SIPLACE Feeder Care: Professional support for in-house maintenance

May 06, 2009

To maximize their placement quality and speed, electronics manufacturers must keep their feeders in top condition. With the SIPLACE Feeder Care Solutions 2009, a newly developed maintenance concept, technology leader Siemens Electronics Assembly Systems now offers electronics producers the facility to significantly reduce their feeder maintenance costs.

The core of the innovative Feeder Care Solutions 2009 is the recently introduced SIPLACE Feeder Manager software, which advises users not only of the condition of their feeders, but also locates them in the factory and gives them control of the entire on-site feeder inventory. The data supplied from the SIPLACE Feeder Manager is then used by the SIPLACE Feeder Care Packages for X-feeders and S-feeders. These packages contain test stations for functional tests and error analysis, as well as special tooling. Easy and clear instructions enable users to perform their own maintenance and repairs in-house reliably and in accordance with the highest quality standards.

The precision and performance of the feeder modules are critical for the efficiency and productivity of modern placement machines.. The experts at Siemens Electronics Assembly Systems decided to embark in a new direction: The SIPLACE Feeder Care Solutions 2009 is a highly innovative, all encompassing process which takes into account the feeders, as well as the users.

The network-capable SIPLACE Feeder Manager software is the core of the SIPLACE Feeder Care Solutions and the basis for a modern feeder maintenance concept. The software shows where each feeder is located and the condition of each feeder. In addition, the software also supports the entire feeder inventory throughout the factory. The software displays maintenance intervals, test and repair instructions as well as each feeder's history on a user-friendly and easy-to-administer interface, while the SIPLACE Test Stations include all the hardware the user needs to check and troubleshoot his feeders.

With the SIPLACE Feeder Care Packages, electronic manufacturers receive all the necessary test stations, tooling and simple instructions to carry out reliable feeder maintenance and repairs to the highest quality standards.

SIPLACE Feeder Care Packages and Test Stations are available for the proven S-feeders and completely new, also for the latest machine generations' X-feeders. Setting up their own professional feeder maintenance in-house, in accordance with the supplier's quality standards, delivers significant cost benefits to manufacturers: since the feeder availability increases and less replacement feeders have to be purchased. Thus, existing feeders are more utilized which in turn reduces the Cost-of-Ownership considerably. In addition to the already identified cost reduction benefit when using in-house maintenance facilities, shipment and repair times are kept at a minimum.
