Manncorp has introduced seven new electronic assembly turnkey lines with throughput rates ranging from prototyping to 10,500 cph. The lines are described at manncorp.com/turnkey and according to CEO Henry Mann, are targeted to "OEMs and others who are considering turning away from outsourcing by bringing PCB assembly in-house for the first time. The systems are also beamed to existing assemblers who wish to upgrade to latest-generation equipment."
The turnkeys, priced from $29,500 to $180,000, include stencil printer (or solder paste dispense capability), automated pick-and-place machine, and lead-free reflow oven. The higher-end lines additionally include a pass-through inspection conveyor and board loader/unloader.
Five of the systems have as their centerpiece Manncorp's performance-proved MC series pick-and-place machines. They feature latest Cognex® flying vision for chips down to 0201, CSPs, µBGAs, flip-chips and other components. Bottom vision is for larger components up to 150 x 100mm. Power is furnished by DC-servo motor with closed-loop encoding precision ball screw drive.
Mr. Mann pointed out that the advantages of an in-house board-building capability go beyond economy. "Vertical integration provides manufacturers with better control of their end product and accelerates time to market. Technical issues are not a factor since thorough onsite training is provided worldwide by a Manncorp tech specialist who remains available 24/7."
