High-speed modular component mounter

EMP 2022 Electronics Manufacturing & Production Handbook Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Juki’s compact new RX-8 has evolved from previous models and efficiently handles microchip SMD components from as small as 0,4 x 0,2 mm up to 5 mm square and as tall as 3 mm. It achieves high speeds for small parts – both discrete chips and ICs –using two revolving mounting heads.

The number of nozzles on each mounting head has been increased from 16 to 20 to increase the number of parts that can be acquired at one stop from one feeder. As a result, it achieves 100 000 components per hour (cph) in the same footprint as the previous model, the RX-7, but is 1,3 times faster. In addition, the new P20 revolving ‘planet head’ is ideal for rapid mounting of the same part number with high quality tuned for volume production of LED lighting and specifically panel board production using LED edge lights.

By combining the RX-8 together with the RS-1R flexible modular mounter, it is possible to build a very high-speed, high-quality SMT line that supports the widest range of products. In addition, by linking with Juki’s Advanced Network System (JaNets) software, the mounting system’s software further contributes to improving the productivity of the entire factory, including visualisation of machine operating status.
