IPTE is represented with its Easy-Test-Handler ETH and the depaneler EasyRouter at the German Pavilion at NEPCON South China 2015 from August 25 – 27 in Shenzen.
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.
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.
With this performance the IPTE EasyRouter sets now new benchmarks in PCB depaneling. The simple handling allows a quick plug-and-play use. 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. The loading and unloading of the depaneler 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 the Easy Router 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 comes 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 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 EasyRouter can be geared up with an acquisition system for production and operation data, in order to record the depaneling procedures.
