The M-Series range of mid- to high-volume SMD placers is extended with the MG-2 chipshooter. The MG-2 provides high-speed, high-mix, high-accuracy production for applications such as automotive, memory boards and PC peripherals. It can be used standalone to deliver chipshooting speeds of up to 40 k cph at lowest cost per placement. Or it can be used alongside the MG-1 and/or MG-8 multifunctional machines to boost line performance in applications requiring additional chipshooting capacity.
The MG-2 features a high-precision dual-gantry system carrying four beams, each with six heads. It places components from 01005 to CSP, BGA, PLCC and QFP with a maximum size of 14 mm2, with placing accuracy of 50 micron at 3 sigma for chips.
Benefits of the MG-2 include a small footprint and functional flexibility within the M-Series range. The MG-2 uses the same user interface, feeders, feeder trolleys and spare parts as the MG-1 and MG-8. In fact, the M-Series machines use the same interface and feeders as their counterparts in the GEM XII range, providing a cost-effective upgrade opportunity for existing users.
The MG-2 accepts 96 smart feeders and accommodates tape, stick, and bulk feeders. The smart feeders are equipped with the latest RFID technology to enable fast and easy machine set-up and provide a real-time component inventory check. At the same time, feeder indicators provide the operator with all essential feeder status information.
