I finally got my LE40ev delivered, yay! It took longer than originally scheduled as part of the deal was that the local support got to borrow my machine for a trade show first
I've only done a few small boards so far, but as yet it has done very well. I've not tried importing the centroid data method as yet, but the teaching approach is pretty painless so it may be a while before I try it. Likewise the vision, so far I've just been using it for the auto-fiducial detection and leaving the mechanical centering turned on - works well so far but I'll be using the recognition software for making sure ICs are the correct way around and for some of the other non-passives.
It's a hefty chunk of steel so winching it up to my first floor workshop was 'interesting'.
So far I've just got a 12 slot tape bank feeder, which will handle all 8mm tapes, a 16mm feeder and a tube vibrator. There's also a cut tape 'slot''. Oddly ,the advise was to get a flat plate machined up to the correct height to be fixed to the main rails and just use double sided tape to hold cut strips and trays! So I'll give that a go soon.
