FA1000 is a range of modular components
to build automatic handling lines for electronic boards.
The FA1000 elements include the articles needed to develop tailor-made
automatic lines, e.g. transport lines, shuttles, lifters and instrument
supports. A CPU is installed in each handling element, which allows
it to decide autonomously how to react depending on the configuration
and working load of the line. This feature allows so-called Intelligent
Segmented Line handling systems to be developed. Workstations and
specific control software are not necessary when intelligent segmented
lines are used because the automated technology is capable to autonomously
decide how to react to situations arising on the line. Only a monitoring
station is needed to control the line’s functioning with ensuing
reduction of capital costs.
All the modules in this catalogue can be bought separately or in
pre-assembled units ready for installation. Please contact your
