As globalization of supply chains is intensifying competition among companies, SMT production sites are facing an urgent need for transforming the Quality, Cost and Delivery (QCD), plus the Environment (E) framework. However, in addition to high-mix production becoming normal, the chronic shortage in labor continues. Because of this, keeping OEE might become difficult with the same work methods and production methods as used previously.
At this exhibition, we will showcase a variety of the latest solutions that integrate automation and systems to solve issues faced by customers. Also, we will introduce our image of what the SMT floor will look like in the near future through next-generation SMT solutions, for which we are advancing development aimed at achieving the ultimate labor-saving configuration for the SMT floor.
Additional investment can be made on the scale of single modules. You can gradually increase the production capacity to the necessary extent with minimal investment for each.
Note: Existing NXT feeders can be used.
Fuji's original compact lightweight heads can be easily exchanged without using tools. This allows operators to perform maintenance and troubleshoot unexpected problems.
Nozzles, feeders, and also heads are applicable for offline maintenance. Using automation units ensures reliable maintenance without requiring any skills. Linking these units with Nexim improves maintenance management.
The installed IPS system can cater to a wide range of checks, from part pickup stance to parts remaining on nozzles, as well as upside-down checks for minimold parts. It prevents placement defects attributed to packaging, nozzles, and parts.
Intelligent parts sensor (IPS)
The placement stroke follows changes in the placement height due to panel warpage and distortions, which allows the machine to control the appropriate push-in amount and moreover prevents placement deviations and excess stress on parts and panels.
Placement height adjustment
Various checks are available within placement machines to verify the process result shortly after that process: Checking placement immediately following placement, and checking placed parts before placing shield parts, for example. This prevents production of defective products and reduces wasted time and parts.
MPI check function
The newly-developed heads are capable of handling an expanded part range. They contribute to line balancing and flexible production without drops in production rates even when a different set of parts is used in the next production.
The panel size coverage is expanded so that panels up to 750 x 610 mm are supported "with single conveyors" and up to 370 x 280 mm "with double conveyors" when using dual lane production. From large panel production to highly-efficient production of producing panels in the same size, NXTR line configurations are capable of supporting a greater variety of production.
Because the Smart Loader performs changeover and part supply according to the schedule, the amount of work at the line side can be reduced and efficient production can be achieved.
Note: Under development
Waste tape is collected automatically into one place to reduce operator work that previously needed to be performed regularly for each module.
Note: Under development
Three points required for optimizing production
Maximize production by preparing and supplying materials without stopping the line.
It is possible to maximize production by maintaining stable operation and high placement quality.
Production output can be maximized by reducing excess and waste that occurs during production such as discarded parts and defects.
Sends error occurrences, warnings, and instructions for production lines to mobile devices.
Demonstrations using actual devices will be provided at the exhibition site.
