Upgraded SX1010 (made for NASA)

SX1000 Series Office Automatic Pick and Place Machines with Computer Vision Centering

The SX series mini automatic pick and place machines are specially designed for low budget circuit boards assembling. It is a great tool for prototypes, education and research, as well as small batch of production.
Quick tape mounting with our innovated tape forwarding system (patent pending)
Full computer vision for small parts and fine pitch IC's
Fast and easy to use
Very low cost feeders


  • Place speed 2000 pph with SX-2 feeders when computer vision is enabled; 2500 with fly vision; 3000 with PX feeders
  • Placement of 0201 and bigger parts
  • Computer vision automatic centering system for IC's (SOP, QFP, BGA) and better placement of small parts
  • Smart Vision: no need of reference or template pictures for most SMT parts; IC is centered as a whole part and also based on pins. Accurate and easy to use
  • 180W brushless servo motors and 4000 line encoders for X and Y axes
  • X, Y axis resolution 0.00025", 0.045° rotational resolution
  • Max. feeder capacity: 60 SX-2 8mm feeders for SX1010 and SX2010(feeders mounted at front, rear and middle); 150 SX-2 8mm feeders for SX1020; Vibration feeders and trays take tape feeder space
  • Free feeders: twenty SX-2 8mm paper or plastic tape feeders included for SX1010 and SX2010, forty included for SX1020
  • Low cost additional feeders
  • Automatic PCB board position correction with fiducial recognition included
  • CAD file convert function
  • Low machine profile for more stable and faster operation
  • 12 month full factory warranty - parts & labor
  • Easy to use graphic software for quick programming. Programming can be done with teaching video camera, on screen Gerber file graphics or CAD file
  • 110V AC 60Hz, or 220 V AC, 50Hz, 250 watts electrical
  • 60 psi shop air required
  • Machine customization available
Basic machine includes control box, software, one down looking and one up looking camera.

  • Windows XP or Windows 7 (32 bit) computer
  • Additional up looking cameras (only fixed lens can be used on the video camera for computer vision. Different cameras should be used for small and big parts for best results. Also working speed can be improved if more cameras are placed at different locations close to feeders);
  • Upgraded up looking cameras
  • Automatic nozzle changer
  • 400W brushless motor with 10000 line encoders
  • First and second paste/glue dispensers
  • Five channel vibratory feeder for tube parts
  • Through hole insert tool
  • PX feeders can be installed in addition to SX feeders
  • PCB conveyor for easy loading and unloading of PCB and inline operation

Advantages of SX-2 Feeders:
  • Low cost
  • Fast loading and unloading
  • More accurate than mechanical feeders
  • Fit any tape pitches
  • Automatic tape peeling
The SX feeders are slower than PX feeders. Each feeder needs a snap picture for the computer vision to find the parts on the tape.
