Surface Mount Technology (SMT)

The SMT Section delivers advanced solutions for electronic manufacturing businesses, based on state-of-the-art inline automation. The product portfolio addresses all aspects of populating printed circuit boards, from stencil printing and dispensing electronic materials such as solder paste and adhesives, through 3D solder paste inspection (SPI), high-speed component placement, and 3D automatic optical inspection (AOI), as well as intelligent, connected component storage. There are also high-accuracy hybrid bare-die/SMD-chip placement platforms, perfect for assembling electronic modules including MEMS sensors and power controllers as well as semiconductor back-end processes such as flip-chip packaging.

Drawing on hardware and software intellectual property built up over many product generations, and the expertise of its engineering staff to deliver creative solutions, these platforms handle the complexity of today’s electronic assembly challenges and ensure outstanding repeatability and end-of-line yield; ultimately ensuring commercial success for manufacturers by delivering total satisfaction for their customers. With a flexible range of product choices, the SMT Section offers a 1 Stop Smart Solution for data-driven manufacturing, that gives customers the flexibility to optimise and scale their production capacity and capabilities.

Factory Automation (FA)

The FA Section has evolved from a group formed within Yamaha to automate aspects of motorcycle manufacturing using flexible, precision robots. Today, FA Section offers SCARA and cartesian robots, linear transfer modules, and vision systems that are used in industries from microelectronics to consumer products, food production, aerospace, automotive, and more, and trusted by customers ranging from small enterprises to blue-chip corporations. Configured for standalone use, or connected in infinitely flexible ways to perform almost any sequence of processes, they can address a wide variety of parts-handling and light mechanical assembly tasks involving payloads up to about 50kg.

To efficiently move workpieces between robots working together, the LCMR200 linear conveyor module is unique to Yamaha and provides bidirectional transport with programmable speed and start/stop positions. It can also provide flexible transport between workstations of a conventional production line.

An extensive selection of controllers is available that allow interacting with their robots using popular industrial Ethernet and fieldbus protocols, including PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, PROFIBUS, CC-Link, DeviceNet, and EtherNet/IP. There are also accessories and options to maximise performance, including the RCXiVY2+ vision system with optional high-speed tracking and new blob detection for handling irregular-shaped objects, a selection of electric grippers, and the RCX Studio GUI with its new 3D simulator for rapid setup and programming.
