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 closest SPEA office for a free estimate or advice.
