Ultra-High-Speed Rotary Head Achieves World-Leading 200,000 CPH
Yamaha Motor IM Europe announces the release of the new Z:TA-R YSM40R surface mounter, which boasts the fastest production in the world at 200,000 CPH.
The Z:TA-R YSM40R is an ultra-high-speed modular mounter that has been developed under the Revolutionary productivity concept. With the adoption of a 1m-wide compact platform with a 4-beam 4-head layout, and the combination of high-speed production with flexible and versatile production formats, this new model will be the successor of the current high-density modular Z:TA YSM40.
While providing the functionality of a rotary head, the newly developed ultra-high-speed RS (Revolutionary Speed) head is also capable of simultaneous pickup. With the adoption of new high-speed algorithms, the synergistic effect of faster control of the servo motor and the ZS feeder allows the new model to deliver a mounting speed of 200,000 CPH – the fastest in the world – while also realizing an outstanding surface area and line length productivity.
Placement accuracy and mounting reliability is also improved due to the adoption of a new high-rigidity base frame, new light-weight X beam, and a newly-developed high-speed side view camera that checks the status of components in real time immediately after pickup, and before and after mounting. All of these improvements enable the Z:TA-R YSM40R to be compatible with extremely small-sized components down to 0201 (0.25mm x 0.125mm).
In addition, machine stoppage losses have significantly decreased and improved production rates achieved thanks to the adoption of new features in Nozzle Health Care that perform nozzle self-diagnosis and self-restoration without interrupting production. Enhanced precision of automatic components data generation functions such as e-Vision that help prevent pickup and recognition errors – which have been standard features since previous models – have also contributed to decreased machine stoppage losses.
The Z:TA-R YSM40R has been displayed at the NEPCON China 2016, an electronics manufacturing and mounting technology exhibition held from April 26 to 28, 2016 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition And Convention Center (Shanghai Pudong New Area).
