Saki Joins the ASYS PULSE Community for PCB Assembly Line Productivity


Reading time ( words)

Saki Corporation has joined the ASYS PULSE Community to network its automated inspection and measurement systems with electronic production equipment from other PULSE member companies.

ASYS (Dornstadt, Germany) created the PULSE Community to bring together system manufacturers in the electronics sector with products that are "PULSE-capable". These systems have custom connections that connect to the PUSLE open interface.

"Our aim is to give customers a solution for the entire production line, and we're following that up across the board," said Erwin Beck, senior vice president product management and marketing at ASYS. "In our eyes, it means we will be able to respond appropriately to our customers' requirements in the future in an open way that is not manufacturer-dependent."

Herbert Natterer, product manager of the ASYS Industrie 4.0 solution commented, "It's great that we can include Saki's inspection systems within the PULSE line so operators can monitor and control the operation of these systems through the PULSE network. We are looking forward to the collaboration and professional exchange. Thanks to the membership of Saki, we have approached our goal to establish one solution for the whole production operation."

"Joining the Pulse Community expands Saki's opportunity to maximize production-line productivity. PULSE provides a very practical, convenient, and visual way to monitor the assembly process. It complements the quality assurance and process controls built into our inspection and measurement systems. We are excited to be part of the PULSE Community," said Jarda Neuhauser, deputy general manager at Saki.
