Pin Through Hole: RL132

RL132 Panasonic Pin Through Hole

RL132 Radial Through-Hole Inserter

Panasonic's RL132 high-speed radial lead component insertion machine offers generation-ahead technology in a spatially-efficient footprint.

The RL132's combination of 25,700cph (.14s/component) insertion rates, board processing sizes up to 650 x 381mm, a 33% reduction in PCB transfer time, up to 18% reduction in electrical and air consumption per insertion and an improved perishable parts lifespan results in a very low cost of ownership.

This through-hole machine features a 4 pitch span and is configurable with 40 or 80 components inputs. Meanwhile, its dual split carriage enables machine function at exchange mode and parts replenishment during production. Plus exhaust detection and full auto-recovery allow for non-stop productivity.

Component verification and part binning capabilities assist in LED applications. The RL132 is also ideal for applications including flat-panel TVs, power supplies, audiovisual products, lighting, and home appliances-offering reliable placement through its lead v-cut method.

As Panasonic continues to develop its through-hole technology, the RL132 has retained compatibility with previous generation through-hole machines, allowing the use of consumable parts and NC programs.

Features & Benefits

High-speed insertion at 0.14 s/component
Lead V cut method enables the machine to insert radial lead components at a speed of 0.14 s/component. Either one of 2-pitch (2.5mm/5.0mm), 3-pitch (2.5mm/5.0mm/7.5mm) or 4-pitch (2.5mm/5.0mm/7.5mm/10.0mm) spec. can be selected for insertion pitch.

Highly efficient production
The fixed component feeder unit method and an out-of-component detection function allow component replenishment beforehand and long-term non-stop operation. Employing the dual- partitioned component supply method enables to select among from a connection mode, a preparation mode and an exchange mode. (80-type component specification only) A full-auto recovery function which automatically corrects insertion errors is provided so as to allow long-term non-stop operation.

Highly efficient use of area
Compact component supply method enables a reduction of area of occupation. (40-type component specification only, Reduction of about 35% for an original RL131 machine) Space saving installation and reduction of flow line allows high efficient production.

Hole position offset method ensures high reliability
Recognizing the positions of all the holes (two or three) in the insertion area, the machine corrects the component position based on the optimum insertion position calculated, ensuring reliable insertion.

Reduction of running cost
Expandable parts of the RL132 such as the Anvil blade, pusher rubber are compatible with those of the RHS2B and RL131. Operability, the data configuration and the XY table can be shared in any one of the Insertion machine series. The setup and maintenance operations are standardized.

Operability enhancement
Identical control panels are setup at the front side of the RL132 so that operability can be significantly improved. (Standard specification) Up to 200 types of programs can be stored. Data can be input to and output from high-capacity SD memory cards. NC data of our conventional equipment (RH series) can be used by the RL132. Setup support functions that display the component layout of the component supply unit on the screen are provided. Maintenance support functions that display information of regular maintenance time and operation content are provided.

Global transformer incorporated
Global transformer compatible with 220, 380, 400, 420, and 480 Voltages. No external transformer necessary.

Enlargement function option
Large-size PCB support option allows hole recognition and insertion up to PCB size of Max. 650 mm x 381 mm. 2 PCB transfer option can decrease PCB loading time by half and increase productivity. This is effective especially when insertion components are few.
