Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. released its new high-efficiency modular surface mounter, the Z:LEX YSM20. This new surface mounter*1 has the versatility to cater to different production processes required for a wide variety of products, whilst achieving the world’s fastest mounting speed in its class (under optimum conditions)*2 at 90,000 CPH.*3 The Z:LEX YSM20 combines features found in four of our current models – the 2-beam, 2-head compact super-high-speed modular mounter YS24 and compact high-speed flexible modular mounter YS24X; the single-head, single-beam high-speed general-purpose modular mounter YS100; and the multi-functional wide-range modular mounter YS88. With the concept “1 head solution” – which enables compatibility with a wide range of components, from small chips and large components, with one type of head – the new model achieves excellent production efficiency by providing not only high productivity, but also compatibility with a multitude of components. The new model also allows production changeovers to be carried out with ease. In addition to the universal platform (with 2-beam or single-beam options available for the X-axis configuration), the Z:LEX YSM20 allows customers to select a variety of specifications – such as the head, tape feeder,*4 conveyor system, and tray supply unit – to enable mounting line configurations optimized for the customers’ production processes.

The new model was named “Z:LEX”, as the letter “Z” evokes a sense of ultimateness, and “Limitless EXpansion” captures the new model’s limitless compatibility.
To mark the release of our new mounter, the Z:LEX YSM20 will be exhibited at the 16th JISSO PROTEC Show to be held in the Tokyo Big Sight (Koto Ward, Tokyo) on June 4-6.

*1: Surface mounter (surface mount technology (SMT) machine): Manufacturing machine for mounting various electric/electronic components on the printed circuit boards (PCBs) used in electrical appliances and electronic devices.
*2: Components mounting speed (CPH) for a surface mounter with the 2-beam, 2-head layout. Based on YMC survey as at May 2014.
*3 CPH (Chips Per Hour): Total number of chips that can be mounted per hour (unit time). Indicates processing capability under various conditions.
*4: Tape feeder: Device that supplies chips (electronic components) to the surface mounter that are packaged on a tape.
