The latest innovations to boost speed and accuracy all along the line

Yamaha Motor Robotics SMT Section is bringing its 1 STOP SMART SOLUTION to SMTconnect 2023 in Nuremberg, May 9-11, with innovations to ease program generation, cut cycle time, and accelerate product changes.


Promoting its collaboration with ANS-ANSWER ELEKTRONIK, the appointed regional distributor for Germany, Yamaha will be at booth 245, hall 4. The presentation showcases the YSP10 printer, YSi-SP solder-paste inspection system, YRM20 mounter, and YRi-V Automatic Optical Inspection (AOI) system. A special software area will highlight YSUP tools for machine control, smart factory management, and AOI programming.

“SMTconnect is a valuable opportunity to make new connections and strenghten our bonds with existing customers and contacts,” said Daisuke Yoshihara, Sales General Manager at Yamaha Motor Europe, Robotics Division. “We’re pleased to extend cooperation with our distributor by sharing space this year. As always, our experts will be there to help visitors discover how Yamaha’s solutions save labour, raise quality, and increase productivity.”

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. The YRM20 is Yamaha’s latest-generation high-speed mounter, with up to 115,000 cph 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, 4D camera algorithms to spot hard-to-find defects, and high-speed image processing, for superior speed and accuracy.

In the software area, visitors can see how Yamaha’s YSUP tools maximise 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.
