EKRA Stencil Printing Systems – Autonomy in Series
With the EKRA printing specialists the production of the future is already reality. The SERIO printing systems run completely autonomously for up to eight hours. EKRA paved the way to the smart machine right from the start. The SERIO systems have already been on the market for six years and have been approved thanks to numerous smart features. The printers enable a product change in less than two minutes, the NPI is done in less than ten minutes without Gerber data. Different print formats up to 610 x 510mm can be processed while maintaining the same cycle times.
With the SERIO printing systems, the ASYS Group has always focused on highest precision and flexibility. A characteristic of the printers is the dynamic scalability. It is possible to integrate any options and features in order to adapt the systems individually and according to your needs. EKRA meets the requirements of an autonomous machine, which are currently more and more in focus, with the SERIO printers.
In view of the increasing challenges in the shop floor EKRA is working on extending the autonomy of its systems. The aim is to decouple the set-up processes from the operator to a large extent. The machines should be able to carry out job changes almost independently without requiring significant manpower and time of an operator. The machine simply calls the operator to the right place at the right time, for example by connecting to the PULSE system. This is an essential step on the way to an autonomous, smart factory. At the ASYS Technology Days, the new printing system of the Generation Smart will be presented.
- Time Saving: Reduced training effort, effective use of personnel and smooth production processes, avoidance of errors
- Traceability: Reduced setup times und increased usability, traceability and reduced operator intervention
- Autonomy: Gradual expansion with smart options enables automated processes
