SIPLACE TX

The latest generation of our placement modules sets new records in speed, floorspace performance and accuracy for high-volume production applications. And for the first time, 0201 (metric) components can be placed at the highest speed.

Innovations

The latest generation of SIPLACE placement modules set placement performance, floorspace performance and placement accuracy records. The innovative high-end placement platform SIPLACE TX m achieves new benchmarks in placement performance and productivity per area. The compact design of the SIPLACE TX m supports precise scaling of line performance in small steps. The SIPLACE TX m Edition V2 placement machines are available in three variants:
• TX2 m (588520)
• TX2i m (588525)
• TX2i m 4 mm (588526)
The SIPLACE TX2 m supports the accuracy class for enhanced placement accuracy of 15 μm (3σ) and 20 μm (3σ). 

The SIPLACE TX2i m also offers the entire benchmark placement performance range of 96,000 [components/h] at an accuracy of 25 μm (3σ) and 85,500 [components/h] with the SIPLACE TX2 m. To achieve maximum accuracy, the SIPLACE TX m placement machines are equipped with high resolution glass ceramic scales on the main axes and the C&P20 M3 or CPP M heads. A highly rigid PCB conveyor and an additional fiducial rail are also used.

The SIPLACE TX2i m 4 mm facilitates placement of 4 mm high components with the C&P20 M3 placement head. The user enjoys a PCB conveyor with flexible SIPLACE dual conveyor.

SIPLACE SpeedStar

Extremely fast and with long-term precision

Features:

  • 20 segments for maximum speed – up to 48,000 cph on the SIPLACE TX
  • For components ranging from 0201 (metric) to 8.2 x 8.2 mm

SIPLACE MultiStar

The first head that changes its mode on demand

Extremely flexible: The SIPLACE MultiStar switches between three different placement modes in response to software commands. It transforms into the right mode for any application. As a result, your line stays perfectly balanced even during frequent product changeovers with no expensive configuration or head changes.
 

A new level of freedom:

  • Instant switching between collect-and-place, pick-and-place and mixed modes
  • Up to 25,500 cph
  • Widest component spectrum: 01005 to 50 x 40 mm
  • Component height up to 15,5mm
  • Maximum placement force up to 15N

SIPLACE TwinStar

Intelligent and forceful

The SIPLACE TwinStar is a high-precision pick-and-place head for the end-of line placement of large and heavy components as well as odd shapes.

It can pick up components with a nozzle or a gripper. With over 120 grippers for special components, SIPLACE offers everything you need to automatically place connectors and other odd shapes.

  • Precisely adjustable force up to 100 N
  • Component spectrum: 0201 to 200 x 125 mm at a height of 50mm
  • Standard equipment: Fine-pitch camera, vacuum sensor, force sensor, nozzle changes, PCB warpage detection
  • Options: Flip-chip camera, coplanarity module
  • Snap-in detection and real-time 3D measurement
  • Component weight up to 300 g

SIPLACE Smart Pin Support

Automated pin support for printed circuit boards

Do you use support pins to stabilize thin or very large PCBs when components are placed on them?

With SIPLACE Smart Pin Support you can reduce setup effort and make the process much more reliable, as the support pins are placed fully automatically and they can be individually adjusted to each product’s needs.

The revolution in PCB support

  • Maximum process stability: The SIPLACE Pin-Picker on the placement head places support pins fully automatically and accurately – verified by the SIPLACE vision system
  • Product-specific pin support: The pin positions are programmed in SIPLACE Pro as part of the placement program
  • Smart: Software wizards help you select the ideal pin positions – e.g. for double-sided boards
  • Efficient: automatic pin placement speeds up the start of production and allows for non-stop setup changeovers

Component Feeding

Precise and reliable component feeding is highly important for the performance and placement accuracy. That’s why ASM engineers are constantly improving this process with intelligent SIPLACE feeder modules.

The latest improvements:
  • Feeding on demand
  • Auto-pitch learning function
  • Short-tape handling
  • Online power supply SIPLACE PowerConnector X is enabling feeder preparation online or troubleshooting online without stopping machine
  • Optional measuring component position before initial pickup after feeder log on, track refill or cover opening

SIPLACE Glue Feeder

Glue with precision and flexibility

The SIPLACE Glue Feeder dispenses the adhesive directly onto the component from below. It can be installed just like any other feeder.
  • Parameter programming with SIPLACE Pro
  • Check glue dots with the ASM vision system
  • Easy setup like any other feeder

SIPLACE BulkFeeder

No tapes, no splicing, fewer machine stops

With its innovative technology, the SIPLACE BulkFeeder X says goodbye to component reels. With no tapes and no splicing, it makes high-speed production processes much more reliable.

▪ eliminates splicing: fewer machine stops, more productivity
▪ simplifies supply logistics: reduced space and require less material travel
▪ reduces the number of assists: more components per setup
▪ simplifies setup changeovers: cartridge – replacement instead of splicing
▪ minimizes dust and waste: no abrasion, no tape, leftovers

SIPLACE JTF-ML2

The JTF-ML2 is a flexible automatic

feeding solution for JEDEC trays as well as cookie trays smaller then JEDEC size. It is designed to handle both thick and thin variants of JEDEC trays (JEDEC Standard No.95-1, IEC 60286-5) and to deliver those trays to the designated pick-up positions with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability. With the JTF-ML2 further improvements have been done :
– Performance
– Handling
– Ease of Use
– Dynamic behavior
– Quality
The JTF-ML2 includes two exchangeable cassettes similar to the MTC concept. It is possible to exchange the cassette during production without stopping the production. For Thick JEDEC Trays there are two cassettes with each 7 levels. For Thin JEDEC Trays there are two cassettes with each 9 levels. A mix of a thick and thin cassette is not possible. The cassette comes with an embedded RFID tag which contains the Cassette Type ID. The RFID reader is located on the tower module; it reads the cassette Type ID when the RFID tag reaches the detection range.
