Rehm Thermal Systems is known for innovative engineering and technology leadership in manufacturing equipment for the electronics and photovoltaics industry. Rehm is now able to expand this pioneering role even further with a clear and innovative portfolio of software solutions. ViCON, the new system software, already combines tried-and-tested Rehm Software tools such as convenient product management and process interlocking with new possibilities in the area of mobile applications in the form of the ViCON App and ViCON Connect – in an appealing design and with intuitive touch operation.
With ViCON, Rehm offers a clear software package for the Vision series that is intuitive to use thanks to its touchscreen interface. All messages, commands and parameters are visible at a glance on the main screen with its machine view. With numerous features, for example, a favourites bar that can be freely added, the structured grouping of parameters or the individual process monitoring and documentation, ViCON offers you optimal support for your manufacturing processes.
The ViCON software provides optimum process control and simple profiling for the Condenso series. Thanks to clearly structured process steps, individual and different parameters can be set for each step, such as injection, extraction, required holding time, timeout or soldering with or without a vacuum. This enables you to achieve the highest possible flexibility with profiling, as well as a high level of process stability.
The new operating concept of the ViCON Protecto simplifies the creation of the coating pattern and is fast, efficient and precise. Various formats can be entered, from a simple image import or creation of an image via the camera to the import of ECAD data. A wizard guides you through the programme parameters in a simple manner and thus prevents possible sources of error. The import of CAD data with height information provides you with a 3D view of the assembly and, using coating suggestions which are created automatically, the user can create their coating pattern in a fast and simple manner. The programme that is created is then validated in a live test. Alternatively, it is convenient to create the programme offline at the workstation.
ViCON Nexus provides flexible options for a very wide range of application areas. Materials that are normally highly dissimilar are fused using different settings and process parameters, which can be combined flexibly. Fast heating and cooling, as well as flux-free operation with up to 100% nitrogen, forming gas (95/5), formic acid or up to 5% hydrogen is possible. As a result of vacuum soldering, productivity increases and quality advantages are achieved in the manufacturing of power electronics.
