Cogiscan, the leading provider of Track, Trace and Control (TTC) & IIoT solutions for the electronics manufacturing industry, is excited to announce an expansion of its existing strategic partnership with ASM Assembly Systems to include new machine connectivity solutions to support Industry 4.0 initiatives. ASM’s world-class equipment for printing, SPI and placement coupled with its leading software solutions for operator pooling and SMT process optimization will be enhanced by the addition of Cogiscan’s Co-NECT data collection platform for integration with enterprise software systems.
This collaboration will extend ASM’s system integration capabilities by providing out-of-the-box software interfaces using the IPC CFX protocol for machine communication. Customers who require this protocol as part of their factory digitalization efforts will benefit by having plug-and-play adapters for quickly integrating their ASM equipment with their MES or other systems.
“We’ve been fortunate to have had a strong and successful partnership with ASM for many years now,” says Mitch DeCaire, Director of Business Development at Cogiscan. “We are delighted to be able to build on that mutual success and extend our partnership even further to help ASM deliver more value for their customers."
“We are very happy to further our partnership with Cogiscan,” says Dr. Thomas Marktscheffel, Director SW-Integration Platform at ASM. “With factory digitalization becoming a must for electronics manufacturers, we believe the addition of Cogiscan’s system integration solution for the emerging CFX standard will enhance our offering around Smart Factory solutions.”
