Designed primarily for pre and post inline AOI/ICT configurations, the unit provides an effective automated buffering system for PCB’s.
The unit has 3 modes of operation:
Boards are transferred between up and downstream with no buffering undertaken.
When positioned downstream of the tester, boards are transferred onto the unit and buffered if the signal status of the board is fail. Boards may then be manually removed by the operator whilst the unit is in operation. Passed boards are transferred downstream to the next process machine. When positioned upstream of the tester, boards are transferred onto the unit from the upstream process and transferred into the ‘tester’. Should natural of the boards upstream seize, then the buffer will index down to locate any boards that have been manually placed into the unit following rework.
Boards are transferred between up and downstream on demand. Should the downstream unit be unable to receive further board supply then the boards are buffered until such time that the downstream machine becomes available. When used in this mode the unit may be sited between any process machines in the production line.
Available in Single and Dual lane versions.
