Smart Solution - Solutions for Cost-Effective SMT Production
Press release date: October 30, 2013
Essemtec's central focus at productronica 2013 is directed toward the "SMART Solution". The market pressure of increasingly shorter delivery periods, numerous product changeovers, production peaks as well as ever-tighter margins forces many manufacturers to search for flexible solutions. For that reason, Essemtec provides a fully modular hardware and software concept that enables complete optimization of SMT production.
According to Florian Schildein, Sales & Marketing Manager at Essemtec AG, everyone is talking about lean production. Actually, the explanation of lean production can be shortened to two words "avoid wastage." Wastage may appear in various forms in day-to-day production: overproductions, long idle times and down times, long transportation routes, complicated production steps, inefficient warehouses or by not using machine potential. "But no one wants to pay for these wastages - neither the customer nor the company," Schildein states.
Challenges facing today's manufacturing industry
Nowadays not only the elimination of potential waste is crucial for modern production planning and organizations but also stands in a global context that influences all companies. Customers are confronted with similar challenges: they are faced with global competition that results in reduced delivery times, lower margins, frequent daily layout changes, smaller component sizes and production quantities as well as challenging customer-specific solutions that asks for more flexibility of its production and staff. To manage these tasks, individual solutions are required that are based on the specifics of a particular company, production environment and end product. Essemtec's SMART Solution perfectly meets these requirements.
Holistic concept for SMT production
SMART Solution from Essemtec is a holistic, modular and flexible system of matching and interacting hardware and software tools for SMT production. SMART Solution provides the fundamental functions required for managing flexible production, supporting growth, reducing error rates, protecting existing investments or adapting quickly to changing requirements.
Furthermore, the SMART Solution concept significantly reduces investment cost for SMT production. Customers can adjust their equipment set to match the actual economic situation. Future projects or options may be implemented at a later date. The existing budget can be invested effectively and intelligently. "There is no need for our customer to purchase a package that he only uses for 80% in the end. He will receive a product that 100% meets his requirements," Schildein illustrates the concept of SMART Solution.
