Seamless handover of department management

Dr Paul Wild (left) and Dr Hans Bell (right).

Since February 1, 2019, the research and development department at Rehm Thermal Systems has had a new manager: Dr Paul Wild. He takes over as department head from Dr Hans Bell, who has led the research and development department for nearly 20 years and will retire in 2020. Dr Wild has worked for Rehm since the end of 2014.

The previous deputy, Dr Paul Wild, experienced and technologically well-versed, now takes over the management of the development department. „Over the last few years I have been able to familiarise myself with many aspects of the R&D department and accumulate valuable experience. I quickly got involved in the existing development processes and worked with my scientific expertise to expand R&D,“ says Dr Wild, who has worked for Rehm, manufacturer of thermal system solutions, since the end of 2014. Dr Bell“s three key pillars of research and development at Rehm will remain the focus for the future: Research projects with institutes and industrial project partners, technological cooperation with customers, but above all internal research and development projects.

After nearly 20 years as head of the research and development department, Dr Hans Bell will continue to work in research and development at Rehm until he retires in 2020, passing on his experience and know-how to assist Paul Wild in meeting the new challenges. „I have great confidence for the future, because the department is in very good hands,“ says Dr Bell. „Paul Wild has a gift for talking with people, listening to them and leading creative conversations.“ He has always felt comfortable „in and with the entire Rehm team,“ says Dr Bell. „It’s a good relationship that is perfectly goal-oriented. For that I“m very thankful.“

To this day, Dr Bell values the work with the customers and project partners of Rehm Thermal Systems: „It is important to maintain a balance between our own development and technological know-how transfer in cooperation with partners.“ There“s one thing that makes him prouder than any other: the integration of young people into the company. „Be it students or school pupils who completed internships or undertaking graduate study in development – many have stayed with Rehm to this day. It shows that the company has a really great appeal.“

Dr Paul Wild
Dr Paul Wild studied Aerospace Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. After graduation he worked as a research associate at Hahn-Schickard Institute for Microsystems Engineering in Stuttgart. His specialisation was the reliability analysis of mechatronic systems, particularly based on MID technology. He has worked in the research and development department at Rehm Thermal Systems since November 2014. The main focus of his work is the development and enhancement of thermal systems, as well as technological cooperation with institutes and companies. In 2018 he received his doctorate from Hahn-Schickard Institute on the subject of reliability and life-cycle modelling of solder joints.

Dr Hans Bell
Dr Hans Bell has led the Research and Development Department at Rehm Thermal Systems since 2000. Until the end of 1999 he worked as a manufacturing technologist for DeTeWe in Berlin and was predominantly responsible for production-oriented tasks in the development of connection technologies, particularly soft soldering. During this time he obtained a doctorate from TU Munich, specialising in soldering. Over the course of his career Dr Bell has acquired extensive knowledge in the field of soft soldering, as illustrated by numerous patents, technical papers and books, and lectures and seminars.

As a specialist in the field of thermal system solutions for the electronics and photovoltaics industries, Rehm is a technology and innovation leader in the modern and economical production of electronic modules. As a globally operating manufacturer of reflow soldering systems with convection, condensation or vacuum, drying and coating systems, functional test systems, equipment for the metallisation of solar cells as well as numerous customer-specific special systems, we are represented in all relevant growth markets and, as a partner with more than 25 years of industry experience, we implement innovative manufacturing solutions that set standards.

Creating connections: From challenges come opportunities
Strong connections bridge even the widest distances – whether spatially or technically-speaking in the case of the Hermes standard. By participating in this initiative, Rehm Thermal Systems is also contributing to making system networking within SMT manufacturing easier, quicker and more efficient in the future.
Together with other manufacturers of SMD production equipment, Rehm has been working intensively on a digital interface for M2M communication within a production line in recent months. „Within The Hermes Standard Initiative, it quickly became clear that the reflow soldering system would be one of the sticking points in the way of a seamless digital interface,“ explains Markus Mittermair, Software Development Manager at Rehm Thermal Systems.

