A Korean SME which specializes in designing and manufacturing factory automation (FA) systems has developed a FA system for PCB manufacturing. It makes and provides PCB manufacturing lines to major automobile manufacturers in Korea. This FA technology brings low cost by minimizing the time spent and the number of workers. Also, it maximizes corporate profit by optimizing process redesign. The company is seeking a partner for a joint venture or commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Since its foundation in 1991, the company has struggled to provide FA manufacturing lines in better condition. The knowledge obtained for more than 20 years enables technical support to hardware and software in order to respond customers’ needs and it is the power to have remarkable technology development for a reduction in the size of the workforce.
In PCB business, the company especially has applied the FA technologies to convert old-fashioned hand work process to the full-automated process. Currently, the company is making and providing PCB manufacturing lines to the major automobile manufacturers in Korea.
The existing type of a PCB manufacturing line is difficult to manage the quality of the products and requires more workers. However, this innovative technology that the company has developed can provide full automated PCB assembly and test lines which enhance production efficiency.
Its PCB routing machine is very easy to control and manage. Moreover, it does not require any workers.
PCB is usually divided into some pieces and loaded by robot automatically.
The existing soldering line is usually manual or semi-auto so that every stage needs at least one worker who operates the soldering unit.
However, this in-line auto soldering and assembly line operate by the control program made by a worker. So, a PCB will pass through 4 stages, which are pre-heating, soldering, Auto Optical Inspection (AOI) test and assembly line without any workers.
The company’s aging tester is also much more innovative than the existing one. The old type of aging test requires a lot of processes and is hard to get the standardized quality of the product because every process should be done by a worker. The company has improved this aging tester to be an in-line type and fully automated. Therefore, the quality management can be done without any workers.
The existing type of PCB manufacturing lines depends on the labor power because the whole system is made with cell type of individual processes that require many workers. Its full-automated PCB assembly and the test line can offer a very reasonable and efficient manufacturing line. The minimization of required workers and high standardized quality control enable the manufacturers to optimize the production line.
The company can provide technical consultancy regarding current process line, designing a new FA process and making manufacturing line. PCB manufacturers are its interest for a joint venture or a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
