Modular high-speed component mounter

EMP 2021 Electronics Manufacturing & Production Handbook Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

JUKI’s smart modular mounter, model RS-1, is equipped with an advanced parallel 8-nozzle head, and is capable of mounting a wide variety of parts at high speed.

In addition to increasing the number of components mounted per cycle from six to eight, the RS-1 also includes a new mechanism to improve the mounting speed by automatically changing the recognition sensor height. It uses high-speed component feeders to bring its maximum placement rate to 40 000 CPH (optimum).

Components from 0,2 mm x 0,1 mm to 74 mm square, 50 mm x 150 mm, with height up to 25 mm can be mounted by the RS-1. In addition to providing an enhanced motor on the θ (theta) axis of the nozzle, component range and speed have been improved by changing component centring to handle four parts simultaneously.

The RS-1 and all of Juki’s factory control software provide the speed and flexibility required by modern electronics manufacturing.
