FUJI pick and place machine, PANASONIC chip mounter, SIPLACE SMT mounter, YAMAHA surface mounter, SAMSUNG pick and place machine, JUKI mounter, Assembleon pick and place machine, Hitachi pick and place machine, and other well-known brands of SMT placement machines and SMT parts have always been expensive. The Chinese are pragmatists. Since your price is high, we can’t afford it, then We do what we can afford. In this way, the China-made SMT parts come into being. Such as SMT nozzles, SMT feeders, SMT spare parts and SMT feeder parts.
In the more than ten years that we have been dealing with used SMT machines and SMT parts, we often encounter customers who are worried: I want to buy the original new SMT nozzles, SMT feeders, will you sell copy one to me?
So I wrote the below 4 steps to teach you to distinguish the original FUJI nozzle vs the copy FUJI nozzle.
Please note all of the below pictures, the left 2pcs nozzles are copy one made in China. The right 2pcs nozzles which I marked out with a red line are the original new ones.
1. You can see from the below picture, the bar code, the FUJI logo and the nozzle model designation of the copy new one are yellower in color than the FUJI original one.
2. Please note the below pictures, can you find out the difference between the copy nozzles and original nozzles?
You can see from the below picture, the part I marked out with a yellow circle on the left two copy nozzles. It is not smooth here.
3. From the below picture, you can see the original new one looks fuller and smooth. And the copy one looks frosted.
4. From the below picture, you can see the color of the silver part of the original nozzles is brighter than the copy nozzles.
