Accu-Assembly Inc., a leading industrial automation company, received two 2020 GLOBAL Technology Awards in the categories of Labeling Equipment for its new AccuID and Storage Systems for the AccuStock™. The awards were announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2020.
The new AccuID bench top system has been designed to easily produce a unique Reel ID barcode label for each SMT component reel than having an operator scan one label at a time using a hand scanner. The operator does not have to decide which barcode labels to scan resulting in fewer scan errors. The AccuID has a simple user interface: the operator places the reel in the system and the scan begins automatically.
Additionally, AccuID can be used for incoming inspection to verify the accuracy of the barcode labels on the reel. Applications include creating and printing a unique SMT component reel ID barcode label for: inventory systems, SMT placement equipment verification systems, and traceability.
AccuStock™ is a fully automatic SMT reel component storage and retrieval system (ASRS) and the first TOTAL Automatic Storage and Retrieval System for different sizes of SMT component reels. Requiring minimal operator assistance, AccuStock accurately stores and retrieves up to 8,000 reels of different diameters and thicknesses, all in one machine.
Unlike other storage systems requiring user to place reels a few at a time into the storage system, users can place up to 150 reels of components into the AccuStock™ input stacking loader and just walk away.
The GLOBAL Technology Awards have recognized the very best new innovations in the printed circuit assembly and packaging industries since 2005. The prestigious awards contest has been bringing together the global SMT and advanced packaging industry in a celebration of the companies and people that are achieving the highest standards and driving our industry forward.
