Juki will debut the JX-100LED, an enhanced JX-100 designed to support boards up to 31.5 x 14" when indexed twice in the machine. Targeted specifically for LED manufacturing, the JX-100LED features new algorithms created for the placement of side-view type LEDs, top-view LEDs, rectangular ferrite chip-type and PLCC-type LEDS, making it the ideal low-cost placement solution for LED chips in fast growing markets such as laptop computers, LCD backlights, and a variety of lighting equipment.
The JX-100LED placement system uses the same state-of-the-art, high-resolution, optical vision centering placement technology found throughout the entire Juki product line. Components are rotated 360° in the laser. Also, the system supports an automatic tool changer, which enables a variety of nozzles to be automatically changed during manufacturing.
With speed in mind, the JX-100LED can place 15,300 chips per hour at IPC 9850 and support the placement of parts from 01005 to 33.5mm2. Additionally, the JX-100LED features an optional tri-colored vision centering system that can be used for placing fine-pitch QFPs, BGAs and QFNs for added flexibility and accuracy.
The JX-100LED comes standard with a three-year parts and one-year labor warranty.
The KE-1080 is a sixth generation high-speed modular flexible mounter. Built on the one-piece SuperCast™ single casting base that includes the Y beams, the KE-1080 is designed with speed, accuracy and reliability in mind. The mounter features one multi-nozzle laser head (four nozzles) plus one high resolution head.
Combined with the new LNC-60 high-resolution 360° component laser centering system and an improved magnascale resolution down to 1 mm, the KE-1080 is 25 percent more accurate than previous models capable of placing down to 01005 components. The KE-1080 has an IPC 9850 speed of 14,100CPH for chips / 3,400CPH ICs.
The KE-1080 comes standard with a three-year parts and one-year labor warranty.
The FlexSolder W510 inline uses the same technology that has been so successful in the past but with a new flexible design, allowing the machine to be assembled anywhere and to allow complete option upgrades in the field. The advantage of the Juki selective soldering machine over competitors remains the same as in past machines with the ability to have multiple mini-wave nozzles soldering simultaneously, or even better, running separately using two different sized nozzles. The advantage is that a nozzle as small as 1.8 mm can be used for tight areas (1 mm away from SMD or other components) on densely populated boards and a larger nozzle for making single passes on large connectors. This adds much needed flexibility to the process, allowing various soldering options with no changeover.
Juki Corporation’s experience as the market leader in industrial sewing machines was the stepping-stone for the entry into the printed circuit board assembly market in 1987. Since then, Juki has delivered more than 22,000 automated assembly systems worldwide and is currently shipping an average of 200 assembly machines per month. This extraordinary achievement makes Juki one of the world’s leading providers of automated assembly products and systems. In addition to its core technologies, Juki’s Electronic Assembly and Test Systems Division develops and manufactures advanced electronic systems and computer software for data entry, mail processing and other electronic equipment.
With the purchase of Zevatech’s assets in November 1999, Juki Automation Systems now brings Juki’s reputation for top quality and reliable service also to the North and South American and the European electronics assembly markets. Juki recognizes the challenges of the new century and is prepared to respond to the globalization of electronic manufacturing. With a sophisticated knowledge base, advanced technologies and a high commitment to its customers, Juki is poised for continued growth in the 21st century.
