IWATA, January 7, 2016—Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. (Tokyo:7272) announced today that two new surface mounters*1 will be launched in the first quarter of 2016. The premium modular Σ(Sigma)-F8S will be launched on April 1, and the high-efficiency modular Z:LEX YSM20W on February 1.
The Σ-F8S, a new model of premium modular “Σ” series, is an evolutionary advancement of the Σ-F8. The existing model employs a rotary direct drive head to achieve 150,000 CPH*2 (in optimum conditions), the world’s fastest level. The Σ-F8S achieves an effective 5% tact improvement on average and greater productivity compared to the existing version, and with its improved mounting accuracy this new model is also capable of handling the extremely small-sized 0201 (0.25 x 0.125 mm) chip components.
The second new model, the Z:LEX YSM20W, retains the flexibility and efficiency across a range of diverse production conditions and the same high-speed capability, component handling, and scalability as the high-efficiency Z:LEX YSM20 mounter. In addition, the Z:LEX YSM20W is a Z:LEX wide-body model that features significantly increased PCB adaptability, and which can handle up to extra-large-sized PCB's larger than L size*3, and larger than M size*3 PCB's in dual-lane production.
The new Σ-F8S and the Z:LEX YSM20W will be on display at the 45th INTERNEPCON JAPAN trade show for electronics manufacturing and surface mount technology (SMT) to be held from January 13-15, 2016 at the Tokyo Big Sight (Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo).
Surface mounters: Production equipment designed to mount various electrical components onto PCB's (Printed Circuit Boards), which are then incorporated into electronic products.
CPH (Chips Per Hour): Total number of chips that can be mounted per hour (unit time). Indicates processing capability under various conditions.
L Size=510 mm x 460 mm, M Size=330 mm x 250 mm. Both sizes are Yamaha Motor standards
