The Board inverter turns a board upside down to make processing possible on both sides without manual intervention. A board transfer cycle consists of infeed, flip or no-flip, and outfeed. Up to 10 different board transfer cycles can be stored. The machine is bi-directional and can receive and send boards both up- and downstreams.
The Dual lane conveyor is the first product in a continuing series of Dual lane equipment. Each lane has its own standard SMEMA interface, which makes the conveyor easy to install in a dual lane electronics assembly line. Conveyor width adjustment is motorized.
The Turn unit routes boards from 1, 2 or 3 infeed sides, to 1, 2 or 3 outfeed sides. Board infeed/outfeed routing can be fixed, based on board flow, and/or based on priority values set via the control panel. Outfeed routing can also be controlled by external signals such as Good/No Good board or by a barcode reader.
The FIFO Buffer 10 has an advanced optional cooling function and is designed to balance station-capacity differences by offering board escape possibilities in case of failures or slow board flow in the connected systems. Buffer full warning level, start slot, stepping (pitch), pass through slot and cooling time are adjustable from the operators panel.
