Seica, Inc., the North American subsidiary of Seica S.p.A., will be exhibiting at the SMTA International, Live Virtual Exposition to be held on September 28 – 30, 2020. This will be a virtual event managed by https://smta.org/mpage/smtai. Attendees can register at this event at the URL listed above and navigate to the Seica, Inc. booth where they will be able to interact with our dedicated team of sales personnel and application engineers.

The “standard one of a kind” concept, made possible by the maximum versatility and configurability of all of the Next Series, allows Seica the possibility to offer solutions for different industrial automation scenarios such as in; Robotic process automation or in Distributed test.

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a growing trend in electronic board manufacturing, and the Compact RT, a dual-fixture rotary table that is designed to provide maximum productivity, optimized test throughput, and its minimal, modular design provides maximum versatility for deployment in different automated handling environments (robot/cobot) and layouts. Configurable for in-circuit, pre-functional, functional and combinational testing as well as on-board programming, this solution has the modularity needed to provide tailor-made test performance for the specific requirement with all of the advantages of a standard platform.

Distributed test in an automated line is an approach that allows to reduce time and optimize system performance and accuracy. Seica solutions includes Seica Automation handlers linking, for example, Seica Pilot V8 Next flying probe tester and Compact SL. The Compact SL being an ‘in line’ version or the Compact RT.

The Pilot V8 is the most extensive flying probe test platform on the market, with up to 20 mobile resources. The standard test probes can each apply up to a current of 2A and the system can be configured with high-resolution cameras for automatic optical inspection, barcode and data matrix reading, laser sensors, capacitive probes, pyrometers, optical fiber sensors for LEDs, mini-fixtures for boundary scan and On Board Programming. Shown in its fully-automated version, compatible with any standard assembly line, the Pilot V8 Next is engineered for medium/high volume production, and can be configured to satisfy the full range of different board test requirements. Other available features include the HR option, which extends the performance to probing of extremely miniaturized devices (down to 30 µm), and the HF option with high-frequency probes, able to measure signals at frequencies over 1.5 GHz. The Pilot V8 XL version expands the standard work area of 610 x 540 mm to 800 x 650 mm, to accommodate and test “extra-large” boards.

The Compact SL is fully automated and, like all of the Seica Next Series Compact line, it is completely configurable for in-circuit, pre-functional, functional and combinational testing, as well as on-board programming. The system architecture conforms to the World Class Manufacturing standard, and is the practical demonstration of how the Seica Compact line integrates the concepts of lean production, maintaining a small footprint without sacrificing performance.

Koh Young’s Ray Welch and Brent Fischthal detail how engineers can work with SPI tools to verify how small they can go in component size with their solder paste application, and how the company’s SPI equipment is helping not only to verify but also to help drive the development collaboration between solder paste and stencil printer manufacturers, and inspection tools and software.

Automation War Stories From ICM Controls

04/22/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Members of the I-Connect007 editorial team met with Andy Kadah, president of ICM Controls, and Kevin Jobsky, senior marketing manager, via teleconference on March 20, 2020. Originally, the purpose of our conversation was to discuss factory automation implementation details. Yet, we conducted the interview in the midst of a rapid-fire and wide-ranging onslaught of executive orders from the federal level on down to the local level meant to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
