      ASM visualizes the Smart Factory with Augmented Reality, CFX demo, Workflow solutions

      At APEX 2018, February 27 to March 1 in San Diego, SMT Solutions provider ASM shed a special spotlight on its industry-leading capabilities for Smart Factory implementation. The Hermes Standard and the new IPC Standard CFX were buzzy topics at the ASM booth, underlining the increasing need for standardization in electronics manufacturing to achieve a more integrated, transparent production floor. Visitors to the ASM booth could see the capabilities of CFX with ASM machines via a link provided by the IPC: they were able to access live data on the machine status. An Augmented Reality tour at the ASM booth guided visitors through vital workflows in an electronics production and visualized data and information flow as facilitated by ASM solutions, giving show delegates a view into the efficiencies that can be gained through workflow optimization.

      APEX Visitors to Take Part in Augmented Reality Workflow Experience; View Global Customers’ ASM Smart Factory SuccessASM to Showcase Smart Workflows in Practice at APEX 2018

      Expanding on last year’s show floor Smart Factory tour, ASM Assembly Systems will leverage IPC APEX Expo 2018 to detail Smart Factory implementation through an augmented reality (AR) experience followed by video of real-world success at leading global manufacturers. Visitors to ASM booth 1001 during the February 27 – March 1 event will take part in an AR tour through the Smart Factory, during which the data and material flows that occur in a plant setting will be superimposed over corresponding equipment, giving show delegates a view into the efficiencies that can be gained through workflow optimization. After the tour, guests are invited to the ASM café, where top electronics companies will share their stories in a series of videos about successful implementation of ASM workflow solutions.

      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.
