Universal Features Smart Factory Solutions at APEX

Integrated end-to-end factory solutions drive operational excellence.

January 27, 2020 – Universal Instruments will highlight its IQ360™ Factory Software Suite on booth 1837 at the 2020 IPC APEX EXPO, held at the San Diego Convention Center on February 4–6. On the booth, Universal will demonstrate IQ360s ability to drive continuous improvement through machine-to-machine connectivity and dynamic closed-loop process control based on AI algorithms developed by Universal’s Advanced Process Lab (APL). IQ360 provides real-time visibility into key performance metrics, as well as trend analysis for root cause correction. The company’s extra-capacity FuzionXC2-37™ Platform, FuzionOF™ high-speed odd-form platform and Uflex modular automation platform will also be on the booth.

With the industry’s highest feeder capacity, FuzionXC2-37 is the ultimate single-machine solution for high-mix, low/medium-volume SMT requirements. While the Fuzion platform family is designed to maximize OEE, the FuzionXC2-37 also features world-class NPI capabilities while delivering three times the output of other single-machine solutions.

“Our FuzionXC Platform has become the standard for manufacturers from academia and small-tier EMS providers to some of the world’s most recognized industry leaders in Military/Aerospace, 5G Server and Industrial markets,” stated Universal Instruments Vice President of Marketing, Glenn Farris.

The IQ360 Software Suite is a full complement of smart factory modules designed to control, monitor and improve all aspects of factory operations for maximum productivity. Comprised of Design & NPI, Material Management, Production Control, and Monitoring & Analytics modules, IQ360 offers individual capability bundles that meet specific factory requirements, providing a true “connected factory” production environment.

“Our APL’s innovative AI process algorithms have stood the test of time, as they were developed more than ten years ago and have evolved to empower today’s most complex processes,” said Farris. “Industry 4.0 and big data are of no use without practical application of that information. Our machine learning is the foundation of continuous improvement and autonomous manufacturing.”
