„Turn Vision into Reality“

Rehm presents innovations at SMT Hybrid Packaging in Nuremberg

SMT Hybrid Packaging is one of Europe’s leading events for system integration in microelectronics and is the leading trade fair in the electronics industry. In 2017, almost 15,000 visitors could learn about new, innovative products from the world of electronics manufacturing. To this end, 420 national and international exhibitors provided a broad platform. This time, the focus was on a “smart factory” featuring the topics of digitisation, networking, big data and industry 4.0. The Rehm team reflects on this positive experience and would like to thank all customers and partners for the three successful trade fair days!
Fit for the production of the future with Rehm Equipment
Rehm Thermal Systems showcased its services on a 280 m2 area at a newly conceived and redesigned trade fair stand. The fresh colours, clearly structured design and the use of contrasts especially sparked visitors’ curiosity. Modern elements in wood and concrete look symbolised Rehm’s sense of tradition and, at the same time, the innovative mission statement of the company and its technological edge. The new booth was not the only highlight. Of course, the focus yet again this year lay on thermal systems, where Rehm presented some innovations, including new series and user-friendly software.

New system technology for soldering and testing electronic components
VisionXC and VisionXP+ with vacuum option for reliable and void-free reflow convection soldering once again aroused great interest among visitors. Rehm took the opportunity to present numerous enhancements for the VisionXP+ at the SMT, including the benefits of the new EC fan motors that are more sustainable and allow extensive operating data acquisition, a more powerful cooling element and improved design. The new CondensoXC systems also stood in focus – a compact condensation soldering system for small batch sizes – Securo for reliable cold or hot function tests and Nexus as a completely new series for soldering with contact heat and vacuum for use in the production of high-performance electronics. 

Safe protection for sensitive electronics and live coating
The subject of protective lacquer coating also plays an increasingly important role in electronics production. Rehm presented two new systems for selective conformal coating. One is ProtectoXP in a special longboard version, with which circuit boards up to 1.50 m can be coated easily and quickly with up to four applicators. Rehm also developed the VarioFlex curtain nozzle for high-speed and precision application. In addition to the conformal coating range, Protecto from Rehm offers many new options – for example, the application of 2K materials as well as applications for compacting, casting or heat dissipation. Visitors were able to see the flexibility of the system in a live coating demonstration right there at the booth. Customers who want to enter the area of protective lacquer coating with low investment costs and limited throughput found the new ProtectoXC especially interesting. The system combines precise coating with the focus on the essentials: perfect protection for electronics!

“ViCONnect You!” – with smart software for more efficiency
Digitisation, networking and big data are megatrends in the electronics industry. Rehm developed the new ViCON software with touch user-interface to respond to these trends – an innovative solution for easy operation of the VisionX series. The software supports the user in production control, profiling, product management, data recording and monitoring. It is also possible to monitor and control all the machinery within the company network – covering all locations – with the “ViCON Connect” tool. In addition, this tool offers the possibility to prepare production orders at your “remote” workplace, thus ensuring efficient production. Customers can also access the parameters and the system status via smartphone using the new “ViCON app”, which means that production is always in view.

We look forward to your visit at one of our next events!
