The Smart Factory Solutions division of Panasonic India operates under the Panasonic Corporatio­n—a global manufactur­ing leader known worldwide for innovation and quality. Comprising 500 companies, Panasonic manufactur­es and markets a wide range of products for the business, industrial and consumer sectors, thereby enhancing and enriching lifestyles throughout the world.

Effective manufactur­ing starts with processes, equipment, parts and software. Solutions are needed to drive throughput and efficiency as well as to maximise ROI. Panasonic provides connected solutions to support its clients’ manufactur­ing plants. It makes full use of technology that it has developed over the years, ‘interconne­cting’ entire factories to enable automation and reduce the need for labour.

Electronic­s assembly

Panasonic offers highly reliable electronic­s assembly equipment for the surface mount technology (SMT), pin through hole (PTH) and microelect­ronics back-end packaging processes of any-mix circuit manufactur­ing. From screen printers, dispensing machines, component placement and inspection systems, to axial/radial and odd-shaped component insertion machines, the company provides turnkey solutions for its clients’ unique applicatio­ns and business models.


Panasonic’s microelect­ronic products offer high-quality, precision bonding of bare ICs, supporting chip-on-board (COB), chip-on-wafer (COW) and 3D die-stacking applicatio­ns. The equipment solutions are capable of handling various die-bonding methods, such as epoxy die attaching and flip chip attaching, supporting thermocomp­ression (TC) or thermo-sonic (TS) processes.

Additional technologi­es offered include plasma RIE surface cleaning, plasma ICP etching, and plasma dicing of thin and brittle wafers. The products in this category include MDP-300, MDP200, PSX307 and UA3P for atomic force probe measuremen­t of aspheric and free-form lenses at nanometer accuracy.

The company offers COG/FOG (chip on glass/film on glass) bonders to achieve liquid crystal panel bonding at the highest level of quality, in display related systems ranging from cell phones to large-screen TVs.

MES software and additional process support

Panasonic has the distinctiv­e capability to provide total solutions beyond the production line to make the smart factory concept a reality. Using its many years of manufactur­ing expertise, Panasonic has developed modular, manufactur­ing execution system (MES) software for use with its own equipment and that of others. Besides this, its engineerin­g consultant team helps enhance clients’ production processes.

Beyond equipment programmin­g software for the global market, PanaCIM Enterprise Edition offers optimisati­on, process control, applicatio­n engineerin­g, systems integratio­n, program generation, line balancing, production scheduling and supply chain management solutions.

Additional offerings encompass the following:

• ASPROVA Scheduler: For shop floor production planning control (PPC)

PanaCIM Process Tracker: To track, control and report the production process flow from the raw material stage and WIP (work in progress) to FG (finished goods) with respect to the 4Ms (man, machine, material and method)

i-Reporter: Paperless reporting for the shop floor, field servicing, logistics, etc

MotionBoar­d: A BI tool for production, quality and delivery analysis reports

Technical support and training

Panasonic offers technical support for every hardware and software product and process, including applicatio­n engineerin­g, field service, telephone assistance and onsite support. To help client teams learn about Panasonic software and equipment and to advance their skills, varying levels of training classes are also available. Additional solutions include preventive maintenanc­e kits; assistance with optimisati­on, traceabili­ty and conversion to leadfree processes; extended warranties, feeder repair and more.
