“When diverse perspectives are brought to the table, we get more and better ideas. At Mycronic, we live on our ability to innovate. Ensuring diversity and inclusion is therefore business critical for us- and a lot more fun!”– Johanna Jarl, SVP Human Resources, Mycronic.
Leonardo Da Vinci never wrote code. But this statement, made over 500 years ago, serves as a guiding philosophy for Mycronic Software Engineer Nicolas Guillot and the international team. Together they are designing breakthrough software for tomorrow’s zero-defects smart assembly plants.
In 1996, as a newly graduated mechanical engineer from Sweden’s Royal Institute of Technology, Per Carlqvist joined Mycronic with a clear-eyed ambition. First, gain hands-on experience with the most interesting technology available. Second, use it to make a real difference in people’s daily work. And third, pursue these interests to experience new ways of working, living and creating together with people from around the world. “At Mycronic,” he says, “I’ve been fortunate to be able to do all three. So, you could say I’ve found several of my dream jobs all in one place.”
It’s sometimes called the ping-pong effect: the back-and-forth task of adjusting 3D inspection models to eliminate false calls without increasing the risk of escapes. Thanks to a new automated programming assistant, all this work can now be put to better use. Every time you certify a real defect or false call, it remembers, constantly updating your inspection library based on real production data. The result is an inspection process that automatically moves closer to perfection every time it’s in use, saving programmers time, effort – and their most valuable resource of all – concentration.
Naturally there are many trends impacting the future of the electronics industry. These include personalization, digitalization, miniaturization, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and Big Data. But what are the key trends impacting manufacturers like Mycronic – and maybe even your business?
With rapid electrification comes massive change. From electric vehicles to industrial robotics to power control systems, the world is witnessing the rollout of advanced electronics by the billions. Each more complex and more specialized than the last. And each requiring the highest levels of quality and reliability. How will manufacturers of electronics seize this growing opportunity? The latest vision technology from Mycronic points toward a faster, sharper, and smarter path forward.
