The Surface Mount section of Zeal’s Production process utilise 2 fully automated pick and place machines. With a dedicated team of trained Operators a Mycronic MY300LX with a 4K vision system provide the functionality of a system capable of placing up to 18,000 components per hour with an accuracy of placement accuracy of +/- 15um. This meets the requirements for all components including 01005 passives and the ultra-fine pitch/ BGA components.
The MY300 along with the MyCentre software suite allows us to setup the jobs from customer supplied data. This should enable us to run any job more efficiently, reducing machine times and providing a faster service to our customers.
Further efficiency coupled with a built in redundancy factor have been achieved through having a secondary surface mount line able to run independently or share the load of any large or dual sided assemblies.
The pick and place machines are augmented by a 10 zone reflow oven achieving a fully controllable temperature profile (KIC profile and monitoring) for lead free and leaded assemblies, two high performance screen printers and a rework station facility with a x30 magnification to sustain the quality of the product. We also have a BGA rework station with high definition cameras to enable us to efficiently remove and replace any BGA devices.
We have a full range of Agilis feeders to a allow better pick rates on all components. This allows the best yield out of any materials either purchased by us or supplied by our customers.
