Yamaha Motor Intelligent Machines has secured a global agreement with Carel Industries to supply high-speed surface-mount systems.

The agreement was finalised after Carel management visited Yamaha global headquarters in Hamamatsu to review facilities for design, production and customer support. Inspired by Yamaha’s advanced capabilities, processes, and the capacity to build high volumes of equipment to exacting quality standards.

At the meeting in Dusseldorf, the Carel team drew further inspiration from seeing the latest Yamaha YC8 final-assembly machine in action. Following this demonstration, the two companies are now co-operating to automate processes currently performed manually, such as through-hole and odd-form placement, taking advantage of the YC8’s advanced on-board vision, robot-derived motion controls, and flexible feeding and handling systems.

The Yamaha YS series is a complete, intelligent SMT assembly system comprising the YSP precision printer, modular high-speed, general-purpose and wide-range component mounters offering placement capability up to 72k-50k cph (IPC9850), and the YSi-12 and YSi-S high-speed precision hybrid inspectors for inline or standalone AOI.

Key features of the YS series include advanced print capabilities with print stability control, vision inspection and 3S head for optimum process control, compact mounter dimensions for superb area productivity and large feeder capacity, and Yamaha’s advanced Multiple Accuracy Compensation System for consistent precision.

As a complete, intelligent system, the YS SMT line benefits from productivity-boosting features such as one-click AOI program creation. Yamaha’s control and monitoring software unifies the YS line, promoting seamless interactions, helping minimise setup and changeover times, and supporting traceability and continuous improvement.

Carel will use the equipment to build computerised controllers, electronic compressor drives, and networking and sensing modules used in its advanced air-conditioning and refrigeration systems for industrial, data-centre, and consumer markets.

About Yamaha Robotics 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. Furthermore, the Company has used its core technologies in the areas of servo-motor control and image recognition technology for vision (camera) systems to develop solder paste printers, 3D solder paste inspection, 3D PCB inspection machines, flip chip hybrid placers and dispensers. This allows Yamaha SMT Section to offer a full line of machines for electric/electronic parts mounting and propose optimum production-line makeup to answer the diversifying needs of today’s manufacturers.

Yamaha SMT Section has sales and service offices in Japan, China, Southeast Asia, Europe and North America provide a truly global sales and service network that will safeguard best in class on-site sales & service support for clients.
