The sole purpose of the high speed SMT modular placement system ii-A2 is to bring balance to the SMT assembly line. Equipped with a pair of high-speed Pulsar pipette heads, this machine acts as a chipshooter to take on the workload from other Europlacer machines in the line.
With placement speeds up to 50,000cph, the ii-A2 levels up the line by providing a resource that optimizes the placement process while maximizing the performance and throughput of Europlacer machines downstream. It has a feeder capacity of 164 x 8mm positions and handles components from 01005 profiles to 13mm x 13mm x 7mm dimensions – all in a compact module footprint.
The high speed SMT modular placement system ii-A2 is designed to deliver fast, fully intelligent and highly integrated productivity.
ii-A2 is fully compatible with all relevant atom platform innovations and options, and with all Europlacer intelligent feeder technologies. It features Europlacer’s patented intelligent conveyor with board stops under full software control. Despite the compact module format, ii-A2 can handle boards up to one meter (39 inches) in length.

Dutch manufacturer Unitron Group has selected Europlacer’s flexible iineo platform as the centrepiece of a new SMT assembly line located at its production facility in IJzendijke, South West Holland. The company chose the iineo+ placement machine after a detailed comparison of equipment vendors and support levels across the market. Having initially considered outsourcing its electronics manufacturing while maintaining its older SMT line, Unitron took a strategic decision to keep the assembly process…
