When automatic production is carried out in the workshop, the size of components affects the degree of full automation. If the components are extremely high or heavy, the manufacturer has to operate manually.
Uflex, a new generation of flexible automation platform of universal instruments, further breaks through the boundary of size components and can cope with the maximum size of components, with an area of 127 mm x 127 mm and up to 100 mm. Yes, it’s up to 100 mm and weighs up to 450 grams. In other words, uflex can easily handle electrolytic capacitors up to 56 mm and transformers weighing 415 grams.
Uflex is equipped with three or four mechanical arms. As long as the tools at its end are replaced, it can meet the needs of different production processes. Manufacturers do not have to find a suitable platform for a single process, or customize the most suitable platform from equipment suppliers.
Product application of uflex
The design of uflex is mainly aimed at components above medium size that need visual recognition. It is especially suitable for products with large quantity and few samples (ordinary substrate is the best), multi panel, tape or tube or pallet packaging, pin to through hole ratio of 0.6mm and hard pins.
Therefore, uflex is particularly suitable for the following components: large electrolytic capacitors, box capacitors, active resistors, relays, transformers / coils and connectors.
As for the actual product application, it includes: driving board and light strip board of low-voltage power supply; Washing machine / dryer control board, air conditioning control board, power board, ballast, mobile phone charger, etc. in white appliances.
In OEM / EMS factories, uflex can replace the manual assembly line or semi-automatic assembly workstation from operators to PCB plug-ins by manually inserting components and connectors before wave soldering.
Uflex completely replaces manual operation and brings the following benefits to the manufacturer:
- The output can be increased up to four times, and the speed can be kept unchanged for different products
- Can reduce plug-in costs by up to 95%
- In the investment return period, the operating cost is reduced by more than 70%, and the investment return period is less than 2 years
- 60% reduction in floor area (capacity: 1 uflex is equivalent to 4 skilled workers)
- Reduce capacity cost per unit area by more than 40% (CPH / m2)
- Extraordinary quality level (one pass rate): 99% vs. 95% FPY
