The Yamaha Z:LEX YSM20 High Specification, High Output, Dual Gantry Pick and Place Mounter will be one of the products displayed by Altus Group at the What’s New in Electronics Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham (May 9-10). Z:LEX YSM20 caters to different production processes required for a wide variety of products, and features the world's fastest mounting speed in its class (under optimum conditions) at 90,000 CPH.
It also has the benefit of combining features found in Yamaha’s models - the 2-beam, 2-head compact super-high-speed modular mounter YS24 and compact high-speed flexible modular mounter YS24X; the single-head, single-beam high-speed general-purpose modular mounter YS100; and the multi-functional wide-range modular mounter YS88.
The concept "1 head solution" - which enables compatibility with a wide range of components, from small chips and large components, with one type of head - the new model achieves excellent production efficiency by providing not only high productivity, but also compatibility with a multitude of components.
It also allows production changeovers to be carried out with ease.
In addition to the universal platform the Z:LEX YSM20 allows customers to select a variety of specifications - such as the head, tape feeder, conveyor system, and tray supply unit - to enable mounting line configurations optimised for the customers' production processes.
Altus will also present equipment from some of the world’s leading manufacturers, including Koh Young’s Zenith Full 3D AOI and Measurement (metrology based) system and KSMART system, YJ Links ACI-10 Post AOI 3D visual Inspection (review) system and Inspection Conveyor, with Optilia; Nikon X-Ray.
