Essemtec Presents Interactive LED Light Panels at Productronica 2011

Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronics, will present the innovative LED light panel of Sensavo at booth A3.358 during productronica 2011. The German specialist for LED lighting assembles its PCBs on Essemtec’s highly flexible SMD assembly line.

Sensavo is a specialist for interactive light art. The objects react to different environmental influences such as movement, acoustic events or brightness changes.

The newest innovation in regard to interactive light panels is FLUX 02, which integrates capacitive sensors that create a colored light pattern according to changes in distance. Dynamic, interactive lighting adds another level to a room — humans are not just observers, they can even interact with the light.

The interactive light panels work completely independently with no need for any other external equipment. They are ready to operate directly after being powered on and they self-calibrate. The FLUX-System consists of single panels. Each panel measures 500 x 500 mm and can be expanded by simply connecting the panels to each other.

Customer-specific solutions and exceptional designs require a high degree of flexibility and a quick reaction time. Flexibility is especially important in electronics manufacturing and LED assembly applications. Therefore, Sensavo has assembled its PCBs at Essemtec’s test-track in Aesch. The automatic assembly line consists of an automatic SMD pick-and-place from the FLX series, an SP004 semiautomatic printer and an RO400FC full convection reflow oven.

The FLX is the best-selling flexible SMD pick-and-place system. It offers an extraordinary application range, ideal for high-mix production. It is ideal for special components, such as Feuerherdt GmbH’s contact springs, which can be assembled automatically. It features easy programming and set up as well as intelligent, programmable feeders (up to 310) that can be exchanged during operation.

The FLX2011 pick-and-place is a dispensing machine as well. The assembly head is expandable with two metering valves and can dispense two different liquids. Different dispensing valves can be installed, such as micro-jet valves, screw valves and time-pressure valves.

Visit Sensavo at Essemtec’s booth A3.358 at productronica and become enchanted by this new, innovative concept. Mr. Benjamin Piltz from Sensavo will be present for specific technical questions.
