Universal Introduces New Scalable Automation Platform
Binghamton, NY: Precision handling and placement specialist Universal Instruments is utilizing the Assembly Technology Expo to unveil its latest addition to the Polaris Assembly Cell family. As the name suggests, Polaris Jr. is focused on the lower end of robotic and non-robotic assembly processes.
Building upon the success of Polaris Servo Gripper for odd form component assembly and Polaris Multi-Process for combined final assembly operations, Polaris Jr. offers single process final assembly automation. These processes include dispensing,
screwdriving, and pick and place packaged onto a standardized tool interface and utilizing a pre-existing selection of over 20 tool modules. Universal's platform concept has been applied to Polaris Jr. in a unique way to allow cell sizes from 500 mm up to 2.5 meters while using common structure and controls. The benefit to the end-customer is the economy of scale and faster lead time of a standard machine versus complete custom cells.
"Responding to feedback from our customers in automation, we've developed a scalable platform that delivers just the right amount of functionality for a customers' specific requirements," said Adam R. Brown, Product Manager of Universal's Odd Form and Final Assembly Division.
Polaris Jr. complements Universal's product offering for electronics assembly equipment and enables it to deliver an entire system from board assembly to final assembly automation and packaging.
Also on display will be the AdVantis mid range surface mount placement platform and the GSM Genesis for high speed chip placement, flexible fine pitch and end of line processes.
Universal can be seen on booth # 15032 at ATExpo, September 23 - 25 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center Rosemont, IL.
Universal Instruments is a global electronics productivity specialist, providing innovative circuit, semiconductor and back-end assembly technologies and equipment, integrated system solutions, and process expertise to manufacturers in every sector of the electronics industry.
