Meet Mycronic at APEX

Quality challenges? Unwanted stoppages? Unnecessary programming?

Through data-driven production there are more ways than ever to gain new insights and better control the electronics production. Mycronic’s vision is to enable a zero-defect assembly line with the highest utilization for any product mix.

At IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego 4-6 February, Mycronic will show a wide array of state-of-the-art assembly technologies that will help improve quality, flexibility and productivity in the electronics manufacturing, including new advances in machine-to-machine communication, full SMT line capabilities and automated material handling systems.

At the exhibition we will show;

  • Our full SMT line solution with expanded capabilities; including inspection machines, jet printers, pick-and-place machines and storage solutions
  • How integrations give new insights to further enable the smart factory
  • MYSmart’s advanced conformal coating, dispensing and plasma treatment robots

Date: 4-6 February, 2020
Place: San Diego Convention Center, CA, USA
Mycronic booth: #1336

Mycronic's MYPro Line for PCB assemblyOur latest developments that tackle the rising complexity in the electronics assembly

Award-winning AI² solution for a zero-defect production

Discover how our fully integrated 3D SPI and jet printing solution automatically identifies and corrects missing or damaged solder paste print to help you maintain the highest throughput speeds with simpler stencil designs and zero defects.

Award-winning SIGMA Link

SIGMA Link software, a real-time web-based interface that correlates data between solder paste inspection and automated optical inspection, now features more intuitive process controls to further improve inspection efficiency and first pass yield.

Unleash new levels in productivity with MY700 Jet Printer and Dispenser

Mycronic's software-driven MY700 solution offers solder paste jet printing and high-speed jet dispensing of adhesives with unrivalled flexibility while reducing production costs and manual rework. The MY700 allows you to produce complex boards with a speed of more than one million dots per hour.

Our versatile pick-and-place solution smarter than ever

The industry's most versatile pick-and-place solution is now faster, smaller and smarter than ever. Learn how the new MY300HX and MY300EX machines make it possible to build lines that maintain the highest utilization levels at speeds up to 100,000 components per hour.

Stops defects at their source with the new K-Series 3D AOI

Find out how our advanced 3D AOI system helps maximize first pass yield with a scalable solution for both pre-reflow and post-reflow inspection. Also, the new AOI software platform embeds machine learning based technology resulting in faster programming.

Smarter material flow

Stock accuracy, traceability, and delivery performance are key aspects of a material handling system. Increased automation is required, and in many cases is already ongoing. The Mycronic SMD Tower provides more intelligent and automatic access to component reels and trays.

Advanced conformal coating and dispensing robots

The MYC50 conformal coating system, with its intuitive user interface, precision spray valve and flow monitoring system, promises to deliver high levels of precision, repeatability and yield. Also, the MYD series' MYD55 demonstrates true 5-axis dispensing and the expansive valve offering enables you to dispense any fluid to meet your requirements.

Safe plasma cleaning robots increase yields

The new MYS atmospheric plasma system with safe plasma technology, protects your bottom line and is safe to the touch. These robots safely ensure cleaner operations and up to 50 times faster cleaning speeds, higher yields and improved traceability compared to traditional vacuum plasma systems.

Paperless productivity

– changeover guidance with Agilis Smart Bin

Missing components. Sticky notes falling off. Hunting for information. The list of reasons for unplanned downtime could go on. But in most cases, line utilization is heavily dependent on efficient material and information handling.

Lower changeover cost with Agilis Smart Bin system

The most common reason for unplanned downtime in high-mix electronics manufacturing is missing material. The Agilis Smart Bin system will help machine operators minimize downtime by ensuring that all needed material is collected and prepared just-in-time for production. 

Building on our already powerful material handling solutions, including the SMD Tower automated storage, the Agilis Smart Bin system brings unparalleled ease-of-use to the kitting and changeover process. The end result is faster changeovers and higher utilization – improving your bottom line.

Key benefits

  • Paperless kitting guidance and changeover instructions – right in front of you
  • Preload in Agilis Bins for upcoming jobs – without losing track of material location
  • Easily locate missing components wherever they are
  • Faster changeovers and higher utilization

Empty bin. Free to load for next job

Pre-loading bin F-375 according to MYCenter guidance. Kitting complete. Insert magazine in machine MY100B, slot 7. Machine running. Keep magazine in machine MY100B, slot 7. Changeover. Bring reels in positions 4, 9 and 12 to Workstation 2.

Complete kitting and changeover guidance

The intuitive instructions are presented where the actual work takes place, directly on the material container, minimizing unnecessary movements across the factory floor in search for information.

The upper-left side of the e-label shows an icon for easy indication of the bin’s material status: kitting ongoing, ready to bring to machine, ready for changeover, etc. To the right of the icon, the operator can view primary instructions such as machine name, feeder slot, the material destination during changeover, and more.

How it works Mycronic Agilis Smart Bin scanner

The Agilis Smart Bin system provides intuitive paperless kitting guidance, based on wireless, electronic labels (e-labels) that communicate with the central data server via a radio base station. Each Agilis Smart Bin is equipped with an e-label that is mechanically attached to the front of the bin.

The MYCenter Material Handling software guides the operator through the entire kitting and changeover process, by presenting instructions on the PC monitor, but also on the e-labels. All actions are confirmed using the hand-held barcode scanner.
