SMT lines learn and optimize themselves
The ASM ProcessExpert is the world’s first self-learning inline expert system for electronics manufacturing.
Its first component is the ASM ProcessLens, our innovative high-precision 5D-SPM (Solder Paste Measurement) system (3D + 2D) that employs a chip with 8 million software-controlled micro-mirrors.
Its second component is the state-of-the-art ASM ProcessEngine, which uses big-data technologies to analyze all current and historical sensor data, learns from the results, and uses them to improve the DEK printers’ operations.
Only our ASM ProcessExpert can do this:
- DFM HealthCheck:
By running “virtual prints” based on the stencil data, the ASM ProcessExpert identifies critical areas in the stencil layout that may destabilize the actual printing process. The user can use other printer parameters and see their consequence to the stability of the prrinting process promptly.
- Fast NPI with “fractional experiments”:
When new products are introduced, the ASM ProcessExpert takes only a few minutes to determine all process parameters and ensure a optimized printing process within a very short time.
- Permanent and pro-active optimization:
The ASM ProcessExpert checks the printing results, continuously optimizes the printing process, and controls the printers, for example by adjusting the cleaning cycles and correction of print offset.
- Your gain:
Stable printing processes, significant time savings, lower costs, more yield, and a much more productive line.
