Component mounter

7 August 2013 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Fuji Machine Manufacturing announced the release of its new NXT III mounting platform, the latest iteration of the NXT series providing better productivity for all part sizes and types thanks to a faster XY robot, faster tape feeders, and a newly developed ‘flying vision’ parts camera. In addition, the new H24 head, capable of 35 000 cph (chips per hour) per module, means a 35% increase in speed compared to the NXT II.

By improving machine rigidity and further refining its independent servo control and vision recognition technology, Fuji has achieved a placing accuracy for small chip parts of ±25 μm (3σ, Cpk 1,00). As well as supporting the smallest parts currently being used in mass production (0402 mm), the machine can handle the next generation of components heading for the market in the form of 03015 mm parts.

Usability is another area which has been improved with the NXT III. The GUI of the original NXT made use of intuitive and easy-to-understand pictograms instead of relying on language-based instructions. This interface is now combined with a touchscreen panel to make operation even easier.

Current users can be assured that the new machine has high compatibility with the NXT II. Many of the main units from the NXT II such as placing heads, nozzle stations, feeders, tray units and feeder pallet exchange units can be used on the NXT III without any modifications.
