Seica unveils the very latest and best in its world-class range of flying probe test and assembly solutions
Focus on automation - In the innovative world of electronics it is no longer possible to just have an innovative product. The product must come at the right price and the right quality - which means that not just the product, but the manufacturing itself needs to be innovative and remain cost effective without compromising quality levels. The key to cost efficiency is the creation of a process that is fast, flexible and repeatable.
Therefore it is no surprise that many companies have invested heavily in automating their manufacturing processes, selecting the right equipment able to produce an output of repeatable quality and allowing maximum flexibility to accommodate the high product mix and rapid changeovers which have become the norm in today's competitive market.
Seica Inc., a leading electronics test solution OEM, will showcase new products within its VIVA Integrated Platform(TM) in order to meet the challenges of today's focus on automation. These include the Aerial M4 system, Seica's newest flying probe tester for loaded boards and the Firefly, a laser selective soldering system. Seica's products meet the GEM (Generic Model for Communication and Control of Manufacturing Equipment) Standard. In addition, the mechanical interface on the Firefly adheres to the SMEMA (Surface Mount Equipment Manufacturer's Association) Standard.
The latest addition to Seica's growing portfolio, the Firefly, concentrates all the power and control of laser technology into the automated selective soldering process. Based on Seica's VIP(TM) architecture, Firefly simplifies the generation, verification and operation of any soldering program, while its flexibility and performance can be further optimized through additional software tools. Thermal control, so essential to the soldering process, is guaranteed by an integrated temperature control system that provides continuous feedback during the soldering process and displays thermal profiles clearly in real time. Equipped with a SMEMA board conveyor system, Firefly can also be integrated easily into any production line.
