Yamaha Robotics SMT Section will team with its distributor ANS Elektronik to showcase innovations for high-speed surface mount assembly at SMTconnect 2024.

At the event in Nuremberg, Germany, June 11-13, experts from both companies will show visitors how advanced equipment from Yamaha’s 1 STOP SMART SOLUTION can raise productivity and quality control with automated features. These include the YRP10 printer, YRM20 mounter, YRi-V 3D AOI system, and new software including tools for inspection and troubleshooting.


On display at SMTconnect, the YRP10 printer is built on Yamaha’s ultra-rigid YR chassis for superior accuracy and repeatability. The printer’s cutting-edge features automate laborious procedures and ensure high speed, achieving cycle time of just six seconds and boosting accuracy by 20% to handle extremely small component sizes, spacing, and interconnect pitch.

Also at the booth, the YRM20 mounter is designed for efficient motion with fast and flexible component handling. Extensive automation of parts feeding, product changeovers, and nozzle management permits mounting up to 120,000 cph to meet customer demands for productivity and flexibility.
The YRi-V 3D AOI system appears with the latest upgrades including stopperless transfer for fast cycle time and sharp images, also leveraging the extra rigidity of the YR chassis. Camera options with up to 25Mpixel sensor and 5µm lens ensure high resolution and the 8-way projector provides shadow-free illumination. Also, new AI tools that help create component libraries simplify and accelerate programming.

The software area will showcase powerful capabilities including the latest YSUP software intelligent-factory tools that help operators schedule activities, handle exceptions, and keep production on target. In addition, YSUP Dashboard with award-winning automatic pickup-error diagnostics takes the guesswork out of troubleshooting. Visitors can also discover advanced AOI software features, including new multi-component alignment checking that eases programming to inspect arrayed components such as LED light sources and position sensors.

“Combining strengths with ANS Elektronik at SMTconnect enhances the experience for visitors as we have many important innovations to highlight at this year’s event,” said Daisuke Yoshihara, General Sales Manager, Yamaha Robotics SMT Section.

SMTconnect visitors can see the latest Yamaha technology and talk to the team at the ANS Elektronik booth, number 245 in Hall 4.
