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: Unprecedented insight into two-dimensional magnets using diamond quantum sensors

For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the magnetization of individual atomic layers of the material chromium triiodide. In addition, they found a long-sought explanation for the unusual magnetic properties of the material. The journal Science has published the findings.

The use of atomically thin, two-dimensional van der Waals materials promises innovations in numerous fields in science and technology. Scientists around the...

Im Focus: Full speed ahead for SmartEEs at Automotive Interiors Expo 2019

Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.

It surrounds us and almost unconsciously accompanies us through everyday life - printed electronics. It starts with smart labels or RFID tags in clothing, we...

Im Focus: Energy-saving new LED phosphor

The human eye is particularly sensitive to green, but less sensitive to blue and red. Chemists led by Hubert Huppertz at the University of Innsbruck have now developed a new red phosphor whose light is well perceived by the eye. This increases the light yield of white LEDs by around one sixth, which can significantly improve the energy efficiency of lighting systems.

Light emitting diodes or LEDs are only able to produce light of a certain colour. However, white light can be created using different colour mixing processes.

Im Focus: Quantum gas turns supersolid

Researchers led by Francesca Ferlaino from the University of Innsbruck and the Austrian Academy of Sciences report in Physical Review X on the observation of supersolid behavior in dipolar quantum gases of erbium and dysprosium. In the dysprosium gas these properties are unprecedentedly long-lived. This sets the stage for future investigations into the nature of this exotic phase of matter.

Supersolidity is a paradoxical state where the matter is both crystallized and superfluid. Predicted 50 years ago, such a counter-intuitive phase, featuring...
