A faster XY robot and faster tape feeders, as well as a newly developed "flying vision" parts camera, mean increased placing ability for all part sizes and types. The new H24 high-speed head achieves 35,000 cph (chips per hour) per module, a 30% improvement from the fastest speed of the NXT II.
03015 mm Part Support, +/- 0.025 mm Placing Accuracy
As well as supporting the smallest parts currently being used in mass production (0402 mm, 01005"), the NXT III can also handle the next generation of components heading for the market - 03015 mm parts. By improving machine rigidity and further refining its independent servo control and vision recognition technology, Fuji has achieved a placing accuracy for small chip parts of +/- 0.025 mm* (3 sigma, Cpk≥1.00).
The GUI of the original NXT smt pick and place machine was widely praised for making use of intuitive and easy-to-understand pictograms instead of relying on language-based instructions. This interface is now combined with a touchscreen panel to make operation even easier. This reduces the number of button pushes required and makes selecting commands easier, as well as improving quality by reducing the chance of performing the wrong command.
Many of the main units from the NXT II such as placing heads, nozzle stations, feeders, tray units, and feeder pallet exchange units can be used on the NXT III pick and place machine without any modifications.
