Great development of „The Hermes Standard“

The networking of the entire production is the target of the smart factory. With the communication protocol “The Hermes Standard”, a new M2M communication was created, which may replace the SMEMA standard.

At this year´s SMT Hybrid Packaging at Nuremberg, customers and members proved the successful development of “The Hermes Standard”, that was introduced only 15 months before.

Based on a TCP/IP and XML protocol, “The Hermes Standard” provides to pass on PCBs seamlessly and without data loss through all stations of an SMT line. This should significantly reduce the time for setting up and integrating an SMT line and provide better transparency of the production process.

Besides further well-known manufacturers, SMT Thermal Discovery participates “The Hermes Standard” as one of the leading SMT suppliers right from the start and supports the networking of the intelligent SMT line.

Electronic manufacturer can download the specification of “The Hermes Standard” at the official website free of charge.
