Neo Light PLUS is an innovative storage solution designed specifically for SMT reels. This advanced system combines the convenience of Pick to Light technology with the added benefit of location sensors for material detection. It significantly improves over traditional SMT reel storage solutions and provides numerous benefits for electronics manufacturers.
One of the key features of Neo Light PLUS is its use of Pick to Light technology. This technology enables operators to quickly and easily locate and pick the correct SMT reel for each step of the manufacturing process. This results in faster production times and increased efficiency.
Another advantage of Neo Light PLUS is the addition of location sensors. These sensors detect when a reel has been added or removed from the storage rack and can save time during the SMT material picking and putting process by eliminating the need for manual location verification.
Neo Light PLUS can store up to 1400 reels per rack, significantly increasing storage capacity compared to traditional SMT reel storage solutions. This can help manufacturers manage their component inventory more efficiently and reduce the risk of stockouts and production delays.
A well-organized storage system can help streamline the manufacturing process by making it easier to find and access the components needed for each process step. This can result in faster production times and higher overall efficiency.
In addition to improving quality control and enhancing productivity, SMT reel storage also provides better inventory management. With a proper storage system, manufacturers can keep track of their component inventory more easily. This helps ensure that the right components are on hand when they are needed, reducing the risk of stockouts and production delays.
The Neo Light Plus picking process is a smart and efficient method and it typically involves the following steps:
The process of placing items in the Neo Light Plus smart rack system with location sensors involves the following steps:
The worker physically places the item in any slot of their choice.
The location sensors detect the presence of the item in the slot.
The system updates the inventory in real-time, adding the item to the available stock.
The worker confirms the placement and the system updates the inventory status.
Note: Although the worker can place the item in any slot, it is recommended to follow the storage location calculated by the system for optimized inventory management and efficient picking processes.
