Essemtec Introduces Fast Tray Changer for Cobra and Paraquda

The new TCQ automatic Tray Changer can replace a component tray in less than five seconds and align it with accuracy better than 50 µm. The 18-bin changer is available for Cobra and Paraquda pick-and-place machines. Essemtec will highlight the new module at the upcoming productronica 2011 exhibition in Munich, Germany.

TCQ from Essemtec is a compact tray changer featuring flexibility, high speed and accuracy.  On average, tray interchange time is less than five seconds and the final position of the tray is reproducible within 50 µm. This is more than sufficient even for the smallest components such as microBGAs.

Trays are stored in a magazine that is equipped with handles and can be replaced quickly. Standard magazines feature 18 or 14 slots, depending on tray thickness. Each slot has room for one standard JEDEC tray; however, the space also can be divided for several smaller trays.

Despite the high exchange speed, TCQ moves each tray carefully and reliably. Speed can be reduced for specific trays that are carrying lightweight components. TCQ is available for Essemtec’s Paraquda and Cobra SMD pick-and-place machines, featuring placement rates up to 21,000 components per hour.

Essemtec will premier the fast TCQ Tray Changer at the upcoming productronica exhibition in Munich, Germany. Visit Essemtec in Hall A3, booth 358.
