BEA SA: Soldering Machine was the easiest choice, Ersa Selective soldering machine (Versaflow) is another level
Posted: 16 August 18
BEA SA produces their electronics in-house since the beginning of January 2018. These electronics are being used for the sensor systems they sell. Many different and difficult choices had to be made during the construction of the production line. The soldering process was the easiest choice that had to be made, in hindsight. Using industry 4.0 as a starting point for the production line, it was easy to choose selective soldering. Different soldering machines were compared, however, the Ersa...

Using Self-Programming Software to Accelerate 3D Inspection
Posted: 26 July 18
Programming inspection systems can be tedious and time-consuming, but much of this manual effort can be eliminated with new self-programming software. Saki Self-Programming (SSP) requires only a few clicks and takes less than 10 minutes to complete a program. This system can program inspection data criteria, such as name, orientation, parameters, and IPC standards, without the need for a programmer.
Groups of inspection systems can be programmed with a single click. This is extremely...
Exploiting the possibilities of digitalisation in programming selective soldering systems - Real added value with assistance systems
Posted: 16 July 18
We are living in a world increasingly marked by digitalisation and networking. This development is also filtering through into production areas previously shaped by the implicit expertise and experience of individual employees. The demand for reduced reliance on these leads to the deployment of new technologies. Assistance systems play a major role here, supporting production staff in their decision-making.
One assistance system which responds to these requirements to a high degree and provides...
Rommtech automates coating of printed circuit boards. Smans installs in-line automated PVA coating and curing machines
Posted: 12 July 18
Manual coating of electronics is a thing of the past at Rommtech. The automated coating process is now completed with the installation of the PVA Infra Red curing oven by Smans. Rommtech produces electronics for customers and ascertained there was an increase in the demand for the coating of electronics. Stricter regulations and guidelines for electronic application in harsh environments is an important cause for the growing demand. The new process makes sure that the coating is of better...
