No discarded PCBs after a power outage thanks to SIPLACE Auto Recovery
Yap Seng Thong, Manufacturing Manager
“We often experience power shortages requiring us to completely clear the line and discard all partially processed PCBs. This is expensive and wasteful.”
Our challenge: Does the SIPLACE team offer an option to continue with the SMT production without any major problems after a power outage?
SIPLACE Auto Recovery comes in handy in areas with frequent power outages or other interruptions. With this utility, the machines continue exactly where they left off when the production restarts. The line does not have to be cleared, and each PCB will be fully populated. In some cases, the machine may request a manual confirmation whether or not a component has already been placed. To make this process as easy as possible, the machine places the component camera over each position
