Press Release Summary:
Optimized for flexibility and throughput, dual-head MC-385 suits high-mix, mid-volume assembly applications from product development to full manufacturing. CognexÂ® flying vision and stationary bottom vision speeds throughput, with latter providing instantaneous imaging of undersides of components. Traditional bottom vision is used for oversized components to 100 x 50 mm, chip placement capability covers 0201s as well as flip chips, and placement accuracy is Â±.03 mm.
Original Press Release:
Manncorp's New & Faster Mid-Range MC-385 Pick-and-Place to be Introduced at SMTAI
The new dual-head MC-385, Manncorp's latest addition to its popular MC Series of pick-and-place systems, claimed to deliver greater flexibility, higher throughput and lower cost of ownership, is expected to be premiered at SMTA International in San Diego.
"This machine has raised the bar significantly for mid-volume pick-and-place systems," claims CEO Henry Mann. "An IPC-rated speed of up to 5,500 cph, plus expandability and compatibility features allow the MC-385 to be called on for almost any high-mix, mid-volume assembly application - from product development to full manufacturing."
The machine's increased speed is attributed to its latest Cognex® flying vision and stationary bottom vision - the latter providing instantaneous imaging of the undersides of components. Previously, BGAs, µBGAs, QFPs to 12 mils and flip chips were detoured to a fixed bottom camera, necessitating extra head travel to process these devices. Traditional bottom vision is used for oversized components to 100mm x 50mm. Chip placement capability includes 0201s and flip chips, while AC motor and linear encoder combined with vision, ensure a placement accuracy of ± .03mm (± .001").
In its inline configuration, 64 smart tape feeders can be accommodated, while up to 128 feeders are installable in the batch mode. The system features high-precision ball-screw X-Y drive and closed-loop servo control with linear encoding, The MC-385 is introductory-priced at $49,995.
