EMS and Arc are excited to announce Arc’s new addition, the arrival of the new Solder Paste Inspection (SPI) and SX Pick and Place equipment from ASM Assembly Systems. This is the latest technology from ASM’s full suite of solder printing, solder paste inspection and pick and place equipment.
The ASM Processing Lens (SPI) provides the ultimate solder printing inspection, ensuring each and every solder deposit is consistent throughout the entire production build. This is achieved by having a direct link with our ASM Horizon 3 Screen Printer. Using ASM’s ProcessEngine software, the SPI is equipped to autonomously control the Horizon 3 based on the SPI feedback of the quality of the solder print. Constantly monitoring the process through this automation allows us to identify potential defects early in the process and avoid costly rework downstream.
The SX pick and place equipment provides us the ultimate in flexibility to support our SMT production needs. The SX platform has many state-of-the art features including large feeder capacity, off-line feeder setup, component package placement range of 0201 to 200 mm x 125 mm x 50mm and placement speeds up to 66,000 placements per hour.
“We are very excited about our new SMT line. ASM Assembly Systems has been a partner of Arc-Tronics since 2004 and we look forward to continuing our long-term relationship!” – Matthew Goeringer C.O.O.
