Panasonic Factory Solutions Co., Ltd., a business unit of Panasonic Corporation, introduced a new modular placement machine, the AM100 (Model No.:NM-EJM4D) in May, 2013, for use in the SMT process of mounting components on PCBs.
The AM100 was designed to evolve with fluctuating market needs while remaining a cost-effective solution to produce the necessary products with the necessary quality and within the necessary timing. In order to respond to these market needs, the AM100 can place from 0402 micro chips to large components such as long connectors with the newly-developed super multi-14-nozzle head on a single machine with high productivity of 35,800cph. In addition, numerous line configurations and supply variations can be combined to process an array of EMS production needs from mobile phones to industrial equipment, and more.
Panasonic will continue to provide customers with solutions such as the AM100 for the SMT process and contribute to reduce TCO*2.
- Area of occupation reduced through compact component supply unit. (AV132 80-type is 92% vs AV131 120-type and AV132 40-type is 90% vs AV131 60-type)
- Floor space saved and line of traffic minimized to achieve highly efficient production.
