ASM Assembly Systems at the Productronica 2015 An unrivaled showcase of innovations

Oct 11, 2015 | New placement modules, tapeless feeders, new screen printers and the first expert system that optimizes SMT processes automatically. At Productronica 2015 (November 10-13, Munich Trade Fair Center), technology leader ASM Assembly Systems will present a show unlike any other under the motto “On the move to the Smart #1 SMT Factory”. On 650 square meters at booth A3.377, the SMT experts will lay out their roadmap to the Smart Factory with a “Speed Quality” line and a “Flexible Quality” line featuring totally innovative technologies. The focus will be best-in-class equipment, automation tools, production process networking and integration, and transparent material logistics. At the “Speed Quality” line, new SIPLACE TX placement modules will ring in the mass placement of super-small 0201 (metric) components. A single SIPLACE TX module alone can place up to 78,000 of these per hour at full speed at smallest footprint. With its compact design, it also sets new records in speed, floorspace performance and placement accuracy. Components in sizes from 0402 through 01005 will be supplied loosely and without tapes thanks to the new SIPLACE BulkFeeder. This ASM innovation finally bans reels and splicing from the SMT production floor. With the DEK NeoHorizon and DEK NeoHorizon Back-to-Back, the ASM team will also unveil new, powerful screen printers. Most of the visitors’ attention, however, will be focused on the ASM ProcessExpert. This first inline expert system in the industry establishes a new product category in electronics manufacturing. By running virtual prints based on Gerber data, the ASM ProcessExpert subjects the stencil to a DFM (design for manufacturability) health check. By stabilizing and optimizing the printing process automatically, this highly innovative system represents a milestone on the path to self-optimizing SMT lines. Each of these innovations constitutes a building block for the Smart Factory.
