JOT Automation Debuts Modular Solutions for Product Identification

Nov 25, 2014

JOT Automation, the leading supplier of test and production solutions, complements its test solutions with modular product identification equipment. The JOT Scanner Unit SCU-439 and JOT Fail Separation Unit FMM-440 are designed for automated test lines and can be used with any process equipment that needs product identification data or if there is a need to mark/separate faulty products after the process.

In today’s fast-moving industry, almost every product needs to be identified prior to testing. SCU-439 and FMM-440 provide a reliable solution for both product traceability and code reading. Identification occurs by reading codes such as 2D, 3D, RFID, etc. Additionally, the systems can separate failed products from the line immediately after testing or mark them for manual failed product handling, which happens later in the process.

Having one common point at the beginning of the test line will reduce test hardware costs and give more freedom for product-specific fixture design,” says Mika Puttonen, Product Manager at JOT Automation.

In addition, our new solutions provide both flexibility and modularity. They are compatible with different types of code readers and product variations, allowing them to easily adapt to various line configurations.”

SCU-439 and FMM-440 provide multiple options that ensure solutions to best fit a user’s current needs. For added flexibility, machine functionality can be adjusted by sales options, which are modules that are selected based on current need, e.g. axis (topside, bottom-side, dual, none) or lift (integrated, external or none). Modules can be added or changed later, allowing machine functionality to be fine-tuned for future needs. Additionally, new products can be configured off-line and imported to a production line machine, minimizing production stops.

Our solutions are fully automated and designed for in-line use. Up to 200 different customer products can be configured and saved, making product changeover extremely fast, just 10-20 seconds. Both also have the ability to read up to 25 codes per product, on either a top- or bottom-side location,” continues Mika Puttonen.

SCU-439 sends code data through RS232 or Ethernet to the next process unit that needs the identification. FMM-440 receives product-related PASS/FAIL data from process equipment via an Ethernet connection and saves the information in a local data table. Further, FMM-440 marks failed products with temporary stickers or separate the PASS and FAIL products by routing them to a different conveyor level. SCU-439 and FMM-440 meet CE and IPC-SMEMA-9851 standards.
