Yamaha Plans European Reveal of New YSP10 Printer Featured for Automated Changeovers

Reading time ( words)

Yamaha Motor Europe SMT section will showcase the latest innovations from its Total Line Solution for high-productivity surface-mount assembly, including the richly automated new YSP10 screen printer, at 2019 SMTconnect show, Nuremberg, May 7-9.

Headlining at Yamaha’s booth, 319, hall 4, the YSP10 minimizes the most time-consuming part of the screen-print process with new features for fully automated changeovers. Automatic push-up pin exchange, stencil replacement, and solder-paste gathering for direct transfer to the new stencil cut human intervention to an all-time low. Cycle time is also 20% faster, setting the world’s best tact time, and the enlarged standard maximum board size of 510mm x 510mm handles large display-backlight panels, industrial boards, and more with ease.

Alongside the advanced printer, Yamaha will demonstrate precision solder-paste inspection with the YSi-SP. Proprietary high-speed algorithms accelerate the 2D and 3D inspection modes, and switchable super-high resolution gives extra accuracy where needed. YSi-SP captures the data needed for deeper insights into the print process that reveal new ways of boosting productivity, and integrates smoothly with other equipment in the Yamaha Total Line Solution to put the results of analysis into action.

Next on the booth, the YSM20R high-speed modular mounter combines Yamaha’s one-head solution that minimizes reconfiguration stoppages with component recognition on the move and placement of the latest 0201 (0.25mm x 0.125mm) SMD chips to enhance capability and efficiency. Increased structural rigidity allows higher X-Y axis speeds, contributing to 5% greater throughput compared to the YSM20. Auto-Loading Feeders and the Auto Tray Sequencer for non-stop tray replacement make the most of the YSM20R’s superior mounting speed of 95,000 cph.

Bringing everything together, the YSi-V post-placement inspection system demonstrates the latest features including a full-HD LCD touch panel with enhanced navigation for programming and character-recognition algorithms to boost usability. The 12-Mpixel camera combines unbeatable performance with great value, consolidating 2D, 3D, and oblique-angled inspection for coplanarity and height as a single cost-effective unit. Also featuring Yamaha’s exclusive image-capture technology, the YSi-V delivers more than double the inspection capability of ordinary inspection systems.

With the Factory Tools 4.0 software suite, the most complete software solution for Industry 4.0, completing the digital connection of machines, materials, humans, and method, Yamaha will demonstrate how its True Total Line Solution fulfils production demands from entry level, through high-mix medium/high-volume up to ultra-mass production.

Engineering and sales experts will be available throughout the event, at hall 4, booth 319, May 7-9, to guide visitors through all Yamaha’s solutions to power the future of high-tech manufacturing.

About Yamaha SMT Section

Yamaha Surface Mount Technology (SMT) Section is a subdivision of Yamaha Motor Robotics Business Unit in Yamaha Motor Corporation. Yamaha surface mount equipment is highly acclaimed in the market for their “module concept” that enables them to keep pace with the trend toward smaller and more diverse electric/electronic parts being mounted on circuit boards.

Yamaha SMT Section has created a strong business in the surface mount industry that enables design and engineering, manufacture, sales and service to be conducted in one comprehensive system.

Comparing Soldering Results of ENIG and EPIG Post-steam Exposure

09/11/2019 | Jon Bengston and Richard DePoto, Uyemura International USA
Electroless nickel immersion gold (ENIG) is now a well-regarded finish used to enhance and preserve the solderability of copper circuits. Electroless palladium immersion gold (EPIG), meanwhile, is a new surface finish also for enhancing and preserving solderability—but with the advantage of eliminating electroless nickel from the deposit layer. This feature has become increasingly important with the increasing use of high-frequency PCB designs whereby nickel’s magnetic properties are detrimental.

Solder Mask Evolves into a Truly Additive Process

09/09/2019 | John Fix, Taiyo America Inc.
The 5G era is creating quite a bit of work for many PCB engineers as the materials required to keep up with the speed, frequency, and latency requirements need to be defined and qualified. Solder mask, for example, now becomes a truly additive process. Read on to find out how and why.

Selecting the Proper Flex Coverlayer Material

09/06/2019 | Dave Lackey, American Standard Circuits
Coverlayers are polymer materials used to cover and protect the copper traces of the flex circuit product. There are a number of different options available for protecting the circuits, and they serve different design requirements in terms of cost, performance, and flexural endurance optimization. When specifying the choice, it is critical to call out not just the type of coverlayer material but also the thickness requirement. This can be very important in certain types of constructions, especially when a flex circuit will experience dynamic flexing during use.
