Rolling Meadows, IL / Florham Park, NJ (November 12, 2014) – Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America announced today the inclusion of Heller Industries’ solutions and equipment in the PanaCIM Certified Technology Program.
For over 30 years Heller has offered innovative solutions to electronics manufacturers and assemblers around the world as a leader in Reflow Oven Technology. The PanaCIM Enterprise Edition MES (manufacturing execution system) software allows Heller and Panasonic to offer a more meaningful, data-rich integration of hardware for electronics manufacturers globally.
“Certification in this program means Heller Industries equipment will communicate with Panasonic machines though a standardized and centralized enterprise software solution – PanaCIM,” said Faisal Pandit, President of Panasonic Factory Solutions Company of America. He added, “In too many cases electronics manufacturers are disregarding integration of their reflow oven equipment into their manufacturing execution system. With this cooperation, Heller and Panasonic offer customers a standard solution to further improve their process repeatability and stability.”
“Setting up the feedback loop from our equipment to global MES solutions such as PanaCIM will allow our customers to reduce scrap and rework ratios by interlocking the reflow soldering process and setup as they already do for SMT equipment. The data consolidated from Heller Industries machines will also extend traceability capability to provide useful information to continuous improvement and quality management teams,“ said David Heller, CEO of Heller Industries.
