    Europlacer has signed a global partnership agreement with Siemens, provider of the industry’s leading electronics manufacturing software solutions, to integrate Valor Process Preparation software into its Surface Mount assembly platforms and products worldwide.

    The integration of Valor Process Preparation software boosts manufacturing productivity by offering a seamless transition from design to programming of all equipment in the SMT assembly line. The software supports a wide range of assembly machines and product types, allowing Europlacer customers to streamline programming along the length of the line from a variety of data sources and formats, including Gerber, ODB++, IPC2581 and other popular protocols.

    Companies like EMS providers and Contract Electronic Manufacturers operating in high-mix environments will leverage the automation, simplification and time savings offered by the Valor software and benefit from true commercial value. It elevates the NPI process to a completely new level.

    “Our customers can take any design file and automatically create the programming not only for the Europlacer pick & place machine and screen printer but for all other products in a full SMT line,” explains François Erceau, Group Strategic Direction and Marketing Officer at Europlacer. “Integrating the Valor software further extends our capability to deliver comprehensive full-line solutions globally,” he adds.

    “I am excited about this new partnership with the Europlacer Group,” says Jeremy Schitter, Product Line Director at Siemens Digital Industry Software. “Common customers worldwide will benefit from the industry-leading PCB assembly digitalization platform to accelerate the NPI process. The Digital Twin methodology is a must for every customer operating in high-mix environments and looking to enable right-first-time programming to significantly improve their shopfloor operations”, he adds.
