With this machine the feeder can be fully automated. Newly developed cassette-type feeders can hold tape reels in inside and the new Smart Loader automatically distributes the feeders to right positions with right timing. Thus, operators are free from feeder exchange work as well as part supply work. The integrated production support software, Nexim, has an ability to calculate exact timing of parts empty based on part consumption, and Smart Loader of the NXTR can supply new parts prior to incident of actual parts out. Thereby, machine stoppages caused by the splicing conditions and part empties can be prevented, and machines work continuously until finishing the production. At the same time, real-time sensing technology contributes to the concept of zero placement defects: Pick-up condition of the part and its upside-down are detected by an intelligent part sensor for every single component. Also, various warpage condition of PCBs is possible to be detected by a laser sensor and the NXTR automatically recognizes the best release point of the components.
