SMT care and maintenance guide, how to extend service life?

As an important electronic equipment, the placement machine plays an important role in the electronic manufacturing process. In order to extend the service life of the placement machine, we need to perform care and maintenance on it. Below are some maintenance guidelines for placement machines, I hope they will be helpful to you.

  1. Keep it clean: The patch machine will accumulate dust, oil, etc. during use. The machine should be cleaned after each use. You can use a soft brush or blow gun to remove dust. Be careful not to use too much force to avoid damaging the components. For some stains that are difficult to remove, you can use special cleaners to wipe them, and be careful not to wet the circuit board and other sensitive parts.
  2. Regular maintenance: The placement machine should undergo regular maintenance after continuous use. First, you need to check whether all parts of the machine are intact and whether they are loose or worn. Tighten loose parts and replace worn parts. At the same time, it is also necessary to check whether the machine’s transmission system, conveyor belts, cutting tools and other components are operating normally, and if there are any abnormalities, repair or replace them in a timely manner.
  3. Pay attention to temperature and humidity: The placement machine has high requirements for ambient temperature and humidity and should be kept within an appropriate range. Avoid prolonged exposure to high temperature and high humidity environments, which can easily lead to machine failure and oxidation and corrosion of parts. If the ambient humidity is too high, you can use a dehumidifier or humidifier to adjust it.
  4. Regular lubrication: The moving parts of the placement machine need regular lubrication to reduce wear and friction. Lubricating oil should be selected suitable for the drag chain, guide rail, transmission device and other parts of the machine to avoid using improper or low-quality lubricating oil.
  5. Keep the machine balanced: The placement machine needs to maintain balance when working to avoid uneven stress on components caused by machine tilt or instability. Make sure the support feet are adjusted and fixed before use to keep the machine stable.
  6. Perform regular calibration: The accuracy of the placement machine is the key to its work, and regular calibration can ensure the accuracy of the placement machine. Calibration can be performed by comparing standard components. If the deviation is found to be greater than the specified range, adjustments and repairs should be made in time.
  7. Follow the operating procedures: During the use of the placement machine, the operating procedures must be strictly followed. Avoid malicious operations or excessive use, which may cause machine failure or increased component wear.
  8. Regularly check the circuit board: The core component of the placement machine is the circuit board. You should regularly check whether the connecting wires are loose, whether the solder joints are firm, whether the components are aging, etc. Timely discovery and handling of circuit board problems can ensure the normal operation of the placement machine.
  9. Maintenance of electric components: The electric components of the placement machine, such as servo motors, sensors, etc., should be maintained regularly. Timely remove dust and dirt from its surface, and conduct regular inspections and adjustments. At the same time, avoid long-term overload use of electric components to avoid damaging their performance.
  10. Training operators: The use of the placement machine requires professional operators, who need to have relevant knowledge and skills. Therefore, it is necessary to continuously train operators to master the operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and other skills of the placement machine to ensure the correct use of the placement machine.

In short, the maintenance work of the placement machine needs to focus on daily cleaning, regular maintenance, temperature and humidity control, regular lubrication, etc. Only by carrying out correct and reasonable maintenance work can the service life of the placement machine be extended, its work efficiency and stability improved, and better support provided for electronic manufacturing.
