Inovaxe, a world leader and provider of innovative material handling and inventory control systems, will exhibit at the SMTA Space Coast Expo & Tech Forum, scheduled to take place Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015 at the Melbourne Auditorium in FL. The company will highlight its Intelligent Ultra-Lean Total Material Handling and Storage Solution that addresses the challenges of dealing with SMT parts and kits within the stockroom and WIP locations.
Inovaxe will showcase its InoAuto-147/2 half size SMART Storage System that stores 560 7" 8mm SMT reels. The cart is equipped with sensors and LED indicator lights, along with the InoAuto Locator software, and responds as if the reels have RFID on them. The operator will simply barcode scan the part number and quantity on a reel and place it into an empty Single Package Single Location slot. The InoAuto will report the position of the part to its database automatically.
The user can quickly enter a part number or a pick list into the InoAuto computer and a LED will light up indicating each part location within the cart. The user can either have all of the locations required light up at one time, or just one location at a time to prioritize the pick list pull for a very quick reel pull to direct feeder location. As the user picks the parts, the InoAuto will identify the part number for the part that was removed on the screen. As a result, kitting function is reduced from hours to seconds. Additionally, the InoAuto SMART Cart eliminates the need to scan locations.
The cart is mobile, ESD compliant, 5 ½ feet tall, and has a small 5 ½ ft2 print, which is a fraction of the size of robotic towers with five times the throughput. The InoAuto SMART Cart can pay for itself within three to six months.
Panasonic also offers the InoAuto SMART Storage System as part of its “Total Solutions beyond SMT”— a continuation from its “Any Mix Any Volume” theme.
