Batch size one
Combine software-driven solder paste application with large feeder capacity and the unique FlowLine concept. Add to that a planning software that can analyze hundreds of work orders and organize them into family kits, comfortably sized to allow for hours of non-stop production. The result is an ideal solution for high-mix – down to batch size one.
Automation all the way
When batch sizes go down, up-time is bound to suffer, right? Not with a FlowLine setup. The unique combination of 100% automation, large feeder capacity and proactive replenishment notifications finally closes the gap between high-volume and short-series production. Continuous operation is no longer a luxury, reserved for a few. It can be accomplished also with batch sizes of 50, 20 or even single boards.
Stop building for the shelf
When there is no penalty for changing over the line, a whole new world of possibilities opens up. Suddenly, batch sizes can be optimized for downstream operations such as inspection, test and box build. Instead of building safety stock, you can build-to-order, with all the benefits of reduced working capital and smaller risk of getting stuck with old-revision products.
- Zero changeover time with no operator intervention
- Stencil-free, software-driven printing
- Feeder capacity enough for family kitting and on-the-fly changeovers
- Electrical verification of resistors, capacitors, diodes and transistors
