Super Dry Logistics Management Systems Expand their Flexible Automation


Reading time ( words)

Moisture control specialist Super Dry Totech's latest generation of robotically automated component storage systems will be showcased at productronica this November. Super Dry Totech will be at Hall A3 Booth 277.

A Global Technology Award winner, the Totech Dry Tower incorporates complete moisture management, floor life reset and traceability of MSL components, in addition to optimizing the storage demands of different sized reels and trays, operator-free.

Businesses are striving for more flexible automation and digitalization of processes, symbolized by ever expanding Industry 4.0 initiatives including sophisticated track and trace logistics throughout the entire supply chain. Relentless attention to the elimination of routine manual tasks and higher efficiencies within existing shop floor constraints is a fundamental and essential element of competitiveness, survival and growth.

Super Dry robotically controlled Dry Storage Management Systems have demonstrated their ability to serve these needs and greatly aid making the vision of mass customization in Smart Factories a reality. The next generation of Totech Dry Tower is now expanding its pinpoint automation beyond the four walls of the automated, environmentally controlled warehouse to provide the automated delivery of goods directly to assembly lines in a more flexible manner than ever before. Fixed conveyors and operators are being replaced with a variety of more cost saving, and quickly changeable methods that can utilize existing factory layouts.

Goods incoming, Feeder preparation, line prep and replenishment, emergency components, delivery to support stations and return to floor life protective storage are examples of essential manufacturing process flow events. The Dry Towers’ Autonomous Indoor Vehicle (AIV) systems, developed and integrated by Asys, accomplishes these tasks, further reducing the need for operators in those areas of the manufacturing process. At the same time, they provide a flexible buffering of product flow, ensuring that feeding production can be a priority, eliminating bottlenecks and accelerating the smooth logistics flow.

On the stand at productronica, Asys will showcase solutions for the automation of the entire material flow in a modern electronic manufacturing facility. The company has developed a modular, expandable logistics concept, which consists of three main components: Centralized Component Bearing, Autonomous Indoor Vehicles (AIV) and Material Stations. All system components communicate with each other via the ASYS software solution PULSE and pass on the respective orders.

Poor Supply Chain Management Will Cost You Money

04/27/2018 | Stephanie Weaver, Zentech Manufacturing Inc.
Supply chain management goes far beyond merely keeping track of all the SKUs currently on sale. It also means tracking the parts going into the products, since those parts are also potentially going to be used for post-sale support if necessary. If you can't trust your components to be legitimate and trustworthy, backed by a solid chain-of-possession, then every aspect of your electronics operation may be in jeopardy.

Industry 4.0 Concerns

04/27/2018 | Russell Poppe, JJS Manufacturing
The fastest way for manufacturers to achieve growth in a new world of industrial connectivity is to leverage new technologies. A transition to automated data and process management is irrefutable. But, while this heralds smart supply chains that bring enhanced agility, productivity and profitability, many are adopting a "wait and see" approach.
