Contact your local Fuji dealer. Your questions are covered on first couple of pages of spec. Your reluctantness to contact Fuji direct sounds as though you are a competitor scratching for info. Pick a phone, call Fuji.

I just saw the new NXT machines at globaltronics in Singapore, and mostly they are faster.
However what was interesting is Fuji shows a prototype of the new XPF machine, but it was called XPF-W which handles really large PCB's and uses the same motor feeders as NXT. This machine has the changeable nozzles as the new XPF machine, and watching it change a turret for a single placement head was amazing, but the machine is also much faster than the XP series machines, so it really fly's.
But the best thing is they have added auto tooling support placement, so it's got all the benefits of NXT now, but can do large boards if you have the space for these larger machines. NXT is smaller footprint if your doing small boards.
The sales guy said the XPF-W would be available Q1 next year. Nice machine, and I want to buy a bunch of them as soon as they become available.
Fuji also have a nice new stencil printer, but there was no word if it will do the larger prints for the larger machine they were showing, so that's a bit odd.
Also, on the MYDATA booth they had a cool vertical storage for reels of components. It's a dry cabinet, but you can request a component and it auto fetches it for you and presents it. Nice because the floor footprint was really tiny, so it could be right next to the pick and place machines. It works by itself, but apparently when used with a MYDATA it will get the next component that's about to run out.