The decisive factor in this respect is that in a soldering system, several assemblies are used at the same time. It is important to identify these clearly after the soldering process in order to reliably assign the manufactured assembly“s information. The barcode on the assembly, the Hermes Board ID number and the assembly data are communicated. These are Width, Length, Weight, Speed, FailedBoard (good/bad transfer), FlippedBoard (position of PCB), Thickness, TopClearanceHeight and BottomClearanceHeight.

„As the first manufacturer of reflow soldering systems, Rehm already offers two different Hermes solutions for the VisionXP+. One has scanner on the outfeed conveyor, the other doesn“t. This will allow us to pave the way to networked manufacturing and smart factories for our customers today,“ says Michael Hanke, General Sales Manager at Rehm Thermal Systems.

If there is no scanner on the outfeed conveyor, assemblies cannot be removed or inserted (reinserted). This is ensured by a cover on the outfeed conveyor, which prevents boards from being taken out or inserted. This guarantees that no data is lost or assigned to the wrong assembly.

In the variant with a scanner on the outfeed conveyor, boards can be removed after the soldering process and reused. The data always remains assigned to the correct board. This allows for manual visual inspection of assemblies as well as sampling for quality assurance processes.

Production space is an important topic in every manufacturing operation. A separate downstream outfeed conveyor would not be appropriate in many production lines. Therefore, the developers at Rehm Thermal Systems took a different approach to implement this successfully. They integrated a separate transport into the outfeed area after the cooling section, which only extends the overall length of the system by approx. 50 cm. „This structural change was necessary to reliably ensure separation of the assemblies and therefore, clear identification after the soldering process. This is the only way to ensure that every board within the soldering system is recognised and the data is correctly assigned,“ explains Markus Mittermair.

The Hermes standard offers an overreaching protocol, irrespective of manufacturer, for machine-to-machine communication (M2M) in module manufacturing. The objective is to improve or simplify the board-flow-management, traceability and electrical wiring across all stations of an SMT line. Modern communication technology and standardised data formats for M2M communication (TCP/IP and XML-based protocol) are used for this purpose. The Hermes standard is officially recognised as a next-generation technology, and follows the IPC-SMEMA-9851 standard. In the long term, „The Hermes Standard“ is designed to replace the existing SMEMA interface. With IPC recognition, The Hermes Standard Initiative has reached an important milestone in the digitalisation of electronics manufacturing.

MacBooks werden immer leichter. Datenverluste werden extremer

Apple hat vor Jahren begonnen seine MacBook Air Reihe mit SSD Festplatten auszustatten. Mittlerweile werden schon embedded SSDs verbaut. Das hat für Kunden Konsequenzen.

MacBooks werden immer leichter. Datenverluste werden extremer

intel ssd 320 serie bad ctx error

Apple hat vor Jahren begonnen seine MacBook Air Produktreihe mit schnellen SSD Festplatten auszustatten. Aus Platzgründen wurden die verbauten Laufwerke immer schlanker und schmäler. Der verfügbare Platz wurde auch damit flächenmäßig immer geringer. Das stellte nahmhafte SSD Hersteller vor Herausforderungen.

So kann man in einem MacBook Air schon in 2011 die heute verfügbare SSHD nicht verbauen, da sie einfach zu groß ist. Auch die schmale intel SSD 360 Serie passt nicht mehr in die 2012/2013 Baureihen.

Mittlerweile werden schon embedded SSDs verbaut. Diese SSD wird als BGA Chip auf dem Notebook Mainboard verbaut. Man kann sie nicht einfach abstecken, abschrauben oder abheben, wie man es sonst von CPUs aus Mainboards kennt.

