DYCONEX automates production processes with robots

DYCONEX AG, an MST company and a leading supplier of ultra-complex printed circuit board solutions, increases productivity in production through targeted use of robot handling systems for loading and unloading laser machines.

Deployment of robot handling systems is one of various activities through which DYCONEX automates its in-house production processes. By the end of the year, three specialized robots will relieve laser machine operators of repetitive tasks. The handling systems enable continuous production by operating both during shift hours and overnight without personnel present. “Increased output and greater flexibility in production processes clearly show us that this form of automation is a step in the right direction,” underlines Stephan Messerli, VP Operations at DYCONEX.

DYCONEX has chosen a custom solution for its robots. Since the laser machines are used for both via drilling and routing, it was necessary to design additional elements that were developed in-house due to the complexity of the processes. “Considering our very specialized requirements, we commissioned external partners to work alongside our own engineering team and jointly implement the project from conception to operation,” explains Adrian Balz, Manager Process Module Via Generation & Plating at DYCONEX.
