May 29, 2012 – Upholding its promise to continuously advance thermal profiling technology, ECD has announced the release of M.O.L.E.® MAP 3.00 (MAP 3.00) software designed to provide even greater levels of machine-assembly-process optimization.
Function-rich and environment-adaptable, MAP 3.00 offers in-depth data and analysis capability within a highly versatile software platform that seamlessly integrates with all ECD profiling hardware. MAP 3.00 allows engineering specialists to utilize ECD sensor inputs to ECD M.O.L.E. thermal profilers for operation within a unique Environment, which is attuned to the specific profiling job. The software switches from one application to the next, allowing effortless transitions between wave soldering and reflow processes.
EMI filter manufacturer, Captor Corporation, recently implemented MAP 3.00 and saw immediate, positive results. "MAP software gives us the ability to seamlessly move between different processes," explains Lee Hasselbeck, Manufacturing Engineer at Tipp City, Ohio-based Captor. "We can use the same program for both wave and reflow, which saves a significant amount of time and, therefore, reduces cost."
Other notable advantages of ECD’s MAP 3.00 include features such as:
- Start wizards that provide step-by-step guidance for new process development, existing process adjustments, fast data downloads and process verification
- Simplified navigation and file sharing that enable quick links to previous sessions, multi-profile sharing through a bulk import feature and quick report distribution via PDF or e-mail
- Target-10 functionality that provides "go/no-go" result indication, intuitive data interpretation and deep drill-down data for masterful engineering analysis
- Environment user-selectable M.O.L.E. and RIDER pairings that separate one profiling data acquisition activity from another for environment- and application-specific information
"Our thermal profiling solutions are designed to deliver all of the data an engineer requires to ensure a robust process," proudly states ECD VP of Sales and Marketing, Todd Clifton. "We've engineered MAP 3.00 to help process engineers save time, reduce cost and raise yield – all while offering superior capability."
And, according to Hasselbeck, that’s just what MAP 3.00 has provided to Captor. "ECD’s new software is intuitive, process-adaptable and, best of all, backward-compatible with our existing ECD hardware," says Hasselbeck. "When you pair exceptional technology with ECD’s phenomenal customer service, it’s an unbeatable recipe for success."
