Juki Automation Systems Announces Growth in Mexico

Juki is pleased to announce that it has seen tremendous growth in Mexico since Rene López joined the company in 2015.

Mexico continues to lead electronic manufacturing growth in Latin America and is well-positioned globally as an exporter and assembler of electronics.

“Rene has been instrumental in spearheading the project management and growth in Mexico, specifically with Juki’s JM20, a multi-task platform used for odd-form insertion and/or SMT and our Intelligent Storage Management (ISM) solutions,” commented Bill Astle, President & CEO, JAS, Inc. “We are honored to have him, and super confident that our customers are in good hands with Rene leading the way on these innovative, yet relatively complicated products.”

LopezLópez has been in the electronics industry for more than ten years and joined Juki after six years with Sanmina. He is a perfect fit for Juki, as during his tenure at Sanmina he was involved with the introduction of Juki’s GKG Screen Printer and KE-3010 Pick-and-Place system. In his experience as an equipment engineer, he has developed diagnostic and troubleshooting skills for electrical and mechanical SMT processes as well as human resource management to monitor the personnel responsible for the SMT lines.

Now a project manager, López previously worked for two years as a field service engineer at Juki Mexico, participating in the support of evaluations of projects in important companies in Mexico with JM machines and the Storage Solutions Tower. Lopez works hand-in-hand with the largest electronic manufacturing companies in Guadalajara and the rest of Mexico (Flex, Sanmina, Jabil, Foxconn) on the implementation of new technologies and automation solutions with the JM (ODD Form Machine) and ISM (intelligent storage management) machines.

New Juki Printer Recognized with NPI Award during APEX

Juki Automation Systems announces that it has been awarded a 2018 NPI Award in the category of Screen / Stencil Printing for its new G-Titan Screen Printer.

The award was presented to the company during a Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2018 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

g-titan

The new G-Titan Screen Printer is equipped for I4.0, lights-out manufacturing and quality print control. The printer features a new interface with a modern look and many standard features, including: touchscreen LCD, stencil inspection, solder paste rolling measurement, stencil flattener, support block crash prevention, and automatic solder paste dispense (500g jar).

The G-Titan features SPI closed-loop communication. The smart SPI closed-loop function provides SPI detection information to the printer to auto adjust and offset printing conditions. This is currently compatible with major SPI manufacturers.

The automated solder paste dispensing reduces production costs by reducing production personnel, dispensing the paste directly from the jar, It extends the solder paste viscosity and maximizes the solder paste lifespan. Additionally, exposure to air is reduced, minimizing issues from improper storage. This also reduces human errors and the chance of mixing old and new solder pastes together.

Bill Astle, JAS Inc. President explained; “Both Juki and GKG are ecstatic and honored to receive the NPI Award. The G-Titan is our latest generation SMT Stencil Printer and introduces a new concept in Optimum Paste Control (OPC) using advanced built in features such as automatic paste replenishment, which eliminates insufficient and/or excessive paste on the stencil. This feature also reduces labor and human intervention, keeping the solder paste roll within the optimum range automatically.”

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
