The MPC platform is a highly flexible automation solution for a multitude of tasks, using a collaborative robot system from German Robotics. The standard system is equipped with a rotary table for module input.
The MPC can be equipped with various tools. In addition to piston soldering heads, dispensers, screw or placement tools as well as grippers are also planned for integration into the MPC. Depending on customer requirements, the MPC can be equipped with different tools for different applications. The use of various tools in a work process is also being possible.
The robot used is a Panda from German Robotics equipped with torque sensors installed in all seven axes. This gives the Panda seven degrees of freedom. Thanks to the built-in sensors, the robot arm can also approach complex positions with the soldering iron and set soldering points exceptionally easily.

The complete system MPC KL (piston soldering) can be equipped with piston soldering systems from JBC or HAKKO. The soldering iron sits firmly mounted on the arm of the robot, including the wire feed. Robots, control systems and soldering irons are a machine unit. The entire system is completed by the input area, which in the standard version consists of a rotary table for manual component assembly and a safety cell around the soldering process. Furthermore, a soldering tip holder is provided in the process surface itself, with which the fully automatic change of the soldering tips takes place. The same applies to the tip cleaning.
