RX-7 High Speed Compact Modular Mounter

Juki Automation Systems (JAS), Inc., a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems and part of Juki Corporation, announces that it has been awarded a 2014 NPI Award in the category of Component Placement – High-Speed for its RX-7 high-speed compact modular mounter. The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, March 25, 2014 ceremony that took place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO. RX-7 has achieved the top class speed of 49,000CPH (IPC9850) in a compact footprint of 988mm width.  This is Juki's 36th industry award.

The RX-7 uses two of Juki’s brand new compact rotary heads (Super Rotary Head), capable of 16 nozzles per head. This is a high-speed chip-shooter with high placement accuracy of ±40µm (Cpk > 1) that meets the specification for production of smart phones and many other high-density electronic applications. In combination with the newly released RX-6 flexible mounter, Juki is now able to offer   greater cost efficient production lines, resulting in high yield productivity for various industries whether high-mix, low-volume or high-volume production.

Each Super Rotary Head has two high quality placement head-inserted cameras, one recognition camera to take images of each component from the rear surface and a pick inspection camera to take images of component and nozzle point from the side surface.

The RX-7 can support up to 76 8mm parts for placement, resulting in flexible and efficient productivity.  It supports a self-diagnostic function that is conducted during startup and production.  This improves production by giving alerts when there is a problem with the machine. For example, the RX-7 will detect a nozzle that is frequently causing pick errors and report the problem. 

The RX-7 is equipped with a GUI that can jump to any objective function quickly.  Additionally, the operability has improved by using a larger touch panel monitor, introducing a “Favorites” function on operation menu, and by providing real-time capability to change the language setting.   

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.


Juki, a global leader in high-speed SMT Assembly equipment, has shipped more than 25,000 machines worldwide since 1987.  Juki has built its global image with a combination of top-quality and high-reliability machines with a reputation for world-class service and support that result in the lowest production costs for its customers.  The pioneer of the modular assembly system in 1993, Juki offers flexible solutions designed for both high-volume and high mix environments.   

Additionally, Juki Americas offers selective solder and stamp soldering machines backed by the largest field service group in the industry. The company recently introduced a complete line solution to include screen printers, reflow ovens and wave solder systems.
