Automatic nozzle quality management for improving OEE
We introduce various management functions that utilize individual nozzle ID management technology, focusing on reducing equipment-related losses (availability losses, performance losses, and quality losses) that lower OEE.
Road to automating insertion processes – Key points to success and Fuji solutions –
We aim to provide companies that are looking to introduce automatic insertion machines and individuals who would like to know more about the automation of manual insertion processes with information concerning the latest robotics and current trends for insertion machines. We also provide check points from the point of view of a robotics manufacturer that should be covered when looking to select the right automatic insertion equipment.
Starting small in automating insertion processes using SCARA robots Panel Assembly Robot Cell – SmartWing BA
SmartWing BA is part of the Fuji SmartWing series of small articulated robots that make it possible to automate various processes in a factory. SmartWing BA is a Robot Cell package solution that includes the functions required for panel assembly processes.
Preventing incorrect parts from being placed – LCR check
This is used to check whether the correct parts are set by measuring the LCR value of the first part in specified reels that have been newly set or replaced, or reels for which parts have been replenished by replacing the feeders or splicing tape.
Solutions for issues in high density placement – Introducing the placement height adjustment function
The annual amount of data generated by the world's IoT devices is increasing every year, and the accompanying electricity consumption for data storage is expected to reach about 15% of the world's total electricity generation by 2030. Meanwhile, energy saving is an important issue for achieving SDGs and carbon neutrality and there is demand for smaller and higher-density panels that are used in all electronic devices, from mobile devices to automotive electronics, communication infrastructure, and servers. To achieve this, stable placement quality must be maintained in production using panels designed for space saving and economical wiring. This article introduces the placement height adjustment function, one of the solutions available for resolving issues in high density placement.
Automate Nozzle Cleaning, Inspection, and Setting – Smart Nozzle Cleaner
We are introducing Smart Nozzle Cleaner as a tool that allows operators to be free from such maintenance work and time while effectively using the required quantity of nozzles in a timely manner.
Using Top View Recognition to Prevent Part Setting Mistakes
There are times when an operator may set the wrong part type or set parts in the incorrect supply direction when supplying parts to the machine. For example, when setting trays to a tray drawer there can be cases in which the incorrect parts are set or the supply direction may be wrong such as when a tray is set in the wrong direction or if someone has returned parts that have come out back into the tray by hand.
Improving Placement Quality on Flexible Printed Circuits | Introducing Target On Paste (TOP) Placement
Fuji’s target on paste (TOP) placement solution that utilizes the effects of self-alignment, and is effective for preventing defective placements on FPC caused by the aforementioned positioning deviations.
Introducing the new Laser-type Lead Check Unit
High cost performance and focuses on checking leaded parts that are easily warped by external influences such as SOPs, QFPs, and connectors.
Maintaining High Quality amid Changes in SMT for Increasingly Complex Electronic Panels
This article will cover three areas that are important to improving quality in SMT processes and maintaining a high level of QCD, "Sure-fire pickup and placement", "Eliminating defective materials", and "Proper maintenance" with supporting data.
