Pick & place (placement) is an automatic machine, however, the machine requires careful calibration and programming in order to function at max capacity. Regardless of whether your business focuses on prototyping, quick turnaround assembly, or volume production, these risks of inefficiency and potential losses are lurking around the corner in your day-to-day operations;
There is no doubt that neither machine software systems nor traditional 3rd party software can solve these challenges due to their limitations.
Vayo solves this systematic industry challenge with patented intelligent technology and applies a new intelligent accelerator approach to the mainstream placement machine platform one by one.
An intelligent accelerator simulates the actions of human beings and intelligently searches the best-matched part shape & package from the machine library. It also saves the cycle time and increases the accuracy of the assignment of part data.
Intelligent accelerator extracts footprint information from PCB CAD, which greatly saves the preparation time of parts outline and pin element.
Lack of synchronization between PCB designer and SMT programmer brings rotation/polarity correction challenges. A small issue on paper can lead to multiplicative complications down the road, with real-world consequences (customer complaints, lost orders, or lost business).
New intelligent accelerator converts a manual approach to an intelligent one, which reduces 95% of the business risk that stems from the wrong polarity, and saves both offline & inline programming cycle time.
VayoPro-SMT Expert can not only support powerful manual imposition functions, but also intelligently generate puzzles from pictures drawn by CAD or Gerber data sources; it can also reduce the cycle time of imposition production from a few hours to one minute.
SMT Expert supports CAD sources like Cadence Allegro/OrCAD, Mentor, PowerPCB, Altium/Protel, Zuken, ODB++, IPC-2581, Accel, and more; it then validates BOM content and performs cross verification with CAD. If there is no CAD source, you can also load centroid XY data with a Gerber data source.
For placement platforms that do not currently have an intelligent accelerator function ready, Vayo has your back with comprehensive support for traditional offline programming approaches.
SMT Expert can automatically generate and feed a loading list and assembly drawing. This method greatly reduces the cycle time of document preparation. Moreover SMT Expert can validate your existing program so as to reduce programmatical errors caused by ECO change, personnel turnover, or other glitches occurring due to incorrect operation.
SMT Expert can perform machine program conversions between Fuji, ASM, Panasonic & Yamaha; it also greatly speeds up the line transfer process for customers who have multiple machine platforms.
The Vayo team keeps improving existing SMT Expert functions and features, and strives to deliver more value to our customers that exceed their expectations.
“I was impressed by Vayo NPI tool, it is really world class solution in the industry!”
Senior Vice President
“We started with Vayo beginning Year 2009 and has not been turning back since then. Vayo’s way of restlessly pursuing their software excellences has impressed most of us.”
Head of Innovation Centre
“From the selection of Vayo solution on the year of 2007, we are able to support these data source whatever we receives what kind of data from new customer, and then quickly complete placement programming.”
CEO, IPC Board Director
“We have been impressed with the product capabilities, their communication and commitment to supporting their products is truly world class.”
“By introducing Vayo’s intelligent software tool it is now possible for operators to perform data conversion requiring little skill, while reducing the work time required to a fifth of what it was.”
“The accelerator function could help us a lot on component placement orientation, we don’t need to do mapping Gerber file and check placement orientation one by one any more.”
GPEO-M PE (SMT programmer)
“From years of experience with DFT and CAD SW’s, VayoPro-Test Expert is the best. It is fast, accurate and easy to use. Its DFT report is very comprehensible for our customers. This is why we choose VayoPro-Test Expert.”
Test Development Manager
“Very intuitive and user-friendly, you can match parts and pds visually and new pd can be created easily. Part Data Editor and Parts Verification ensure every location has correct part, size and orientation. Highly recommended!”
“Communication is important for every filed, good conversation shall bring joyful experience, Vayo is such company we worked with.”
Sr. Manufacturing Engineer
“We did comprehensive evaluation & comparison on industry solutions, and we are amazing to see those bright spots in Vayo solution and the professionalization of Vayo team.”
“Accelerator allowed us to reduce a lot the quantity of mistakes in the projects and the time required for their preparation. This is undoubtedly a useful solution for the companies who value their time.”
“User friendly software, excellent responds upon any query related to DFM Expert and SMT expert also a software that can be tailored to suit our needs.”
