Selective Conformal Coating UV PCB Smart Inspection Conveyor

PCB Inspection Conveyor Description

Manual/Visual PCB Smart Inspection Conveyor for use between other assembly operations. ETS Circuit Assembly Inspection Conveyors are constructed using the same modular, steel frame design as our other PCB Handling Systems. PCB Inspection Conveyors can be fitted with UV or Task lighting, magnification, convenience power outlets, parts bins, etc to meet customer requirements. SMEMA Compliant, Ergonomic and can be used in pass-through mode as a linking conveyor. Printed Circuit Board Transport, Buffer, Inspection and Assembly Conveyor. The Circuit Assembly enters the Inspection Conveyor from the previous machine (such as the selective conformal coating, underfill or fluid dispensing machine) and is conveyed to the inspection/assembly area. If inspection or manual assembly work is not required (pass-through mode), the smart conveyor passes the PCB to the next machine, or buffers it until a SMEMA “Ready Signal” is received from the downline equipment.

What is a Smart Conveyor?

A conveyor where speed is exactly matched to upline and downline machines. The conveyor knows how and when to receive a product from the previous machine at the correct speed, knows how to handle the product while on the conveyor, knows how to transfer the product to the next machine at the right speed, and finally knows when the task is completed.

For example: coating workcell offloads at high speed, smart conveyor matches speed and accepts product then slows down to match conveyor speed of curing oven.
