Schunk - Finally, Depaneling Machines are Available that are Large Enough

SCHUNK Electronic Solutions is bringing two depaneling machines with large installation spaces onto the market: the SAR-1300-Mono-Smart and the SAR-1700.

SCHUNK Electronic Solutions is bringing two depaneling machines with large installation spaces onto the market: the SAR-1300-Mono-Smart and the SAR-1700. The machines mill and saw individual PCBs from a large PCB panel - the maximum panel size is 600 x 500 millimeters. "Further developments in printed circuit board technology face new challenges for electronics manufacturers and lead to increasing requirements on depaneling machine technology", says Jochen Ehmer, Managing Director of SCHUNK Electronic Solutions. "Larger installation spaces are in demand - such as for separating large entire PCBs or long panels to be milled in strips. We meet this demand with the new models."


Modularity for the Industry 4.0 era

SCHUNK Electronic Solutions is the world's first manufacturer to design modular depaneling machines. The advantage for electronic manufacturers is they can buy a basic version of the machine and then retrofit it later - such as with additional milling modules, a camera system, or a robot arm that takes over the loading and unloading and reduces personnel costs. "The depaneling machines require a low initial investment and grow flexibly along with companies", says Ehmer. "Companies gain future security for the Industry 4.0 era, where you need to economically manage small batch sizes and frequent product changes."

The machines use hardly any more energy than a microwave

Customers benefit from process reliability, low electricity consumption, and short cycle times. The SAR-1300-Mono-Smart achieves separation efficiency of up to four meters per minute, and due to the linear motor axes and modern control technology, the milling accuracy is +/- 0.1 millimeter. The SAR-1700 achieves the milling speed of the SAR-1300-Mono-Smart and also saws with a speed of up to ten meters per minute. Even with this high performance, the machine is saving energy. The power consumption of the SAR 1700 is 800 watts, the SAR 1300 is only 700 watts, which approximately corresponds to a microwave.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
