Two Heads for Increased Throughput

The MC385V2V features two placement heads, each fitted with fast, efficient, on-the-fly Cognex® vision alignment and mounted on high-speed AC servo motors to achieve placement rates reaching 8,000 cph (5,500 cph per IPC 9850).

High-Precision Drive and Linear Encoder Technology

A high-quality build and components ensure a level of repeatability and accuracy that other pick and place machines in the MC385V2V's price range can't match. High-precision, ball-screw drive, and linear encoders ensure placement accuracy of 30 µm, 3 Sigma.

Dual-Vision Systems for a Wide Component Range

The head-mounted camera provides true, non-contact alignment for even the smallest parts, allowing for maximum speed and efficiency. The standard camera handles parts down to 0201s (down to 01005 capability is available as an option). Plus, the base-mounted, upward-aimed camera system handles larger SMDs, up to 38 x 38 mm (optionally, up to 150 x 100 mm).

High Feeder Capacity for Fast Job Changes

With 32-port Smart Feeder Bases installed on all four sides, up to 128 smart tape feeders can be mounted on the MC385V2V. Tape feeders from 8 mm to 72 mm are available. The 8 mm feeders require only one port each on the base; larger feeders will require more. Your Manncorp sales professional can help you determine how many feeder ports your jobs will require based on your BOM.

In addition to tape and stick feeders, waffle trays and cut strip tape holders can be used in the placement area. Our MC385V2V also allows for pick up, alignment, and placement of loose components from bulk component trays.

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, MC385V2V's placement area of 370 mm x 350 mm (14.5" x 13.8") 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.
  • When optional dispensing head is installed, dispensing patterns and parameters can be defined and assigned to specific components in the component library.
  • 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.

Conveyor Options

The MC385V2V comes standard as a batch machine. Two conveyor options are available:



  • 1. In/Out Conveyor – . With this setup, the conveyor is located at the front of the machine, allowing for three 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 of the front the machine for the operator to pick up and replace.


  • 2. Inline Conveyor – . This SMEMA-compatible conveyor 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 maximum total feeder capacity of 64 8-mm tape feeders.
  • Optional Dispensing Head

    Having a dispensing head can reduce stencil costs for small-volume jobs. The MC385V2V 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 0.2 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.

    SMART TAPE FEEDERS v

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

    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, while the larger FR-ST96 can hold a total of 96. 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.

    Tape Feeder Specifications

    These tape feeders work with all Manncorp MC series pick and place machines.

    SMART STICK FEEDERS v

    • Universal design adjust to virtually any SMD length, width, or tube packaging dimensions
    • Available with 10 or 20 lanes
    • Mount directly on MC series smart feeder bases, alongside smart tape feeders
    • Memory modules link feeder lanes to specific component data

    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.

    Tape Feeder Specifications

    These tape feeders work with all Manncorp MC series pick and place machines.


    Model # Max. Number of Sticks/Tubes Vibratory/Gravity Feed Zones Feeder Base Port Positions Occupied
    KFTB-2 10 2 9
    KFTB-4 20 4 17

     

    SMART SOFTWARE v

    • Included as standard with all MC series pick and place machines
    • Automatic component quantity tracking
    • Feeder position verification
    • Position scanning for fast changeover
    • Quick-change feeder locations
    • 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.

     

    WAFFLE TRAYS & CUT STRIP HOLDERS v

    • 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. See CST holders on a TS-1 tray holder
