At APEX 2013 in San Diego, MYDATA is scheduled to release new models of its popularSMD Tower for compact storage of electronics manufacturing components. The new models will allow manufacturers
to increase uptime and reduce changeover costs by providing 22% more storage capacity within the same one-meter footprint.
The SMD Tower from MYDATA is one of the market’s most compact automated storage solutions for electronic components. By automatically storing and retrieving components in a MSD-compliant environment, it provides improved quality control and changeover efficiency for all sectors of the electronics manufacturing market.
With the new SMD Tower models, the company has succeeded in expanding storage capacity in order to house up to 658 reels within an identical one-meter footprint. In addition to further reducing kitting and changeover times, this increased capacity makes it possible for manufacturers to complete more jobs and shorter batches with no additional operating costs.
As with all of MYDATA’s SMD Towers, the new models offer complete automated component storage with an open interface for simple integration with existing ERP systems. According to Mattias Jonsson, Product Manager for Software and Storage Solutions at MYDATA, “by keeping the same intelligent features while significantly boosting storage capacity, we’re giving customers exactly what they expect us to deliver: the lowest cost-per-placement in the industry.”
The new SMD Tower will be available in two versions – the SMD Tower 2000 and SMD Tower 5130 – which are
optimized according to the size and type of component reels to be stored. For more information and product demos, visit Booth 2639 at APEX 2013 in San Diego on February 19-21.
