Surface mounted devices have been processed in the ACD Group since 1989. Production takes place on five assembly lines; with the lines running in two-shift operation (3-shift operation when machining). When a new assembly order is received, the components are first picked in the warehouse, then set up on equipment trolleys and made available for the further production process.
In order to be able to begin with assembly, the corresponding equipment vehicle must be docked and the stencil printer set up. The stencil printer is a fully automatic machine that aligns the printed circuit boards with the stencil, cleans the underside of the stencil and checks the amount of solder paste that has been printed on. After the printed circuit board has been printed and the paste has been inspected, the circuit board is transported to the automatic placement machine. We work among others with the SX series, the latest generation. The machines have linear drives and a digital vision system to ensure high-precision assembly of the components. All of the machines together have a practice-based assembling capacity of around 320,000 cph.
