SM-902 Semi-automatic placement system


SM902 Semi-automatic Placement System

Our semi-automatic manipulator SM 902 eliminates wrong placements and releafs the user as reading the assembly plan isn’t necessary anymore.

The pickup and place position for the next component is shown on the monitor. The user is guided through the whole project step by step.

For the SM 902 the same options as for the LM 901 are available. To further support the user, the SM 902 can be upgraded step by step to the functionality of the SM 902 professional. This increases the assembly output even further.

Standard Maximum board handling – 310mm x 410mm

CAD data converter

To create new assembly projects with ease, a universal CAD data converter reads in existing CAD information for the SM 902.
By this you stay flexible in the future.

Teach in

If no CAD data is available, the needed placement positions can be taught in by hand.
To do this, each needed position is approached and approved to the system.

Offline Software

The offline software makes it possible to prepare all needed project data on a separate PC. The results can then be transferred to the machine using a network or a storage device.

Traverse path indicators

The movement direction to the next target position is additionally displayed by 4 LEDs on the assembly head.

Update to SM 902 professional

The SM 902 can by upgraded to the functionality of the SM 902 professional step-by-step (i.e. with LED feeder-display, automatic feeders etc.).

Dispensing and mini-camera can also be added



To assemble prototypes and small series more quickly, a dispenser can be mounted to the assembly head. It can be used to dispense solder paste or glue on the circuit board.



With a camera attached to the assembly head, you can view the whole Pick&Place process – magnified on a monitor.
Thus even the smallest parts like 0201 and 0402 can be placed exactly. Another benefit of the camera is the possible docu- mentation of the process by saving single picture frames to the harddisk of an attached PC.

Component flipping

is always a problem with manual systems – see Flip tray video below
