Automated storage for electronic parts must satisfy special requirements in the electronics industry. Most electronic components are very sensitive and / or small in size. They need to be stored in a well-organized system so that they are available for production processes quickly and on demand. Automated systems specially designed to store electronic components are in use throughout the electronics industry. Automated carousel or lift systems provide secure and structured storage of various components to ensure fast retrieval when items are needed for dynamic manufacturing processes.
Automated systems can provide inventory storage or buffer storage in production environments. Automated storage systems are controlled and managed with software programs that support fast access to parts and components as needed. Mistakes during put and pick operations are virtually impossible with automated storage systems. Automated storage systems for electronic components function according to the “goods to man” principle and bring the required items directly to the user at the access point.
An automated storage system for electronic components optimizes access processes, thus saving time and making retrieval more efficient and convenient. The system also provides constant and reliable inventory control when used with modern storage management software so that components are always available on demand. Vertical carousels and lift storage systems can be integrated in areas where a small footprint helps reduce space requirements. Since this carousel and lift solutions function according to the “goods to man” principle, items can be stored at extreme heights within the systems, thus utilizing the maximum vertical space available. Furthermore, automated carousel or lift storage systems also contribute to ergonomics and employee safety.
With antistatic coating there is optimal protection for electronic components and devices. To avoid damage caused by electrostatic discharge, electronic devices and components must be handled, packaged and stored in an ESD-protected environment.
Numerous companies in the electronics industry worldwide use vertical carousels to store sensitive electronic devices both in the production hall and in the dispatch warehouse.
Pick and put operations can be booked using a barcode scanner. This guarantees continuous inventory control.