Das hat für Kunden erhebliche Konsequenzen, denn ein Upgrade auf einen größeren Speicher kann man nicht durchführen. Ist die SSD beschädigt oder das Mainboard (logiboard) dann kann eine einfache Mac Datenrettung nicht mehr erfolgen.

Mit einer speziellen Rework Station muß die SSD von dem Logiboard losgelöst werden. Die ACATO GmbH verwendet bereits solche Rework Stationen und hat auch diese BGA Reflow Systeme in seinem Vertriebsprogramm. Behördenkunden und andere ausländische Datenretter kaufen bei ACATO ihre Ausrüstung sowie Software, um erfolgreich Ihren Kunden helfen zu können.

Im Forensikbereich werden diese Systeme ebenfalls verwendet, um eine Beweissicherung auch unter widrigen Umständen zu ermöglichen. Die speziellen Handlungsanweisungen helfen gezielt und schnell die Beweise zu extrahieren und auszuwerten. In machen Fällen müssen die IT Forensiker auch in einem funkgeschützten Zelt arbeiten, damit das Risiko einer Verfälschung von Beweisen verhindert wird. Elektronische Diebstahlsicherungen der Täter können unter Umständen auch per Fernauslöser Daten löschen. Die funkgeschützten Zelte der Firma EDEC Digital Forensics sind Teil des Distributionsprogramms der ACATO und werden weitestgehend von internationalen Sicherheitskräften weltweit eingesetzt.

Dennoch müssen Kunden älterer MacBook Air Modelle sich keine Sorgen machen, denn mit der richtigen Ausrüstung und Vorgehensweise können häufig fast alle Daten aus den SSDs gerettet werden. Selbst die extrem kleinen M2 SSD Laufwerke werden im Datenrettungslabor in München gerettet.

Wer seinen MacBook Pro aufrüsten möchte sollte sich idealerweise für eine SSD von Samsung, Kingston, goodRam oder intel entscheiden. Dennoch muss man weitestgehend achten, dass keine Verschlüsselung verwendet wird, da manche SSDs unter bestimmten Umständen dazu neigen nach kurzer Zeit auszufallen. Es gibt keinen 100% Schutz gegen Datenverlust, jedoch kann man mit wenigen Handgriffen das Risiko um 30% senken.

Wie schafft es die ACATO GmbH in ihrem Labor Mac Daten zu retten ?

Ein MacBook Air der neuesten Generation muss komplett zerlegt werden. Anschliessend werden alle wichtigen Bauteile speziell mit einer Schutzschicht gegen Hitze überdeckt. Empfindliche Bauteile erhalten eine spezielle Behandlung bevor der eigentliche Arbeitsgang beginnt.

Dann wird das große Bauteil auf eine RE 8500 Rework Station oder mit der Turbo IR speziell auf eine vorgegebene Temperatur gebracht. Danach wird der Chip mit Infrarot langsam und kontrolliert erwärmt und vom Mainboard gelöst. Danach wird der Chip gereinigt und in einem hierzu konstruierten Adapter eingesetzt. Daraufhin beginnt das Reengineering der Daten. Dies führt nach mehreren Arbeitsstunden zum gewünschten Ergebnis.

Das macht die Datenrettung solcher ultradünner Geräte besonders aufwendig.

Die ACATO GmbH bietet eigene Produkte und Dienstleistungen für die Branchen Audit, Compliance und Forensik an. Sie verfügt über einen eigenen Reinraum und Flashlabor (bekannt aus Galileo 2012/2013 TV-Sendungen). Daher beauftragen auch Behörden (Zollfahndung, Militär) und internationale Wirtschaftsprüfer die ACATO GmbH mit Beweissicherungen aus beschädigten Datenträgern.

