Cimar doubles SMD capacity with MYDATA
Article Type: Industry news From: Soldering & Surface Mount Technology, Volume 23, Issue 3
With the purchase of a new MY100 Synergy production line from MYDATA, Dutch subcontractor Cimar Electronics, a specialist in the manufacture of assemblies and systems for industrial applications, has doubled its SMD capacity. The company has made this investment to help it handle the fast rising demand for its services, and to provide headroom for anticipated further growth.
As part of the same upgrade programme, Cimar has also implemented a comprehensive manufacturing execution software (MES) solution from Aegis Industrial Software, a certified MYDATA partner. Cimar selected MYDATA and Aegis as suppliers for this important project on the basis of its excellent past experience with MYDATA equipment and service.
The Synergy SMD line purchased by Cimar complements the company’s existing MYDATA MY15 line, which has, for some time been working at full capacity. The new line comprises new-generation MYDATA MY100DX14 and MY100SX10 machines that can readily achieve a placement rate of 55,000 cph when working in combination. Should it ever be necessary, the Synergy arrangement also offers the option of allowing the machines to operate independently.
Cimar’s new Aegis MES package covers the existing and the new SMD lines. It greatly simplifies programming and job scheduling, as well as the company’s paper usage by eliminating the need for printed work instructions. The Aegis MES system also provides ready access to detailed real-time information about all parts of the production process.
