The SMT Section has created Yamaha’s Total Line Solution that provides a selection of equipment models to handle every aspect of assembling printed circuit boards, including stencil printer, 3D solder paste inspection (SPI) and 3D automatic optical inspection (AOI) machines, dispenser, high-speed pick-and-place machines, and intelligent component storage system. Moreover, SMT Section’s flip-chip pick & place machine family extends Yamaha’s reputation for precision and reliability beyond PCB production and into semiconductor manufacturing by supporting advanced back-end packaging. These systems leverage Yamaha’s core expertise in fields such as servo-motor drives used in precision motion controls and feeder indexing, and image recognition. Multiple on-board machine-vision systems help ensure perfect alignment of the stencil and PCB before printing, check for correct orientation of all parts before placement on the PCB, ensure super-accurate mounting, and finally inspect all assemblies to capture important manufacturing data. The Yamaha Total Line Solution for surface-mount assembly production presents flexible, modular choices for customers to maximise their production capacity and capabilities.
