Accommodating a wider range of production levels and budgets, Manncorp have reconfigured and expanded its selection of SMT turnkey packages. These packages include stencil printing, pick-and-place, and reflow soldering equipment.
One of the turnkeys made available is the 2500-MV package, which has been designed for companies with a limited budget and minimal floor space who need short-run, in-house production capability for ultra-precise, high component-mix SMT assembly. The cornerstone of the 2500-MV is the MC-400 pick and place system, featuring Cognex on-the-fly and bottom vision alignment. Also featured is 2500 CPH placement of a wide range of advanced SMDs—from 0201 chip components to BGAs and 15 mil ultra-fine-pitch devices. The MC-400 has the capacity for up to 64 automatic “smart” tape feeders and can also accept a wide variety of stick, cut-strip, and IC tray holders. Built upon the same architecture as Manncorp’s popular MC Series of SMT pick and place machines, MC-400 feeders and software are compatible with all other MC series equipment.
The heavy-duty MC-110 stencil printer is laso included in the 2500-MV, which the company claims is the industry’s most robust, highest-precision, manual printer with a repeatability of ±0.02 mm (less than 1 mil). Its universal mounting bracket allows clamping or screw mounting of frames up to 740 mm x 740 mm (29” x 29”) and tool-free, self-locking, X-Y-Z and theta axis adjustments provide quick and easy stencil to pad alignment.
Also included in the 2500-MV is the MC-301 profilable batch reflow oven, which simulates the performance of an inline system in a compact benchtop design. Through its innovative user interface and Android operating system, preheat, soak, reflow, and cooling stages are easily programmed to conform to component and paste manufacturer’s precise specifications. For process control and traceability, solder profiles are easily saved and distributed via built-in WiFi.
The 2500-MV package is priced at $46,995. the 2500-MV is designed for companies with a limited budget and minimal floor space who need short-run, in-house production capability for ultra-precise, high component-mix SMT assembly.
