Manncorp Adds LED Board Assembly Equipment Section To Website
Answering growing demand for equipment dedicated to LED assembly, manncorp.com now includes LED-capable pick-and-place systems -- one of which can also serve as a mid-range placer for today’s surface mount components.
According to CEO Henry Mann, system MC-388LED is ideally suited for LED panel assembly of up to 1.2m (47.25) in a single pass. With a 192 tape feeder capacity, it will also perform pick-and-place for larger back-plane boards requiring multi-feeders. Cognex®-based on-the-fly alignment mounts any SMD from 0.4 to 0.2mm to 16mm x 14mm, including flip-chips, CSPs and µBGAs. Upward-looking Cognex® vision allows placement of larger components up to 150mm x 100mm, BGAs, QFPs and connectors.
Because the MC-388LED can lead this double life, Mr. Mann reports, it earns its keep by providing rapid return on investment (ROI) and giving its users, particularly contractors, the ability to handle a wider range of production assignments.
The machine features ball-screw X-Y drive, closed-loop servo control with linear encoding and full Cognex® vision for a placement accuracy of 30 µm, 3 sigma. It is available with two or four heads, achieving placement speeds from 6,500 to 10,000 CPH. Waffle trays and stick feeders may also be accommodated in its massive placement area of 408mm x 1200mm (16 x 47.25). Conveyors for special applications are also available. The MC-388LED is priced from $85,000.
Of particular importance to LED assemblers is the availability of a wide variety of standard and custom pick-up tools, including non-stick Teflon® types that impart positive output pressure upon component placement.
