MORRISVILLE, NC - Juki Corporation, a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems, announces that its KE-3020 features the company’s latest leading-edge technology for improved flexibility and production quality. The system supports both electronic and mechanical tape feeders and can handle boards up to 22” x 24".  With its multi-nozzle (six nozzles) laser head, the KE-3020 can achieve a rated IPC9850 speed of 17,100 cph and is capable of a component placement range from 01005 (0402 metric) to 74mm2. 

The KE-3020 adds a seventh high-resolution nozzle for handling larger parts and uses a three-color vision centering system, featuring bottom, side and back lighting that can view all ball and split recognition images for quick and accurate placement. Additionally, the KE-3020 has an IPC9850 rated speed of 2,200 cph for IC components when using the advanced vision centering /effective tact system and 5,800 cph for IC components using advanced vision centering with the Multi-Nozzle Vision Centering (MNVC) option.

The KE-3020 is compatible with all current Juki feeders and trolleys, resulting in seamless installations into existing Juki lines. It features powerful line optimization software and rugged trolley carts that make changeover quick and easy. The KE-3020 also features an auto-pick correction feature that 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.  This method is much faster and more accurate than manual data entry.

Juki manufactures high-quality SMT placement systems for use in the electronics manufacturing industry.  Renowned for producing reliable, flexible placement equipment that is easy to use and maintain, Juki has recently emerged as a significant player in the high-speed market. As the pioneer of the modular placement machine in the early 1990s, Juki has increased the speed of its machines while maintaining quick changeovers and high uptimes. Juki also is the first SMT placement manufacturer to offer a standard three-year full parts warranty on machines sold in the Americas and Europe. 

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.
