“Future Packing Line” at SMT 2018 in Nuremberg: IPTE to exhibit efficient equipment

IPTE participates for the fourth time in the common booth “Future Packing Line” at SMT in Nuremberg (June 5 - 7).

This year the production line “Future Packing Line” shows an IoT construction kit which demonstrates different sceneries to learn more about the Internet of Things. Furthermore the production line focusses on quick adaption of production equipment concerning the products to be produced.

The common booth “Future Packing Line” is located in hall 5, booth 434. On an area of 1.000 m² not only the “Future Packing Line” is on display, also a number of co-exhibitors including IPTE.

The following IPTE components are integrated in the “Future Packing Line” 2018:

The conveying system “EasyLine”, the Laser Marking-System “FlexMarker II” and two EasyTestHandler “ETH”. Another part of the common booth is a separate IPTE booth, where the depaneling system “EasyRouter”, a version with increased functionality, will be presented.

IPTE EasyLine

The EasyLine program for board-handling of PCBs and ceramic substrate (Hybrid-) boards can be easily integrated into production lines and production processes. EasyLine modules are available in the sizes small (300 mm), medium (500 mm) or large (600 mm).

IPTE FlexMarker II

The advanced FlexMarker II is a highly flexible applicable laser marking system for processing PCBs featuring dimensions from 50 to 522 mm (both in width and length). Depending on customer requirements CO2, Fiber, YaG and UV laser are available. Another outstanding feature is Verify@Mark™ which verifies the code immediately after the marking without compromising cycle time.

Batch change-over consequences (such as solder mask changes) are automatically corrected using the Verify&Correct™ feature. This feature will verify the marking and correct the laser settings to ensure highest output quality, without losing handling time and with no operator action. Flipping of the PCB is done without prior moving the laser to a secured area, resulting in a handling time less than one second.

IPTE EasyTesthandler ETH

In-Circuit- or functional- test as well as programming processes can be inline automated with IPTE’s Easy-Test-Handler ETH. The ETH is practical for the use with single-circuit boards, multiple boards or corresponding carriers for circuit boards. Both, one- or double-sided fixtures can be realized. The fixtures can be changed quickly and easily. For optional parallel use of more than one test handler, the test handler can be equipped with a bypass-segment. This allows a constant production process, which is not interrupted by the testing process. Moreover, the Bypass can be used to optimize the cycle time.

IPTE EasyRouter

The IPTE EasyRouter is an effective depaneling system for off line use which offers some new features now. The machine is equipped with a productive milling tool featuring a speed of up to 60 mm/s for the fast routing of circuit boards from above. New features for example are increased accuracy, operator indicator lights for assistance in handling, noise level reduction by noise shielding panels and simulation of the tool route.
