PRLog - Oct. 19, 2010 - HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. -- APS Novastar, LLC, (http://www.apsgold.com) a global leader in the design, development, and manufacture of OEM solutions for the short to medium run SMT and PCB assembly is pleased to announce the availability of new SMTrue Smart Feeders for use with its vision-based automated Pick and Place machines.  Available in all feeder types, including Tape, Bank, Vibratory, Matrix, and Cut-Tape, SMTrue Smart Feeders are reliable, economical, and provide improved efficiency, faster machine setup, and increased dependability by minimizing potential pick and place errors.

Managed through a Smart Feeder Database, each SMTrue Smart Feeder is assigned an Unique Feeder ID.  The Smart Feeder Database manages all important component information including address, position, component dimensions, count and even tape index and vibratory control.  The Smart Feeder Software has the ability to recognize the presence or absence of a feeder, including a checklist of previously programmed information, creating error-free programming and changeover environment.  SMTrue Smart Feeders also provide interactive feedback on when component count becomes low or a feeder runs out of a component.

SMTrue Smart Feeders increase the PCB assembly efficiency and accuracy of APS Novastar's vision-based automated pick and place machines.  Pick and place machine models that support the new SMTrue Smart Feeders include the free-standing LS60V, LS60V-LED, LS40V, and LE40V benchtop model.

"Our new SMTrue Smart Feeders are designed to provide our customers with an additional level of reliability and performance," says Tim Kardish, APS Novastar President and CEO.  "In addition, the ease of operating these feeders will increase our users' efficiency, enable them to setup and changeover runs faster and minimize, if not eliminate errors."
