Automatic scheduling according to the actual work and tasks required for production
Automatic scheduling according to the actual work and tasks required for production

Create schedules for the entire production floor, including operation at the production line and offline tasks

Nexim Scheduler (scheduling tool)

NXTR SNXTR A

Scheduler automatically creates the optimal production schedule that includes the optimal conditions for your production, taking into account multiple factors including panel widths and reflow temperatures.
It also recommends feeder setups that would result in the least changeover work when inserting a new model into the production schedule.

Prevent the repeating of tasks once production preparation has already begun

Nexim Scheduler (part allocation)

NXTR SNXTR A

It is possible to allocate (reserve) the required parts based on the set schedule. This makes it possible to check that the inventory is there, preventing the repetition of tasks due to a lack of the necessary parts after production preparation has begun.

Part picking
Collect the parts required in the shortest time and along the shortest work path, without mistakes
Collect the parts required in the shortest time and along the shortest work path, without mistakes

Efficiently collect the necessary parts using the shortest route

Material Navigator Mobile

NXTR SNXTR A

Parts are taken from the shelf in the order they are listed in Material Navigator Mobile, and scanned to complete the picking sequence.Note
Because work can be performed while checking against the system, even inexperienced operators can collect parts quickly and accurately.

Note: When using Nexim Scheduler

Efficiently collect the necessary parts using the shortest route

Error-free checkout of the necessary parts

Linking with an automatic part warehouse

NXTR SNXTR A

Parts can be checked out of an automatic part warehouse simply by sending the information for the necessary parts from Integrated Production System - Nexim to the automatic part warehouse.
This automated work drastically reduces the time taken compared to manual processes, as the right parts can be picked without the need to search for them.

Offline changeover
Issued guidance enables changeover work to be performed without confusion
Issued guidance enables changeover work to be performed without confusion

Effective support to enable changeover in a short time without any confusion

Nexim Kitting Station
Offline changeover power unit

NXTR S

When scanning the ID code attached to a part reel, guidance is displayed on the monitor of the computer used for offline changeover, showing the slot to which the feeder should be loaded.
Because the monitor also shows whether the position the feeder was loaded to was correct, operators can perform changeover work quickly and correctly without hesitation.

Note: An automatic feeder exchange system that is used for NXTR A model

Check the status of feeders at a glance with LEDs 

Advanced feeder stand-IF

NXTR S

Advanced feeder stand-IF indicates the status of a loaded feeder using LED patterns. The visual identification of whether a feeder is usable or not makes it possible for operators to tell which feeders can be removed without hesitation.

Production
Stable line operation through linked equipment and autonomous control
Automation of changeover for production that needs few staff to run Stable line operation through linked equipment and autonomous control

Scanning an ID code changes the production program for the entire line

Automatic changeover for entire lines

NXTR SNXTR A

Programs for all machines in the line configuration can be changed just by scanning the kanban ID or panel ID code.
This removes the risk of selecting the wrong program and reduces the workload during changeover, leading to an improved operation rate.

Maintain solder printing quality by linking with SPI machines

Feedback from SPI to printer

NXTR SNXTR A

Inspection results are received from the SPI, and the appropriate response to trends that show a change in conditions can be performed automatically.
Because changes such as positional deviations and smeared or missing solder are responded to before they lead to problems, high-quality solder printing is maintained.

Maintain solder printing quality by linking with SPI machines

Maintain high-accuracy parts placement by linking with AOI machines

Offsetting the placement position

NXTR SNXTR A

Trends in changes in placement accuracy are picked up on based on the AOI inspection results, and placement positions are corrected automatically.
Because these changes are responded to before they lead to problems, high-accuracy part placement is maintained.
In the unlikely event that the AOI detects a sudden defect, the line is stopped to prevent defective products from continuing to the next stage.

Maintain high-accuracy parts placement by linking with AOI machines

Avoid placing parts on boards that have poor solder print quality

Remote board skip

NXTR SNXTR A

Part placement is skipped for boards that have poor solder printing based on the SPI results, preventing the production of defective products.
It is also possible to skip part placement on boards that have not passed inspection on multiboard panels.

Verifying materials before use prevents setting mistakes and stops parts that are past their use by date from being used

Verification for printers and pick and place machines

NXTR SNXTR A

The IDs for the parts and materials to be used in production are scanned and verified with the system to prevent setting mistakes.
It is possible to manage the use by dates for solder and the usage count for materials, preventing materials that might cause defects from being used, for continuous high-quality production.

Never overlook line errors

FSF Mobile Conductor

NXTR SNXTR A

Error and warning notifications are sent to mobile terminals held by operators. By preventing error and warning signs from the equipment from being overlooked and encouraging prompt action, the system helps to maintain uptime with fewer personnel.
It can also be used as a notification tool to implement work in a timely manner.

Learn fast, act quickly when line errors occur

IPQC Expert

NXTR SNXTR A

This system analyzes information collected from the pick and place machine production data to check for changes and provides guidance for the best remedy to the problem that has occurred.
Errors can be picked up on based on short-term trends, so that the issue can be addressed before it becomes a larger problem.

Managing the use-by time restrictions (floor life) of parts that are sensitive to humidity

Dry components

NXTR SNXTR A

Steam ruptures during reflow can occur for parts that are sensitive to moisture. Managing the floor life after opening the parts’ moisture-proof packaging prevents this from occurring.Note
It is possible to bake these parts in a dry oven to reset the floor life.

Note: It is necessary to register the storage location in Nexim
