WEST PALM BEACH, FL – January 24, 2019 – SYNEO, a leader in precision tooling and automation services to the electronics manufacturing services industry, announced today the release of its latest automatic servo-electric press, the AEP-XT. The AEP-XT is designed to take on today’s most challenging compliant pin connectors. SYNEO has developed several groundbreaking improvements to existing electric press technology, including increases in press accuracy of both force and position parameters, which take it to a level far superior to the competition.

Designed to accommodate the growing needs of an operator free connector assembly line – the AEP-XT is 100% compatible with pick-and-place equipment. Designed around a true SMEMA Interface, the AEP-XT does not require any expensive or complex buffers between production equipment to function, allowing PCB assemblers to install other upstream and downstream automation equipment.

SYNEO’s AEP-XT eliminates excessive programming time and recipe migration by incorporating tools such as the 1 Click Recipe Transfer, CAD Importation Software Module and Automatic Profile Generation. Automatic Profile Generation allows the user to enter very basic tooling information - and the software will automatically generate the required profile to accurately press the connector.

The AEP-XT is designed to be the “right size” to save space on the production floor, with a nearly 50% smaller footprint compared to previous generation AEP’s. “The AEP-XT is the most versatile automatic press-fit equipment the market has ever seen. This machine combines the advantages of speed, small footprint, high accuracy and flexibility - all at a very attractive price point” said Vincent Levannier, SYNEO PressFit Manager.
