CST Inc, have added a new “Precision labelling” system code name "Robo-Labeler" to the Roboflex handler and its revolutionary concept does not use any expensive Pick and Place system for placing pre-printed labels on DIMM memory modules.
The "Patent-Pending" Robo-Labeler system uses a direct socket insertion concept for label placement similar with memory module testing.
The Robo-Labeler gently pushes stacked modules horizontally into a labelling site one at a time for placement. On the labeler rear-end, a reel of pre-printed labels are fed into a wedge-shape block to peel off the label for placement. Several Thumb-screws fine adjustments are necessary to ensure the labels are position accurately on the DIMM module
A set of roller-clamp mechanism then transfer the peeled label and placed it directly on the module,and immediately after the placement, the module is withdrawn from the Labelling site and are dropped into collecting bins by the conveyor system.
In the manufacturing enviroment,each placement of labels and output of module takes approximately 5 seconds or 720 module per hour. High throughput design enable placement of up to 6,000 labels , base on a single 8 hour shift using a single system.
“I am excited with this revolutionary DIMM labelling system, it is now under intense trial-run by several major memory module manufacturers. Using this labeling system, it greatly reduces the cost of adding labels using expensive Pick and Place machines” said Joe Goh, Director of Marketing of CST, Inc. “ This patented technology will now bring ease-of-use, lower handling cost and provide high efficiency to the memory module manufacturing industry.”
The "Robo-Labeler" is equipped with a universal input tray that fits all kind of standard 184pin & 168pin DIMM without any adjustment neccessary.
With a quick change of “Robo-Labeler" – the RoboFlex handler with “Robo-Labeler” can be quickly converted back for production testing. The “Robo-Labeler” will work with both RoboFlex-1 and RoboFlex-II base handler.
The RoboFlex Handler with Labeling option is now available. Price starts at $8995. Options are available for 200pin and 144pin SODIMM.
Founded in 1983, CST designs, manufactures, markets and supports computer memory test software and hardware. CST pioneered the first low cost SIMM tester for computers in 1985. Since then, CST testers have become the standard for computer manufacturing industry, holding more than 70% of the market in memory module testers for computer manufacturers and third party memory module manufacturers. With its product lines of memory module tester and handler, CST is equipped to handle all aspects of memory module testing. CST has a comprehensive line of testers ranging from the low-volume service tester to the high-end, high-volume tester. In addition, CST also provides customization for proprietary module test fixtures.
