Speedline Launches MPM PrinTrack Traceability and Verification

Reading time ( words)

Speedline Technologies announces the launch of MPM PrinTrack, a new ‘open architecture’ traceability and verification system with expansion possibilities for the user well beyond the printer.  

MPM PrinTrack begins by adding new functionality and traceability to the solder paste printing process.  With PrinTrack, the user always has an easily-accessible, comprehensive history detailing how each product was printed, when it was made, the process parameters used to print it, and all pertinent information that can be used to track products or troubleshoot the process if needed. A flexible Web reporting interface can be user-configured to produce traceability reports.

PrinTrack focuses on printing process parameters, solder paste and tooling, but can seamlessly integrate with other equipment and elements in the manufacturing cycle. PrinTrack harvests data from the printer, including assembly part number, work order number, panel ID and other barcode information. Traceability data across several printers is consolidated into one database residing on a server. Reports generated include a product history report, a list of panel IDs, circuit IDs, work order IDs, and more.

PrinTrack’s comprehensive product traceability is developed in partnership with globally-recognized leader Cogiscan.  Cogiscan enables communication with other equipment in the line to support seamless integration, a standard method of connecting to MES and ERP systems, and is expandable to factory-wide Track, Trace, and Control. PrinTrack is powered by the Speedline Open Apps Interface (OAI). OAI provides the operator with detailed machine state and process information including gate product entry and exit from machine; it empowers the operator to control process changeover; it also provides process verification and validation, and can communicate with the operator at the machine in real time. Open Apps is a portal to the emerging Industry 4.0 ‘Smart Factory’ vision and its advanced communications, functionality, and concepts in the value chain organization.

What’s Driving AOI Innovation and Collaboration?

03/25/2020 | Brent Fischthal, Koh Young America
When we look at the optical inspection market growth trajectory, we can see how process challenges helped create innovations. For example, solder paste inspection (SPI) has undergone a shift from 2D to 3D because the 2D inspection technologies manufacturers traditionally used to collect solder deposit images could not solve shadowing problems. Thus, companies developed 3D SPI to capture the printed solder paste height to accurately measure the total volume of paste printed. Several years later, we see the same need for surface-mounted component inspection with AOI systems.

Trends From the Show: Solder and Software

03/18/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
In my role as a media representative, my perspective on IPC APEX EXPO may be a bit different from that of many attendees. Since the I-Connect007 team had the opportunity to talk to many attendees and exhibitors and listen to their stories over the course of the week, our view can be particularly wide. When I reflected on all the conversations, pieces from all throughout the week coalesced and provided a different understanding of and takeaway from the show.
