Essemtec announces that it has been awarded a Global Technology Award in the category of Assembly Tools for its Tower Automatic SMD Storage System. The award was presented to Steve Pollock, Vice President of Sales, during a Tuesday, October 26, 2010 ceremony that took place during SMTA International at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL.

Essemtec’s Tower is an automatic storage system for SMD reels and trays. The SMD Tower delivers up to 546 SMD reels or trays and requires 8-12 seconds to dispense any component required. The Tower is recommended in low- or high-volume production. Particularly if batch sizes are low and changeovers are very frequent, the automatic storage system saves time and reduces search trouble. The storage system can be expanded with additional Towers at any time.

The convenient control software takes over all tasks of storing. The software supervises the stock and ensures the use of the “first in first out” principle. Each component can be assigned to a moisture class (IPC-Standard 033A), and the allowable operation time in a wet surrounding is controlled.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
