SMD Tower Intelligent material handling
A modern, near-production
The SMD Tower is an automated, highly flexible and expandable buffer storage unit designed for deployment near the production line. In the SMD Tower, the right component is in the right place in a controlled environment – ready for quick and smooth changeovers in your SMT line. You can even store your most frequently used components with an Agilis feeder attached!
No more mix-ups
Regardless of whether you need a single reel or tray, or need to automatically process a complete kitting list, the system records every movement. It keeps track of all stored reels and component quantities automatically. A unique identification code ensures that the right component is always provided or stored, making mix-ups almost impossible. Return-to-storage is just as quick and convenient.
Compact near-production storage
The SMD Tower closes a gap in flexible SMD manufacturing, where up until now reels had to be physically found and retrieved, one at a time, from space-consuming and inflexible storage systems. The SMD Tower needs barely one square meter of floor space to store up to 658 reels, and it can be integrated into existing material handling systems.
