Juki Automation Systems, Inc., a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and part of Juki Corporation, will celebrate its 25,000th machine shipped worldwide and its 25-year anniversary in the SMT placement industry in Booth #1137 at the upcoming IPC APEX Expo, scheduled to take place February 28 - March 1, 2012 at the San Diego Convention Center in California.
The new Sentry will be displayed on the KE-2070/2080 line, bringing together the fastest RCFA tool in the industry and combining it with visual traceability. Newly developed, ultra-small cameras in the pick-and-place head record all pick-and-placement action in real-time for immediate analysis of the process with a data storage system.
A unique AOI system, integrated in the pick-and-place system, assures that only 100 percent correctly assembled boards will be transferred to the next machine. This guarantees that sequential errors within the assembly systems are avoided and that process errors will be detected instantly with the help of image recognition during the placement process. All of these features can be achieved with no additional programming time. All required data is taken from the pick-and-place program.
Juki’s FX-3R super high-speed mounter and KE-3010 high-speed chip shooter will be on display together with the KE-3020V high-speed flexible mounter as one production line. The upgraded FX-3R now features a maximum throughput of up to 66’000 cph (IPC9850), the largest placeable component range in the high-speed placer market with up to 33.5 mm2 and 240 x 8 mm tape feeder lanes. With the U.S. premier of the KE-3010, Juki offers the perfect matching chip shooter for combinations with the KE-3020(V) and FX-3(R), allowing the high-speed placement of the widest range of components up to 12 mm height and new 160 x 8 mm tape feeder lanes.
With a maximum component height of 25 mm, the KE-3020V model now offers the possibility for the on-the-fly centering of six vision components simultaneously over the high-speed camera. In addition to the existing high-speed laser measuring system, this also increases the component placement over the camera up to a maximum speed of 9’000 cph. A fluxer will be on display for Package on Package (PoP) demonstrations. All three models are fully compatible with all JUKI machines upwards and downwards.
The new JX-200 high-speed compact mounter also will be displayed at the show. The new low-cost compact entry-level placement machine builds on the same basis as the existing JX-100 and features a high resolution camera for vision placement, in addition to the standard laser. With a IPC9850-rated speed of 13,900 cph for laser placement and 4,400 cph for vision placement, the JX-200 convinces with its superior cost performance, versatility, reliable quality and ease of operation.
The JX-100LED now offers the capability to handle board sizes up to 1200 mm, making it the “must have” machine for low cost, high-speed LED tube production. A 1200 mm long board line will feature the GKG Screen Printer and the JX100 with Long Board Option.
Also on display, Juki’s award winning FSW620 dual nozzle selective soldering system is a traditional mini-wave soldering system capable of supporting board sizes up to 18" x 18" depending on nozzle configuration. The FSW620 is the only machine in its class to offer up to four autonomous acting soldering nozzles, allowing the use of four different sizes and/or types of nozzles without changeover.
