Juki Automation Systems, Inc., a provider of automated assembly products and systems, is introducing several new products, including the ISM UltraFlex 1800, AXI5100c inline X-ray component counter, and RS-1 placement machine.
The UltraFlex 1800 is able to dynamically adjust the internal subdivision of space to accommodate changing mixes of reel heights from 8 up to 88 mm, and diameters from 7 to 15″. The new case designs allow storage of Jedec trays on any case format (both 7 and 15″ wide). It also offers flexibility, storage capacity, intelligence, and ROI. It can communicate across a wide variety of vendor platforms. Capable of providing up to 54 reels for production simultaneously, it can read low parts, warning to output the required reel in advance. It can also grow reels up to 88 mm in height.
The inline X-ray component counter is capable of counting the latest 03015s as well as (4) 7″ or (1) 15″ reels of various thicknesses. In addition to counting reels, the AXI5100c can also count components in ESD bags, storage sticks, and trays. It is a fully automated inline system that can handle loading and unloading of components using various conveyors, loaders/unloaders and even robots. The key advantage of the inline counter is the ability to communicate directly with the company’s ISM component storage towers offering complete and confident automation of component inventory.
The mid-speed RS-1 features one multi-function head New Head – the LNC120 with a 12 mm pitch and 8 nozzles as well as a diffuser for vision. The LNC-120 head laser moves up and down depending on component height, resulting in the highest CPH regardless of component height. Combined with the RF electronic feeders, the system has an optimal throughput of 40,000 CPH. With new odd-form recognition technology, the RS-1 provides easy data entry for odd-form parts.
