Nutek integrates Hermes standard and is ready for industry 4.0!

A protocol to advance Industry 4.0 in electronics manufacturing
The Hermes Standard, published as well under IPC-HERMES-9852, is a non-proprietary open protocol, based on TCP/IP- and XML. It takes exchange of PCB related data between the different machines in electronics assembly lines to the next level. The Hermes Standard has been initiated, developed and established and is further maintained by a group of leading equipment suppliers, bundling their expertise in order to achieve a great step towards advanced process integration. It has been recognized by IPC to be the next generation solution for IPC-SMEMA-9851, usually refered to as “the SMEMA standard”. Its found and defining body, The Hermes Standard Initiative, is open to all equipment vendors who want to actively participate in bringing the benefits of Industry 4.0 to their customers.

Advanced M2M communication for board flow management in SMT assembly lines
The Hermes Standard (IPC-HERMES-9852) provides the state of the art for board flow management along mixed vendor lines in SMT assembly. It is officially recognized as the next generation technology setting forth from the IPC-SMEMA-9851 standard. Where SMEMA in the late 1990s was a first important step towards board handover between machines in an SMT assembly line, The Hermes Standard introduces the full capabilities of industrie 4.0 technologies to the assembly line.

Let The Hermes Standard help you unleash the full power of your assembly line.
