The Millennium V3 Loader / Unloader line had been develop to be used in mid-sized and high end PCB shops where the PCB are very sensitive to human manipulation. The Millenniums are equipped with a 6 axis robot arm capable to move at high speed with extremely high accuracy. This loaders are equipped with and automatic adjustment of the suction gripper to avoid human intervention. The Millennium Unloader will measure all panels when entering into the unloader conveyor and the suction cup gripper will be adjusted to the panel size on the fly avoiding the need of manual intervention. More over the unique alignment system installed in the Millenniums will detect the panels located on the conveyor and will precisely pick up the panels without the need of any mechanical centring device. This will eliminate all frictions in between the conveyor rollers and the PCB.
All Millenniums can operate with or without plastic interleave by the activation of the function, additionally to this the Millennium Unloader counts with a buffer station used to place panels when the operator is exchanging the L rack, this offers the possibility to run the horizontal lines without the need to stop when an L rack is full. The main concept behind the Millenniums is to Load and Unload constantly any horizontal line with any kind of panel size or thickness without the need to stop in between jobs.
The Millennium Loader can be equipped with an automatic panel size recognition, the L rack can be loaded with different panel sizes, and the system will identify the height of each panel and will adjust the suction cups accordingly. Additionally to this the loader can be equipped with a touchless automatic centring or decentring device.
