Highly Flexible Placer from Essemtec
Cobra SMD pick-and-place.
Aesch, Switzerland — Essemtec's Cobra is described as the first machine to combine the advantages of a highly flexible placement machine — 240 feeder slots, allowing changeover during operation — with the throughput of an 8-axes assembly machine (IPC-9859: 20,000 cph). Four components are picked up simultaneously and each axis can assemble all components from 01005 up to 80 x 70mm.

The machine operates using ePlace, the company's intuitive user interface from Essemtec. According to the company, ePlace makes programming of complex machines easy and actively prevents false inputs. The software reduces training time as well as operation and programming costs, and it increases the productivity of the machine and the quality of the manufactured products.
