IPTE participates at the German Pavilion at NEPCON Shanghai 2016

Easy-Test-Handler, EasyRouter and TopRouter to be presented.
IPTE is represented with its Easy Test Handler ETH and the depanelers EasyRouter & TopRouter at the German Pavilion (Stand: 1D05) at NEPCON Shanghai China 2016 from April 26 - 28.

Easy Test Handler 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 according to the lean production method SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Die). For optional parallel testing, multiple Test-Handlers equipped with a bypass transport, can be placed in series. 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.

The IPTE Easy Test Handler ETH is an economical test solution with compact footprint. The Easy Test Handler integrates easily in a fully automated SMEMA-compatible test environment and provides enough space for 19 inch-Test-Equipment (10 HE). The integrated LC-touch display gives access to all parameters and settings.

EasyRouter and TopRouter
The performance of both manual IPTE EasyRouter and TopRouter now sets new benchmarks in PCB depaneling. The simple handling allows a quick plug-and-play use. Both routers can be equipped with a productive milling tool featuring a speed of up to 60 mm/s for the fast routing of circuit boards from above. The TopRouter can also be equipped with a saw blade for speeds up to 200 mm/s (or both router and saw blade). The loading and unloading of the depanelers takes place manually during the separating process via a rotating table on which non-complex and highly functional work-piece holders are mounted. For high user comfort both the EasyRouter and TopRouter features also a light-curtain gate. This way the handling time can be significantly reduced without any deficit in operator safety.

The X and Y drive mechanisms for the milling operation during the separating process are equipped with modern, fast and precise linear-motor axes. For the easy programming of the depaneling process, the EasyRouter and TopRouter come with the camera-based CATS (Camera Aided Teaching System). Moreover, the programming can be carried out by using standard dxf files or with G-data codes. Both capabilities are available for off-line or on-line operation respectively.

From the additional options offered the customers can select from an extensive range of tools. The EasyRouter can optionally (standard for TopRouter) be equipped with a tool-break monitor system and a tool operating-time counter. According to the individual application the user can also select from a broad range of dust vacuum-suction systems. A processor tool is available on request for the application of existing CAD data to ease the programming task. Additionally, the routers can be geared up with an acquisition system for production and operation data, in order to record the depaneling procedures.
