Factory in a box

18 July 2018 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Mycronic has joined a Nokia-led group of 12 electronics industry players to offer a plug-and-play ‘Factory in a Box’ mobile solution for next-generation electronics assembly. The fully automated in-line solution, which fits in a portable cargo container, includes the Mycronic MY700 jet printing and dispensing platform, among other equipment. It can be packed, transported and brought back into service in a matter of hours.

Target applications include but are not limited to extra capacity in peak periods, prototyping around new product introductions or shutdowns due to natural disasters. The collaboration was driven by the expected changes in manufacturing sparked by Industry 4.0, including cloud-based solutions, robotics and new electronics manufacturing Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

According to Clemens Jargon, VP global dispensing, Mycronic’s MY700JX offers a dual advantage: “since it is equipped with dual lanes and dual heads, it allows manufacturers to handle any solder paste or assembly fluid deposit with absolute precision and unmatched speed. The compact unit thus combines solder paste jet printing with jet dispensing of adhesives, UV materials, epoxies and more – with micrometre precision and at speeds of more than one million dots per hour.” Nokia says it was also attracted to the unit’s robust yet compact design, which fits well into the confines of the mobile cargo container.
