www.us- tech.com CTM Lyng Transitions to the Smart Factory with ASM E-Solutions By Melanie Bechmann, ASM Marketing Communications Manager, ASM Assembly Systems


the company took action to transition to a smart factory. ASM’s E-Solutions for printing and placement, as well as the company’s soft- ware solutions, have enabled CTM Lyng to significantly improve its throughput, flexibil- ity and productivity. Business is good for CTM Lyng. The fi-

nancial crisis of 2008 hit the pure-play EMS provider hard, which is why the company de- cided to make its own products, in addition to offering contract manufacturing services. This step, along with a successful merger, brought the company back on the road to suc- cess. CTM Lyng has posted rising sales ever since and has become a leading supplier of smart home solutions in Norway — selling more than 300 products under its own brand. “After our production had moved more


and more toward our own smart home solu- tions, the time had come in 2018 to make the necessary replacement and expansion invest- ments,” explains Thomas Kruksve, process engineer, CTM Lyng. “Both production lines had reached their capacity limit, and our technical capabilities were no longer in line with the high demands we place on our prod- ucts, in terms of quality and flexibility.” Another goal was to modernize and au-

ning more or less by the seat of their pants in processes that had grown over the years, which


made the workflows increasingly susceptible to mistakes, depending on specific people, and more labor-intensive as the number of products and variants increased,” says Kruksve.


Comprehensive, Flexible Solution CTM Lyng compared proposals from a


range of equipment suppliers in detailed evaluations. “We wanted a mid-speed solu- tion with short set up times and optimized material supplies that would give us the flexibility we needed to produce the PCBs for our various lines. ASM was quickly at the top of the short list, with its E-Solutions for printing and placement,” says Kruksve. “We were particularly impressed by the software concept, because the E-Solutions software is identical to the software for ASM’s high-end solutions, which makes it compatible with their workflow solutions. In combination with forward-looking solutions like the ASM Material Manager and ASM Remote Smart Factory, the total package was unbeatable in terms of cost, effective benefits and invest- ment protection.” ASM installed an E by DEK printer


and three E by SIPLACE placement ma- chines at CTM Lyng. To supply the produc- tion with component reels, an automatic ASM material tower storage system is avial- able. Material-related processes and set ups are coordinated by the material manager software, which closes the software support gap between the ERP and shop floor.
