ORBOTECH S.A. the European subsidiary of Orbotech Ltd., a global innovator of enabling technologies used in the manufacture of the world’s most sophisticated consumer and industrial products in the electronics and adjacent industries, today announced that Varioprint AG, a leading PCB producer in Switzerland, successfully implemented the InCAM CAM editing solution for high-end, complex multi-layer boards, developed by Frontline PCB Solutions.
“InCAM’s CAM Guide helps us achieve consistently high-quality CAM task editing,” said Markus Altenburger, InCAM Implementation Project Manager and Deputy Manager of Application Engineering, Varioprint AG. “InCAM is easily customizable and its unique background-processing (multi-core processing) capabilities enable increased efficiency. Implementing InCAM is fast and its fuss-free interface design offers a productive user experience.”
“InCAM-InPlan®Flex integration also provided a crucial edge,” said Martin Steiner, Application Engineering Manager, Varioprint AG. “We’ve been using Frontline’s InPlan Flex engineering system for several years now. The close integration between the two products meant that implementation was smooth and easy and completed in just a few months. While InPlan Flex enables us to store manufacturing knowledge, organize our workflow and work with standardized rules that reduce planning time by up to 30%, we can now boost our competitiveness both through faster engineering planning and CAM editing.”
“We are very pleased to have Varioprint’s continued confidence in our products,” said Hadar Himmelman, President, Orbotech West. “We believe that InCAM’s exceptional automatic editing and analysis capabilities help our customers work with maximum efficiency and speed. Seeing customers using both our leading CAM and engineering solutions supports our vision of providing an integrated software product solution that automates the PCB manufacturing preproduction process, from preparing a quote, to process planning and CAM, all the way to the production floor.”
InCAM is a comprehensive, innovative CAM solution for high-end manufacturers that combines editing and analysis with automatic design-for-manufacture optimization to perform high-precision CAM tooling, with maximum efficiency and speed — helping manufacturers achieve lasting profitability and a competitive edge. InCAM supports yield growth by enabling operators to multi-task and run advanced processes in the background, using the computer's multi-core CPU capabilities. Cycle time is dramatically shortened as colleagues team up on jobs in a data-secure, collaborative environment. InCAM delivers improved data integrity and fault indication by allowing interactive post-processing on selected DFM results. Operators enjoy a streamlined user interface and remarkably easy-to-use tools.
