TRI to participate on Fuji’s ELF Standard for M2M in SMT Assembly

January 2018 – Taipei, Taiwan Test Research, Inc. (TRI), the leading test and inspection systems provider for the electronics manufacturing industry, announces its participation in Fuji’s ELF Standard for M2M in SMT Assembly. At TRI, we are firm believers that Industry 4.0 will revolutionize how the SMT Industry operates by being able to interconnect different machines from different vendors providing and optimizing their production lines. he ELF standard is reshaping the SMT assembly industry by providing a lean production and manufacturing with faster turnarounds in production levels, thus increasing its participant’s competitiveness. The ELF standard aims to minimize resistance to facilitate it. By the cooperating with SMT assembly innovators, Industry 4.0 trend will significantly benefit from standards that the participating vendors can follow.


Lean Production Line

An approach to manage processes which focus on reducing waste and/or defects, hence ensuring quality and reducing the overall production cost. A lean production line is demand-driven and assures an efficient production level following the Just in Time (JIT) principle. Sharing the same values and goals of Fuji’s standard, TRI will join other industry pioneers such as Panasonic, Yamaha and CKD Corporation. TRI follows the same principles of Manufacturability consideration design (DFM) and Environmentally-friendly design (DFE) by providing high-quality assurance inspection to the SMT assembly industry. Discover how TRI’s PCBA test and inspection solutions work together with Industry 4.0 data management infrastructure to bring you maximum value in the production line and minimize production costs. TRI’s systems are designed to interoperate with other manufacturing equipment to minimize downtime, optimize production quality and reduce operator workload.
