The Fox Pack consists of the starter modules FOX1 and FOX2, covering multifunctional applications with their jetting and dispensing heads. In addition, there is now the new module FOX4 which redefines the high-performance assembly in this sector.
Customers can, for example, start directly with a whole production line and a throughput of 49’600 cph/h without missing the high-flex prototype functions or the jetting of solder paste and glue. It’s also possible to start with a FOX1 and to extend the production in any direction over the lifetime of the system; this gives investment security.
FOX4 reaches an optimal speed of 18’800 cph/h and stated IPC speed of 16’100 cph/h. This was made possible thanks to the high-speed double linear motors, four mounting heads and a new digital high-speed double camera system. Four components, up to 12mm, are measured in parallel and the machine can also processes components up to 80 x 80mm and 25 mm height (optional). In the cell version 200 x 8mm feeders can be placed, while the line version take up to 140 feeders. In addition, making space for trays without impacting the number of the feeder positions is possible utilising the optional tray slider.
Furthermore, electrical verification of components is now available too. Finally, there’s also a new cleanroom cover and, thanks to the new software version 23, FOX1 and 2 now reach a 20% higher performance against the stated ICP.
At SMT Nuremberg Essemtec will present a line comprising of FOX2 and FOX4. The demonstration will include solder paste jetting, placement of the whole component range, 260 x 8mm feeder positions plus trays and 30’800 cph/h optimal speed – and all on just a two square meter foot print!
