Compact and claiming to improve productivity per space of a packaging factory by 58%, the JX Series of modular mounters has been announced by JUKI.
The RX-6 is a mounter which can place on PWBs a wide variety of components from chip components, such as subminiature components to large IC components or odd-shaped components. Succeeding the KE series of flexible mounters, the RX-6 has improved component placement speed and its size has been reduced.
Equipped with 'head units', these units on the front and rear sides repeat picking up and placing components in turn, reducing loss of work, and almost doubling the productivity. Additionally, applicable IC component height and the supported PWB size is increased, allowing the machine to support various types of production such as mounting of LEDs or PoPs.
Available with JUKI's standard technology, the “Placement Monitor analyze function” shoots a picture of a pick-up/placement of a component to allow you to monitor the mounting process in details. Therefore, it can prevent a failure substrate from going on the market or analyze its cause and quickly take the appropriate countermeasures.
While the size and weight of the mounter are reduced, it has two “Super Rotary Heads” equipped with 16 nozzles for picking up/placing each component on a PWB. This feature achieves superior performance: 75,000 CPH. The “parallel head configuration” is used for the heads, and it also improves the production capability of the mounter. Additionally, the camera installed inside the head detects a tombstone problem or component absence to realize high-speed and high-quality component placement.
