      ASM’s wide range of smart manufacturing tools and solutions is a visitor’s magnet  

      An overall positive mood in the Northern American electronics manufacturing industry was reflected by large visitors at SMTA International 2017, September 19-20, in Rosemont, Illinois. Clearly the most prominent topic of interest: smart manufacturing tools and concepts and how to realize them. As a result, the ASM booth 1205 was highly frequented. Visitors were able to see the newest machines, from ASM’s range of DEK Screen Printers and SIPLACE Pick and Place platforms, as well as ASM line and factory software tools and Process Support Products that can help improve yield and throughput in the SMT process.

      The Hermes Standard presents itself at Productronica 2017

      As previously announced, the members of The Hermes Standard Initiative will present first implementation projects, solutions and use cases at this year’s Productronica (November 14-17, 2017, Munich Trade Fair Centre).  In addition, The Hermes Standard Initiative will hold its second official member meeting on Monday, November 13, during which eleven more well-known equipment manufacturers are expected to announce their participation in the Initiative. The Hermes Standard is an open, non-proprietary standard for machine-to-machine communication in SMT production. Based on the TCP/IP protocol and XML, it enables electronics manufacturers to implement Industry 4.0 concepts much more efficiently on their factory floors. Thomas Bliem, Director Product Management at ASM and chair of The Hermes Standard Initiative:

      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.
