Pro Compiler

Among the most efficient methods of generating a Mascot assembly procedure is to use the optional Robotas Pro Compiler package. Pro Compiler imports existing PCB CAD data and Bill of Materials (BOM) files to create the majority of the assembly program in a matter of minutes.

Supported CAD formats include ODB++, CADIF, GenCAD, Mentor Neutral, Gerber Drill Files, Pads, CadStar, Calay, Protel, Cimbridge, PCAD, Fabmaster, Tango, Eagle and more.

Workflow

To maximise overall productivity and traceability, optional Workflow software collects and analyses time and other production data from every Mascot station to track throughput against work schedules in real time, and to log critical production data.

As part of a Kanban methodology, operators can signal directly to stores that they are running low on material by pressing the ‘Need’ button. Materials Control can then replenish the Mascot’s inventory seamlessly without operator interruption, to further streamline lean manufacturing.
