Key components of the Flex Line include a Heat Stake PWA system, a Functional Test and Laser Marker, a Line Tray Tender, and a Solder Quality Vision Inspection System. IATGlobal was responsible for designing, sourcing, assembling, wiring, and programming each component of this project.
Heat Stake PWA
The Heat Stake PWA system was designed to have an 8 seconds part-to-part cycle time that is Servo controlled. It is tended by two tray tenders and has two systems in order to meet the required cycle time rate of 8 seconds.
The Functional Test and Laser Marker has a cycle time of 12 seconds part-to-part based on LabVIEW and setting cycle times being designed to take less than 20 seconds at a time.
