MTEK Launches MCell Insertion


Reading time ( words)

As a leading provider of Smart Factory Solution, MTEK announces the general release of their MCell Insertion, a flexible, adaptive, software-defined robotic solution for inserting electronic components that delivers measurable cost saving. 

In installations with some of the world’s top EMS and OEM companies, MCell has reduced labor costs by more than 70% even in low cost regions, delivering fast return on investment (ROI). This reduction in labor cost will allow companies to maintain competitive cost levels even when production is reshored to higher cost geographies.

Now out of stealth mode, MTEK is changing the Smart Factory conversation by delivering digital building blocks that provide rapid deployment and deliver a digital dividend in terms of improved performance and efficiency. MTEK CEO Mattias Andersson explains, “Our objective is to simplify the route to the Smart Factory by creating digital building blocks that can be quickly deployed and that deliver real ROI”, adding “this first MCell module offers excellent value right out of the box, resolves a specific manufacturing challenge, and requires no programming.”

MCell Insertion uses ABB YuMi® collaborative robots, ultra-low costs feeders, zero touch programming and can be installed and deployed remotely, ideal in this time of social distancing and isolation. The result is higher quality and greater consistency, lower cost per insertion and faster changeover from product to product. 

MCell uses MBrain, part of MTEK’s Factory Intelligence System, to deliver zero touch programming as well as unrivalled performance data. You can learn more about MCell Insertion on the MTEK website.

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to… Smart Data, Chapter 2

04/21/2021 | Sagi Reuven and Zac Elliott, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.
