I'm considering Mirtec or Koh Young, but I have heard some issues with them. I was in SMT Hybrid Packaging in Germany and Parmi's AOI looked impressive. Does anyone know Parmi? or would you recommend any system?

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 07:17:25 GMT SMT control management software http://www.smtnet.com/Forums/index.cfm?fuseaction=view_thread&CFApp=1&Thread_ID=18155 In our production facility, we currently have 3 different makes of SMD machines. I am wanting to look at solutions that would allow us to control kitting, traceability, etc globally across all the machines. This would need to be a standalone system that could possibly even look at scheduling builds intelligently. I have seen MyData APM suite which seems like it does all this. Am I correct in that it can be used independent of hardware? Are there any other off the shelf solutions or would we need to develop a custom piece of software?

Machine keeps stopping and comes up with error message - failed to locate hydra tool reference marks & Error mounting component .... from feeder ..... with nozzle .... I have checked my camera for any components that may have fallen in it and also checked the reference plate and gave it a clean. There appears to be no damage to the plate and the reference marks seem clear and defined to me even under a microscope. Mydata/Mycronic were saying I may need a new hydra ref plate, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it. Has anyone else had this problem and any solution? Thanks.

It has components that are very esily damaged by contact. I'm stuck with wash. I know, I know, but no-clean isn't an option. We put the board in s compartmentalized wash basked but it still gets thrown around a bit. Any off-the-shelf options out there for securing a small board in wash?

I'm trying to put together a plan for testing this machine prior to deciding whether or not it's going to be usable for us. Does anyone have a manual? It was manufactured in 2003, if that helps.

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 08:28:23 GMT GSM PTF Off Center Pick http://www.smtnet.com/Forums/index.cfm?fuseaction=view_thread&CFApp=1&Thread_ID=18150 Having some issues with our GSM picking parts that are delivered by the PTF off center; and wondering if there's a relatively painless way to calibrate where the head goes to pick the part on the belt. Near as I can see, the PTF is picking the parts fine, and placing them on the belt...that's where things get strange. I can see that the part is not being picked in the center (or anywhere near the center). Any help is appreciated. Thanks, ..rob Wed, 17 Jun 2015 17:06:29 GMT
