TRADE SHOWS + EVENTS Fuji Innovation Days – All about Smart Factory What the digital age is all about The Innovation Day in Kelsterbach by Fuji Europe Corporation was innovative and varied with extensive topics. It took place at the company’s German headquarters, and began with presentations from Nobuyuki Soga, President, and Klaus Gross, Executive Director. They discussed their milestones, which included the opening of their German location, their official name change, and the recent celebration of their 60-year anniversary. The company is looking forward to the future this year and staying innovative as well as employee-oriented. With their recent accomplishments, they are looking to expand their team of experts to stay innovative for their customers.

Source: Charlene Hesse With the theme “All about Smart Factory”, presentations from their partners focused on the digital age, automated digitalized processes, miniaturized component, high quality stenciling, and flexible, traceable manufacturing. A demonstration of the Fuji line also took place, as well as, an overview of their roadmap, which included details of their fast-forward technology. In the near future, the company is planning to release a variety of tools, including the handling of odd form components, optical verification capability, and the support of tray operation. Future projects on automation are also in the works, including automatic warehouses, automatic part suppliers, and automatic maintenance. Ulf Oestermann, Fraunhofer IZM Where is the research going for the digitized production process? The digitalized production process is an aspiration for the electronics industry. The dream is to have an autonomous production with a goal of being self-organized, from the very beginning of describing functions to the end of delivery. The most important parts, as circuit development, housing design and machine manufacturing, Source: Doris Jetter are already digitalized. Changes to work procedures, spatial restructuring, or product changes are first analyzed digitally before they are implemented, in order to identify and eliminate in advance any difficulties that may arise. This saves money and time. Smart, digital helpers support users to make work easier and optimize processes. This is only the beginning. In the future, every single processing step will be clearly traceable down to the smallest part for complete transparent traceability. Ulf Oestermann, Fraunhofer IZM. 34 EPP EUROPE April 2019

Source: Charlene Hesse Stefan Lau, Wilo From digital transformation to smart factory With the Wilo Smart Factory, the production is equipped with new concepts. This primarily involves the consistent planning and control of customer orders in the digital age, in conjunction with the dynamic linking of production and logistics processes. This implements a 5 + 1 production, which means that the raw material cannot be more than five days in the production, to be manufactured in a maximum of one day, between the different production steps. With this, the customer can be supplied as quickly as possible despite individualized products. All processes are supported digitally where the networking enables a real-time check of the process data. The constant exchange of data allows flexible and demand-oriented responses to short-term changes. Jonas Ernst & Abderazzak Essanhaji, Fuji All about Nexim The presentation focused on new features and conversions to Nexim (Nexus Integrated Manufacturing System). With the three tools Plan, Do and See, the operator can easily create new parts and programs, as well as, use optimization tools. It also supports the connection to MES systems, the handling of luminaire class products, as well as, the control of MSL components, which can be connected to storage systems. With the clear user interface, the operator can find his way quickly and easily. Today, a customer can already have many tools included in the standard purchase, there is no production installation limitation. The standard functions of Fuji Flexa and Fujitrax as well as the possibility of other options, which are constantly being further developed, were discussed. same. Through participation, the audience was asked to take on challenges in a self-determined and trusting way, in order to break out of unfavorable thinking and behavioral routines. Only those who are able to motivate themselves, actually become motivated and can then develop their potential. Helge Schimanski, Fraunhofer ISIT Processing of discrete components Miniaturized component geometries combined with increased packing density present challenges for the manufacturing process. A systematic evaluation of the process parameters leads to processreliable application recommendations. The recommendation that was developed for the printed circuit board layout and printing process is based on what was then the state of the art and end user specifications, such as optically testable solder joints. High quality stencils can increase paste transfer efficiency and reduce the required area ratio. The danger of overpressure is caused by pad reduction. However, the 3D solder paste inspection provides a necessary quantitative control. Components of the metric assembly Nicola Fritze Just do it Failure to implement knowledge is due to a lack of courage to change. In her activating lecture, author and keynote speaker, Nicola Fritze, explained why and how this could be changed and emphasized that motivation is the key factor. Using extraordinary activities, she showed how thinking and perception can be set in motion. The goal was to take a step back from the comfort zone and avoid routines in the future, since 80 to 90 % of every day thoughts are the Helge Schimanski, Fraunhofer ISIT.
