1. Component Changeover Table
Up to four component changeover tables may be coupled to the machine. Optionally, a matrix tray changer may be installed at locations 2 or 4.
The component changeover tables are stand-alone mod- ules that can be set up at an external set-up area with feeders. In this way, changes only interrupt the production process for a short time. The chassis runs smoothly and is easy to maneuver. There are pockets for holding set-up list print-outs on both sides of the component changeover table. The operator has un- hindered access to the docu- ments, even during production. The component feeder table has a capacity of up to 15 locations for 30 mm wide feeders. The total capacity with four component changeover tables is thus 180 x 8 mm tracks. Bulk case feeders and vibra- tory stick feeders may be set up in addition to the tape feeders. Dummy feeders are used at unassigned locations to protect the operators. The communication unit sends the necessary voltages and control signals to the feeders. The component feeders are at rest during the placement process, which means that components can be refilled (in sticks, for example) and tapes may be spliced without stopping the machine. An optional component bar- code reader can be used to scan and check the barcodes on the tape reels, thus guar- anteeing that the compo- nents are allocated to the correct tracks.

3. Tape Feeders: Get quote from us!
Only 9 different feeder sizes are needed to feed tapes from 8 mm to 88 mm. Reels are kept in the tape container on the component change- over table. A cutting device automatically cuts the used tape. SIPLACE feeders have short cycle times and high- precision pick-up positions. Even multiple products and small batch sizes are easy to handle since the feeders can be quickly changed over: Both the tape cycle incre- ment and the use of tape materials are variable. SIPLACE feeders are suitable for both paper and plastic tapes. This represents a sig- nificant benefit in terms of both cost and logistics. A signal from the communi- cation unit enables the feed- ers to automatically control the entire feeder sequence, including automatic strip take-up. The S feeders have shorter cycle times and can process tapes with a pocket pitch of 2 mm (8 mm S). The 8 mm S and 12/16 mm S also have a component cover. The feeders can also be used in other SIPLACE placement machines.

4. Bulk case feeder
The SIPLACE bulk case feeder processes bulk cases on two tracks. It feeds rectangular and round, passive compo- nents. The PCB magazines (bulk cases) are simply replaced for refilling - with- out stopping the machine.
The module essentially con- sists of the basic element plus two feeder rails and PCB mag- azines to suit the component type and height. The compo- nents are separated and fed along the rails by compressed air.
The principle of the fixed component pocket has proven most suitable, even when using bulk cases: the vibrations that occur with other placement machine concepts can greatly impair the component quality due to friction, for example.
The stationary component feeder also has significant advantages with stick maga- zines: the universal vibratory stick feeder can be refilled during placement.

5. Dummy Feeders
To ensure that your SIPLACE placement machine runs safely, a feeder must be assigned to every location on the component changeover table. If you do not have enough feeders, then you should use dummy feeders as space holders.
The following dummy feeders may be used:
