Thinking outside the line
Mr. Liu Haifeng has never been one to stick with the status quo. As General Manager of Wuxi Good Electronics Co., Ltd., he is always on the hunt for the latest production technologies, new manufacturing concepts and better ways to serve his customers. The company’s current production setup shows just how far the right technologies – and an innovative mind – can push flexible assembly into new frontiers.
Taking productivity to new heights
Debating whether to upgrade from racks and shelves to an intelligent material handling system? With the help of Mycronic's storage towers, one Florida-based electronics manufacturer shows how smarter material handling not only cuts kitting times and repetitive manual work – it can also significantly increase production volume.
Solder paste perfection at jet speed
Since its introduction over a decade ago, solder paste jet printing has continued to improve the quality and versatility of electronics manufacturers worldwide. This is especially true in the world of high-mix electronics, where the high accuracy and high flexibility of software-driven assembly processes are crucial to competitiveness. Now, with faster jetting speeds, a wider range of compatible solder pastes and tightly integrated solder paste inspection (SPI) capabilities, jet printing has matured into a powerful platform for increased production efficiency and improved first-pass yield.
Exploring pioneering ideas
Innovation is in our DNA, and being innovative means daring to enter uncharted territory. In January 2022, Mycronic launched its Sustainable Innovation Fund. Mycronic already invests 12 percent of its revenues in R&D and with this fund we will expand our investments even more.
Cooperation in software development
In the electronics industry, change is everywhere. With the rising complexity in SMT production comes a greater need for automation, process improvement and quality data. For Mycronic, every change is an opportunity, and one key factor is to develop and nurture the software supporting the changing future for our customers. The work, is enabled through strong teamwork.
Reducing e-waste through innovation
Global consumption of electrical and electronic equipment is on the rise. When these products enter an end-of-life state, a large amount of the equipment becomes trash. E-waste, as it is called, is the world’s fastest growing waste stream due to not just higher consumption, but short life cycles and few options for repair. Meeting the rising demand for electronic products while ensuring the reduction of the products’ ecological footprint is one of the electronic industry’s biggest challenges.
Programming just got simpler
Faster programming. Smarter guidance. Zero false calls. When it comes to advanced 3D AOI, demands are high and experienced operators are often in short supply. Mycronic’s latest answer is the MYPro I series 3D AOI, which leverages powerful machine learning algorithms to enable rapid programming and easy implementation of high-performance AOI for any operator in any production mix.
For a rugged world
The world is witnessing a massive rollout of heavy-duty boards. Whether for broadband infrastructure, new data centers or electric vehicle fleets, these electronics need reliable protection against an enormous variety of environmental stresses. This is where the MYC60 industrial dispenser comes in, enabling automated 24/7 dispensing of structural, thermal, sealing and bonding fluids across a range of industry applications.
