XRHCount – the booster for modern pick and place applications

Today, mass-market electronics are manufactured almost exclusively on high-erformance assembly machines. Time is literally money. Therefore, two aspects are of particular importance: maximum quantities and minimum changeover time. When it comes to the necessity of counting components before or after the assembly progress most manufacturers are still using the old-fashioned approach of manual counting devices.

The XRHCount is a compact X-ray unit to count all common and most special SMT component-types on reels with a diameter up to 400mm. Components should be compact and have a sufficient contrast.

The cabinet has a footprint of 1.25m x 0.85m and a height of 2.2m and is certified by the German TÜV. Significant is that there is no X-ray leakage, an automatic drawer, automated label printing and an interface to warehouse management systems.

Simplicity is the key

A huge advantage of the XRHCount is its simplicity. The end user just has to place the reel in the drawer and press one button. The result will be shown immediately. A sophisticated validation scheme delivers a warning in the unlikely case of an uncountable reel. These reels can either be counted manually or stored for later review through a supervisor.

The XRHCount is the only system on the market providing automatic component estimation (ACE). Therefore, the complete counting process is highly flexible and needs no component pre-selection.
