Essemtec AG will unveil another product from its family of EXPERT-LINE pick-and-place machines. The EXPERT-SAFP is capable of 600每800cph placement speed chip and a 100-200cph placement speed IC.

The placement system comes with standard configuration including a micro adjust PCB holder (x, y, theta), microprocessor control, XY measurement system, and interface and software. It also has optional features such as a micro camera and prism QFP alignment system.

Equipped with Essemtec's patented pick-and-place head with air suspension, the system allows for adjustable placement force that results in precise placements even after long periods. The lightweight pantograph arm and the air suspended placement head also enable fast and accurate operation.

An integrated microprocessor controls all operations. Its modularity feature ensures that all functions are included within the electronics, making future upgrades possible. An LCD provides status of the system's operating mode.

The EXPERT-SAFP also includes a smooth gliding arm, integrated placement illumination, automatic component lowering to the PCB, and glue and solder paste dispensing mechanism. Available in both manual and semiautomatic models, the EXPERT-SAFP can place BGAs, CSPs and flip chips.
