Printer’s Unique Auto Unload Feature Eliminates Need for PCB Handling Equipment; Saves Money, Space, Flexibility

Surface Mount Techniques’ AUL2220 printer with auto unload saves money by reducing the need for PCB handling equipment, saves floor space, and brings greater flexibility to the SMT printing process.

Huntington Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2004 -- Surface Mount Techniques’ AUL2220 printer with auto unload saves money by reducing the need for PCB handling equipment, saves floor space, and brings greater flexibility to the SMT printing process. Its unique auto unload feature, developed exclusively by Surface Mount Techniques, eliminates substrate handling issues for high volume fine pitch production runs. This enhancement may also eliminate the need for expensive bare-board and magazine loaders. Allowing greater flexibility, the AuL2220 allows transport upstream automatically to the pick and place station. The AUL2220 can also be unloaded manually as well.

The AuL2220 is a stand alone, fully automatic, high precision printer with large capacity. It is equipped with Surface Mount Techniques’ Accu-Lign Series 3 auto vision alignment with over 10,000 individual program file storage, and is equipped with adjustable magnetic PCB support, programmable squeegee drive, pressure, stroke and speed. The AuL also features an understencil wiper module (with vacuum), and motorized or programmable conveyor width adjustment. A Pentium/Windows® or Windows NT·™ based single processor controlled operating system offers the simplicity of an interactive point and click graphical user interface. The AuL2220 has a large 20” x 23” print area and will accommodate both cast and welded tubular stencils as well.

The AuL can be linked to the upline equipment via a SMEMA interface, thereby matching the line integration and quick set up requirements for high mix, low, medium & high volume required by most manufacturers today. The AuL features Surface Mount Techniques’ unique four point frame compensation system and is protected by the company’s best-in-industry 2-year warranty.

Surface Mount Techniques is the second largest manufacturer of surface mount printing systems in North America, for more than 20 years providing the highest quality solder and adhesive printing equipment to the electronics industry.
