Following a distribution agreement with ASM Assembly Systems, Key Production Equipment (KPE) is showing the new E by SiPlace SMT pick-and-place system for the first time in the UK at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2017. Previously, ASM Assembly Systems offered only SiPlace high-end systems and handled distribution exclusively in-house.
The platform offers the latest in technology and has features for new product introduction (NPI) centres, says the company, and for small and medium-sized electronics manufacturers, where flexibility is important. Its team has knowledge in sales and services and experience with electronics producers.
The first all-round placement platform from ASM sets new standards in this machine category with its high-end vision system, E-feeders and high-precision linear drives. The standard model has placement force sensors, which enables it to handle complex circuit boards and place the latest generation of ultra-fine-pitch and small 01005 components quickly and accurately. With the SiPlace CP12PP combi-head, users can run the single-gantry machine as a standalone line, making it suitable for short runs and prototype production. The software is powerful, yet user-friendly, adds the company.
