Mycronic AB (publ) launches smarter electronic inventory control and large board applications at the IPC APEX trade show on February 24-26 in San Diego, USA.
Mycronic's business areas SMT (Surfact Mount Technology) offers flexible production solutions for electronics manufacturing. The product offering includes production equipment for application of solder paste, robots for mounting electronics components on circuit boards (Pick&place), automated storage solutions and software. Now Mycronic launches new functionality for existing equipment.
The new material handling system Agilis Smart Bin builds on the success of the award-winning Agilis feeder concept. Electronic labels are attached directly to the Agilis Smart Bins, used for storage and handling of component reels. These so-called e-labels allow machine operators to receive just-in-time information about material movements, anywhere on the shop floor, thanks to a factory-wide wireless communication link. This reduces manual steps and improves inventory control.
Mycronic also extends its jet printing offering with the ability to handle larger boards. This extended capability is often needed in the production of e.g. LED lighting. The new option will extend panel size capacity by 50 percent on the MY600 Jet Printer.
Together with the MY200 pick-and-place platform, Mycronic now offers a flexible and versatile total assembly solution for large-board applications.
