Custom-tailored setup concepts: The exclusive Setup Workshop at the STM Center of Competence
Fixed component carts, family setups or high-mix floating setups – there is no one-size-fits-all concept for efficient setup management on the line. At the high-intensity Setup Workshop offered by the SMT Center of Competence, many electronics manufacturers took advantage of the opportunity to develop custom-tailored setup concepts for their specific production model in order to massively cut their SMT lines’ downtime.
They didn't just discuss the theoretical aspects of the whole spectrum of setup concepts, but tested and analyzed them in high-intensity breakout workshops. "Our philosophy at the SMT Center of Competence is to be hands-on. The participants should see for themselves how they can streamline their everyday production with small tips and tricks," said Bernhard Fritz, who heads the SMT Center of competence.
