ASM Pacific Technology

Best-in-class SIPLACE placement solutions
Innovative hardware, smart software, and a whole lot more

The ASM SMT Solutions segment consists of SMT Printing Solutions (DEK) and SMT Placement Solutions (SIPLACE). As the technology leader in the placement machine field with customer-specific developments and supported by a global network of sales and service offices, SMT Placement Solutions has traditionally enjoyed a strong position in the high-volume factories of large global OEMs and EMS companies.

With innovative and flexibly scalable placement solutions and intelligent software products, ASM is also setting new standards in the highly flexible, job-oriented production of the small lots that are common in the automation and medical technology fields as well as in many small and medium-sized factories in Western industrial countries. With new placement solutions which were developed especially for small local production plants in Asia, the company has successfully managed to increase its market share in the rapidly growing mid-size market segment as well.

In addition to best-in-class placement solutions, customers have access to perfectly coordinated line solutions whose modules and software components were developed in close cooperation with Printing Solutions to deliver significantly enhanced and improved process integration to the factory floor.  They enable users to make their detailed production scheduling more flexible with intelligent software solutions, control their material flows from receiving to setup electronically and optimize their line processes via autonomous expert systems. Each of these steps brings them closer to the intelligent SMT factory of the future.
