ASM & TQ-Systems Seefeld: Field test with ASM ProcessExpert
TQ-Systems develops and manufactures products at six German and two international locations for the manufacturing, aerospace and medical technology industries, to name just a few. The company has grown steadily for more than 23 years to 1,400 employees today. At the TQ-Systems site Gut Delling in Seefeld, Germany, the inline expert system ASM ProcessExpert is currently being tested in the field.  It enables TQ-Systems to further improve its printing operations and the entire SMT production process.
In late 2015, the company was considering the purchase of an inspection system when ASM Assembly Systems introduced the ASM ProcessExpert. The idea to conduct a joint field test was therefore not far-fetched. Anja Heitmeir, TQ-Systems’ long-term account manager at ASM: "We purposely picked TQ-Systems as a field test partner. The company's high level of technological expertise and the diversity of production jobs provided an ideal starting point." For TQ-Systems in turn, the ASM ProcessExpert was what they had been looking for.
TQ-Systems SMT production and process expert Benedikt Stark: "The ASM ProcessLens supports our production philosophy of repeatedly analyzing even established processes. We took a fresh look at everything and made improvements based on the data and recommendations available to us. The parameters are better now, the printing process is more stable, and the printing results are more repeatable. First-pass yield, positioning accuracy, solder quantities – we sense improvements in efficiency and quality everywhere."
