Available to order now are the newly developed iPulse S10 and S20 SMT placement machines. They are a further development of the popular M10 and M20 SMT placers which have been selling very well in the UK for the past 3 or 4 years.
Having noticed an increasing demand for machines to accommodate larger board sizes, iPulse have increased the maximum board size to 1825mm x 635mm. This will make the machine attractive for LED placement. Automatic solder paste dispensing can also be incorporated into the new S10 and S20 range.
A newly developed cast iron frame is used to support the machine, including a tilting mechanism and a long stroke ‘Z’ axis. This enables the machine to be used for 3D MID’s (Moulded Interconnect devices) and also placement onto concave or convex surfaces.
The machines will place components from 0201 size up to BGA’s of 120 x 90mm. The feeder capacity of the M20 is 180 lanes of 8mm tapes, up from 120 lanes on the previous M20 model. The smaller S10 can accommodate up to 90 feeders.
