step, to eliminate mistakes and produce high quality assemblies. This is a real advantage for critical military and aerospace applications. But many potential users of the FPSA-BGA will be contractors and OEMs who have need for a small-volume high-mix machine that can produce to IPC Class 3 specifications. Expert FPSA-BGA is $31,995.
