Analysis of SMT Placement Machine Technology and Overview of Brands: European, American, and Japanese Brands Dominate the Market


Latest company news about Analysis of SMT Placement Machine Technology and Overview of Brands: European, American, and Japanese Brands Dominate the Market

The SMT pick and place machine is one of the most important equipment in the SMT industry, with the highest technical content. Most of the brands come from Europe, the United States, and Japan, with high market share including Siemens, Panasonic, and Fuji. There are various types of placement machines, and Hunan Charmhigh Electromechanical will elaborate on them below.

I. Classification by Speed

Placement machines can be classified into ultra-high-speed machines, high-speed machines, and medium-to-low-speed machines based on their speed. Generally, the classification is determined by the placement speed. Ultra-high-speed placement machines can place over 60,000 components per hour, high-speed placement machines range from 30,000 to 60,000, and medium-to-low-speed placement machines, also known as multi-functional placement machines. With the development of technology, placement machines are evolving to meet customer needs, focusing on high speed, high precision, high stability, multi-functionality, ease of operation and maintenance, and rapid product changeover capabilities.

II. Classification by Structure

Placement machines can also be classified based on their structural functions into gantry-type, hybrid, rotary, and modular types. Gantry-type placement machines offer excellent flexibility and placement accuracy. They can be divided into single-arm and multi-arm configurations, with each arm capable of installing multiple placement heads. Each placement head can have multiple suction nozzles, resulting in extremely fast placement speeds. Hybrid placement machines combine the characteristics of rotary and gantry-type machines, allowing for increased arm numbers and improved placement speed, providing greater flexibility and adaptability. Rotary placement machines perform component pick-up and placement simultaneously, but due to structural limitations, their placement speed has a limit and is relatively low. Therefore, they have been gradually replaced by gantry-type and hybrid placement machines and are rarely available in the market. Modular placement machines consist of multiple small, independent placement machines combined together. Each placement head independently picks up components to simultaneously place them on the same or multiple circuit boards, making them particularly suitable for small PCB boards.

III. Classification by Country of Origin

Placement machines are high-tech, high-precision electronic production equipment. Currently, the mainstream market share brands are primarily from Europe, the United States, and Japan, with fewer domestic brands holding a lower market share. Generally, domestic placement machines are used for large-spacing LED applications, while imported equipment is commonly used in most medical, aviation, automotive, and high-precision consumer electronics applications. The leading first-tier brands include Siemens (German, acquired by ASM Group), Fuji (Japanese), and Panasonic (Japanese). The second-tier brands include Samsung (Korean), Juki (Japanese), Yamaha (Japanese), and Universal Instruments (American). Although domestic placement machines still have room for improvement in technology, some domestic brands like Changheng Electromechanical are making efforts to enhance product performance and quality, gradually gaining a certain market share and recognition.
