SMT pick-and-place platform
22 March 2017, Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Panasonic Factory Solutions improved on its NPM-W pick-and-place platform to produce the NPM-W2, with 10% higher throughput and 25% better accuracy.

It also integrates a multi recognition camera that accommodates components from size 03015 (metric) up to 120 x 90 mm components with heights as much as 40 mm, as well as connectors approaching 150 mm in length.

Board handling has also been improved. Available in either single-lane or dual-lane options, the machine provides the ability to handle printed circuit boards (PCB) up to 1490 x 550 mm – ideal for long LED panels or large industrial boards.

Quick-change feeder carts, auto board support setup and expanded nozzle capacity, along with 120 feeder inputs and ‘Intelligent Feeder Anywhere’ technology position the NPM-W2 as an ideal solution for virtually any mix and volume. Additionally, numerous placement and process head options, plus multiple component supply methods, are available.

The machine’s camera system combines three separate imaging capabilities: 2D alignment, component thickness inspection and 3D co-planarity measurement. The field upgradeable system effectively eliminates configuration challenges historically associated with vision systems.

Manufacturers can scale NPM production lines to meet production needs while conserving investments until production or technology requirements mandate. Original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and electronics manufacturing service (EMS) providers can reconfigure the machine heads in approximately 15 minutes. The NPM-W2 also incorporates existing feeders, carts and nozzles to minimise investment and inventory expenses.
