Frontline Launches InShop Data Analysis Software


Reading time ( words)

Frontline, a software PCB solutions subsidiary of Orbotech, has launched InShop® ─ a new Industry 4.0 software solution for PCB manufacturers. InShop will provide printed circuit board manufacturers with fast and insightful analysis of data from across the production floor to monitor operations and detect anomalies in near-real time. This advanced solution will help improve manufacturing operational KPIs (yield, throughput and quality), enabling faster time-to-market and improved process stabilization. Orbotech is a KLA company.

"InShop allows PCB manufacturers to exploit the massive amounts of data generated from shop floor machines and turn it into actionable insights for rapid problem solving,” says Yovav Sameah, president, Frontline PCB Solutions. “We want to provide manufacturers with a clear view of the data they collect as well as speed up the detection of problems and anomalies before they start to impact yield and efficiency."

While massive amounts of machine data are created daily during the manufacturing process, it has become clear that in order to maximize manufacturers' production quality and efficiency, data needs to be collected, measured, analyzed and immediately acted upon. These steps are essential as high-end electronics manufacturing becomes increasingly competitive and PCB shops look for ways to increase their differentiation. InShop’s advanced analysis and industry 4.0 capabilities will enable PCB manufacturers to gather and analyze huge quantities of data and make near-real time decisions based on the resulting actionable intelligence. 

InShop's advantage in PCB data analysis is based on Frontline's 25 years of experience and expertise in PCB production, its in-depth understanding of the industry and its leadership of the CAM and engineering software solutions market. By leveraging data collected from various machines on the shop floor including process parameters, machine utilization, and scrap data, InShop identifies anomalies and trends, enabling the manufacturer to perform root cause analyses and present actionable insights to transform manufacturing quality and efficiency.
InShop, Frontline’s Industry 4.0 solution, is part of Frontline’s world-leading line of integrated software solutions that automates the entire pre-production process for PCB manufacturing, from preparing a quote to process planning and CAM, all the way to the production floor.

Top Five Takeaways from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/15/2021 | Chris Mitchell, IPC VP, Global Government Relations
IPC APEX EXPO 2021, which went all virtual this year, exemplified how the electronics industry has responded to the COVID-19 global pandemic: with resiliency, agility, and an unwavering commitment to build electronics better. APEX EXPO featured great content and robust discussions on topics of critical importance to the global electronics industry. From my vantage point leading IPC’s government relations programs, here are my top five takeaways from this year’s event.

Highlights on a Rousing Virtual IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/14/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
What a week that was! I didn’t get to endure the 11-hour flight each way, neither did I need my comfy old shoes, but it certainly was a marathon event. And real-time-plus-six-hours gave me a few late nights, but it was such a meaningful experience, and well worth the effort!

IPC Supporting Newcomers in the Industry: Notes from IPC APEX EXPO 2021

04/01/2021 | Marc Carter, Aeromarc
With the wrap-up of IPC APEX EXPO 2021, it was extremely gratifying to note the emphasis placed on getting young people involved to combat the “graying out” knowledge losses facing our industry. A part of that emphasis was reflected in the award ceremony on Tuesday, March 9, which featured some people you may have seen mentioned in my “Better to Light a Candle” columns.
