Achievement of max. speed 0.12s/component* in the industry
Contribution to Productivity Improvement and Cost Reduction
*As of July 31,2013. For axial component insertion machine. Our investigation.
Panasonic Factory Solutions Co., Ltd. introduces the latest axial component insertion machine, the AV132 from July, 2013.
Pin through hole technology remains necessary to insert components such as diodes and resistors in printed circuit boards (PCBs) for home appliances (white goods), audiovisual (AV) products, lighting, and power supply units. Moreover, there are needs to replace older, existing machinery, conserve energy in factories, reduce material cost of components and PCBs, and automate manual insertion due to increased labor cost and difficulty of procuring workers. Thus the demand for the automatic component insertion machine remains vital.
In order to meet these demands, Panasonic enhanced the capabilities of the current AV131 machine, with increased speed, higher performance and superior reliability - to provide customers with highly reliable and productive solutions for the insertion process that contribute to reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).
This new product is produced by Panasonic Factory Solutions Asia Pacific, which is one of our consolidated group companies and located in Singapore.
- Large-size PCB support allows hole recognition and insertion up to 650mm x 381mm (max) PCB size.
- 2 PCB transfer can decrease PCB loading time by 50%; thereby increasing productivity. This is effective especially when insertion components are few.
