Hitachi Sigma Offers Lower Price Tag
G5JS permits gradual upgrading as the need arises.
Dallas, TX — Electronics manufacturers and PCB assemblers who want the precision and accuracy of Hitachi's SIGMA Series Modular Mounters, but don't need all that capacity just yet, can get started with the new SIGMA G5JS, a single-beam version of the recently introduced SIGMA G5S.

The SIGMA G5JS implements the company's "Overdrive technology" for full utilization of both front and rear resources using a single placement head. The head can be either high-speed (up to 44mm square single shot recognition) or the multifunction head, which is capable of handling a variety of both SMT and through-hole components. The customer can use this basically as an SMT platform, including three different tray feeders to choose from; or it can be configured as a work cell using the multifunction head, stack stick feeders, or radial and axial lead feeders.

According to the company, the new SIGMA G5JS provides the option of getting into Hitachi technology at a reduced price, while at the same time being compatible in terms of feeders, nozzles, feeder carts, programing, and just about everything else, with the company's high-speed. Starting out with the G5JS, users can seamlessly scale up their production by integrating the high speed equipment into their production line. The high-speed head is rated at 37,500 CPH and the multi-function head 7,000 to 9,000 CPH for chip components, excluding PCB transition time of approximately 2 seconds.
