As the sea change to a SMART manufacturing ideal escalates, and with the development of next generation capital equipment already underway, Altus Group is preparing for this progression with its choice of suppliers all of which are at the cutting edge of technology.

One company that is fully embracing Industry 4.0 is Altus’ pre-eminent supplier, Rehm Thermal Systems with the introduction of ViCI (Virtual Communication Interface) a portal for maintenance support in modern electronics production.

As leading innovators in plant engineering, Rehm is addressing the issue of Industry 4.0. with innovative concepts which support worldwide Augmented Reality to make maintenance, documentation and on-the-job-training easier. These new systems will help to reduce travel costs, increase worldwide availability and shorten response times.

Joe Booth, sales manager at Altus said: “All of our suppliers are stepping up to the plate when it comes to pioneering Industry 4.0 innovation. Products like Rehm Thermal Systems’ ViCI is ground-breaking and will help to change the production process for the better.

“The innovative portal solution offers concrete support with the help of smart glasses, guided maintenance scenarios on tablet or smartphone as well as a comprehensive and expandable knowledge base. Since it was first introduced at SMT Hybrid & Packaging show in Germany earlier this year,  Altus has received many enquiries from customers interested in  ViCI. Rehm’s new portal will help to reduce machine downtime and costly service visits and so ensuring maximum system availability at all times – this of course is a very attractive concept.”

The ViCI is currently being tested and developed in collaboration with pilot customers, and once available worldwide will be offered by Altus.
