Hey all, I've made a post in the past about us expanding to a new space, but I wanted to do a new post with specific questions. We currently have a DEK 265, Phillips Opal Xii, and a Heller 1500. Our main reason for expanding is to have a lead-free

15%? Now I'm curious to see the blog. I know everyone plays games with the numbers to back into something acceptable to management, but 15% seems incredible low, even if you factor out the BS. Hope you find it, my google-fu wasn't good enough.

This thread is not new, but this is a great question- wish we'd seen it sooner. In our experience, manufacturers are only using 10-50% of their machines' capacity. Many on here will agree that it's common for electronics manufacturers to accept low S

In regards to machine utilization of an automated in-line SMT Placement equipment, is there any statistical data that may indicate what a typical line should expect to achieve? What is a reasonable target for a low volume high mix production environm

What software package out there that can manage WIP. We are in the process of consolidating two of our SMT lines into three individual lines for equipment utilization. This will create lots of WIP and need a way to manage it. Any ideals

I can't comment on the quality of any vendors equipment, but your question is really a "process approach" issue. What do you expect to find with that 3rd dimensional measurement? 2D inspection should detect the majority of your printing errors.
