Osnitron GmbH opts for AIMEXIIIc placement machine from FUJI
Electronics service provider sets on advantages such as placement of a large number of parts with a single head
Kelsterbach, November 30, 2021 – Die FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION GmbH (www.fuji-euro.de), specialist for electronic placement machines, sums up its trade show appearance at “productronica 2021” positively. Despite significantly lower visitor numbers, participation was worthwhile for the company. Among other things, FUJI was able to sign a new contract at the trade show: Osnitron GmbH, an electronics service provider, has chosen the AIMEXIIIc pick-and-place machine with a Single Robot DX head. One advantage: placement of a large number of parts is thus possible with a single head.
“Compared to our participation at productronica 2019, the number of visitors at our booth decreased by approximately 41 percent. This is due to the significantly lower visitor numbers overall. Nevertheless, based on an first interim evaluation, it looks as if this will not have a major impact on the number of resulting projects,” explains Stefan Janssen, member of the management board of FUJI EUROPE CORPORATION GmbH.
Osnitron GmbH, for example, made its decision for the AIMEXIIIc with a Single Robot DX head at the trade show. The company has been a FUJI customer since 2013 and so far owned an AIMEX pick-and-place machine. With the use of the new AIMEXIIIc pick-and-place machine, Osnitron is expanding its scope of action.
Flexible adjustment options for the placement heads during production
One of the company’s specialties is the manual placement of printed circuit boards. “In the electronics industry, there is a constant need to meet the growing demands in terms of increasing variance, batch size 1 and much more. The expandable AIMEXIIIc supports flexible production with a variable mix of high placement performance and versatile product mix with small batch sizes,” explains Mario Petrosevec, Managing Director of Osnitron GmbH.
The Single-Robot DX head used enables the placement of a wide range of parts with a single head, such as parts as small as 0.3 x 0.15 mm, BGAs, large connectors and 5G sub-boards. This is possible because the head can automatically switch between different types of mini turrets during placement. The head can apply a maximum pressure of 98 Newtons and optionally set glue dots. Various configurations of single or dual lane transport as well as with single or double robot are available.
“With the use of the new machine, we have a high degree of flexibility for the increasingly complex and variant requirements in our industry,” explains Mario Petrosevec.
