News: Fuji America: Part Placement

Description: Introducing a glue tool to the tool lineup also enables the DynaHead to change to a tool for dispensing glue. This glue tool can be used to provisionally secure key parts and prevent defects that occur during reflow in the form of raised parts without needing glue application independent from the placement machine. This makes it possible to both place parts with a wide range of part sizes and apply glue using the same head, which also means that a single module can become all-in-one glue and placement station.

News: Fuji America: Supply Tray

Description: Up until now Fuji has developed and delivered many different tray part supply units that meet various needs, such as the tray unit-LT, and the stacked tray feeder. However, because electronics have such a short life cycle, the quantity and ratio of parts used changes frequently with changes in the product type. In these situations, we need to respond quickly to new challenges such as the following. When proportionately more reel parts need to be used, and there is not enough space remaining to load a tray unit at a part supply stage. When proportionately more tray parts need to be used, and not all parts can be loaded into the tray unit. When only a few tray parts are used, and it might be better if there was an option that did not require an investment in a large tray unit. In answer to these kinds of issues, Fuji has developed the new "inner tray stage"....

News: Fuji America: Supply Parts

Description: When producing test panels or running production for very small lots, production sometimes uses parts packaged in tape that is cut in a shorter length ("shorter tape") for providing only the necessary amount of parts. This type of tape supply cannot be automated using usual tape feeders designed for mass production, so extra work such as repacking parts is required at the production floor.....

News: Fuji America: Laser Type

Description: Many of our customers are already using 3D coplanarity checks to check for parts with bent leads before they can result in placement defects. However, while the 3D coplanarity check unit is an accurate and versatile tool for detecting potential defects, there are also many who could benefit from the function to check for bent leads but have passed on it when weighing up the merits vs the initial costs of a unit that has a full-range capacity to check for missing or misshapen bumps, as well as missing and warped leads.....

News: Fuji America: SIP and Module Parts

Description: As electronics become smaller with greater functionality and along with demand driving shorter development times, there is an increased demand for package parts such as SiP and module parts. There are many different configurations of package parts that can be found in the market, but the common threads in the manufacturing process of these parts; multi-layering and thinner structures in the Z direction, and higher density in the XY direction, are being used in combination and continue to evolve. For these kinds of cutting-edge processes, Fuji is on hand to talk directly with factories to talk shop and provide an array of solutions....

News: Fuji America: Reliable Process

Description: There are a lot of settings that must be specified to create vision processing data for placement machines, and creating the data for each part to be vision processed takes time and experience. Creating vision processing data becomes especially difficult when there are elements outside the part body such as the bumps and leads on package parts. These programming issues can be remedied using Fuji's Auto Shape Generator and VPDplus.....
