Juki Automation Systems (JAS), Inc. has announced that the ISM2000 Fortress can now support both 32 and 44 mm size reels. The Fortress is the newest and largest of the ISM family that guarantees to keep components safe while providing easy and intelligent management of component inventory. Additionally, all ISM2000 Fortress models will be bundled to include ESD package certification and humidity control as standard features of this system.
Designed for the optimal management of larger dimension reels, the Fortress offers the flexibility to support a combination of 7" reels from 8-16 mm in height, 13"/15" reels up to 44 mm in height as well as JEDEC trays. The Fortress uses a patented multiple outlet system that allows for the simultaneous extraction and insertion of up to 27 reels at a time. The outlet system also supports the extraction of a single reel in quick fashion.
The Fortress supports a humidity control module that makes it possible to control and monitor humidity, and maintain an internal environment with humidity of less than five percent. This makes it possible to store all sensitive components safely, and the life of each component can be monitored in terms of humidity using the software interface. The Fortress will trace all movements of the component and automatically calculate the exposure time beyond the set limits while notifying the operator and blocking the component if the maximum limit has been exceeded.
