Mycronic Open Days (UK North)

Best Practice for SMT Efficiency

Are you spending too much time fixing print problems or false calls on your AOI?  Are you aware of your current line utilization and what incremental steps you can take to improve it?

Can you articulate what best practice is for your production?

We’re here to help. Visit Mycronic Open Days (UK North) organized in partnership with Minicam Ltd to meet with experts and learn how to define and capture best practice for your production.

The event will be held at Minicam’s production site in Manchester.  Minicam utilise Mycronic production equipment and specialize in the manufacture and distribution of high reliability pipeline inspection systems.

Who should attend?

Production Managers, Process Engineers, Operators, SMT Business Owners etc. and anyone who is interested in improving the efficiency of their SMT production line and learning about the latest technological developments.

What can you expect?

The theme for the event is, “Best Practice for SMT Efficiency”.  Our aim is for every attendee to capture something of value that they can implement back in their production.  We will be addressing every stage of the PCB assembly cycle, from pre-job preparation and component storage through to print, placement, and inspection.

The format will be a mix of presentations and live demonstrations - all delivered by experts in their field.
