FUJI Smart Factory with NEXIM

As products become more varied, the shift toward variable-mix variable-volume production is accelerating. Changes to bewildering production schedules and frequent machine changes lead to defective products and missed deadlines, and several other difficult problems are arising such as increasing inventories of materials, parts, and products. Nexim is a production system that integrates the functions of the production cycle (Plan, Do, See) for reliable planning support and changeover support, flexible data management, and maintaining high operation rates and quality.

With NEXIM you can plan ahead independently of THT or SMD technology. Monitor and influence every aspect of the production cycle. With NEXIM, you can use an advanced network that represents a true smart factory. So you have the opportunity to plan your Monitor production implementation and continuously optimize it with an appealing user interface in order to effectively use their advanced SMT lines.

  • System-based production
    Creating program data is very easy with Nexim and production schedules can be created automatically. Nexim issues instructions for checking out parts and performing changeover based on these created schedules, as well as instructions for part resupply based on the machine operating conditions. In Nexim, production processes are connected through the system to control production, making FUJI Smart Factory a reality.
  • Predictive maintenance
    By communicating not only with Fuji’s printers and placement machines, but also with inspection machines and reflow machines from other suppliers, Nexim can manage integrated information for the entire lines. This allows you to analyze information from inspection machines and placement machines to inform when to perform predictive maintenance.
  • Learn fast, act quickly
    It is very important to learn about problems occurring at production lines and react quickly in order to keep quality and productivity high. With Nexim, you can check the production status even when not at the production site by using mobile devices. When thresholds for delays in production and productivity are set in Nexim and if these thresholds are exceeded, this information can be sent to an email address to notify the operator about the issue. Thereby, you are equipped with the information you need quickly.
  • Manage maintenance by linking the units with the host system
    The benefits of automating maintenance operations are not limited to reducing labor and maintaining stable quality. Nexim automatically monitors and stores the operating history, inspection results as well as the condition of the line to inform operators about the need for maintenance based on all line data. In short, monitoring in Nexim makes it possible to keep the equipment and line in top condition with a minimum of effort.
