EQUIPMENT UPGRADE: STORAGE OPTIMIZATION SOLUTION AT TELTONIKA TECHNOLOGY CENTRE
#ems, #update, #manufacturing
At the Teltonika Technology Centre, we have recently integrated the Kardex storage system. This system comprises four Kardex cabinets, with a total of 1904 distinct component storage locations, ensuring seamless storage and retrieval of electronic components.
How We Use Kardex Vertical Buffer Module (VBM)
The Kardex system employs automated storing processes. The vertical lift module inside the system facilitates the movement of boxes, efficiently storing and issuing the required components. This results in a streamlined workflow, minimizing downtime and boosting overall productivity.
The VBM is integrated with Teltonika EMS's internal ERP systems. When components arrive at our facility, the component reels or trays are marked with stickers. After passing the quality check, they are inserted into the Kardex system, and their location is encoded. So, when the SMT line needs to be loaded for a new project, the Surface Mount Technology operator can easily collect all the required components according to the bill of materials for the project.
Benefits of the Kardex Storage System
As our partner and project portfolio expand, the Kardex system will increase the quality of our manufacturing process while simultaneously leaving space for project development.
- Component Freshness Assurance
Kardex operates on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) principle, ensuring that components are used from the oldest to the newest. This guarantees that stored components maintain optimal functionality and shelf life.
- Controlled Environment
Being stored in Kardex, electronic components are ensured to have the best environmental solutions.
