JUKI introduces JX-350, a long board SMT placement machine. JX-350 is the successor to JUKI’s LED dedicated mounter JX-300LED, and significantly improves the placing ability of diffusion lenses for LED production. By reducing the weight of the beam and revising the head drive control, its placement speed increased by 18% to 32,000cph compared to the previous model.
Additionally, the component capability has expanded remarkably. By incorporating a newly developed screw type nozzle (option), it can place six pieces of large components up to 25mm diameter or diffusion lenses simultaneously. The screw type nozzle improves productivity by performing pick, recognition and placement all in one pass for the six nozzles, which was previously done in two passes.
Placement range is a maximum of 650mm in one clamp (previous model max 610mm) and 1,200mm in two clamps (standard specification). The machine can handle up to 1,500mm board, making it suitable for long board production such as LED lighting.
Users can select either electric or mechanical feeder for supply method, enabling them to utilise their existing assets. Matrix Tray Server TR5S is also available as an option for supplying a tray component from rear side bank. JUKI promotes the JX-350 long board SMT placement machine as a solution for LED and various other long board productions.
