SIM, a company based in Lublin, has announced an increase in SMT production capacity thanks to its investment in a new production line including a YAMAHA YCP10 solder paste printer, YAMAHA YSM10 pick & place machine, and TWS1385 EVO reflow oven. In order to fully utilize the available production space, a REECO transport system was used, which allows
for non-standard L-shaped placement of the line.
Operating continuously since 1992, SIM Sp. z o.o. is an independent Polish technology company specializing in the design and production of solutions integrating the latest electronic and IT technologies. Full flexibility in the design of both hardware and software have earned the company the trust of entities in many sectors.
In recent years, it has become clear to us that our existing assembly capacity is insufficient for our company’s growth prospects. In 2020, despite the ongoing pandemic, we had a very strong performance in terms of contracts won and all indications are that these trends will only continue to strengthen. This showed us that it became necessary for us to equip our company with another – new production line. However, right at the start of the project we realised that our available production space would not be able to accommodate all of the equipment in a standard setting. However, in cooperation with our long-term business partner, the RENEX Group, we managed to find a solution. A complete production line based on top-class YAMAHA equipment and a reflow oven was somehow bridged with REECO angle conveyors to fit perfectly into the available space. This allowed us to increase the efficiency of the company by a whole line without the need for reconstruction or relocation. – commented Mr. Przemysław Podstawka – Director of the Production and Service Division of SIM Company of Engineers.
The YAMAHA YSM10 device used in SIM Company’s new line has been designed to guarantee the highest efficiency and precision under intensive operating conditions. It has a throughput capacity of up to 46,000 components per hour and a precision of ± 0.035 mm. Assembly can be performed on board sizes as big as 510×460 mm.
The machine is equipped as standard with a tape cutter at the front and back, which significantly helps in maintaining order and waste disposal. It is also possible to expand its functionality to include co-planarity verification, automatic settings recording, manual tray feeding system, multi-camera or UPS system.
