Siplace delivers more flexibility and quality to European electronics manufacturers

03.06.2008
Siemens will present its portfolio, which is designed for the needs of European electronics manufacturers, at this year’s SMT Hybrid Packaging Trade Show in Nuremberg.

Highlights will be the Siplace X4i, which is the company’s top model and the fastest 4-gantry placement solution in the market. In addition, Siemens will also exhibit the powerful and cost-effective machines of the Siplace D-Series, demonstrating their high placement quality and flexibility for small and intermediate lot sizes.


Furthermore, the experts of the Siplace team will show how their software and services enable manufacturers to achieve non-stop product changeovers, zero-dpm (defects per million) quality and the fastest new product introductions. Using Siplace’s unique ‘Compare’ Checklists, visitors to the SMT show will be able to compare all relevant performance aspects with solutions that are offered by other manufacturers.

With its Siplace X4i, Siemens will present the absolute world record holder in placement performance at this year’s SMT show in Nuremberg. The machine is capable of placing more than 102,000 components per hour (cph) in accordance with the international IPC standard. This corresponds to 120,000 cph based on the Siplace benchmark test and a theoretical placement speed of 135,000 cph.

What is important for European electronics manufacturers: The Siplace X4i combines this performance with high flexibility thanks to its synchronous or asynchronous dual-lane transport and its intelligent X-type component feeders, as well as its innovative Productivity Lane and i-Placement. features.

For electronics manufacturers in the mid-sized market segment, the Siplace D-Series offers an outstanding price-performance ratio along with high quality. For example, the D-platform features the same digital vision system as the high-end X-Series machines. The D-Series machines are capable of processing the complete component spectrum down to the super-small 01005 components of the next generation efficiently and with maximum placement accuracy.

Another highlight of Siemens’s show presentation is the Siplace ‘Compare’ initiative, which provides electronics manufacturers with valuable help when it comes to making far-reaching investment decisions. Using Siplace’s unique ‘Compare’ checklists, electronics manufacturers can prepare objective comparisons of the performance and cost aspects of various solution providers. The checklists ensure that all major investment decision aspects, based on IPC Standards, will be taken into account.

At the SMT Show in Nuremberg, Electronics manufacturers will see first hand how easy the Siplace Vision Teaching Station makes it to describe components of new products quickly and easily, as well as generating and optimizing placement programs offline without having to interrupt the production lines. In combination with Siplace Calibration Services, the Siplace Vision Teaching Station makes it possible to achieve zero-dpm process quality right from the start. In the Software section, Siemens will show in a live presentation how the Siplace LES software maximizes line productivity with non-stop setup changeovers even for small lot sizes.

In the Services section Siplace gives insight into the broad spectrum of Siplace services, which ranges from Traceability concepts and Calibration Services to Feeder Care and customer-specific and success-oriented All-Included Packages.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
