New application within Surface Mount Technology (SMT) are driven by technological innovations and next generation releases.
These next generation products are becoming more and more intelligent, diverse and efficient. As a consequence, the associated product BOM (Bill of Materials) and parts diversity increases in scope. This increase in parts count and diversity per product drives the necessity for higher feeder density per Pick-and-Place (P&Ps) machine.
This feeder density plays an important role in determining the potential of an SMT production lines to fulfill customer needs without resulting in an excess or ‘over capacity’ situation. Constructing a SMT production line based on the requirement of feeder input vs. CPH (components per hour) increases the capital equipment cost of the Pick-and-Place segment of the line. With a larger percentage of the P&P equipment cost associated to CPH rather than the amount of feeder inputs available at the machine level, in essence end users pay more for CPH vs. feeder inputs. With current and future consumer demands for ever increasing product intelligence this creates an under achieving or underutilized capacity production line for manufacturers.
A balance between machine feeder inputs needed for product diversity and CPH to meet customer required volumes is essential for the highest efficiency production lines.
One way to increase the feeder machine density is to utilize the thinnest feeder possible. Utilizing a single input feeder increases ease of use and adds the highest level of flexibility to solve the most diverse products now and in the future. K&S is introducing a SF Feeder, which has industries smallest width.
