Fiducial alignment on Juki | 18 December, 2014


I don't have any experience with Juki. Visited one of their booth recently and I was told they use a laser for alignment.

How does this work? Is there any advantage over the traditional vision alignment?

I had some of these before and they do a decent job. Laser alignment is ok for passive components. Compared to vision systems it has mainly disadvantages. If you have bended lead on IC for example, it wouldn;t catch it and it will place the part. I would recommend you to have a machine with vision in you Juki line(Juki might offer it as an option too)for your IC parts.

Since the Laser alignment bit is attached to the head and you don't have to move the part to a camera location, before placing the component on the board it is about the fastest method there is of getting accurate component alignment. With more modern vision /camera's on the head the advantage has probably decreased.
