How to choose the suction nozzle of the pick n place machine? Let's take a look together!
The shape of the suction nozzle can be square hole, round tube, V groove and so on. Custom-made pick n place machine suction nozzles generally select a flat suction point according to the shape of the material. Some are made of elongated suction nozzles, which are drawn into the groove plane to suck, some are made into a zigzag shape according to the edge of the material, and some are flat on both ends but the middle is not flat, so a bridge must be built. Some materials are sticky and are not easy to discharge, you need to make some grooves in the suction nozzle wall of the pick n place machine, or make a glue head.
(1) Glue suction nozzle
When the surface of the material is uneven or the material is sticky, glue suction nozzle is suitable for the pick n place machine, but the service life of it is not long. It is recommended to buy more glue suction nozzles for later use. When they are worn, you can directly change them by yourself.
(2) Tungsten steel suction nozzle
Tungsten steel suction nozzle is strong and durable, but easy to turn white, friends who are not afraid of trouble, or newcomers to the SMT pick and place machine can choose the tungsten steel suction nozzle. If it becomes white, use an oil-based pen, and you can continue to use it.
(3) Diamond steel suction nozzle
It is strong, easy to use, and never blanching, but it is very expensive and not cost-effective.
(4) Ceramic suction nozzle
Ceramic suction nozzle never turns white, but it is brittle and easy to break. Careful use can avoid or reduce the occurrence of breakage.
For standard materials, the suction nozzle specifications are basically fixed. If some materials are neither big nor small with strange shapes, you need to customize the suction nozzle of the pick n place machine.
