Triumph chooses Synergy from MYDATA
Article Type: Industry news From: Soldering & Surface Mount Technology, Volume 24, Issue 1
To expand its SMT capabilities in response to sustained growth in demand for its products, Triumph Group, a leading specialist developer and manufacturer of all-electric actuation and motion control systems, has chosen a MYDATA Synergy line with a throughput of up to 21,000 cph. The new line has been installed at Triumph’s UK manufacturing plant in Flintshire, where it works alongside the company’s existing MYDATA MY12 pick-and-place machine.
Triumph’s new Synergy line comprises two MY100LX10 pick-and-place machines, one of which is equipped with a 15,000 cph Hydra head, the other with a 6,600 cph Midas head. The machines, which are from MYDATA’s new-generation MY100 range that combines flexibility with high throughput, are arranged in a Synergy configuration with the new line-mode option, which means that it is unnecessary to split programs across the two machines.
To maximise the quality of the boards produced and by the new line while minimising the need for reworking, both of the new MYDATA machines are equipped with an automatic component test facility that checks the values of the components prior to placement.
As well as purchasing the new Synergy line, Triumph has upgraded the software on its existing MY12 machine to the latest version, thereby ensuring that the machine achieves its full potential.
Triumph has also invested in MYDATA’s innovative unlimited training package for its operators. In return for a small monthly payment, this package allows the company to send as many staff as it wishes, as often as it wishes, to any of MYDATA’s open training courses, thereby ensuring that its operators are always fully trained in getting the best from the MYDATA equipment.
