Yamaha Motor releases compact high-speed modular YSM10

Iwata [Japan], Jan 11 : Yamaha Motor Corporation Ltd. On Wednesday announced that the new YSM10, compact high-speed modular surface mounter, will be available for purchase from February 1.

This new addition to the line-up is a compact, high-speed model with space-saving qualities, and provides a combination of component compatibility and versatility.

In addition to the high-end ultra-high-speed modular Z:TA-R YSM40R, and the upper-middle class all-round versatile high-efficiency modular Z:LEX YSM20, this new release enables the YSM series line-up to provide a range of optimum lines designed for a variety of production formats and scale sizes.

The YSM10 is newly developed based on the 'Three-One' concept and provides a combination of a mounting speed, a one-head-solution which does not require replacement and an integration of three models of the YS12 type into one platform.

While in pursuit of the ideal concept 1-head solution with versatility from small chips to large components, the new model also has a high-speed general-purpose head similar to that used in the Z:LEX YSM20, and a new generation servo system etc.

Simultaneously, the specifications of all three current models of the YS12 series have been integrated into one platform featuring the flexibility and mobility of the compact high-speed modular YS12; the partly simplified version of the compact economy-modular YS12P, and the highly-versatile compact modular YS12F.

In addition, pickup and recognition errors are suppressed along with reduced loss in machine stoppage due the integration of the common functionalities of the two high level machines, the Z:TA-R YSM40R and the Z:LEX YSM20 with their e-Vision for automatically creating and tracking component data, Smart Recognition for easily creating component data from complicated shapes, and Pickup MACS system for automatic correction of the component pickup position.

Yamaha Motor is set to exhibit the new YSM10 at the 46th Internepcon Japan Trade show for electronics manufacturing and surface-mounting technology (SMT), to be held from January 18 to January 20.
