Versatile equipment portfolio poised to efficiently handle the most complex assembly challenges.

August 13, 2018 – Universal Instruments will exhibit on Booth IM80 at the NEPCON South China trade show in Shenzhen, China on August 28–30. Universal’s booth will feature solutions with the versatility to address the growing range of automation requirements across the contemporary electronics manufacturing landscape. The FuzionOF™ Platform places a full range of components from surface mount to pin-in-paste and all odd parts in between. The Uflex™ automation platform delivers ultimate flexibility for odd-form insertion, mechanical back-end assembly and applications requiring dispensing, screw driving, labeling and more.

FuzionOF is the fastest automation platform, placing a full range of standard surface mount and non-traditional components from passives up to 150mm square and 33mm tall, with throughputs up to 16,500 cph. With the most complete range of component handling and input types, a wide variety of standard tooling, and custom design and implementation services, FuzionOF addresses virtually any odd-form application.

Uflex delivers exceptional cost performance and is easily reconfigured and integrated for a wide range of applications, including axial and radiaI insertion. It handles large substrates up to 630mm x 500mm within a footprint of only 1.0m x 1.7m. Uflex is ideal for extreme odd-form requirements, with the ability to insert components up to 60mm tall and up to .45kg in weight. It supports up to four high-speed vacuum spindles or three high-speed pneumatic grippers. Uflex offers time to market and quality improvements when replacing manual processes, as well superior adaptability and investment protection benefits versus custom cells.

“Applications such as large server boards are very complex and require everything from surface mount to pin-through-hole and press-fit placements,” said Universal Instruments Vice President of Marketing, Glenn Farris. “This means the solution provider must not only have the equipment portfolio to handle this diversity, but also the applications expertise and tooling capabilities to create a comprehensive solution – there’s a lot that goes into building a single product,” continued Farris. “This is where we offer competitive advantage to our customers, providing complete solutions and the ability to conquer their unique automation challenges.”
