UIC Releases Radial, VCD 88HT Insertion Machines Print E-mail

Radial 88HT and VCD 88HT through-hole component mounters have expanded component ranges and come as upgrades for existing Gen. 8 and 88 machines. Reportedly provide twice the throughput of older AI equipment. Radial 88HT accommodates largest range of components on a single machine with quad-span insertion tooling (2.5mm, 5mm, 7.5mm, and 10mm); addresses high-density applications with single-span insertion tooling. Has a programmable clinch height. With an available Tall Part Kit, it places components as tall as 27mm. Includes easy-load dispense heads, 100+ feeder locations, and a component verification system that validates product setups. Is suited for LED, compact fluorescent, and energy-efficient lighting products.
