TRI to Participate on Fuji's ELF Standard for M2M in SMT Assembly

Reading time ( words)

Test and inspection systems provider Test Research Inc. (TRI) is participating in Fuji’s ELF Standard for M2M in SMT Assembly. TRI believes that Industry 4.0 will revolutionize how the SMT Industry operates by being able to interconnect different machines from different vendors providing and optimizing their production lines.

The ELF standard is reshaping the SMT assembly industry by providing a lean production and manufacturing with faster turnarounds in production levels, thus increasing its participant’s competitiveness. The ELF standard aims to minimize resistance to facilitate it. By the cooperating with SMT assembly innovators, Industry 4.0 trend will significantly benefit from standards that the participating vendors can follow.

Sharing the same values and goals of Fuji’s standard, TRI will join other industry pioneers such as Panasonic, Yamaha and CKD Corporation. TRI follows the same principles of manufacturability consideration design (DFM) and environmentally-friendly design (DFE) by providing high-quality assurance inspection to the SMT assembly industry.
