 Juki Automation Systems, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems and part of Juki Corporation, announces that Mega Tech of Oregon (MTO) has begun production with its new KE-1080LN High-Speed Flexible Mounter. MTO provides custom solutions and product realization for OEMs, including PCB assembly, cable and wiring harness assembly, and complete electronic and electromechanical assemblies.

The Juki KE-1080 allows MTO to increase capacity while providing a level of flexibility that is critical for a high-mix manufacturing facility like ours. In addition to the increased capacity, we now have the ability to place 0201 and 01005 package sizes,” said David Schroeder, Business Development Manager, Mega Tech of Oregon.

Carlos Eijansantos, Juki’s Western Regional Sales Manager, commented, “We are excited that MTO has chosen Juki as a partner at this exciting time in its business. The KE-1080 is ideal for high-mix manufacturing and its modular design allows for quick, seamless integration with other Juki machines to add needed capacity for future growth.”

The KE-1080 features a five-nozzle head to handle large parts and uses a tri-colored advanced vision system featuring blue, green and red LEDs for accurate placement of fine-pitch ICs, connectors and odd-shaped components. Additionally, the KE-1080 has an IPC9850 rated speed of 14,100 CPH for chips, and 3,400 CPH for IC components when using the advanced lighting system. The effective component placement range for the KE-1080 is 01005 (0402 metric) to 74mm2 or 50 x 150 mm.
The KE-1080 is compatible with all current Juki feeders and trolleys, resulting in seamless installations into existing Juki lines.With powerful line optimization software and rugged trolley carts, changeover is quick and easy. The auto-pick correction feature minimizes setup time and ensures accurate picking of even the smallest components, as well as a “BGA” auto-teach feature that allows the operator to automatically “learn” the ball or lead pattern on BGAs and QFPs. Additionally, for the best results in repeatability, accuracy and reliability, all Juki machines use the LNC60 optical centering laser that is built into the head to easily measure components while moving from the pick to the placement site.

EstablishedCreada en 1996 con fines de Distribución únicamente, inicia en 1998 sus funciones como maquiladora en Matamoros, Tamaulipas; reparando producto por reclamo de garantía.EstaE in 1988, Mega Tech of Oregon provides both discrete and end-to-end manufacturing services for a wide array of industries.