Rehm and a New World of Temperature Monitoring

Rehm Thermal systems and pro-micron have teamed up to develop a wireless temperature sensor

Rehm and a New World of Temperature Monitoring

TiP300 allows temperature measurements with no external power supply or connecting cable (Source: @ pro-micron)

Every electronics manufacturer wants stable production processes and precise monitoring of production parameters. In thermal processes such as soldering, drying or curing of electronic assemblies, reliable and reproducible temperature profiling is important for achieving high-quality results. Temperature monitoring in the challenging soldering process therefore has special significance. TiP300 is a new wireless temperature sensor technology developed by pro-micron and tuned to the specific requirements of condensation soldering with the CondensoX series from Rehm Thermal Systems (http://www.rehm-group.com). The technology was exhibited for the first time under the name WPS 2.4 (Wireless Profiling System) at the Rehm booth at this year’s SMT in Nuremberg.

The WPS 2.4 is a temperature measurement system, a unique innovation worldwide, used for precise detection of the reflow profile in condensation soldering processes. The innovative temperature sensor technology makes it possible to check and to document at little or no expense the machine and process capability in thermal processes exactly and reliably, without affecting the ongoing production.

The temperature sensor of the WPS 2.4 with firmly attached antenna is fixed to the carrier of the CondensoX soldering systems from Rehm. No power supply is necessary. As the name of the system suggests, no cables are needed to transmit the temperature from the sensor to the receiving antenna. This is done via a radio signal. Evaluation electronics deliver temperature readings live to the system control via a digital interface. In the recorder software, also newly developed by Rehm, the temperatures are plotted graphically in real time. The transmitting and receiving antennae were optimized by pro-micron for this application. The WPS 2.4 therefore guarantees continuous monitoring of soldering processes up to 300 °C and provides a new quality of temperature detection.

Advantages of the WPS 2.4 at a glance:
-100 % process monitoring
-Simple and continuous quality verification
-Lower cost for profile measurements
-Greater transparency in the detection of machine and process capability
-No disruptive cables

The measuring system is available for the first time in the CondensoX series from Rehm Thermal Systems as an option for new installations and as a retrofit solution. „With the WPS 2.4 we put our clients in a position to meet the growing demands of complete traceability and of industry 4.0“, assures Michael Hanke, Chief Customer Officer of Rehm. In the future, the system will also be available for other processes such as convection soldering, annealing and drying.

Rehm Thermal Systems was founded in 1990 by Johannes Rehm and is a provider of reflow soldering systems and drying systems for the electronics industry as well as a manufacturer of fast firing systems and solar dryers for the metallization of solar cells. With Simply. More. Ideas. our goal is to become technological leaders in all areas of production and offer our customers sustainable, future-oriented products.

New Rehm Homepage Design

Modern and clear: website relaunch offers expanded functionality

New Rehm Homepage Design

Technology is innovation, technology is our challenge, technology is our passion! This is what Rehm Thermal Systems (http://www.rehm-group.com) strives to communicate more clearly to the public – with a brand new website. In relaunching its website the leading manufacturer of reflow soldering systems, coating and drying systems is focussing on product-specific information, clear design and high functionality in applications. The website is currently available in German and English and is optimised for desktop, tablet or mobile devices. A Chinese version will be available soon.

Customers increasingly rely on the Internet for research and have already made their decision before visiting a dealer. The networking of channels that link potential customers with brands and products is becoming more and more important.

The new Rehm website design features a fresh and modern page layout and makes the website a key channel for information and communication within the sector. The entire Rehm product portfolio is clearly laid out, presenting process properties, specific system details, and new software tools. Defined colour-coding ensures optimal user guidance and elegantly ties information and functionality to design.

Furthermore, customers have instant access to detailed information on current industry topics, seminar series, news and events, and the extensive range of testing and manufacturing equipment in the Rehm Technology Center (http://www.rehm-group.com) . Brochures and flyers are available to download in just one click in the new media center.

With an expanded sales & service module with vCard function, it is considerably easier to make direct contact with relevant partners and Rehm’s online presence is even more attractive.

We look forward to your visit to: www.rehm-group.com (http://www.rehm-group.com)
