High-Precision, Ballscrew Drive & Linear Encoder Technology

The MC385V1V's high-quality build and components ensure a level of repeatability and accuracy that other pick and place systems in its price range cannot match. High-powered AC servo motors allow for placement rates reaching 5,000 cph while a high-precision ball-screw drive and rotary encoders ensure placement accuracy of 30 µm, 3 Sigma.

Dual-Vision System for Widest Range of Components 

This pick and place machine's dual-vision system allows for components ranging from 01005s to 100 mm x 150 mm. The standard vision camera handles the smaller parts while the base-mounted, upward-aimed vision system handles larger SMDs (including BGAs). The head-mounted COGNEX® on-the-fly alignment system provides true non-contact alignment for the smallest parts, including CSPs and µBGAs, for maximum speed and efficiency.

High Feeder Capacity for Quick Job Changeover

With Smart Feeder Bases installed on all four sides, the MC385V1V has a max feeder capacity of 128. Tape feeders from 8 mm to 72 mm are available; the 8 mm feeders require only one port each on the feeder base while larger feeders require more. (A Manncorp sales professional can help determine the number of feeder ports your jobs require based on your BOM.)

In addition to tape feeders and universal tube/stick feeders mounted on the feeder bases, waffle trays and cut strip tape holders can be used in the placement area. Cut strip holders feed parts from short lengths of tape for components purchased in small quantities, or when a remaining section of tape is too short to be loaded into a tape feeder. The MC385V1V also allows for pick up, orientation, and placement of loose components from bulk component trays.

Smart Feeders for Fast, Error-Free Setup

Each base holds 32 slim-profile 8-mm standard or half-step Smart Tape Feeders, or up to 50 individual sticks/tubes (using Smart IC Tube Holders). The innovative design of the feeders and mounting hardware allows almost limitless configuration flexibility. Feeders can be loaded, programmed, and mounted independently. Or Smart Tape Feeders and Smart IC Tube Holders can be used together on the same feeder base for maximum flexibility. Learn more about MC series feeders.

Solid Build for Stability & Accuracy

A welded unibody steel frame gives this machine the rigidity and stability needed to withstand forces generated by the X-Y drive when running at high speeds. It is 5x heavier than other machines in this price range, and it ensures precision is maintained even at the upper end of its placement capability.

Large Placement Area

With the maximum of four feeder bases installed, the placement area will be 370 mm x 350 mm (14.5" x 13.8"), which still allows room for a waffle tray or cut strip tape holder alongside the PCB. When only front and back feeder ports are used, the placement area increases to 435 mm x 350 mm (17.1" x 13.8").

Easy to Use, Field-Tested Software

This pick & place uses the same robust, Windows®-based software as the higher end Manncorp machines. It is a simple and reliable system with the following key features:

  • Program via CAD import and conversion, teaching or direct entry.
  • Component library covers all common component package types and sizes (including resistors, capacitors, diodes, SOTs, PLCCs, QFPs, SOJs, SOPs, etc.).
  • Component data links to Smart Feeder software for easy setup and inventory control.
  • Virtual PCB Simulator displays a virtual assembly based on programming data.
  • Fiducial mark search routines identify and correct for PCB offset or misalignment.
  • Optimization tools analyze data and mix to provide feeder arrangements that minimize head travel and tool changes.
  • An optional dispensing head can be installed to assign parameters to specific components.
  • Remote diagnostic software allows for fast troubleshooting by Manncorp techs.

Optional Conveyors

The MC385V1V comes standard as a batch machine. Two conveyor options are available:

In/Out Conveyor. With this setup, the conveyor is located at the front of the machine, allowing for 3 feeder racks, with a max feeder capacity of 96 8-mm feeders to be installed on the machine. The operator places the board on the conveyor, the conveyor moves into the placement area, assembly is performed, and then the conveyor moves the board back out the front the machine for the operator to pick up and replace. (This is more efficient than reaching into the machine.).

Inline Conveyor. This SMEMA-compatible conveyor with motor-driven width control can be used inline or with magazine racks and a board loader and unloader. Feeder racks can be installed on the front and back of the machine, for a max feeder capacity of 64 8-mm tape feeders.

Optional Dispensing Head

Having a dispensing head can reduce stencil costs for small-volume jobs. The MC385V1V can come with an advanced time pressure (ATP) adhesive and solder paste dispensing system that eliminates the time and expense of having stencils made. This high-accuracy dispenser with closed-loop, microprocessor control produces dot sizes down to 0.5 mm diameter at rates to 6,000 dots/hour.

Due to the dispenser's tight integration with the machine, it cannot be retrofitted and must be specified during machine purchase.

Because feeder management and control software is included as part of the MC series pick & place software, smart feeding is standard on every MC series pick & place machine. A wide range of affordable, efficient and reliable smart tape and stick feeders are available, as well as waffle tray and cut tape strip holders.

  • High-precision design
  • Built-in memory modules and COM ports
  • Ultra-smooth electronic actuation and tape advance
  • Smart data linking optimizes setups, speeds job changes
  • Prevent feeders from being loaded in the wrong ports
  • Bar codes can be used for quick data entry and verification

Innovative Feeder with a Built-In Display

Information is stored directly, and constantly updated, within this new feeder. The OLED screen allows operators to review component quantities on reels, feeder slot locations, part numbers, part values, and more - all while the machine is in-use or offline. Being able to view this vital information on the feeder itself adds an extra level of insurance that the correct parts will be placed accurately from the onset, fixing problems before reaching the inspection stage.

