Yamaha to Present European Debut of Major New Printer, Inspection and Mounting Machines at SMT Hybrid Packaging 2018
Booth 4-319 to showcase multiple new machines introducing advanced features for next-generation productivity, quality, and throughput
Yamaha Motor Europe-SMT Section will debut advanced printing, 3D print-inspection, and mounting machines at SMT Hybrid Packaging in Nuremberg, all featuring important innovations to boost productivity and efficiency.
Headlining at the booth (4-319, June 5-7), Yamaha’s new state-of-the-art printer introduces fully automated product changeovers for high-speed error-free productivity, down to the finest resolutions for 0201 passives and fine-pitch flip-chip ICs.
Visitors also get the first opportunity to see the new YSi-SP inline 3D paste-print inspection machine, after its global launch in January. Feeding today’s data-centric manufacturing, YSi-SP with statistical process control (SPC) delivers greater insights into print-process performance for increased yield and continuous improvement. YSi-SP is engineered for speed and efficiency using a single inspection head, with exclusive algorithms for 2D/3D-image handling and camera-resolution control.
Also newly launched and meeting European audiences for the first time, the YSM20R mounter is built for all-round speed and flexibility. Extending the performance and capabilities of the Z:LEX high-efficiency modular line-up, the YSM20R boosts mounting speed by about 5% and expands maximum component dimensions with scan camera to 12mm x 12mm for greater productivity. With options including Yamaha’s Auto-Loading Feeder (ALF), Auto Tray Sequencer (ATS) for non-stop tray replacement, and the non-stop feeder-carriage exchange system, YSM20R keeps production moving for maximum efficiency.
In addition, the Σ-G5S II – the latest and highest-performing in Yamaha’s premium modular mounter family – builds on the success of the high-accuracy, direct-drive rotary head design with further innovations that raise ideal maximum mounting speed by 20% to 90,000 cph. Other new features further boost productivity, including a revised circuit-board feeding sequence, and an enlarged internal buffer for storing larger boards. Σ-G5S II retains important innovations from the Σ-G5S, including die-feature recognition for repeatable and optically-accurate LED placement.
Yamaha Intelligent Factory and Yamaha’s Factory Tools
At the same time, visitors can see the latest releases in Yamaha’s Intelligent Factory software suite, which unifies all equipment in the Yamaha True Total Line Solution, and gives manufacturers unrivalled visibility, understanding and control over SMD assembly activities on their factory floor, with help to fix problems or use predictive maintenance to maximize uptime and utilization. The latest new features of Factory Tools 4.0 include real-time performance and feeder-status monitoring, M2M capabilities that deliver production data directly to the line supervisor’s mobile anywhere in the factory, and database-driven traceability and statistical process control (SPC).
The suite now comprises over 20 applications covering setup, programming, monitoring, and traceability down to component and nozzle level. They help production managers . Moreover, manufacturing managers can customize the tools to meet their needs, such as optimizing one line, coordinating with automated component towers, or streamlining changeovers. Factory Tools 4.0 can also help simplify feeder management, optimize production on multiple lines, and satisfy the quality demands of markets like automotive, medical or aerospace.
