Cooperation Eurotec and ASM
Eurotec and ASM cooperate in AMR-supported material logistics and automated setup changeover technology by integrating Eurotec’s Lowpad AMRs into ASM’s software solutions like the ASM Material Manager and ASM Command Center.
To be able to offer electronics manufacturers robot-supported solutions for material logistics and setup changeovers, technology leader ASM is integrating Eurotec's Lowpad AMR into its ASM integrated smart factory solutions. This makes it possible for electronics manufacturers all over the world to use Eurotec Lowpads to switch out feeder tables at SIPLACE placement machines and have material transported to the lines automatically with no manual assists.
ASM SMT Solutions is one of the world's largest SMT solutions providers to the electronics manufacturing industry and the leader in the development of the integrated smart SMT factory. To automate setup changeovers and material replenishment processes intelligently and flexibly, ASM is increasingly banking on mobile and autonomous robots.
Eurotec, a member of Eurogroep, is the driving force behind the Lowpad, a one-of-a-kind autonomous mobile robot that optimizes internal logistics and distribution processes in a wide range of companies.
By integrating Lowpads into its factory solutions software, ASM makes it possible to deploy the AMRs in integrated material flow solutions. This will enable Lowpads to transport component reels and other materials to the lines simultaneously with the production process, switch out changeover tables at submillimeter level accuracy at SIPLACE placement machines and handle waste disposal tasks as part of ASM's automated waste removal system.
The Lowpad can be operated without the need to adjust the infrastructure of a manufacturing environment. It can be integrated seamlessly into the customer’s ERP, MES or workflow systems and works safely with people due to its certified safety scanners.
ASM and Eurotec join forces with the aim to provide SMT manufacturers an even more advanced solution for their SMT manufacturing processes.
Visit the Lowpad showcase on the booth of ASM (booth A3.377) during Productronica from Tuesday till Friday.
