    ASM Back End Systems at PCIM Nuremberg:
    More efficient placement of flip-chips

    ASM, the world’s largest equipment provider for the entire process chain in electronics manufacturing, will be present with its Back End Systems Division at the PCIM trade fair in Nuremberg. Booth 6-123 will also be the site of an innovative premiere for flip-chip placement applications. While inline solutions with die bonders reduce the productivity and flexibility of SMT placement lines, ASM offers a smart combination solution to decouple the wafer handling from the flip-chip placement process. The combination of the SUNBIRD inspection and packaging solution and the SIPLACE TX micron machine, which is optimized for flip-chip placement, improves not only the process stability and yield rates, but delivers significantly more productivity with speeds of up to 78,000 cph (components per hour) for the production of small modules, submodules and SiPs (system-in-package products).

    ASM’s SMT Center of Competence Days offer individual counselling, solutions to boost production efficiency

    Technology leader ASM Assembly Systems is expanding the number of events as well as their topics and formats at the SMT Center of Competence (CoC) in Munich. The CoC impresses visitors with a fully operational SMT production line featuring line-adjacent operations, technologies and machines. The ASM team uses these capabilities for workshops as well as process and application consulting services in open and customer-specific events. Clear goal of these CoC events: participants learn about smart features and functions that boost quality and efficiency of their typical SMT processes and match their specific fields of interest. In their new "Smart SMT Factory Workshops", ASM's process experts focus on eight central workflows that virtually every customer has to contend with.

    The SMT Smart Network: Focus on process improvements
    Sharing skills for the smart SMT factory

    Technology leader ASM has built an open and global network of reference factories with its SMT Smart Network, whose members work with ASM's experts to develop better processes for the smart SMT factory. Visitors of this year’s Productronica industry fair in Munich were already able to benefit from this network. At the ASM booth, several members presented smart, innovative workflows they developed and implemented, explained the resulting efficiency gains, and provided guests with practical tips for their own improvement projects. In addition, monitors spread all over the booth conveyed images of operations and best practices at member companies’ SMT lines.

    New: ASM Remote Smart Factory
    Next-generation technical support

    ASM focuses on connectivity and digitalization also in its technical service and support activities. With its Remote Smart Factory, ASM is introducing the next generation of remote service infrastructure, which uses the company's specially developed Plug-and-Work Box to integrate SIPLACE placement machines, DEK printers and other ASM systems into a local network. This network can in turn establish a secure link to ASM’s global Internet service portal while totally bypassing the user’s regular IT network.  ASM’s service technicians then use this link to connect to the customer's Remote Smart Factory LAN and all networked SMT lines to remotely analyze and troubleshoot them. Since IT security is of top-most importance at all times, remote sessions require a special customer request, and ASM's technicians have to legitimize themselves during each access. All data transfers are encrypted, and all connections are logged in great detail.
