Yamaha Motor Europe SMT section will showcase the latest innovations from its Total Line Solution for high-productivity surface-mount assembly, including the richly automated YSP10 screen printer, at 2019 SMTconnect show, Nuremberg, May 7–9.
Headlining at their booth, the YSP10 minimizes the most time-consuming part of the screen-print process with new features for fully automated changeovers. Automatic push-up pin exchange, stencil replacement, and solder-paste gathering for direct transfer to the new stencil cut human intervention to an all-time low. Cycle time is also 20 % faster, setting the world’s best tact time, and the enlarged standard maximum board size of 510 mm x 510 mm handles large display-backlight panels, industrial boards, and more with ease. Alongside the advanced screen printer, the company will demonstrate precision solder-paste inspection with the YSi-SP. Proprietary high-speed algorithms accelerate the 2D and 3D inspection modes, and switchable super-high resolution gives extra accuracy where needed. YSi-SP captures the data needed for deeper insights into the print process that reveal new ways of boosting productivity, and integrates smoothly with other equipment in their Total Line Solution to put the results of analysis into action.
Next on the booth, the YSM20R high-speed modular mounter combines the company’s one-head solution that minimizes reconfiguration stoppages with component recognition on the move and placement of the latest 0201 (0.25 mm x 0.125 mm) SMD chips to enhance capability and efficiency. Increased structural rigidity allows higher X-Y axis speeds, contributing to 5 % greater throughput compared to the YSM20. Auto-loading feeders and the auto tray sequencer for non-stop tray replacement make the most of the superior mounting speed of 95,000 cph.
Bringing everything together, the YSi-V post-placement inspection system demonstrates the latest features including a full-HD LCD touch panel with enhanced navigation for programming and character-recognition algorithms to boost usability. The 12-Mpixel camera combines unbeatable performance with great value, consolidating 2D, 3D, and oblique-angled inspection for coplanarity and height as a single cost-effective unit. Also featuring the company’s exclusive image-capture technology, the YSi-V delivers more than double the inspection capability of ordinary inspection systems.
With the Factory Tools 4.0 software suite, the most complete software solution for Industry 4.0, completing the digital connection of machines, materials, humans, and method, the company will demonstrate how its True Total Line Solution fulfils production demands from entry level, through high-mix medium/high-volume up to ultra-mass production.
