Hover-Davis Demonstrates New Radial, Tube, Tray, Label and Die-Cut Material Automation Solutions at IPC Apex Expo

Hover-Davis will demonstrate its new Radial, Tube and Tray feeders at the 20th IPC Apex Expo. Developed in partnership with Universal Instruments, these innovative feeders solve the packaging challenges of larger SMD and odd-form electronic components such as relays, connectors, capacitors, LEDs, and more. Originally proven on Universal’s Uflex™ and FuzionOF™ automation systems, the company’s new odd-form feeders are now available through Hover-Davis, with interface kits available for a wide range of automation system integration applications.

Hover-Davis will also demonstrate its expanded material automation solutions for labels, solder/coating masks, and other die-cut materials. Through its distribution partnership with CCL Design Electronics, Hover-Davis provides its customers with process optimized materials packaged with its industry leading AXIUM Series feeders as a single-source, fully supported solution. 

Combined with CAB SQUIX Series 600dpi industrial thermal transfer printers and accessories, the Hover-Davis supplied solutions can reliably automate hi-temperature identification and masking material applications as small as 3mm x 3mm, resulting in increased throughput, improved quality, and reduced labor cost. CCL’s innovative 540 Series labels can be laser marked for high-contrast, real-time serialization during PCB assembly and rework. These state-of-the-art technologies enable Industry 4.0 smart factory data management utilizing existing machines and floor space.

Hover-Davis will also display its premium, high-speed surface mount component tape feeders with exclusive features that reduce operating costs, extend the feeder life-cycle, and improve machine utilization, performance, and yield. Standard feeder configurations are available for PANASONIC, SIPLACE, and FUJI SMT equipment. Special feeder/interface configurations are also available for integration with a wide range of automation & OEM machine applications.

Visit Hover-Davis in booth #1837 and CCL Design Electronics in booth #1526 at IPC Apex Expo in San Diego, CA on February 4-6 to see their latest innovative solutions.
