      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.

      ASM Assembly Systems at the SMT Hybrid Packaging 2017:
      The smart SMT Factory has become reality at ASM

      The topic smart factory dominated – as before at Nepcon Shanghai and the Apex trade fair in the USA – the SMT Hybrid Packaging 2017 (Nuremberg, Mai 16-18): exhibitors and visitors alike showed deep interest in integrated production concepts and Industry 4.0
      buzzwords. Technology leader ASM Assembly Systems proved that the Smart #1 SMT Factory is no longer a remote vision, but showed concrete realizations. On various workflow counters for typical SMT processes as well as at an integrated production line featuring a DEK NeoHorizon printer, ASM ProcessExpert and a SIPLACE SX, SMT experts demonstrated solutions from the extensive portfolio of the market leader which elevate the level of integration and automation on the shop floor. The highlight on the ASM booth: with the modern communication platform ASM Remote Smart Factory, ASM presented smart technical support for integrated production environments live at the booth.

      ASM’s innovative SMART #1 factory floor draws crowds

      ASM Assembly Systems' live smart factory at APEX, February 14-17, San Diego, proved to be a visitor magnet. Surely the most innovative concept at this year’s show, the ASM booth was set up to represent the shop floor of the future, where all the major workflows in an SMT factory were showcased alongside highlights from ASM’s extensive product portfolio. Visitors were taken through the factory on an interactive, self-guided tour which made use of RFID technology and augmented reality loaded onto tablets. The tour included ten stations such as an offline workflow area featuring receiving, setup preparation, feeder setup and NPI, and programming stations that were designed to inspire discussions on how to handle the respective processes and provided hints and solutions how to solve common production challenges with ASM technology.
