CCI 6000 Rotary Handler copy

Rotary table based systems used in production can help minimizes load and unload times for the operator, because the device-under-test (DUT) automatically moves to the next cell within the station as each DUT is loaded. The Circuit Check CCI 6000 Series Handlers are modular, scalable and flexible, supporting high-volume product production needs.

A common application example is to configure a CCI 6000 series as a rotary station to perform simultaneous PCBA bar code scanning, testing, programming and marking, all in order to pipe-line a process and reduce test time. CCI 6000 series handlers leverage CCI’s unique quick-change fixture drop-in technologies to allow for station modularity and scalability. Production line flexibility is achieved because the CCI 6000 series handler is software and hardware agnostic, enabling adaptability to a variety of applications, and limited only by the size limitation for the number of stations within the tester.

• Configurable for product test, programming, inspection and/or marking.
• Supports many open measurement hardware standards.
• Integrated rack and cabinet.
• Fully controllable station indexing beat-rate.
• Interchangeable dial plate fixturing.
• Specially designed fixture alignment tooling pins.
• Operator safe operation with light curtains and fail-safe fixturing.
• Number of stations is configurable for complete test station implementation.
• Ideal for high-volume production where cycle times are short and operator load/unload tasks need to be minimized.

 

Benefits

Due to increased productivity demands, personnel limitations and quality, integration of test and automation within a rotary based architecture not only increases product throughput, but can deliver many other benefits:

• More easily align quality with efficiency:
       o Automation integrated with test allows for faster more efficient design of throughput algorithms. Functional tests performed can be evaluated on the basis of detectable faults compromised by line beat-rate.
• Eliminate possibility of product accidentally forwarded to the next process step, while assuring that the correct failure data is available for Quality and Repair departments:
      o Automation with test allows failure analysis to be logged automatically, while also enabling product to be removed from process flow.
• Support concurrency by allowing multiple products to be processed at the same time:
      o Automation using a rotary based architecture can save valuable floor space.
• Address mission critical industries:
      o Automation linked to test can reduce operator intervention allowing for simplified validation to Quality standards.
• Replace some or all manual labor allowing production operating costs to be reduced.

 

Testing Applications

• Production environment that needs to support high-volume and high-mix products.
• Mission critical business sectors where operations must be quality assured and checked automatically.
• Increased production rate through concurrency in manufacturing.
• Reduce operations costs with automated handling between manufacturing process steps.

System Description

 

Modular Fixturing for Maximum Equipment Reuse:

A key to achieving the maximum value from automated test equipment is using the same test equipment and mechanics to test multiple products. Circuit Check's 6000 Series Rotary Handler achieves this by using interchangeable fixturing plates.  These unique quick-charge fixture drop-in’s maximize equipment re-use while minimizing the cost for each new test. Drop-in fixtures can perform a variety of functions, such as functional test, flash programming, vision inspection, through-connector test and/or marking.
