The keys to our SMT success are automation and flexibility. Our first completely automated Assembleon line uses a topaz and emerald placement system. We also recently installed a new Heller 1809 (lead-free approved) nine-zone convection oven, as lead-free profiling requires controlled cooling temperatures.
Our second line is the Topaz XII, and this placement is the latest rendering from Assembleon. Placement ranges from 0201 to 45mm sq. component packages. This machine reaches placement speeds of 20,000 components per hour and conveyors to a Heller 1500 reflow oven, which helps eliminate operator handling errors
