Juki's JX-100 Wins a 2009 Innovation Award

Apr 23, 2009

MORRISVILLE, NC - April 2009 - Juki Corporation, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems, announces that it has been awarded a 2009 EMAsia Innovation Award in the category of Pick and Place Systems/Equipment (Low/Medium Volume) for its JX-100. The award was presented to the company during an April 22, 2009 ceremony that took place at The Foyer outside the Grand Ballroom of the Shanghai Everbright International Hotel during Nepcon China 2009.

Featuring superior cost performance, versatility, reliable quality and easy operation, JX-100 is a batch machine originally designed for developing markets.�However, at its price point it is well suited for NPI and low volume/OEM applications. The system produces maximum effect with minimum investment, and combines high versatility with a reasonable price, is easy to operate, and has a small footprint. It is optimal for companies starting out in surface mount or considering a used machine.

Focusing on essential functions and achieving high productivity in a compact body at low cost, JX-100 uses the same highly accurate state-of-the-art laser centering found on higher end models. Featuring a smaller and lighter body, and a power-saving design, the mounter also has intelligent planning in the design that allows feeders and nozzles to be shared with other Juki models.

Able to place a range of component types that allows the production of a wide variety of circuit boards, the mounter provides superior flexibility that supports component sizes from 0402 (which are difficult to place by hand and inaccurate by lower end or used machines) up to 33.5 mm square. JX-100 also features an automatic tool changer, which allows nozzles to be automatically changed during manufacturing according to the type of components (standard equipment).

JX-100's excellent durability and stability result in high quality over a long machine life. Additional features include component centering technology using laser, high-quality check function, and a highly rigid frame that resists vibration and supports accurate placement for many years.

Easy operation for entry-level operators is a significant benefit for users. A faster learning curve enables quick introduction of the JX-100 to any factory. It also features simplified data entry and a fully graphical touch panel that reduces the need for language-specific text. A touch screen is standard for easy operation by operators with little computer experience.
