MEP Connector Press Series

SYNEO offers a tiered range of servo electric press machines designed to insert compliant pin connectors into printed circuit boards. Each SYNEO semi-automatic connector press machine is programmed and operated via a dedicated PC, that can be directly programmed or can utilize a remote programming workstation that supports multi-machine configurations.

Field Services

SYNEO’s high-resolution press position feedback (0.001mm true Z-Axis resolution) closely monitors pressing force (even below 1lb) in real time, allowing an operator to be immediately aware of a problem such as a bent pin, an oversized PCB hole, or an incorrectly positioned connector during the press cycle. Instantaneous feedback for board problems improves resolution in quality assurance, improving yield metrics while reducing operating costs.

All press programs, connectors, board layouts, and press profiles can be stored, so future applications can be easily adapted from existing programs and transferred between machines in multi-machine arrangements. All these functions improve the versatility of the work cell and help prevent future careless errors by allowing users to utilize previously validated information.

Utilizing application-specific press tooling designed by SYNEO’s technical team, users can have high-confidence that press profiles are correct, limiting risks for process validation delays and variances.
