Incoming materials handling station

31 March 2021 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

Through the Material Incoming Station from Essegi Automation’s Storagesolutions.it division, operators can speed up material registration activities, avoid mistakes, and increase the traceability of each individual unique ID.

With its auto-incoming features, it is possible to automatically import information from the supplier’s and/or customer’s label into the ERP system, and print a new unique ID. In fact, after setting the rules for each supplier’s label, the operator can simply position the material on the station and the high-resolution camera will read all the needed codes and information, take a picture for traceability purposes and print the new label.

Moreover, through the included ‘Reels Pictures Traceability’ feature, all pictures will be stored in the database and can be recalled for any future visualisation and quality check. While this tool brings traceability to a higher level of quality standard, it can also provide evidence of damaged or mislabelled material coming from the suppliers.

The table, with its robust folded metal structure, is studied to guarantee adequate load support, along with the demanding standards of an electronics production environment, with the top ESD shelf (made of static dissipative laminate, with 10 MΩ resistivity) and a protective black PVC contour.

The Material Incoming Station needs to be connected to an existing installation where the ISM SMT or THT Server software is running. Connection with other systems (ERP, MES, pick-and-place, etc.) is possible thanks to an API interface that allows any software to communicate and receive information from the Material Incoming Station. Automatic file sharing with other software is also possible.

The camera and software are able to recognise, parse and store any 1D/2D code on the top of the reels. The software is set with standard rules used by most component suppliers to label their products. Any out-of-standard label can be easily read by setting customised rules as long as the codes contain a recognisable indicator (for example, Q2000, where Q stands for quantity).
