Alexander Hagenfeldt

Your "Open Automation" expert

A sensible and targeted automation requires an overall view across the entire line. ASMPT Open Automation therefore examines every single step of production: the manual effort required for a process, error susceptibility and frequency, extent of consequences and, above all, whether automation makes economic sense at the point under consideration. Thus, automation does not become an end in itself but a business decision with a clearly measurable return of investment.
Rob Raine

Your "Open Automation" expert

Automation and process optimization require the integration of all involved systems and machines. To accomplish this, all parties must be able to communicate with each other seamlessly – both horizontally and vertically. That’s why ASMPT equipment features powerful open interfaces such as IPC Hermes 9852 and IPC-CFX that make it possible to fully integrate ASM and third-party solutions.
