ASM Assembly Systems looks back on a successful Productronica 2015

Dec 01, 2015 | The team of technology leader ASM Assembly Systems can look back on an extraordinarily successful Productronica 2015. In the impressive booth, which was largest yet covering 650 square meters, visitors had to fight for space to view “live” the progress the company has made on the path to the Smart #1 SMT Factory. Equally popular were the workshops and product presentations ASM Assembly System’s offered during the technology inhouse show at its Munich headquarters. Highlights at both locations included the SIPLACE BulkFeeder for tape-free component feeding, the new DEK NeoHorizon printers in interaction with the ASM ProcessExpert as the first self-learning inline expert system for SMT production, and integrated SIPLACE solutions for material logistics. The new ultra-compact SIPLACE TX high-volume placement modules received Global SMT & Packaging’s innovation award in the “High-Volume Placement” category. Also popular was a study which ASM developers presented in cooperation with robotics manufacturer KUKA. It demonstrated how intelligent, self-propelled robots can help line operators refill components or pick up component reels from the automatic SIPLACE Material Tower storage system.
