Elite Feeder Solutions introduce the 30 mm
Slimline Label Feeder at SMT/Hybrid/Packaging 2016

Elite Feeder Solutions, a provider of specialist feeders for the SMT and robotics industries, introduce its new 30 mm Slimline Label Feeder that provides 50 percent space saving in a pick-and place-system. The system was displayed at the SMT/Hybrid/Packaging show, in April 2016, at the Messe in Nuremberg, Germany.

Label feeders typically have a width of around 60 mm. However, most of the labels used in electronics production are very small: maximum 9x9 mm. The space in the pick-and-place system is valuable; therefore, why occupy more of it than absolutely necessary?

Elite Feeder Solutions now provides the answer: a label feeder with only 30 mm width and additional key functionalities:

§ Teach-In function: The label length can easily be taught and adjusted as required. § Counter: The Feeder counts the transported labels. § Adjustable failure indicator: The user defines after how many undetected labels the feeder should change over to the error mode. § Selectable trigger: Using a light sensor, manually or by the pick-and-place machine. § Adjustable speed: The transport speed is freely selectable.

Furthermore, a perfectly designed guide enables threading of the labels intuitively and quickly.  The empty liner material is collected in a waste box, and can be taken off easily without stopping the pick-and-place machine.

The Slimline Label Feeder currently is available for ASM, Fuji and Panasonic pick-and-place systems, with additional interfaces in progress.
