Panasonic NPM-WX / NPM-WXS
The NPM-WX represents the next generation of Panasonic’s mounting production concept “Smart manufacturing”. The platform represents higher line throughput and improved quality at lower cost thanks to integrated automated systems. APC system and automatic recovery are integrated to provide autonomous line control. The incorporated floor-management system and remote-operation option improve utilisation combined with lower labour costs. Feeder set-up and component supply navigation systems are available, helping to reduce the work variations.
The NPM-WX can handle a wide variety of components, from 0402 chip components up to large components with a max. size of 150x25x40 mm. Parts can be supplied from tape, stick or tray-feeder . Feeder-cart flexibility can be provided by selecting the existing 30-input feeder cart or inserting two 17-input feeder carts. 4 different types of placement heads are available. Max. placement speed is 86,000 cph with a placement accuracy of +/-25 μm. Thanks to NPM-WX’s integrated systems, component diversity and available options, it represents the perfect solution for automated SMT production for all kinds of product.
The machine is fully compatible with other NPM-systems and can therefore also be fully integrated into existing production lines. Connection and control via Panasonics iLNB is ensured to provide full control of production and required management data.
