For some odd form components, standard vacuum placement nozzles are not acceptable. For the most complicated components, we can design custom mechanical grippers. These gripper nozzles offer pneumatically activated jaws for lateral gripping of SMT components. Each nozzle is specifically designed to match the profile and shape of the component to ensure proper placement on the board.

Samples of the component to be placed are helpful in nozzle design and testing. We generally require approximately 4-6 inches of components in tape.
Note: If for any reason the components are not available yet, we are normally able to develop a solution from a detailed drawing of the component.
