Transporting & Loading

Typical handling functions are transporting and moving PCBs and products as well as the change of the orientation in the room to vertical and horizontal level (traffic control). All stations fulfill an important function as connecting link between various components within a production line.

  • Transporting
  • Loading and unloading
  • Buffering
  • Rotating
  • Turning
  • Vertical transfer
  • Horizontal transfer
  • Personnel passages

The handling stations are used in SMD lines, assembly and test lines.
The combination of the transport widths, magazine types and interfaces is customer-specific, and components, e.g. soldering processes or vision system can be integrated as required.

Decisive advantages with regard to economic efficiency and flexibility result from splitting the total board handling program into two series for different PCB dimensions:
The M-series is suitable for small PCBs and therefore especially space-saving and cost-efficient (length 100-330mm, width 50-260mm) . The L-series for PCBs to 500x500 mm covers all usual sizes.
