|SMT placement rates greater than 3 connectors/second
Zierick Manufacturing Corporation introduces a new addition to its Surf-Shooter SMT ™ product line. The new loose piece board stacking connector feeder is designed to mount to a flexible placement system (flex cell) and present the SMT components at feed rates greater than 3 pins/second. The Surf-Shooter SMT ™ Continuous Strip Feeder line has been successfully integrated into most flex cell placement systems, including Siemens, Universal, Mydata and Europlacer.
The unit is compact, less than 4 wide, and mounts to the placement system feeder bay. The feeder itself is a self-contained unit, Standard Voltage 110VAC 60 Cycle, Optional 220 VAC 50 Cycle. It typically requires no electronic control interface with the placement machine.
The Board Stacking Connectors are self-centering and offer co-planarity within 0.001, eliminating alignment problems. They use minimal real estate, allowing additional components to be placed on the PCB and providing design flexibility. For a more reliable connection, the Board Stacking Connectors use capillary action, which provides stronger solder joints.
