Yamaha Propels SMT, Software Solutions at SMTconnect

Yamaha Surface Mount Technology (SMT) Section is bringing its 1 STOP SMART SOLUTION to SMTconnect 2023 in Nuremberg, May 9-11. Particularly, the company will bring with it innovations to ease program generation, cut cycle time, and accelerate product changes.

Yamaha will highlight its collaboration with ANS-ANSWER ELEKTRONIK, the company’s appointed regional distributor for Germany and co-exhibitor at the exhibition.

Accordingly, the presentation showcases the YSP10 printer, YSi-SP solder-paste inspection system, YRM20 mounter, and YRi-V Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) system. Meanwhile, a special software area will highlight YSUP tools for machine control, smart factory management, and AOI programming.

Daisuke Yoshihara, Sales General Manager at Yamaha Motor Europe, Robotics Division, said, “SMTconnect is a valuable opportunity to make new connections and strengthen our bonds with existing customers and contacts.”

In addition Yoshihara said, “As always, our experts will be there to help visitors discover how Yamaha’s solutions save labour, raise quality, and increase productivity.”

Boost Speed, Accuracy

The YSP10 printer combines Yamaha’s proven technologies for superior accuracy with advanced features including the fully automated stencil mechanism for faster, easier product changeovers. On the other hand, the YRM20 is Yamaha’s latest-generation high-speed mounter, with up to 115,000cph placement speed, dual-head capability, and automated features for non-stop changeovers.

The YRi-V inspection system handles modern, densely populated boards, with enhanced lighting. It also has 4D camera algorithms to spot hard-to-find defects, and high-speed image processing, for superior speed and accuracy.

Meanwhile, in the software area, visitors can see how Yamaha’s YSUP tools maximize the value of the 1 STOP SMART SOLUTION. Powerful features include the state-of-the-art 3D graphical interface and the richly featured dashboard for tracking equipment status and process performance.

Yamaha’s advanced AOI software generates inspection programs automatically and leverages AI to simplify component recognition and enhance image analysis.
