i2ES 2640

i2ES 2640 is an automatic machine for insertion of DIL style strip of contacts onto hybrid circuits and PCB.

This unit, integrated into an assembly line, works automatically. An X-Y robot (not supplied) places a substrate onto machine insertion nest and start insertion cycle with commands sent through a dedicated interface. At cycle completion, a signal instructs the X-Y robot that the product is ready for unloading.


The machine is very simple to use and operator has a minimum of mechanical adjustments. The man/machine interface software essentially does it all. Operator console has a 7 inch touch color graphic display and Ethernet link to allow (with included software) remote supervision and servicing of machine.

All production parameters (substrate length, unwanted lead cut configuration, insertion depth, pitch, etc.) may be changed at the console or from remote (network) PC. All information may be stored in internal memory (16GB USB key) as well as on company servers.
