SMT is member 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.
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.
