How to store your electronic components?

smt reel rack

There are a list of question in front of you before decision making:

  • Floor space utilization.
  • Labor costs vs. investment
  • Real time inventory control
  • Material throuput
  • Smt reel and tap
  • MSL control
  • System integration to existing IT structure
  • ESD safe
  • Storage cart ,dry box, SMD rack, reel shelving or intelligent SMD storage system,
  • and many more.

4V considerations

In fact smt reel rack there are 4V( velocity, volume, value, variety) that will be useful for decision making structure.Velocity: How quick you want to store and pick the smt reel material?Volume : electrical component volume to be stored in your automatic component storage system, maybe smt reel rack likes.Value: what is return on investment you are expecting? Variety: reel tap, tray ,MSD ,PCB ,what else you want to manage and automate?


Lean manufacturing is a production method aimed primarily at reducing times within the production system as well as response times from suppliers and to customers. The term “Lean consist of five key principles: Precisely specify value by specific product, identify the value stream for each product, make value flow without interruptions, let customer pull value from the producer, and pursue perfection. Neotel help you achieve lean material control!

The term work-in-progress (WIP) is a production and supply-chain management term describing partially finished goods awaiting completion. In SMT industry WIP refers to the electronics materials, labor, and overhead costs incurred for products that are at various stages of the production process.


Neo Light Plus is powered by SMF software. SMF: Smart Material Flow is the software suite from Neotel Technology for controlling and automate electronics materials. It can cover all your materials needs: Materials receiving, Automated material storage/retrieval system, AGV control, Component counting, Kitting, etc.
