High-Speed, High-Efficiency Design
Four pick-and-place heads mounted on the MCLEDV4-1800's high precision, ball-screw-driven gantry perform simultaneous pick-up to achieve rates to 15,000 LEDs per hour (per IPC-9850 standard). True "vision on the fly" alignment, with upward-looking cameras located on the placement heads, aligns components while the head is in motion—saving time over fixed-camera systems where the component is brought over the camera for alignment before it can move to the placement area. 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 MCLEDV4-1800 is purpose-built, to build LED boards— and does it really well. This machine places LED components from 0201 to 8 mm x 8 mm, including both standard and irregularly shaped LEDs.
Each of the machine's four placement heads feature positive air pressure to release 'sticky' LED components. Non-stick, Teflon®-coated nozzles—including custom nozzle designs—are also available. Domed LEDs can be safely placed using placement nozzles designed to not touch the optical lens during pick-up and placement, protecting the component's overall performance and reliability.
Suitable for All LED Lighting Products
Flexible PCB strips, circular LED light bulb boards and even irregularly shaped boards can be assembled quickly, accurately, and reliably on the MCLEDV4-1800.
- The MCLEDV4-1800 features a max board length of 70.8" (1800 mm).
- The full length of each board is assembled in a single pass for top efficiency and throughput.
- A worktable and magnetic board fixture come standard. (The machine can alternatively be configured at time of purchase with a SMEMA-compatible inline conveyor for automation.)
Software Simplifies Production
Companies that already have one or more MC-series machines in their facility will find the MCLEDV4-1800's software interface immediately familiar, allowing for zero learning curve when it comes to programming and operation.
Several powerful software tools are included with the MCLEDV4-1800 system, including the UCAD® (universal CAD) import and conversion utility to simplify placement programming, a feeder arrangement optimizer to minimize head travel and tool changes, and real-time monitoring of production (through a virtual view of under-assembly product progress, along with placement rates, placement time, and production count).
The MCLEDV4-1800 offers nonstop production. Its ability to automatically switch to a different feeder when an in-use feeder runs out of components allows the operator to refill and replace the empty feeders without ever taking production offline.
Special, servo-driven feeders use brushless motors that extend feeder life under around-the-clock production conditions. With these feeders, it is also possible to splice a new reel onto an old one, minimizing production interruption.
