Mycronic’s Kevin Clue discusses the new MyPro A40, a pick and place machine that is 48% faster than its predecessor. The A40 maintains the flexibility desired by high-mix, low-volume manufacturers while offering a wider component range, better accuracy and repeatability.
November’s issue of Design007 Magazine had an excellent theme that evolved around design simplification. There were exceptionally good articles about how to reduce over-constrained or needlessly complex designs. One significant time-consuming category is the creation of many design files and drawings which lead to lengthy creation and interpretation time along with the considerable time to resolve conflicting or erroneous information.
Pete Starkey speaks with Frederic Soulier and Damien Boureau from Altix and MGI Digital Technology. The combined expertise of two innovative companies lead to a radically simplified digital solution for solder mask and additive processes in one machine.
