MC388 High Mix High Component Count or LEDs

The MC388 features four simultaneous pick-up heads and up to 256 Smart Feeder Ports in a batch configuration (192 when used as an inline machine), providing a near-zero job changeover time. Plus, it has the huge placement area, high precision, and accuracy that users have come to expect from MC-series component placers. 

Ideal for LED strips, drivers, or other large, high-component panels.

Huge Feeder Capacity & Placement Area

Configured as a batch/standalone machine, the MC388 accepts two additional 32-port feeder racks, bringing its total feeder capacity to 256. With that many feeder slots, job changeover time is reduced to nearly zero. Placement area when the machine is fully loaded with feeders is up to 1200 x 408 mm (47.2” x 16”).

When configured with the largest board holder, an inline MC388 can have up to 192 feeders mounted on the front and rear while still maintaining a generous 1200 x 370 mm (47.2” x 14.6") placement area (which can be shared between PCBs and waffle trays).

Set Up to Suit Your Needs

The standard MC388 configuration includes a 3-stage, single-lane conveyor system with SMEMA interface and auto width control. It also comes standard with a fully adjustable, three-stage, single-lane inline conveyor for PCBs up to 650 mm. For handling even longer boards, two options exist:

1. A single-stage 1.2-meter upgrade that allows the MC388 to process boards up to four feet long —such as those used for LED lighting—in a single pass.

2. A dual-stage conveyor option that extends maximum PCB length to 1.5 meters.

The MC388 is also available in batch/standalone configuration, which allows users to take advantage of the full feeder-base capacity.

Quickly and Accurately Place Just About Any SMD Component

Our standard optics package places parts as small as 0201s. An optional hybrid optics package adds the capability of placing parts down to 01005, while still maintaining placement accuracy of 30 µm, 3 Sigma. At the other end of the spectrum, MC388 can place SMDs as large as 38 x 38 mm.

Alignment is accomplished via a dual-vision combination of head-mounted Cognex® on-the-fly cameras and stationary bottom cameras. Full-vision alignment, which matches component leads, balls, or bumps directly with the pads, eliminates placement inaccuracies caused by systems that locate and align to only the component body.

Easy-to-Use, Field-Tested Software

Our MC388 pick and place machine uses the same robust, Windows®-based software as all other MC-series machines. Customer feedback over the past ten years has created a very easy-to-use, stable, and reliable system.

  • 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.
  • Assemble LED boards, backplanes, and other long panels.
