The Cubus -- Next Generation SMT Storage device - innovates how SMT components are stored and provisioned for electronic manufacturing. For the first time, a storage device is fully user configurable and thus adapts to the ever changing manufacturing needs. There are no limitations in terms of reel sizes, reel widths or JDEC trays. Secondly, Essemtec's eStorage SW improves provisioning speed many fold while reducing errors and thus increases operational efficiency. Finally, the system seamlessly integrates with ERP, MRP or middle ware systems and also speaks with pick & place machines to automatically replenish feeders.
