JUKI Releases New High-Speed Compact Modular Mounter “RX Series”
Juki recently launched the RX Series of high-speed compact modular mounters to improve productivity by 58 percent.

Because this mounter is equipped with “head units” that pick up components and place them on PWBs on both the rear and front sides, the head units on the front and rear sides repeat picking up and placing components in turn, reducing loss of work, and almost doubling the productivity. Additionally, applicable IC component height and the supported PWB size is increased, allowing the machine to support various types of production such as mounting of LEDs or PoPs.
The machine is equipped as standard JUKI’s original technology, the “Placement Monitor analyze function,” which has been in a great demand until now and shoots a picture of a pick-up/placement of a component to allow you to monitor the mounting process in details. Therefore, it can prevent a failure substrate from going on the market or analyze its cause and quickly take the appropriate countermeasures.

While the size and weight of the mounter are reduced, it has two “Super Rotary Heads” equipped with 16 nozzles for picking up/placing each component on a PWB. This feature achieves superior performance:
Additionally, the camera installed inside the head detects a tombstone problem or component absence to realize high-speed and high-quality component placement.
Recent SMT applications have been diversified from a smart device such as a smartphone to an automotive Engine Control Unit (ECU), a medical device and a digital consumer electronics device, and electronics circuit boards have become smaller, denser and more functional.
The RX Series platform achieves high productivity and high flexibility, enabling placement of a wide variety of components. Additionally, its high quality prevents faulty substrates from being manufactured or moving to the next stage of the process. Finally, its reduced size allows effective use of factory space.
