Yamaha Motor IM launches Z:LEX YSM20W with largest PCB Capability
Yamaha Motor IM Europe announces that the high efficiency modular Z:LEX YSM20W has been launched on February 1st, 2016.
The Z:LEX YSM20W, retains the flexibility and efficiency across a range of diverse production conditionsand the same high-speed capability, component handling, and scalability as the high-efficiency Z:LEX SM20 mounter. In addition, the Z:LEX YSM20W is a Z:LEX wide-body model that features significantly increased PCB adaptability, and which can handle extra-large-sized PCB’s up to L810 x W742 mm. YSM20W is the largest dual lane machine with 2 x 356 mm board width.
The new Z:LEX YSM20W has been displayed at the 45th INTERNEPCON JAPAN trade show for electronics manufacturing and surface mount technology (SMT) last January 13-15, 2016 in Tokyo.
In recent years, miniaturization, high-densification, high functionality, and diversification as well as shortened product cycles have increasingly accelerated for a variety of products such as consumer electronics, personal computers, and mobile telephones. Along with faster speeds, flexibility in order to efficiently accommodate small-scale varied production up to mass production on the same line is required in electronic component mounting processing for the above types of products.
A new edition in the Z:LEX series, the YSM20W, provides flexibility and efficiency in various forms of production without the need for replacing the head thanks to the “1 head-solution” concept. This new model is a wide-body version of the Z:LEX YSM20 universal modular, and it provides both high-speed and versatility at a high level. It is now capable of handling extra-large-sized PCB’s for automotive products, industrial, medical, power devices, and LED lighting etc. with its significantly increased adaptability to PCB sizes and weight. In addition to this, the dual-lane specification provides benefits from mass production in dual-lane production with its ability to handle not only small mobile device type small PCB work, but also PCB’s at larger than M sizes.
From mass high-speed production to highly-versatile multi-product capable production comes a complete surface mounter line-up that meets the changing needs of the market. Here, Yamaha Motor takes advantage of its full line-up of surface mounters, solder paste printing equipment, dispensers, and testing systems etc. to achieve improvements in quality and efficiency for production in all types of products through total line-up solutions that build synergies between mounting line equipment.
