NPM-W2 Versatile Platform
The new NPM-W2 amplifies the original NPM-W capabilities with a 10% throughput boost and 25% more accuracy. It also integrates new innovations like our incomparable Multi Recognition Camera. Combined, these features extend the component range down to the 03015mm microchip, yet preserve capability up to 120x90mm components up to 40mm tall and nearly 6” long (150mm) connectors.
Board handling has also been improved. Available in either single lane or dual lane, the machine provides the ability to handle PCBs up to 1,490 x 550mm (58.7 x 21.6”)—ideal for long LED panels or large industrial boards. Quick-change feeder carts, auto board support setup, and expanded nozzle capacity, along with 120 feeder inputs and our Intelligent Feeder Anywhere position the NPM-W2 as an ideal solution for “Any Mix Any Volume”. Additionally, numerous placement and process head options, plus multiple component supply methods make the NPMP-W2 a versatile addition to any SMT manufacturing line.
The new, revolutionary Multi Recognition Camera uniquely combines three separate imaging capabilities into a single system: 2D alignment, component thickness inspection, and 3D coplanarity measurement. The field upgradeable system eliminates any configuration challenges historically associated with competitive vision systems, which often resulted in excessive investments, improper configurations, inadequate capabilities, and even reduced quality. Versatile for today’s technology, and powerful for future inspection challenges, the Multi Recognition Camera helps manufacturers build higher quality products.
As always, manufacturers can scale NPM production lines to meet production needs while conserving investments until production or technology requirements mandate. OEMs and EMS providers can reconfigure the machine heads in approximately 15 minutes—maximizing flexibility, minimizing ROI, and protecting assets. The NPM-W2 also incorporates existing feeders, carts, and nozzles to minimize investment and inventory expenses.
Other members of the NPM line include the NPM-D3 process solution and the twin tray NPM-TT2.
