Applied Cost Savings
The competitive nature of today’s markets requires continual improvement and cost savings in any production process. All of our Insertion Machines can be supplied with a rotary insertion finger that can apply products at different angles without decreasing the insertion rate. This eliminates costly lost production time associated with rotating the PCB. Product specific tooling is provided in tooling packs that can easily be changed from one product to another. This can greatly reduce initial capital expenditure while reducing the time associated with product change out.
Today’s most demanding production operations require equipment that
meets design specifications and assures end product quality. Southern Machinery
Connectivity Insertion Machines are able to use electrical continuity or dis-
crete pin penetration sensing. This gives the machines the ability to assure
that each product was correctly inserted in the PCB and remained there
in real time. There is no additional quality check step required and all QC
data can be stored via the system control for 100% future traceability.
The upper level machines can be equipped with insertion force monitor-
ing to provide an even higher degree of quality assurance as requested
specially in automotive applications.
The Insertion Machines are also designed to provide a great deal of flexi-
bility to meet your production needs of today and tomorrow. Products from
Southern Machinery Connectivity and other manufacturers can be applied to meet your full
range of production requirements. Each product is applied by a specific
“quick change” product tool pack that minimizes initial cost while maxi-
mizing platform capabilities. Finally, most of the machines can be sup-
plied with more than one insertion head to increase the number of prod-
ucts that can be applied in a single machine.[/two_col_50_50_col2]
