MYDATA launches the new MY200 series placement machines at Productronica

Nov 15, 2013

The new MY200 performance series of placement machines features a new Linescan vision system and HYDRA 4 mount head with twice the accuracy. The new platform includes hardware and software advancements that give customers higher throughput, enhanced quality and improved line utilization.

The new MY200 performance series of placement machines features a new Linescan vision system and HYDRA 4 mount head with twice the accuracy. The new platform includes hardware and software advancements that give customers higher throughput, enhanced quality and improved line utilization.

Productronica 2013: The new MY200 performance series features a new linescan vision system and a new high-speed mount head, delivering twice the accuracy and higher throughput.

The increasingly varied and complex electronic content in cars, phones, tablets and other electronic devices is driving a need to mount diverse components on PCBs with uncompromising accuracy - at high speed. It is also adding to the pressure on electronic manufacturers to handle shorter batch sizes and unpredictable delivery schedules. To solve these challenges, MYDATA, the global innovator of surface mount solutions, says it is introducing a new, improved range of surface mount machines called the MY200 performance series. 

A new platform for the future

Scheduled for release at Productronica 2013 in Munich (Nov. 12 – 15, Booth A3 241), the new MY200 series brings a whole new level of performance to the company’s pick-and-place equipment. “We’re very pleased to be able to present this new platform. The MY200-series contains new and very advanced technologies, including new hardware and software that give our customers higher throughput, higher accuracy and improved line utilization. Yet again we have implemented these improvements without sacrificing on compatibility with our current machine platform,” says Robert Göthner, General Manager Business Area SMT at Micronic Mydata.

Meeting greater need for “high-mix capacity”

The company says the new machines bring the signature “high-mix capabilities” for which MYDATA is well known to a new category of higher throughput producers who are demanding greater flexibility. The suite of machines includes a solution for every production scenario – from short runs and prototyping to multi-machine in-line solutions for around-the-clock manufacturing. The two major improvements on the new MY200 machines are: a new high-performance component inspection and positioning system - Linescan Vision System 3 (LVS3); and a new high-speed mount head for highly accurate placement of the latest component technologies - HYDRA 4.

‘Triple effect’ with new linescan camera

The beauty of the new vision system is that it gives our customers a three-fold positive impact on production by including our most advanced vision technologies into one unit,” says Mattias Jonsson, Product Manager pick-and-place equipment.  He notes that the new system combines the advanced programmable illumination of the Dual Vision System with the well-known image quality and speed of the linescan camera. Thanks to an automated teaching process and adaptive algorithms, the LVS3 enables the system to generate much higher quality images. Together with the linescan camera’s ability to take 50,000 images a second, it vastly improves capabilities for high-speed, on-the-fly inspection and alignment of complex components. “Really this means a boosting of line speed since a wider array of component types can run in high-speed mode, leading to fewer false rejects and errors.”

Doubling of accuracy with new HYDRA 4 mount head

In addition to the vision system, the new MY200 machines will be equipped with a new HYDRA 4 mount head that is twice as accurate as the previous HYDRA mount heads. Due to improvements both in mechanical design and software processing, the machine can offer high-speed placement repeatability of less than 30 μm at 3-sigma. “What all these improvements mean is that MY200 customers will be getting a higher throughput, so they can run at full speed with high precision and no risk of errors. Rated line speed is one thing, but what’s really important in a live production environment is how many boards get produced by the end of the day,” says Jonsson.

Versatile and easily upgradeable, the new MY200 range includes the following:

  • MY200HX - High-speed chip and low-profile IC mounter. Featuring up to 160 feeder positions with a top speed of 50,000 components per hour.
  • MY200DX - High-speed all-in-one mounter. Featuring up to 160 feeder positions with a top speed of 40,000 components per hour.
  • MY200SX - Flexible all-in-one mounter. Featuring up to 176 feeder positions with a top speed of 24,000 components per hour.
  • MY200LX - All-in-one mounter. Featuring up to 176 feeder positions with a top speed of 16,000 components per hour.