  • Component reel information is now stored/updated in the feeder.
  • OLED displays allow for easy monitoring of the component consumption status.
  • The feeder has an internal battery, so data will always be available in both online (connected to machine) and offline (standalone) modes.
  • Vision library names are displayed (for example 0201, SOIC16, QFP44, etc.) and the feeder stores the lot & date codes of components.

Slim Design Maximizes Capacity

Manncorp MC series Smart tape feeders set a new standard for accurate, dependable and economical SMD presentation. The slim-profile design of these smart feeders maximizes the number of feeders that can be mounted in the space available on the pick and place machine.

Unique IDs Access Relevant Feeder Data When Feeder Is Plugged In

Each smart tape feeder has a DB-9 interface connector on its front end. The DB-9 plugs into any MC series smart feeder base to allow communication between the MC series control software and the memory module that's built into each feeder. The memory module stores a unique feeder ID number that, as soon as the feeder is plugged into a base, instantly links it with its relevant data: assigned feeder position (port), feeder size and type, component value, lot code, date code, starting quantity, index increment, and package type.

Automatic Index Adjustment Prevents Pick-Up Errors

MC series pick & place machines can use vision to calculate the offset of the component tape from the taught pickup position and index the tape feeder forward or backward accordingly. This feature is especially useful when reloading a feeder with a new reel where the alignment of the tape pocket position is slightly off from the position of the previous reel. If pickup errors associated with loose tolerances between components and tape pockets are a problem, this feature can be set to check and index on every pickup for the feeders with the problem tape reels.

Full Range of Feeder Sizes

Smart tape feeders are available in 8 mm to 72 mm widths with programmable tape index settings from 2 mm to 36 mm. Variable tape index settings, from 16 mm to 26 mm, can also be stored in the smart feeder memory modules. This is particularly useful for 32 mm through 72 mm tape widths when extra component length requires more than the standard 4 mm, 8 mm or 12 mm tape index. Storing these setting in the memory module ensures that the settings will be used for that feeder regardless of where it is loaded—even if it is loaded on a different machine.

Smart Tape Feeder Carts for Storage and Off-Line Kitting

Transport, store, and protect your valuable Smart Tape Feeders with the sturdy, dual-tiered Smart Tape Feeder Storage Carts. The model FR-ST64 (shown) holds as many as 64 individual 8 mm Smart Tape Feeders. This handy accessory can be wheeled easily from the kitting area to the production floor and organizes feeder handling for quick and efficient setup and changeover. The heavy-duty tubular construction holds each feeder securely and shields them from impact as they move around the assembly floor.

Universal Stick Feeders for Flexibility

Manncorp smart stick feeders can be positioned directly adjacent to Manncorp smart tape feeders and, like the tape feeders, are able to communicate with the MC series software via DB-9 interface connectors that plug into the smart feeder base. The memory modules store unique ID numbers that link the individual lanes in the feeder hardware with relevant feeder data, including assigned feeder position, component data, belt indexing increments, and on/off time control settings for the vibratory/gravity feed portion of the feeder.

  • Quick-change feeder locations
  • Feeder position verification
  • Cut out manual data entry

Automatic Component Quantity Tracking

The software also tracks the number of components used, updating each feeder's memory module at the end of the production run with the quantity remaining on the reel (based on the number of pickups). This value, like the feeder ID, is retained with the feeder even after the feeder has been removed from the feeder base. When that feeder is loaded for new—or even a different—production run, the component quantity will be read from the smart feeder back into the assembly program so that an accurate component count can continue.

Feeder Position Verification

When using optimized feeder positions (a feature included in the MC series software), smart feeder IDs can be verified against feeder position data to ensure that the correct feeders are in the correct connector ports.

Position Scanning for Fast Changeover

When optimized feeder positions are not used, the system can automatically scan the loaded feeders for their IDs and inform the assembly program of each pick-up's feeder location.

Quick-Change Feeder Locations

If the operator, for whatever reason, has to position the smart feeders in a different arrangement on the machine or doesn't want to reposition smart feeders that are used in consecutive production runs, the Change Feeder Location Function can be used to import the new feeder ID data into the pick and place file.

Cut Out Manual Data Entry

An optional bar code reader can make quick work of reading and entering component data, including value, lot code, date code and starting quantity, directly from the reel or other packaging.

  • MC series pick and place machines feature large, open work areas that accept a variety of holders for trays and cut tape strips

TS-1 Tray Holder

TS-1 tray holder occupies approximately 13" x 5.5" (330 mm x 140 mm) of work area and is designed to hold a standard 12.4" x 5.35" (316 mm x 136 mm) JEDEC Matrix Tray or up to two cut strip tape holders. The TS-1 provides adjustability for a wide variety of smaller matrix tray and waffle pack combinations and can easily be modified for custom tray configurations.

CST Cut Strip Tape Holders for Short Lengths of Taped Components

CST Cut Strip Tape Holders are a handy accessory for presenting components that are supplied in short lengths of tape due to their low quantity of usage or to prevent the waste of components in sections of tape that are too short to be loaded into tape feeders. This photo shows standard holders for 8 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm and 24 mm tapes. Other sizes are available upon special request.
