Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, launches CUBUS, its next-generation storage tower, at SMT 2014 in Nuremberg.
“With the development of a next-generation storage system, Essemtec has gone one step ahead of the current storage systems and their limitations,” states Manuel Jenni, Product Manager. The new CUBUS has user-adjustable shelves that can be varied in 5 mm steps and are auto-configured. Thus reels range from 8 to 72 mm and are easily accommodated. Moreover, the shelves occupy either two small 7" reels or one 13 or 15" reel, further optimizing packing density without compromising flexibility. It can store 5-6 reels per minute. The CUBUS comes in two sizes and houses 600 or 900 reels each and automatically detects diameter and width of each reel.
The SQL-based software is further improved and all standard inventory management schemes are supported (FIFO, etc.) as well as data exchange with host systems. Naturally, all well-known options such as humidity control, temperature monitoring and bar code labeling are supported. The SMD storage system also monitors moisture sensitive devices (MSDs) and stores these controlled according to IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033B.1.
