Software to Streamline SMT Assembly Line Process

Feb. 29, 2024
Europlacer inked a deal with Siemens to integrate Valor Process Preparation software into its SMT assembly platforms and products worldwide.

Europlacer signed a global partnership agreement with Siemens to integrate Valor Process Preparation software into its surface-mount assembly platforms. It will create a seamless transition from design to programming of all equipment in the SMT assembly line.

Supporting a wide range of assembly machines and product types, the software upgrade enables the streamlining of programming through the entire line, from a variety of data sources and formats, including Gerber, ODB++, IPC2581, and other communication protocols.

Electronic solution providers and manufacturers working in high-mix environments can leverage the automation, simplification, and time savings offered by the Valor software to elevate the NPI process to a completely new level.

“Our customers can take any design file and automatically create the programming not only for the Europlacer pick & place machine and screen printer, but for all other products in a full SMT line,” explained François Erceau, Group Strategic Direction and Marketing Officer at Europlacer. “Integrating the Valor software further extends our capability to deliver comprehensive full-line solutions globally.” 

“I am excited about this new partnership with the Europlacer Group,” said Jeremy Schitter, Product Line Director at Siemens Digital Industry Software. “Common customers worldwide will benefit from the industry-leading PCB assembly digitalization platform to accelerate the NPI process. The digital-twin methodology is a must for every customer operating in high-mix environments and looking to enable right-first-time programming to significantly improve their shopfloor operations.”
