SIMATIC IT UniCam

MES Manufacturing Execution System for Electronics and NPI

Siemens provides the most widely used solutions to address the critical needs of electronics manufacturers. Today, these manufacturers must bring cost-effective products to market faster than ever before, while meeting a variety of challenges.
The products in the SIMATIC IT UniCam family (SIMATIC IT UniCam FX, SIMATIC IT UniCam Test Expert and SIMATIC IT eMES) help to address these issues.

SIMATIC IT Unicam FX, SIMATIC IT Test Expert and SIMATIC IT eMES are comprehensive solutions for Electronics OEM and contract manufacturers for New Product Introduction NPI and Manufacturing Execution.

  • Use SIMATIC IT UniCam FX to program the broad spectrum of electronics assembly equipment: SMT, AOI, Dispense, Screen Printers, THT and Manual Assembly.

  • For low mix, high volume manufacturers, UniCam FX is the perfect solution to create accurate multi-job setups.  Improve productivity on your SMT lines by reducing changeover time by as much as 75%

  • For high volume manufacturing, UniCam FX advanced machine optimization dramatically increases line throughput and reduces bottlenecks

  • Create and deliver paperless documentation directly to the shop floor using UniCam FX, UniDoc FX and ViewStation FX

  • Test Expert offers complete flexibility and control during fixture design and flying probe selection and eases flying probe access on dense boards with a global probe offset tool

  • Test Expert provides immediate feedback to designers and reduces testing costs by verifying Design for Testability (DFT) rules upfront before fabrication

  • Test Expert reduces cycle times on variants of the same board by managing attributes such as device types, values and tolerances as well as package and pad sizes/shapes

  • Test Expert automatically generates programs and inputs for a wide range of commonly used ICT, flying probe testers, x-ray and AOI machines

  • eMES is an integrated solution which cover all aspects of manufacturing execution of PCB and Boxes including:
    - Product & Process Traceability
    - Quality Management
    - Test and Repair Process
    - Production Client for PCB and Box
    - Component Traceability
    - Box Build and Genealogy
    - Online Reporting


SIMATIC IT UniCam FX

UniCam FX supports optimization, programming and documentation of PCB assembly processes

SIMATIC IT UniCam FX is the most commonly used NPI software tool in the industry for design and optimization of PCB assembly processes. By covering the entire NPI process, from CAD import through recipe generation, and by supporting single platform and mixed-vendor lines, this proven solution helps continuously improve your NPI process and maximize the uptime and throughput of your lines.

Key Capabilities and Benefits

SIMATIC IT UniCam Test Expert

SIMATIC IT Unicam Test Expert (formerly Fabmaster) is the most widely used DFT and test programming software application in the industry today.  Test Expert is a fully integrated solution that allows electronics manufacturers to go from design to test and inspection in a matter of minutes or hours, rather than days. With its fast, user-programmable, nail/probe selection routine and complementary interactive tools, Test Expert offers complete flexibility and control during fixture design for ICT and advanced flying probe selection.

  • Import native CAD data with the greatest range of CAD input formats supported in the industry today (65+ formats), or reverse engineer the design from Gerber data

  • Perform fast upfront DFT on any CAD design before handing off to manufacturing

  • Create flexible fixture design setups that can be saved and re-used

  • Quickly compare cost versus test coverage for different test technologies

  • Generate recipes for test systems including ICT, flying probe, X-Ray and AOI

  • Manage variants and generate a universal fixture design that can be used to test all product variants within a family

  • Define rules for automatic nail/probe selection for in-circuit and flying probe testers

  • View problem nets and decide on corrective actions using accessibility report with CAD graphics

  • Seamless connection to MES
