Learn fast, act quickly – Factory improvement solution, IPQC Expert
We introduce one of our productivity improvement solutions, IPQC Expert, which collects data from pick and place machine (chip mounter) production data, analyzes change points, and issues optimum guidance to respond to events that occurred.
Reduce the time operators are tied up in changeover work to zero – NXTR PM Smart Changer
The process of changing product models from the current production to the next production involves a number of manual processes such as solder collection, mask replacement, and replacement of panel backup blocks and backup pins. It takes a lot of time and effort on the part of operators to perform these tasks. Fuji has already employed automation at its machines in the form of non-stop solder and cleaning paper supply during production, and automatically changing conveyor widths and backup pins. In addition to these, NXTR PM also allows for automatic exchange of screen masks using the PM Smart Changer, making it possible to reduce the time operators are tied up in changeover work to zero. All operators need to do is have the masks and backup blocks needed for next production ready in the Smart Changer rack, which they can do at a time of their own choosing, and load the Smart Changer rack into the NXTR PM. When a command to change product models is issued from the upper system, solder collection, mask exchange, backup block and backup pin change, conveyor width change, and solder supply are all performed automatically.
