The MH-900 series is configurable for inline or same-side load and unload operation, and supports both single or dual lane conveyors. Loader controls can be integrated with the Spectrum S-900N series dispenser or operate independently with other SMEMA equipment. The loaders easily manage a wide range of parts – from extremely thin frames or strips to large heavy boats, pallets, or film-framed wafers. Capacity is flexible; the system can handle multiple magazines for reduced loading frequency. PLC control enables future expandability when process needs change.
Changeover to different magazine and part sizes is quick and easy – no investment in different pusher tips or expensive tooling is required. An optional second shelf increases capacity for reduced loading frequency (not available on the MH-910W).
Advanced Process Control
Adjustable transport speed and carrier staging maximize UPH, while multiple carrier sensors, active pinch wheels and thin strip guides ensure safe handling for the most challenging applications.
The side door slides open for loading magazines into adjustable spring-loaded trays, and a vertical elevator moves them into loading position.
A frame sensor identifies the next available frame, significantly reducing search time for partially filled magazines. Frames are carefully pulled from the magazine and through the system by a soft-touch gripper and active pinch wheels.
Elevator and shuttle operate independently with programmable speed to provide precise, high-speed movement.
Programmed shuttle positions simplify setup and ensure continuous dispensing by moving frames to the next available lane. The shuttle also enables processing a single magazine on multiple lanes.
The MH-900 series loaders are fully enclosed with interlocked doors and windows for operator safety and part security. Access panels are easily removed, and built-in software maintenance tools make servicing easy. Robust system mechanics and a rigid enclosure ensure precise operation and reduced potential for jamming.
