Modular component placement machine
10 October 2018, Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Panasonic’s NPM-W2S is designed to solve manufacturer’s need to tighten control of their work in process, minimise changeover, and expand feeder capacity while accommodating smaller lot sizes in a cost-effective manner.

It addresses these challenges as well as expanding the standard component range from 03015 mm microchips to massive 100 x 90 mm components and connectors nearly 150 mm long and up to 30 mm tall.

The machine delivers 100 N insertion force for greater odd-form capability and increases pin-through-hole device imaging capability via optional pin-in-paste illumination. Equipped with a multi-recognition camera, it enables component alignment, defect inspection, chip thickness and 3D co-planarity inspection in a single pass to promote high productivity and quality. Optical character recognition (OCR) and pre-pickup inspection features allow unique recognition of tray-fed parts from barcodes, lines and polarity marks to determine proper pickup angles, even if parts are fed incorrectly.

Single- and dual-lane mode functionality promotes the capability to process extremely long LED panels nearly 1200 mm in length. It can automatically convert modes to dual-lane ‘shared’ or ultra-productive ‘hybrid’ mode. The NPM-W2S offers features to enhance efficiency such as automated board support pin placement, self-aligning feeder cart changeover, intelligent feeder anywhere, and 2D-coded nozzle anywhere. It further enhances production quality with thermal expansion compensation, board warp mapping, a 20- or 40-position direct pick tray tower, and closed-loop component monitoring with material verification, control and trace.

Manufacturers can scale production lines from low- to high-volume depending on production needs, while conserving investments until production or technology requirements mandate. OEMs and EMS providers can reconfigure the machine heads in minutes. The NPM-W2S also incorporates existing CM series Panasonic feeders and nozzles to minimise capital investment and reduce inventory expense.
