With lean manufacturing as its primary objective, Pushtrack models are installed in line, with operators at each station building a specific part of the PCB before being instructed to pass the board downline to the next Mascot. A flow line can feature as many Mascots as needed to balance the materials inventory between stations to maximise efficiency and productivity. This process is perfect for high volumes and small batches with ample capacity for the entire inventory, eliminating kitting and set up time. The non-motorised pushtrack is ride-height and line-width adjustable to accommodate PCBs and pallets up to 500mm in depth.
The MASCOT PUSHTRACK allows multiple MASCOT systems to be connected in-line for flow based production environments. A uniquely quick and reliable solution for building PCBs precisely MASCOT PUSHTRACK will minimise PCB build times, improve your production quality and offers far greater flexibility for PTH & odd form insertion, inspection and re-work. MASCOT PUSHTRACK offers total flexibility, adapting to meet ever changing production requirements.
An eye-safe laser is used to indicate the exact position & orientation of the component to be placed while the correct component for insertion is presented to the operator. The laser brilliance is adjustable and clear in all lighting conditions; there are no bulbs to change or filters to clean for minimum on-site maintenance.
Build instructions are displayed on screen comprising of part information, assembly instructions & component images or assembly videos. This ensures that the right component is placed in the right place, in the right way, every time and quickly. The user friendly operation requires virtually no training and allows for even non-experienced operators to begin building PCBs immediately.
The MASCOT PUSHTRACK can be programmed manually, or directly from CAD data imported using our optional ProCompiler software which significantly reduces set up time for new PCBs.
The whole system is built to operate in static sensitive areas with sockets for anti-static wrist straps built into both sides of the bench.
The modular design of MASCOT systems means that they can be configured to meet your specific requirements or easily reconfigured if your needs change in the future. You can select from a range of component dispensers & accessories, a single Workstation can support up to 200 random access bin locations (4 Carousels) & 176 fixed bin locations (IC Lanes or Tote Bins). The MASCOT PUSHTRACK can accommodate PCBs or wave solder pallets to a maximum of 600mm x 500mm (23.6” x 19.7”).
As your business expands the Multiple MASCOT PUSHTRACK Workstations can be easily networked, sharing assembly files and our optional WORKFLOW software provides comprehensive data logging facilities for PCB traceability & build data analysis.
