Juki has announced an intelligent storage system, ISM UltraFlex 3600, now providing automatic kitting for the next run on placement machines. Providing the ultimate flexibility, the system communicates with the placement system when a reel of parts is low.
The ISM UltraFlex 3600 builds on the strengths of its ISM 2000 predecessor, with even higher speed/throughput, powerful software that is constantly improved with new features; and an intuitive interface, now fully on touchscreen devices. The new machine and case designs enable the ISM UltraFlex 3600 to store a maximum number of 3600 7-8mm reels, but can automatically accept any mix of reel sizes.
During idle time, the machine will automatically sort cases to optimise the distribution of reels of different formats, always providing the maximum possible storage capacity. The ISM UltraFlex 3600 offers unsurpassed ROI.
