From loaders to unloaders, printers, mounters and ovens, Hawker Richardson can supply and commission your whole SMT production line. As manufacturers in Australia are realising the benefits of bringing their SMT lines back inhouse, demand is growing for total line solutions from one supplier. There are several benefits to this including but not limited to:
To look at some of the solutions available, start browsing below to see what inline systems can work for you.
From automatic loader/unloader to inspection conveyors, the Nutek brand is not only known for great quality, but they work brilliantly as an inline solutions and configurable with Yamaha solutions and ovens from Heller.
Inline stencil printers from Yamaha and other brands provide accurate printing of your boards from the get-go. Not only do the Yamaha printers provide longevity and reliability, but they can also be configured with a stencil printer inspection (SPI) so you can be reassured you are getting the best out of your solution.
There are several inline mounters available and some of the newer mounters are able to provide additional flexibility where they’re designed with multiple heads, such as the Yamaha YRM20. Whether you’re looking for speed with the super high-speed rotary RM head, general-purpose with in-line HM head or for odd-shaped components there’s the in-line FM (flexible-multi head).
Like the other systems in your SMT line, ovens can be crucial and making sure you have the right solution can make the difference between ensuring your boards have no voids and no defects such as tombstoning and your boards being rejected at the last hurdle.
Recent oven designs such as the MK7 from Heller incorporate skins with reduced heat and also require 20% less electricity to operate, making a difference to your total line solution and your triple bottom line!
Strategically placing automated inspection solutions along your total line solution strengthens your ability to control the quality of your boards proactively, minimising waste and ensuring you benefit from repeatability.
Whether you want to incorporate a stencil printer inspection (SPI) solution after your printer, and / or an automated optical inspection (AOI) after your mounter or oven, it could provide a failsafe to ensure your boards are produced with optimum repeatability, especially if your organisation requires a wide range of boards to be produced from the one line!
