Application of industrial robots in PCB industry

- Aug 06, 2016-

    Industrial robots are mainly used in automobile manufacturing industry, in the automobile production process complete welding, assembly, transportation, spraying and other work, these aspects of the robot's accuracy, speed requirements are not high. But the PCB industry is relatively complex, the application of the robot in the PCB industry is mainly reflected in the process of the up and down, flip, sorting, positioning and testing functions, to replace artificial With PCB plate processing equipment and testing equipment operation. Because of the diversity and complexity of PCB, single plate, double plate, multilayer board, flexible plate, soft and hard combination board, orifice plate and the porous plate etc., resulting in the front-end demands more; and the positioning accuracy requirements and demands of working rhythm, so in the application of industrial robots of robot technology and integration technology to Higher demand. After nearly two years of exploration and practice in the industry, and strive to help customers solve problems, meet customer needs, but also accumulated experience in the industry. At present, for the PCB industry has a lot of working procedure, we have a mature solution, such as AOI, exposure machine, drilling target drone (ope, XZ), silver paste filling hole, writing ink, palm pre stack, finished loading disk, OSP,Product cleaning, DOME film anti capsule, LCD assembly, etc..


    As with the automobile industry and manufacturing industry, industrial robots in the PCB industry to replace artificial enterprises to bring more potential.

1, reduce labor, plus work rhythm, improve work efficiency. Robot can achieve a higher speed of repetitive operation, can be higher than the work of the rhythm of the work, and bring the work efficiency and labor costs, reduce labor costs, management costs.

2, improve operation accuracy, improve product quality. Robot can use programming and visual system, realize the positioning and repeat accuracy, effectively improve the quality of the product.

3. To avoid the potential threat to the health and safety of workers, the work environment has been invested in the whole environment.

4, reduce the impact of repeated, boring process on the state of the workers and the quality of the efficiency and quality of the decline and accident rate;

5, optimize the operation process, reduce the working space.

6, effectively reduce the material consumption rate.

7, can be 24 hours of operation and operation in the black light environment;

8, can make the manufacturing process flexible. PCB industry in the future will be more and more small quantities of orders, the use of industrial robots can greatly enhance the production of flexible, rapid delivery of orders.

9, brand image and reputation of the upgrade. Industrial robot application in PCB Factory automation level to further enhance and promote product quality, production efficiency, cost control, response capability, capacity and small batch customization and progress, will greatly enhance the plant in the industry's overall strength.


    Future applications of industrial robots in the PCB industry will now be the following trends:

1, from single station or single line applications, to multi line applications. Existing PCB enterprises to comprehensive introduction of robot automation production is relatively difficult, need to invest a lot of money for reconstruction, but can have a single station and single line were the transformation step by step, to be made after the effect is obvious, and then gradually expand the scope of application.

2, from the simple robot application to other intelligent equipment such as the combination of AGV and other applications. Most of the material transfer between the existing process production line is manual operation, which can be distributed to achieve the orderly transfer of the material with the robot and AGV.

3, the existing plant to the local application, the new plant construction will do the overall planning, direct import of the robot and the application of AGV.

4, through the combination of industrial robots and Internet of things, will make the manufacturing process more intelligent and flexible.
