Transport options for DEK printers:
Heavy Board Conveyor

With its Heavy Board Conveyor, ASM offers a special transport option for the transport of heavy substrates. While the standard conveyors of DEK printers are designed for substrates weighing up to 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds), the Heavy Board Conveyor accommodates substrates weighing up to 6 kilograms (13.2 pounds). In addition, this option is also suitable for the safe transport of ‘heavy’ trays and carriers.

Technical specifications

  • Substrate thickness: 0.2 mm to 6 mm
  • Substrate weight: up to 6 kg (13.2 lbs)
  • Conveyor directions: left to right, right to left, left to left, right to right
  • Width adjustment with programmed, motorized backstop (like standard transport)
  • Substrate positioning with patented Over the Top clamps, side clamps or foil-less clamps (optional)
  • Not combinable with High Throughput Conveyors
  • Remote Board Stop option is recommended for ‘heavy’ trays and carriers
  • The board clamps are 500 mm long, which restricts the minimum stencil size to 584 mm

 

Remote Board Stop for heavy substrates and carriers?

With its Remote Board Stop, ASM offers a device for stopping substrates and carriers weighing from 1 kg up to 5 kg (2.2 lbs) in a DEK printer. It repeatedly stops heavy substrates and carriers in the correct position and is a substitute for the flexible camera-mounted board stop. The Remote Board Stop has a sensor for detecting the presence of a board and a pneumatically operated cylinder for stopping. The device is manually fitted on the printer table and can easily be uninstalled.
