Why did you design it with only a single head? Wouldn't having 2 heads and the advancing pin on the back of the gantry, like the TM240A, result in a much higher component placement speed?

The double head design like the TM240A has the advantage to work without nozzle changer I use two different nozzles on each head so it could place sometimes 2 components on one movement.

SMT700 uses a nozzle changer and could reach a higher speed without vibrations.

My machine controller software could drive 4 heads but this is an expensive license option.
I did not choose this version because I don't like the drag system on my TM240 because it has large tolerances.
Maybe we could build a second head version having this feature I am thinking about it.

Thank you for the good suggestion.

Best regards
Michael

Some new impressions.
I refine the head design.

The head design is mostly finished

I did a new stencil printer design it will be avaliable before machine production starts.

It can print 300x200mm stencils and is used for prototyping.

The PCB is fixed by magnetic holders so you can reach any position on the working platform.

Our adjustment range is +/- 5mm and +/- 2 degrees.
We used a stable and precision design and a magnetic fixture fore the stencil holder if pulled down.
The Z axis could be moved to adjust the PCB thickness.

Looks good, when will it be available? Specifics please. The site only hand a simple banner and nothing else.

what is the price tag for the stencil printer?

The complete description will be finished next week we plan to resell the printer between 480 to 520 USD depends on the manufacturing costs.

I finished the design.

SMALLSMT Stencil printer STP300

The design is finished we plan to resell the printer for 499USD.
We can print up to 200x300mm size.
You can adjust the workplate in X and Y direction for +/- 5mm.
Theta adjustment is in the Range of +/- 2°.
The initial board placement is done by moving the magnetic fixtures on the workplate.
It is possible to use varios stencil sizes by adjusting the stencil holder.



Here are the final pictures

Good day Supertronic,
Your stencil printer looks excellent!  Are you planning to make a larger version of your stencil printer?  I ask, as the 200mm tends to be a little small.  That being said, your price point looks good.  When will these be available and will you be shipping them from Germany?
Cheers,
Sam

Hi Sam,
The product will be shipped from Shanghai or maybe Germany.
This is a precision printer for prototype boards up to 300x200mm print area.
It need’s not so much space like the big  A3 sized printer.
You can fix prototype stencils at different sizes.
Which size do you need we plan a second size too.
I hope we begin the shipping end of August.
Best regards
Michael

Good day Michael,
Thank you for the additional information! For my prototyping, etc your 300x200 would be ok, but sometimes I panelize my designs and so I need a larger area to accommodate the panel... and so 400x300 or so would take care of virtually everything I would do. In fact, I recently purchased an inexpensive one off of Ebay and its size is 440x320. 
Cheers,
Sam

Looks really good. When your ready to ship, please provide specifics on ordering.

What's the status on your PnP machine. That also looked promising.

Hi maddoc,

we are on the timeline the machine will be ready end of the year.
Currently we are testing some of our new constructions to finish the machine prototype end of summer.
We need to check the design of the clutches.
The base construction is finished I need to draw the parts mounted in the base compartment of the SMT700.

Regards
Michael
