Flexibility and shorter changeover times in assembly processes

  • Niels Jansen MSc
  • Etteplan Nederland

The need for validating and optimizing assembly performance quickly and reliably for new/updated products is growing. In a joint project, Etteplan developed a solution for the back-end assembly of photonic products where flexibility and short changeover times in the production sequence is a crucial element. This flexibility was important to optimize and shorten the lead time of the R&D process. Based on open source software, Etteplan developed this solution for their machine platform combining a simple and efficient block based programming interface, enabling product companies and foundries to program and configure the machine’s production sequence and parameters themselves.
