A fast-changing business world such as electronic manufacturing demands high efficiency and flexibility to keep in business. Today, electronic manufacturers are more and more required to adopt to new processes quickly to ensure competitiveness.
The JUKI Line Solution Software increases total efficiency of the complete assembly and production line processes thanks to traceability and line software solution. It provides visibility and verification of materials, product and machine status throughout the entire manufacturing process – from all of the process steps performed on a work order or serialized product. Built over the Cogiscan Track, Trace and Control platform, the JUKI Line solution combines efficient real-time data collection of work-in-progress with an alert system to remove human error to correct previously undetected issues in production processes. Leading to safer and more reliable end-user products, for instance, better process regulation and quality as well as reduced material and assembly costs.
The JUKI Line Solution easily connects to third party machines, e.g., a marking and labeling machine and also harvests all of the traceability data for other SMT lines from other equipment suppliers in order to provide a common interface for operators and achieve a high degree of data uniformity across the different SMT lines and equipment.
Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
