High-Speed, High-Efficiency Design
The 6-head MCLEDV6's high speed linear drive gantry performs simultaneous pick-up to achieve rates of 30,000 LEDs per hour (per IPC-9850 standard). True fly-over alignment, with an upward-looking camera located between the feeder base and PCB, aligns components while the head is in motion. Thanks to the included software, feeder locations are also optimized prior to placement to minimize head travel and tool changes.
Specifically Designed for LED Assembly
Unlike standard pick and place machines that have been adapted to LED assembly, the MCLEDV6 is purpose-built specifically to build LED boards. The MCLEDV6 places LED components from 0402 to 20 mm x 18 mm, including both standard and irregularly shaped LEDs to small connectors or resistors.
Each of the MCLEDV6's six placement heads features positive air pressure to release 'sticky' LED components. Non-stick, Teflon®-coated nozzles—including custom nozzle designs—are also available. Rounded LEDs can be safely placed using placement nozzles designed to not meet the optical lens during pick-up, protecting the component's overall performance and reliability.
Options For All LED Lighting Products
Flexible PCB strips, circular LED light bulb boards and even irregularly shaped boards can also be assembled quickly, accurately, and reliably on all models in the MCLED-series. With all models, the full length of the board is assembled in a single pass for top efficiency and throughput.
- For long LED tubes, model MCLEDV6-12 features a max board size of 47.3" (1200 mm).
The MCLEDV6 comes standard with a worktable and magnetic board fixture or can be configured at time of purchase with a SMEMA-compatible inline conveyor for automation.
Software Simplifies Production
Several powerful software tools are included with the MCLEDV6 system, including the UCAD® universal CAD import/conversion utility to simplify placement programming, a feeder arrangement optimizer to minimize head travel and tool changes, and real-time monitoring of production that gives the operator at-a-glance information. Easily monitor production with a virtual view of products under assembly, along with placement rate, placement time, and production count.
Companies that already have one or more MC-series machines in their facility will find the MCLEDV6's software interface immediately familiar, which means zero learning curve when it comes to programming and operating.
The MCLEDV6 offers nonstop production. Its ability to automatically switch to a different feeder when an in-use one runs out of components allows operators to refill empty feeders without taking production offline. Up to 16 special, servo-driven feeders can be used with the MCLEDV6. Brushless motors promote a longer feeder life under around-the-clock production conditions. And with these feeders, it is also possible to splice a new reel onto an old one for minimizing production interruption.
