Connectivity Using CFX and Hermes

The CFX communication standard enables the secure collection of production data and inspection results. All this can be integrated effortlessly with MES or traceability systems. At the same time, the Hermes standard eliminates SMEMA connectors, external barcode scanners, and other complexities associated with line automation. Together, these standards provide advanced closed-loop communications that can perform complex tasks and simplify implementation.

Advanced Process Control & Inspection

Inspection machines can successfully measure stencil printing, component mounting, and solder reflow performance; yet, there are limitations–especially when closed-loop communication is missing. Equipment suppliers must cooperate to achieve communication for a zero-defect future by creating M2M connections that can optimize the process by exchanging real-time SPI and AOI measurement data with other machines in the production line.
