Pick & Place

Alpha has a robust knowledge of placing surfacemount components and take on many challenging designs. Our surfacemount automated pick and place production cell consists of a Speedprint SP200 solder paste machine along with Genesis 58 solder stencils. Our pick and place machine is a Quad QSP-2Plus which is duel headed with a total of 8 suction nozzles. It can hold up to 144x8mm component feeders and our standard hot air reflow is a Seho Flowstar 4036 1.7, 8 zone, with a max. width of 350mm. We also have the option of Infrared reflow by using our UniFab Quantum 30 which has a max. width of 260mm.

For inspection we use a mix of manual, ‘Supereyes’ magnification and Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) machine Mirtec MV-2BTL.

We are ISO 9001:2008 approved and all our client products are assembled and inspected to meet the industry standard IPC-A-610 prior to dispatch.
