With our solutions for efficient troubleshooting as well as the central administration and maintenance of all manufacturing assets, you provide your technical and maintenance teams with powerful applications that allow them to execute their duties more effectively and with less stress – all while significantly reducing the downtime of your systems and production lines.
Secure a technological edge through the use of modern software that is custom-tailored for the needs of future-proof electronics manufacturing
Optimize the use of human resources with utmost efficiency. Assign your employees tasks that are in line with their qualifications while giving them direct access to the information they need on their desktop or mobile device so that they can do their work as effectively as possible.
Does your production suffer from machine downtime caused by missing components, unnecessary material travel, manual reordering, or buffer capacities on the line that take up space? Our material flow optimization software puts an end to all this. Its intelligent solutions ensure that materials are available where they are needed in the right quantity and at the right time.
With its modular, flexible and manufacturer-independent Open Automation concept, ASMPT enables you not only to automate based on your needs, but to integrate third-party equipment based on the global standard for industrial communication: IPC-2591 CFX.
ASMPT’s software solutions incorporate comprehensive process expertise from the global technology and market leader in SMT manufacturing. In combination with SPI and AOI systems, our expert software ensures autonomous process optimization along the entire SMT line regardless of the equipment manufacturer and relieves process engineers from the burden of quality control activities.
With analytical software for optimizing the SMT process on the basis of empirical data, you can get the most out of your ASMPT equipment. Based on expert know-how, problematic aspects that lead to efficiency and performance shortfalls are systematically identified and localized. Our innovative software helps employees to identify the causes of problems, highlights potential losses, and points out potential improvements.
VEGA plays in the Champions League of automation
An integrated material management solution based on WORKS enables highly efficient setup processes and intelligent user guidance at VEGA Grieshaber in Schiltach, Germany.
Finishing touch for Aros
By implementing software applications from the WORKS Smart Shop Floor Management Suite, Aros electronics in Sweden has made significant improvements in its material management and setup preparation areas.
Perfect support for the material logistics manager at Velankani
Indian company Velankani Electronics, which manufacturers set-top boxes and smart meters in three shifts with state-of-the-art machinery and a high degree of automation does a lot more than simply manage its inventories.
Factory Equipment Center provides the ideal automated maintenance schedule management solution for our SIPLACE X feeders. The system automatically detects and inventories the feeders. With the included instructions, tedious searching is eliminated and preparation time for inspections and repairs is minimized. This is how we ensure consistent repair and inspection. With Factory Equipment Center, we have been able to reduce the failure rate of our SIPLACE X feeders by 50%, resulting in higher productivity of our SMT line.
Open interfaces and transparency are crucial prerequisites for successful automation in electronics manufacturing, as VEGA Grieshaber proved in an impressive manner when they automated their material flow with the help of ASMPT’s Smart Shopfloor Management Suite WORKS. The results speak for themselves: significant space and time savings of 30 percent when moving materials to and from storage, as well as an acceleration of setup process speeds by 50 percent.
Most electronics factories operate under critical time and quality pressure. Even the smallest disturbances in the setup process can severely affect their overall efficiency. Aros electronics, a Swedish manufacturer of specialized electronic solutions for motor and drive technology in the industrial and automotive fields, counteracts this with solutions from ASMPT.
At Aros, lot sizes of 1 to 200 units are common, which is why speedy and correct setup changeovers are critically important.The entire preparation process is now paperless, and employees get their instructions via monitors and LEDs on the feeders. The result: significantly fewer error sources, easier setups, and minimized material-related line stops. Overall, Aros has improved its material flows by 60 percent and optimized the speed and reliability of its setup changeovers significantly with WORKS. The company was also able to improve the material travel distances and the transaction volume in its storage system by a lot.
The central components of its materials management are the integrated workflows of the smart shop floor management suite WORKS, supported by the automatic Material Tower storage system for line-adjacent material supplies, software solutions for setup verification, and line monitors for operator guidance. With WORKS, all logistics processes can be controlled and automated based on the workflows planning, logistics, preparation, and integration.
As a result, Velankani was able to increase its output by 70 percent while reducing its line staff from 5 to 3 people. The company also saw significant reductions in faulty setups and material-related line stops. Its material management is now transparent and paperless, and the Material Tower is fully integrated for automated material dispensing. All material flows were significantly improved, and the material travel distances greatly shortened. See for yourself what the smart shop floor management suite WORKS can do for your manufacturing workflows.
Only by combining the know-how and innovative power of SMT process experts and application development specialists can outstanding software solutions be created. For this reason, ASMPT enters into strategic technology partnerships with carefully selected software development companies. This synergy enables the development of practical, high-quality and state-of-the-art applications that increase the efficiency and performance of your entire SMT production.
