Mycronic expands next-generation MYPro series with compact new MY300 pick-and-place models
Mycronic AB (publ) launches a series of new compact, high-capacity MY300 pick-and-place machines at SMT Hybrid Packaging in Nuremberg, Germany, May 16-18, 2017.
The MYPro series is the result of Mycronic’s strategic product development within Business Area Assembly Solutions, focused on enabling the future of electronics with advanced production equipment. The SMT MY300 machine is the second release in the next-generation MYPro series. Recently, the Dispensing Division within Assembly Solutions launched the MY700 high-speed jet dispenser for solder paste and assembly fluids. The MY300 offers 40 percent higher space-productivity than previous models, making it possible to handle a wider range of components within a smaller machine footprint.
High-mix and high volume SMT manufacturers face growing product mixes and factory space constraints, together with a wider variety of miniaturized components. To meet these challenges, and as part of the Mycronic 4.0 intelligent factory solution, Mycronic is releasing the MY300 to increase productivity in a broad range of complex applications. The MYPro series allows Mycronic to address a larger market and an expanded array of SMT assembly applications.
MY300 – Boosting productivity within a 40 percent smaller footprint
The new MY300 provides a 40 percent smaller footprint than previous models. It also achieves higher speeds due to automatic job selection, rolling changeovers, as well as faster board transfer and tool changes. Throughput is increased significantly thanks to simultaneous assembly of multiple boards. Additionally, the improved linescan vision system ensures a future-proof solution for the most advanced components.
“Demands are constantly on the rise for higher degrees of automation, more component varieties and increased overall productivity – particularly among high-mix manufacturers”, says Robert Göthner, VP SMT, Assembly Solutions. “The MY300, built on a new compact and user-friendly platform design meets all of these needs for manufacturers of electronics.”
The MY300 will be available in three different models. the MY300DX, the MY300SX and the MY300LX, offering a wide range of highly automated line configurations for any intelligent factory.
