Conveyors transfer the PCB through an SMT assembly line and most PCB assembly processes.

Most PCB conveyors use edge belts for conveyance. The belts often have a 3mm or less footprint on the edge of the PCB. Although much less common, other types of PCB conveyors include roller chain and flat belt conveyors. A fully automated SMT line often includes the following conveyors:

  • Destacker or Magazine Handler to load the line with PCBs
  • PCB transfer conveyors (multiple) to transfer PCBs from one machine to the next
  • Gates (either shuttle or lift) to create an access point to the other side of the SMT line
  • FIFO Buffers store PCBs when an upline process is not accepting PCBs,
  • Diverters rotate a PCB for a change in transfer direction while Flips (Inverters) swap the top side of a PCB
  • Workstations are designed to provide a comfortable and functional area for manual intervention. (i.e. inspection, hand assembly, etc.)
  • Magazine handlers or roller chain conveyors are used to collect PCBs from the process line

Most conveyors are PLC controlled and use off-the-shelf components, so spare parts are usually available from many 3rd party sources.

Some common brands for PCB Conveyors include:

JOT, Conveyor Tech, Simplimatic, Nutek, FlexLink, Asys, and Universal

All brands have their strengths and limitations.  Be sure to consult with a highly experienced Capital Equipment Exchange Sales Consultant to convey your needs.  We can guide you to your best solution.
