High Accuracy Without Changeovers

The FLEX is a two-sided gull-wing lead forming system with automatic standoff control.

Simple changeover of die members, combined with accurate, repeatable changes in tip to tip length, can vary all the critical dimensions of most SMT footprints on a wide variety of ceramic packages.

SMART-FLEX SMT Trim and Form System

Fancort newest SMT offering is the SMARTFLEX an Electronic Floating Anvil FLEX System that is PLC controlled. Here are some unique features that the PLC adds to the already top of the line Automatic Standoff height control SMT Floating Anvil FLEX System.

This system will help the technician/operator make set ups easier faster and with less chance of mistakes. Plus everything will be documented and will be saved in the PLC for future use and or modification when needed.

  • Automatic set up and adjustment of the “A” Standoff height.
  • Automatic set up and adjustment of the “D” Tip to Tip.
  • SMT forming specs library, the operator can choose existing forming specs that are linked to a list of internal Flex tool members (that the customer has on hand already) and will be required to process this new or existing IC part.
  • SMT Development Mode. This feature will prompt the technician to enter his required forming specs and will help guide the operator to put in values that are industry standards. Once the values are accepted, the program will determine what internal tooling members will be used or have to be acquired. This unique program calculates spring back and has the Flex systems limitation included;

    For example .012 “C” is the systems maximum lead thickness capability and the program will not allow a value larger than .012 to be entered or saved.
  • Parts library, This section will have a list of all internal Flex tool members on hand for use that the user has acquired.
  • Internal Flex tool members will have a Bar code ID that will identify its critical dimensions, when read with the reader provided with the system.
  • Internal Diagnostics, Operation manual, Factory support.
