Eutect further improves intelligent wire feeder SWF

Eutect GmbH further developed and optimized its Sensitive Wire Feeder (SWF). The world’s only patented intelligent wire feeder can be used in conjunction with a laser (LL), iron (KL) or induction (IL) system for soldering assemblies. As part of its continuous product development, the Swabian soldering specialist is now presenting a new development version of the successful product.

“The SWF is one of our best-selling modules. Not only do we use the SWF in our special soldering systems for the electronics industry, but we are also increasingly selling the module itself to other assembly system providers, for integration into their systems,” explains Matthias Fehrenbach, Managing Director of Eutect GmbH, and continues, “For this reason, we are continuously optimizing the SWF. The current adjustments include a number of measures that once again raise the SWF to a new level.”

For one thing, the drive of the SWF is now shielded by a metal cover, which improved EMC compatibility. Furthermore, a new signal filter software has been added to the module. Thanks to these measures, the new generation of the SWF achieves even more precise measuring accuracy and stability during wire feed. In addition, the weight of the overall module has been reduced by 11%, allowing the SWF to be moved more dynamically when integrated on a robot arm. “We can thus further optimize cycle times. The overall design reduces the time required for the robot arm to settle, which also allows us to use a less expensive robot for select projects,” Fehrenbach elaborates.

Another adaptation optimizes integration in robot applications. For example, the metal spool that guides the wire from the wire roll dispenser to the SWF has been replaced by a tube of lower weight, which means that the wire roll can now be integrated very flexibly in the production cell. Thus, maximum flexibility as well as a reduction of the required space are achieved. The flexible mounting of the solder wire roll results in a weight saving of up to 1.3 kg when using a full reel, which corresponds to a reduction of approx. 50% compared to the previous weight.

Service and changeover friendliness were also taken into account in the optimization measures. For example, the sheet metal covers of the wire feeder housing can be removed without tools. The covers can now be removed easily and simply, as they are held in place by a magnetic mechanism without screws. It also is easier now to change between different wire diameters. Using simple sheet metal covers allows better accessibility of the diameter setting on the control wheel and encoder wheel swing arm. New and more variable SWF configurations, as well as the use of solenoids or spring packs, and a wire insertion aid supported and controlled by the force sensor also assist the operator. By pressing on the drive housing of the SWF, the wire is automatically fed, or retracted, without the operator having to execute a command within the software via the HMI. Simply by selecting the wire change via the HMI, the module enters that mode, allowing for a quick and easy changeover. “This allows us to save valuable time,” says Fehrenbach.

Eutect introduces service cart for wave soldering modules

To simplify maintenance and servicing of wave soldering modules, Eutect GmbH offers a versatile service cart designed for use directly on the machine. Each service cart is tailored to specific customer modules.

The service cart introduced here is suitable for all mini wave soldering modules made by Eutect.
“The IW1 and 2 mini wave modules can be serviced on the service cart itself. Among other things, a nozzle receptacle has been integrated for this purpose, which makes it very easy to clean and maintain the solder nozzle”, explains Jürgen Seibert, responsible for service at Eutect GmbH. Once a module has been removed from the machine, it can be placed on the service cart. Thanks to the ideal height of the cart, the secured module can be serviced on site without requiring further transportation. In addition to the complete module, individual parts, such as for instance the nozzles, can also be serviced on the service platform. All necessary tools and cleaning media are located in six drawers below the platform. “This means that the operator has all tools within easy reach,” Seibert continues. The carts are adapted to the IW modules used by the customer, as is the nozzle receptacle.

In addition to maintenance, minor repairs or disassembly’s can also be carried out by a trained operator. “Our goal is to maintain a module at its place of use. This means that when maintenance is carried out by our customer, the module does not have to leave the production area, but that the module can be maintained and reconditioned on site by trained personnel,” continues Seibert. For this reason, the service cart is equipped as standard with a variety of tools and cleaning media. Where worn out or consumed, these can be replenished easily via the new Eutect GmbH online store.

Eutect offers Level 1 training for customer employees, which is conducted by Seibert and his team. “When putting the systems into service we train the employees. Additional training for new employees or more in-depth training can be ordered from us at any time thereafter”, Seibert assures. These training courses ensure that production staff can easily carry out basic maintenance in accordance with Eutect’s specifications. “Regular maintenance is absolutely necessary for a long-lasting, efficient use of our modules. But this does not mean that valuable production time is lost to the customer. With the staff training, the service cart and the tool set compiled according to our experience, we offer customers fast, professional maintenance that guarantees long-lasting and efficient use of the modules,” says Seibert.

Cradle to Cradle concept

In every unit delivered by Eutect, not only labour time but also material values have been invested, which can be used for new projects. This can be, for example, the production cell, kinematic solutions but also soldering modules such as soldering nozzles, wire feeders or thermodes. If these parts are still operating, they can also be reused and can be integrated into other machine concepts if the sustainability and cradle-to-cradle idea is applied. This approach is based on a continuous and consistent recycling management. The German chemist Michael Braungart and the American architect William McDonough came up with this approach, which is based on “cradle-to-cradle products” that can be kept continuously in technical cycles as “technical nutrients”. Our “technical nutrients”, such as the production cell, soldering modules, robots or other kinematic systems are returned to our production after a thorough inspection and overhaul, as well as extensive functional testing, after this has been agreed to by the customer.

Customer loyalty through problem-solving competence

The customer and his problem are at the centre of our thoughts and actions.

For your products, your tasks and your specific requirements, we create solutions for mutual success. We thereby accompany and support you throughout the entire process of your product development. For the planned integrated circuit packaging (AVT), your products are jointly evaluated in a process environment suitable for volume production.

Our EUTECT Technology Centre is available for evaluations as well as pre-production soldering in order to find a practical solution under original process conditions.

All results and experiences flow directly into our product development. This know-how forms the foundation for the success of the project and the maximum technological benefit for further projects in the future.

We want to accompany you over the long-term.
