Z:TA-R / YSM40R modular surface mounter.

Yamaha IM America, in partnership with Trans-Tec Worldwide, will exhibit dynamic new SMT assembly technology in Booth #2317 at IPC/APEX 2017 next week.

On exhibit will be the new ultra‐high‐speed Z:TA-R / YSM40R modular surface mounter, which boasts the fastest placement rates and area productivity, at an unmatched 200,000 CPH: the fastest in the world.

The YSM40R was developed using a revolutionary productivity concept. With the adoption of a 1m‐wide compact platform, a 4‐beam layout and Yamaha’s multi nozzle Rotary Head, the highest speeds and area productivity are achieved. The combination of high‐speed production with flexible and versatile production formats makes this machine uniquely suited to the ever-changing and challenging demands of OEM and contract assemblers.

With the YSM40R, Yamaha has incorporated the functionality of a high speed rotary head design within an ultra-compact platform. While providing the speed of a rotary head, the newly developed ultra‐high‐speed head is also capable of simultaneous pickup as well as simultaneous vision recognition of all components on the head at once.

YAMAHA will also exhibit the i-Pulse M20, making its Yamaha debut at APEX. It’s the first introduction of the popular i-Pulse line to Yamaha and TransTec. The Hybrid/Modular M20 offers a number of unique, standard features including: maximum board handling capacity of 1,480mm; a Multi-Conveyor System; class-leading component range (01005 to 120 x 90 mm, up to 30mm height) and high feeder capacity, offering fast and easy setup.

The M20 also has optional 3D hybrid placement functions such as an integrated pulse or screw type dispenser, part on part capability and placement force control.

This feature-packed machine includes extra-large PCB handling that can be increased from 1,480mm to 1,800mm, making it the perfect machine for applications such as long LED boards. Extended component height along with overall dimension and capability expands the range of place-able components, making the M20 the most flexible and capable machines ever offered from I-Pulse.

The M20 is available in 4 and 6 head configurations to suit capacity and technology demands. The range of feeder bank and optional tray handling configurations allows very fast product change-over where a maximum of 180 feeders can be used on optional 45 position feeder carts.

As part of the full integration into Yamaha’s product line, the M-Series now has complete feeder interchangeability with our YS and YSM product lines.

Other systems on display in the YAMAHA booth will include the following:

• Z:LEX YSM20 – mid range placement

• Sigma G5S

• YC8 Odd-Form placement

• YSiV – 3D AOI

• YCP10 Mid-Range Printer

• YSP High-End Printer

Show visitors can stop by the booth to set up appointments for individual equipment demonstrations.
