The FX-2 high-speed chip mounter is Juki’s latest high-speed modular mounter with production capacity increased by 20 percent over previous models, improved economical efficiency, operations and reliability. The FX-2 supports centering and placement of components from 0402 (01005) to 33.5 mm sq.
Efficient, high-speed production lines can be created by connecting a high speed FX-3 or general purpose mounter such as the KE-2080. The FX-2 uses the same nozzles, feeders and production data as other Juki mounters, providing better use of assets and simpler operations on the production floor.
