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.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...

Physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (run jointly by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics) have developed an attosecond electron microscope that allows them to visualize the dispersion of light in time and space, and observe the motions of electrons in atoms.
The most basic of all physical interactions in nature is that between light and matter. This interaction takes place in attosecond times (i.e. billionths of a...
