Problem: Most chip mounters are restricted by the speed of the mechanised pick and place system. Traditional pneumatic actuators have a short life-span, high failure rate, and can suffer from a lack of precision.
Solution: SMAC LAL-90 actuator is able to operate at 10 parts per second, with the up or sown stroke, stop to stop, made in 30 milliseconds. The actuator is capable of high force and high acceleration. To place a chip, the actuator rod moves down, compressing a spring-loaded nozzle. The solution operates with high g-force, fast setting tome, 20 micron overshoot/undershoot. The separately programmable PID servo parameters for down stroke and for up stroke.
