Juki Awarded for New JM-50 High Quality Insertion System

Juki Automation Systems (JAS), Inc., a world-leading provider of automated assembly products and systems and subsidiary of Juki Corporation, is pleased to announce that it received a 2021 Mexico Technology Award in the category of Component Placement – Multifunction for its new JM-50. The award was announced during a ceremony that took place Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021 during SMTA International in Minneapolis, MN.

The new JM-50 utilizes Juki’s advanced TAKUMI placement head. This head automatically adjusts its height to provide the optimal speed and component handling at the same time. It can pick with up to four nozzles at the same time.

The JM-50 is supported by Juki’s JaNets line control software, along with all other current pick-and-place models. This makes it easy to program the entire line from one software package.

Laser and vision inspection allows the JM-50 to inspect the leads and the body of a component and a lead correction unit straightens and corrects bent leads. Multiple nozzle types are available, including vacuum, axial, gripper and mini chuck, and the system can handle radial, axial, stick, bowl, tray and SMT tape feeders. Additionally, the new MVF feeder enables the JM-50 to handle bulk components in a smaller, cheaper, and more flexible way than typical bulk feeding systems.

The Mexico Technology Awards acknowledge the latest innovations available in Mexico produced by OEM manufacturing equipment and materials suppliers during the last 12 months. For more information, visit www.mexicoems.com/mta-awards.
