Twice the possibilities
The future of SMT production is increasingly complex. Denser boards, a wider range of miniaturized components, more NPIs and erratic production schedules. As these high-mix challenges go mainstream, real productivity and throughput suffer. And we’ve only just seen the beginning. At Mycronic, we’ve devoted decades of experience to solving precisely these challenges. With the industry’s fastest, most flexible and most precise jet printing and solder paste dispensing systems.
Reasons to choose a jet PCB printer
As quality requirements increase, batch sizes shrink and component complexity grows, jet printing of solder paste has become a reliable alternative to screen printing for manufacturers concerned about PCB defects.
Mycronic jet printing technology makes it possible to dispense solder paste for the most challenging circuit boards and components, with micrometer accuracy, maximum speed and perfect quality solder joints.
Thanks to unique ejector technologies, the MY700 Jet Printer’s performance speaks for itself: jetprint up to more than one million dots per hour, with a 35 µm repeatability at 3σ and with dot diameter as small as 210 µm, and down to 1.9 nanoliter in volume.
Fully software-driven and stencil-free, with complete solder paste volume control, the MY700 Jet Printer ensures consistently perfect quality solder joints. From pin-in-paste to package-on-package, flexible substrates and board cavities, the MY700 handles all these jobs and more with total control of solder paste deposit size, volume, shape and position.
The MY700 high-speed jet printing platform dispenses solder paste and a wide vairety of other assembly fluids, and incorporates three highly productive machine models, each one with its own set of unique capabilities.
MY700JD – Jet Dispenser
MY700JP – Jet Printer
MY700JX – Jet Printer and Dispenser
A highly advanced motion system makes it possible to dispense fluids on-the-fly at 300 dots per second and 3g acceleration with superior accuracy. Dot volume, size and shape are easy to adjust and optimize for each individual component and pad on the board. The MY700 jet printer and dispenser is run on a software driven platform and requires no or little operator intervention resulting in a consistent and accurate result for each and every component on the board every time. The dual-lane option allows for efficient handling of boards in the line, eliminating board transfer times to virtually zero.
The MY700 is equipped with a state-of-the art vision system providing fiducial recognition on-the-fly and accurate laser height measurement to automatically compensate for board stretch and warpage, securing the quality of the dispensing result. All this in a compact package, accessible both front and rear, with a footprint of no more than one-and-a-half square meters.
The MY700 Jet Printer and Jet Dispenser is unbelievably fast, precise and allows you to produce complex boards with a speed of more than one million dots per hour. The MY700 handles flexible substrates, LED boards, cavities and package-on-package applications without hassle. Its non-contact nozzle that jetprints with high precision, makes every solder paste deposit perfect, reducing the need for re-working and increasing overall throughput. Dispensing glue or other assembly fluids with the same machine, in the same process step, saves space in the factory. Encapsulation, selective coating, dots and lines with epoxy, glue or other assembly fluids are impressively fast.
The MY700 is a 100% software driven platform and allows you to prepare new jobs off-line in just minutes. Simply import CAD or Gerber data, optimize for any particularly challenging components, and cut your response time to your customer down to minutes instead of days. Simpler jobs can be prepared right at the machine for modifications on-the-fly. MY700 can easily be integrated into a fully automated production line, allowing for changes of product down to batch size one, with no human intervention. By logging each board’s bar code ID along with process data you’ll make sure you keep your production history safely stored and traceable.
Located in Toyota City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan Maruwa Electronics & Chemical have supplied electronic products to the automotive industry for 30 years. Mr. Tsuji, Executive Director explains that the days of mass production are over. In recent years, a monthly output of 5,000 units per series is considered a large order. High-mix, small-batch production is now crucial for survival with “batch size one” production as the ultimate goal.
By automating the production line, the various processes could be unified into one flow, so a single production line could build numerous products regardless of model. With a flexible production line that features a Jet Printer from Mycronic, the company can now eliminate inefficiencies related to lengthy changeovers that used to stop the line for 15 minutes.
A production process aimed at zero level inventories, reduced hidden running costs and improved material yield with over 30 %. The company could cut customer response time to as low as 4 hours delivery due to the increased flexibility and could also lower the company’s environmental load.
“This machine makes our company strong. It not only changes the way we make our products, but also how we train our people”, concludes Mr. Tsuji.
