Choose your batch sizes freely
In traditional production, larger batches are allowed to tie up the production line for extended periods of time, simply because changing over is so time-consuming. With a FlowLine system, batch sizes can be chosen according to what is optimal for down-stream operations such as test and box build, since there is no penalty for changing over the line.
Automation all the way
The FlowLine system totally eliminates operator intervention when changing over the line from one product to another. All information needed to configure the line is stored in a work order database, including a unique barcode that identifies the corresponding PCB magazine. When the magazine is presented to the line, configuration orders are sent out to each piece of equipment in the line, and production starts automatically.
