Component mounter handles large PCBs

23 March 2016 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

The new Z:LEX YSM20W from Yamaha Motor IM retains the flexibility and efficiency across a range of diverse production conditions, and the same high-speed capability, component handling and scalability as the high-efficiency Z:LEX SM20 component mounter. In addition, it is a wide-body model that features significantly increased PCB adaptability, and which can handle extra-large-sized PCBs up to L810 x W742 mm.

In recent years, miniaturisation, high-densification, increased functionality and diversification, as well as shortened product cycles, have accelerated for a variety of products such as consumer electronics, personal computers and mobile telephones. Along with faster speeds, flexibility in order to efficiently accommodate small-scale varied production up to mass production on the same line is required in electronic component mounting processing for these types of products.

The new machine provides flexibility and efficiency in various forms of production without the need for replacing the head, thanks to the ‘1 head-solution’ concept. It is capable of handling extra-large-sized PCBs for automotive products, industrial, medical, power devices and LED lighting etc. with its significantly increased adaptability to PCB sizes and weight. In addition to this, the dual-lane specification provides benefits for mass production with its ability to handle not only small mobile device type PCB work, but also PCBs at larger than M sizes.
