Router Solutions GmbH to celebrate its 15-year Anniversary at Productronica
Built around the industry-leading CAMCAD product line and enhanced by its own in-house developed products, the Router Solutions line gives both OEM and CEM manufacturers the ideal route for getting PCB designs ready for manufacturing in the shortest possible time with the least amount of errors.
Router Solutions’ design-to-manufacture process starts with the import of design data from a wide variety of formats. BOM information can come from external files or via a direct link to ERP systems such as SAP, Baan, Navision and others. The resulting complete data set is stored as a single file (.CCZ) upon which all subsequent steps in the manufacturing process are based.
A DFT/DFM module performs detailed analysis of testability rules, assembly spacing rules and solder joint quality, performs probe placement and optimizes test planning. After creating the stencil using CAMCAD’s Stencil Generator, the enhanced, analyzed data set can then be output to a wide variety of assembly and AOI machines. The outputted files are “machine ready”, with little or no further manipulation necessary.
A highlight at this year´s
Productronica is the new release of CAMDOCS 2.0. CAMDOCS allow users to document the entire manufacturing process. Based around the Microsoft Word engine and incorporating all the intelligence of the .CCZ data set, CAMDOCS greatly automates the time-consuming task of creating work instructions by generating color-code drawings and integrating text, pictures, tables and other drawing objects. CAMDOCS users can produce ISO-quality drawings in a fraction of the time.
Further ISO compliance is assured via a tracking function for approvals, releases and revisions. The final result can be printed out on paper or released in electronic form and viewed on the assembly line via the CAMDOCS Book Viewer.
Kevin Decker-Weiss, Managing Director of Router Solutions GmbH: “Since our establishment in September 1992 we’ve witnessed the explosive growth in the electronics industry at close hand. Facing ever greater manufacturing challenges and shorter lead times, our customers turn to us to provide solutions and service they can rely on. Our steady growth as a company is a direct result of the success our customers have had in improving their design-to-manufacturing flows and lowering production costs. We intend to keep helping them do so for the next 15 years and beyond.”
