Mascot Clinch

Mascot Clinch – Apex 2020

Do you have problems with the hand assembled content of your production?

Do you use ‘Contact Systems CS-400’ machines for your THT PCB assembly that are failing you and you can’t get support any more?

Robotas Technologies offers a swap-out replacement system called Mascot Clinch that uses state-of-the-art technology and software that runs on the Windows 10 software platform.

With the Mascot Clinch system, once the component has been placed, an automated mechanism under the PCB will then clinch the component legs in any 360-degree direction. The finished lead profile can be set to either 45 degrees or flat to the board.

Mascot systems provide the operator with on screen work instructions and deliver the correct component to the operator at the correct time via intelligent motorized carousels or pick-to-light indication on storage arrays.

Three key Mascot features help to eliminate errors and drive productivity:

Computerized step-by-step work instructions are displayed to the operator.

Motorized carousels automatically present the correct component.

A laser highlights the exact location on the board.

Mascot offers an assured process that makes PCB hand assembly fast, consistent and easy. Mascot also provides images of components, parts or subassemblies for improved process clarity, as well as videos to walk the operator through assembly procedures. Each Mascot station can accommodate up to 370 different components – enough capacity for the largest of boards, or for several different boards with no set up or changeover delays.

Thank you to all our visitors to the Robotas stand at Productronica.

Returning from a successful show, the Robotas team share with you the Mascot and Sigma presentations from the Stand.

During this year’s Productronica, the common discussion points have been around Industry 4.0. implementations, issues and ideas.

The team will share of their thoughts further over the next news post.

Meanwhile, take a closer look at the Sigma and Mascot presentations designed specifically for Productronica.

Multiple Mascots for China Trains

The world’s largest manufacturer of locomotives has placed an order on Robotas Technologies Ltd for a number of Mascot Standalone workstations. CSR (China South Locomotive Group) will use the Mascot systems to speed up the hand assembly of circuit boards used across its extensive range of locomotives and rolling stock products.

CSR placed the Mascot order in mid-December 2014, just days after one of its electric locomotives pulled its payload of carriages over the famous Quinhai-Tibet Pleateau, known internationally as ‘the Roof of the World’ route, travelling 1000km in less than 12 hours to set a new record.

“With CSR pointing to innovation at the heart of its business, it’s no surprise that the corporation is keen to adopt process improvement technologies Like Mascot,” claims Martin Kenicer, Robotas Product Specialist. “We’re confident that the new Mascot workstations will help CSR’s production operators keep up with the speed of its trains!”

The first of the Mascot Standalone workstations will be delivered to CSR this month.
