Whether you are dealing with airplanes, trucks or SMT placement machines – good maintenance preserves value and directly affects your quality, productivity and the bottom line. To explain how maintenance processes for SMT lines can be optimized, managed and easily integrated into the production flow, the SIPLACE team recently published an informative brochure for electronics manufacturers. “SIPLACE-Insights: Maintenance” explains how the maintenance intervals for placement machines and their subsystems can be organized with great flexibility and based on the respective factory’s capacity utilization. It also explains the available concepts, tools and services and covers less well-known topics such as certifications and how they can be used to improve customer loyalty. And for those who believe that maintenance is nothing but a necessary evil, a case study quantifies the impact of optimized maintenance on line productivity and quality, i.e. the concrete “return on maintenance”. Interested electronics producers can order “SMT-Insights: Maintenance” and other brochures from the SIPLACE SMT-Insights series at no charge.
