Setup software | YAMAHA S-tool
The S-Tool SMT software verifies setup and keep track on components for the job in question e.g. component stock and if a component reached it's expiry date.
The remaining components counter monitors the remaining SMD components for the job your are working on - all this while your line is running.
What is left?
Remaining components counter
Counts remaining number of components on the reels
Requests resupply of components before the P&P runs out
While the assembly line is running the 'Parts remain counter' is keeping track of how many components are left on the reels and lets you know when a resupply of components is needed before the mounter runs out.
Up to date
Prevent usage of expired SMD
S-Tool checks for SMD inventory information during setup e.g. MSD remain time and solderability.
The inventory information is then taken into account to prevent the usage of e.g. expired components.
By using S-Tool you will get warnings to prevent you from using expired components in your production this makes it a very useful SMD software.
SMT feeder setup
Verification and optimizing
By using advanced software combined with barcode technology you are able to setup feeders in FES carts for a new job with the setup station, fast and with no reel position errors. You are able to verify your setup both on and off the pick & place machine.
S-Tool creates possibilities for optimizing setup's with a flexible feeder setup that opens up for group / cluster setup strategy.
Meaning the same reel setup can be used for multiple jobs where the same components are in use. Saving you a lot of setup time.
Setup of components - a part of the intelligent SMD supply to the P&P machines
Get a short presentation of the intelligent YAMAHA SMT workflow that supply materials to the pick & place machines - naturally the Setup software tool; YAMAHA S-tool is included in this workflow.
The S-tool software
YAMAHA setup software
The picture illustrates the 4 YAMAHA software packages, the Setup tool, S-Tool, works in combination with the programming tool. As the setup is naturally extension of the programming.
Note that the S-Tool software works as a IT server solution.
No assembly line is the same - this also means that not all companies need the same assembly line software.
