ITW EAE Announces New SECS/GEM Communication Package for MPM Edison Stencil Printer

Reading time ( words)

ITW EAE announces a new SECS/GEM communication package for the MPM® Edison™ Printer. SECS/GEM is a semiconductor market communication standard that provides a common interface between manufacturing equipment. The Edison package collects and logs process data which can be used to optimize the production line. 

The MPM® Edison™ is the most accurate printer in the market with advanced technology needed for ultra-fine pitch and micro aperture printing processes. This makes it ideally suited for advanced semiconductor stencil printing applications. The MPM® Edison™ has a proven print process capability greater than 2 Cpk for 0201 metric components. With a built-in ±8 micron machine alignment, and ±15 micron wet print accuracy (≥2 Cpk @ 6 sigma, Edison's wet print accuracy is 25% better than the next best printers.

MPM® Edison™ has a transfer efficiency that exceeds requirements for the smallest apertures. A single high precision load-cell with closed-loop pressure control and motor driven system enable precise and consistent squeegee force control across the entire print stroke in both directions, which helps improve yields. Innovative machine design achieves ultra-tight coplanarity between stencil and substrate enabling yield improvement for ultra-thin stencil printing.

“This new SECS/GEM package will provide a ready-made interface for our semiconductor customers,” said Wayne Wang, MPM Business Manager. “MPM printers also feature ‘OpenApps’, an open application interface with a development kit that allows customers to develop custom interfaces in support of Industry 4.0 initiatives.”

Nolan Johnson recently spoke with Tuan Tran, director of customer solutions at Green Circuits, about what makes a successful process engineer. They also discuss a typical day in the life of a process engineer—from pre-manufacturing through post-DFM, for process improvement. As Tuan points out, there are a variety of paths to becoming a great process engineer.

This Month in SMT007 Magazine—Continuous Improvement: As Simple as X = Xc – 1

01/04/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
X=Xc – 1 is a conceptual equation for continuous improvement. You define X and work to reduce it by a factor of 1. This could be one work hour, one process step, one day less in a cycle, and so on. We recently met with Dr. Ron Lasky to discuss the concept of X=Xc – 1 and get his advice on generating enthusiasm among readers and the next generation about continuous improvement. As this discussion illustrates, many process improvements are small in scale, not yearlong, major efforts.
