In the semiconductor industry, cleanliness and precision are absolutely critical. Swiss vacuum specialist VAT therefore partnered up with maxon to develop a drive system for wafer processing.
Sometimes the most difficult thing about AI is simply knowing where to start. Identifying potentially impactful use cases is one of the most cited roadblocks for organizations seeking to leverage AI in their business.
Ensuring seamless laser weld quality control and manufacturing traceability, the monitors catch weld errors as they occur in real time, instead of reacting to defects downstream. This ultimately increases yield, improves quality, saves labor, and increases savings.
Companies will need to quickly find ways to sustain their business, mitigate all supply chain risks, and be more flexible to the new environment. These requirements will drive a need for greater visibility and control over operations.
Increasing global competition and an awareness of the need to pivot away from on-site commissioning to safer and more cost-effective virtual methods are the main drivers behind a growing interest in industrial analytical simulation.
By continually monitoring the condition of your equipment's most critical mechanical and electrical components, failures can be avoided with predictive maintenance carried out during scheduled downtimes, resulting in continual operations.
The adoption of automated systems should be based on a clearheaded commercial and technical analysis to strike the right balance between speed, cost, quality and value.
Now, with concerns over China's handling of the virus, rising labor costs across the developing world and apprehension about geographically concentrated supply chains, companies are placing bets on the next hotspot for affordable manufacturing services.
Industry 4.0 has been a hot topic at maxon since the drive specialist introduced configurable drives. Now we're continuing to drive digitization - but not at all costs.
