We have some of the very latest pick and place equipment, capable of placing components from 01005 up to 100x100mm. We also have manual placement facilities for prototype and small batch quantities and vapour phase reflow.
Komax Kappa 310 Cut & Strip Machine
The Kappa 310 is an automatic, ultra-fast and reliable, wire cutting and stripping machine for high production output.
Cropmatic Lead Cutting Machine
Used in through-hole production, 5000 pins firmly hold all components onto a board while spring loaded, serrated cutters shear all the leads underneath to an equal length.
ESE US-2000X Automatic Stencil Printer with vision
The ESE US-2000X precisely aligns and supports a PCB against a laser cut stencil allowing a squeegee to evenly distribute solder paste onto the board. A vision system then inspects paste accuracy.
Essemtec Puma Fully Automatic Pick & Place
Used to place surface-mount components onto a PCB, the Puma is state of the art technology when it comes to highspeed Pick-and-Place.
BLC509 Vapour Phase Reflow Oven
Offering much better control and stability over traditional reflow soldering, the BLC509’s vapour phase process heats the PCB in the vapour of boiling Galden, an inert liquid which is ideal for the wetting of lead-free alloys without risk of oxidation or damage from high temperature differences.
CMS-400 Blundell Wave Solder Machine
Used to solder through-hole components to a PBC, the CMS-400 enables many boards to be processed in little time by passing each board over a wave of molten solder, soldering the components to the board.
Scienscope CC-HDMI-CD1 Inspection system
A high-definition microscope camera used to inspect components and joints.
Vision Engineering Mantis
A powerful stereo microscope used to inspect circuit boards.
Fritsch LM901 Manual Pick & Place System
Used for prototyping, small-series production or placement of components not suitable for automatic pick-and-place machines. The LM901 allows for fatigue free, accurate work due to its smooth-running assembly.
Various Component Forming, Stripping and Crimping Machines
Pace & Ersa Soldering Irons & Re-work stations
Pillarhouse Jade MKII Selective Soldering System
Meets the needs of the small/medium batch manufacturer who requires high levels of production flexibility, the Jade MKll entry-level system offers uncompromised selective soldering quality. The Jade MKII is a hand load system, incorporating a universally adjustable tooling carrier capable of accommodating PCB’s or pallets up to 457 x 508mm. The patented Drop-Jet design fluxer offers quick and effective flushing of the pressurised flux chamber. This helps to keep maintenance levels to a minimum whilst enabling use of higher solid content fluxes as well as water-soluble fluxes.
