There is a big difference between placement machines and labeling machines. The mounter is mainly used to mount SMT components on the circuit board. Labeling machines are used in the packaging industry to mark products. Their characteristics are described below.
The placement machine is SMT, which is a special equipment for surface assembly technology, also known as "mounting machine" and "Surface Mount System". SMT mounter machine is used to achieve high-speed, high-precision placement of components equipment, which is the key and complex equipment in the production of the entire SMI. SMT mounter machine is the placement equipment used in the production of SMT. Nowadays, SMT mounter machine has developed from low-speed mechanical mounter to high-speed optical mounter, and it is developing towards multi-function, flexible connection and modularization. In the SMT production line, it is configured after the glue dispenser or the solder paste printer, and it is a kind of equipment that accurately places the surface mount components on the PCB pads by moving the placement head. It is divided into two types: manual and fully automatic. Generally speaking, it is a machine used to mount pin chip electronic components on the circuit board.
Labeling machine (Labeller) is a device for sticking rolls of self-adhesive paper labels (paper or metal foil) on PCBs, products or specified packaging. The labeling machine is an indispensable part of modern packaging. At present, the types of production labeling machines are gradually increasing, and the technical level has also been greatly improved. It has moved from the backward situation of manual and semi-automatic labeling to the pattern of automatic high-speed labeling machines occupying the vast market.
The above is the difference between the placement machine and the labeling machine.
