Newest Yamaha SMT machines shown off
13 June 2018, Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Yamaha Motor Europe debuted new printing, 3D print inspection and mounting machines at this year’s SMT Hybrid Packaging show in Nuremberg, all featuring innovations to boost productivity and efficiency.

Headlining the company’s booth display was a new state-of-the-art printer with fully automated product changeovers for high-speed productivity, down to the finest resolutions for 0201 passives and fine-pitch flip-chip ICs.

Visitors also had the first opportunity to see the new YSi-SP inline 3D paste-print inspection machine, after its global launch in January. Enabling today’s data-centric manufacturing, the machine’s 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 lineup, the YSM20R boosts mounting speed by about 5% and expands maximum component dimensions with scan camera to 12 x 12 mm. 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, the YSM20R keeps production moving for maximum efficiency.

In addition, the ΣG5S II – the latest and highest-performing in Yamaha’s premium modular mounter family – builds on 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 include a revised circuit-board feeding sequence, and an enlarged internal buffer for storing larger boards. The ΣG5S II retains important innovations from the ΣG5S, including die-feature recognition for repeatable and optically accurate LED placement.

Visitors also got to see the latest releases in Yamaha’s Intelligent Factory software suite, which unifies all equipment in its ‘True Total Line Solution’, and gives manufacturers enhanced visibility, understanding and control over SMD assembly activities on their factory floor, with help to fix problems or use predictive maintenance to maximise uptime and utilisation. 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).
