SolderStar Joins Industry Experts at Seminar to Address Profiling Techniques


Reading time ( words)

“The seminar gave SolderStar the opportunity to discuss the process and help attendees understand how and why they can manage their current processes.”

Following the seminar, visitors were given a factory tour where live examples could be viewed including SolderStar’s pioneering Automatic Profiling System (APS), a full time system for profiling each and every PCB soldered in a convection reflow oven.

Currently being used on an Ersa reflow oven at the technology centre, APS allows 100% traceability, the message that SolderStar were drilling down on in the seminar. The newest addition to the portfolio, SMARTLine, was also discussed as part of the importance for profiling.

About SMARTLine

SMARTLine, an innovative’ big data’ capture system, utilises internet based technologies to capture information from reflow ovens for Industry 4.0 projects and trials. Manufacturing is driving towards a SMART factory process to encourage productivity, profitability and flexibility. SMARTLine works as part of the Industry 4.0 ideal where information can be captured across the whole manufacturing process, making condition monitoring and fault diagnosis easily detected. The longer term goal of self-predicting algorithms can also be used to foresee problems before they occur. This provides a company with the ability to understand and have more of an insight into its manufacturing status.

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.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
