Yamaha SMT presents the latest enhancements to their 3D AOI systems 

Yamaha Robotics SMT Section has unveiled significant upgrades for the YRi-V 3D AOI system, featuring faster board handling, multi-component alignment checking, and improved LED coplanarity measurement

New innovations

Yamaha's advanced 3D AOI enhancements redefine performance 
with speed, accuracy, and user-friendliness

The new stopperless transfer system brakes and stabilizes each board electronically after entering the machine, cutting the time to position the assembly ready for inspection. The cumulative time saving accelerates the completion of every batch and significantly increases overall productivity. 

The multi-component checking feature helps setup the YRi-V to measure alignment and spacing, for applying corrections or recording positions.

The new multi-component alignment check simplifies programming the YRi-V to measure the distances between arrayed parts such as LED emitters in automotive or general lighting. When building automotive headlamps, users can leverage the captured AOI data to individually optimise the placement of beam-focusing lenses for maximum lighting performance. The alignment check can be used to verify the spacings between many other types of components, such as Hall sensors for precision motion control.

The upgraded height measurement system, using a blue laser, ensures accurate and repeatable height assessment for components that are difficult to capture with standard equipment, such as transparent LED packages. 
Now offering superior capabilities, the YRi-V helps lighting manufacturers ensure greater product reliability with superior optical performance and visual appearance. In addition, now the YRi-V can be equipped with a 25-megapixel top-camera system, which significantly expands the inspection area that can be imaged at one time.

Our latest upgrades further extend the YRi-V’s ability to maximise quality assurance, addressing cutting-edge automotive, industrial, and consumer applications.

Our customers benefit from ongoing enhancements to their 3D AOI systems as we continue to make new features available enabled by advancements such as new machine-vision technologies, motion control, and AI.

Yamaha’s YRi-V 3D AOI systems is built on a high-rigidity frame, shared with the advanced YRM high-speed mounters, as the foundation for super-sharp image capture operating at the maximum line rate. 

With multiple camera-resolution options, an 8-direction 3D projector, and state-of-the-art image-processing engine, the system achieves extremely high throughput and detects elusive defects such as chips and cracks in wafer-level packages. 

Offline editing tools and AI-assisted auto library matching accelerate inspection program generation to help minimize new-product introduction time. 

There are also tools to facilitate data creation, conversion, and tuning. When operating, M2M communication with other equipment in the line instantaneously shares defect information to aid analysis and troubleshooting.

As a part of the 1 STOP SMART SOLUTION concept, the YRi-V connects with Yamaha’s full line-up of SMT equipment that includes solder paste printing and inspection, component mounting, and smart-factory software to ensure a high level of integration and coordination. 

The latest stopperless transfer, alignment checking, and advanced laser height checking features are available now with all new machines and to upgrade existing systems in the field.
