The ProtoPlace S is an ergonomically designed, semi-automatic pick & place system for the professional assembly of SMD printed circuit board prototypes and small batch projects. The ProtoPlace S quickly assembles SMD boards, with the user controlling each step of the assembly process through an LCD display. Most functions are easily executed from an interface panel with four directional arrows.

A camera system coupled with the display ensures easy and accurate component positioning control, so the ProtoPlace can precisely assemble complex circuits.

Manually guided movements of the ProtoPlace pick and place machine manipulator can be locked in both the X- and Y-directions, and fine adjustments can be performed using micrometer screws. A pneumatic device supports the positioning of the components, eliminating errors and guaranteeing accuracy.

Three different feeders supply the components. An integrated dispenser for solder paste is standard equipment, and the ProtoPlace can be equipped with an additional reworking station.

Key features:
  • Micro-table - The micro-table clamps printed circuit boards as large as 297 mm x 400 mm (11.8” x 16.5”). A fine-adjustment capability and X and Y axis lockdowns make the ProtoPlace ideal for the placement of complex components.
  • LCD Display - Control and monitor the process via the 4-line LCD display.
  • Keyboard - The integrated multifunctional keyboard allows the direct selection of options, fine control of adjustments, and setting precise individuals parameters.
  • Manipulator - The manipulator picks & places components, and soldering with paste, glues and washers. The manipulator easily reaches every feeder (stick and tape feeders, turntable, or palette) by using vacuum and a picking needle. An additional manual control rotates components where needed and manual places components with only the touch of the needle.
  • Dispenser - This external unit dispenses soldering paste, glues, and washers from its mount directly on the manipulator.
  • Air Regulator - The air regulator regulates pressure during dispensing, vacuum during placement, and vacuum during dispensing.
  • Software - Each ProtoPlace includes user-friendly software designed to ease the operation and automation of component placement and paste dispensing.
  • Foot Switch - The integrated foot switch provides additional hands-free mode control to the user.
  • Accessories

  • Motorized Turntable
  • The optional motorized turntable stores individual components in bins, and permits a significantly accelerated picking process. The bins can be labeled with type, value and sign.
  • Feeder Carrier
  • The feeder carrier can hold up to 12 feeders, both tube or tape and reel type.
  • Micro Camera
  • The micro camera mounts directly on the manipulator and feeds a video signal of the process directly to the optional monitor.
  • Monitor
  • The optional monitor, in tandem with the optional micro camera, allows the user to track and control small parts placement very precisely.
  • Tape and Reel Feeders
  • The ProtoPlace S uses tape feeders serving 8mm, 12mm, and 16mm components.
  • Tube Feeders
  • The ProtoPlace S supports stick feeders serving SO8 - SO28, SO8L - SO28L components, as well as PLCC28 - PLCC44 and PLCC52 - PLCC84 components.
