Hanwha Techwin Automation Americas, formerly Samsung C&T Automation, received two 2020 GLOBAL Technology Awards in the categories of Placement – low/med volume and Best Product Asia for its new Decan S1. The awards were announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020.
The Decan S1 next-generation mid-speed chip mounter provides the optimal productivity for batch production, while improving actual productivity and placement quality, and reducing loss rates.
With a placement speed of 47,000 Cph and accuracy of ±28μm microns, the Decan S1 improves the placement speed of odd-shape components by 25 percent. Additionally, the system improves the simultaneous pick-up rate by arranging pocket positions automatically through communication between the machine and feeder.
The competitively priced Decan S1 features a closed-loop process that makes the system the industry’s most competitive price-to-performance mid-speed mounter for NPI and volume production applications. The system maintains placement accuracy by performing automatic calibration during production. Nozzle center recognition improves pick-and-place reliability of smaller parts such as 03015s.
With the highest performance among mounters in its class, the Decan S1 accommodates PCBs up to 510 x 510mm (standard) / 1500 x 460mm (option), with the ability to produce PCBs up to 1,500mm(L) x 460mm(W) in size.
The GLOBAL Technology Awards have recognized the very best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries since 2005. The prestigious awards contest has been bringing together the global SMT and advanced packaging industry in a celebration of the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving our industry forward.
