A leading SMT equipment manufacturer has concluded an important contract with Essemtec AG for the supply of 100 Cubus systems to be delivered in the coming 12 months. The first systems have been delivered to Southeast Asia and to multiple sites in Europe.
Cubus is the newly released next generation of SMT storage system designed to reduce inventory and thus reduce working capital. With its flexible shelf configuration, foolproof operation and easy line integration, it easily adapts to the ever-changing manufacturing environments. Thanks to its small footprint and high storage capacity (up to 932 reels), the Cubus can be positioned close to any SMT manufacturing line. The Cubus interfaces easily with pick-and-place machines and, thus, greatly reduces kitting time and errors as well as machine interruptions due to missing or misplaced material.
This contract is a great success for Essemtec: "We are very pleased that our newly developed storage system has convinced our customers so quickly. I congratulate our engineering and manufacturing team for their outstanding contributions. This large multi-million dollar order is a strong vote of confidence in the quality and productivity of Essemtec products and will spur further growth for us," commented Dr. Frank Bose, Essemtec AG´s Managing Director.
