Essemtec Cubus Tray Box Storage Allows the Management of Thousands of Parts

Essemtec, the Swiss manufacturer of production systems for electronic assembly and packaging, announces that its Essemtec Cubus Tray Box storage feature allows the management of thousands of parts beyond typical SMT components.

In the past the Cubus has been used primarily for SMT component reel storage. It has excellent software with a complete data management package that interfaces with both the production line as well as MRP systems. Recently, Essemtec customers have been using the Cubus equipped with tray boxes to store, manage and retrieve a wide variety of items ranging from loose bagged components and parts to hardware and batteries. For regular SMT components a Cubus L can store up to 1100 Jedec trays or 1740 7” reels.

With Cubus, the next-generation storage solution, users can reconfigure the internal layout of the system at any time to adapt to individual, up-to-date needs. The unique Cubus software, eStorage, allows users to map and recalibrate the new layout in less than 20 minutes. The small system footprint of the Cubus makes the system one of the most compact, yet efficient, flexible storage solutions.

The Cubus can be used as a total automated SMD storage solution for small to mid-size companies as well as automated material replenishment units for high to super high-speed lines. According to studies more than 60 percent of production line stops comes from logistics issues; the correct material is not in the right place when required. Cubus will reduce this stoppage time by 95 percent.
