​​​​​​​Inovaxe has designed a mobile smart storage rack with the purpose of storing material required for feeder replenishment during a job’s run. This compact rack is designed to store the components required to replenish one feeder table, or one machine, on the production line. This allows the reels to be quickly and easily accessed by the operator before a feeder has run out, maximizing machine up-time. A small work surface is provided to facilitate feeder loading/reloading or reel splicing. The Replenishment Rack can be used standalone, or with integrations to MES or SMT software to streamline feeder replenishment.

Whether a low-volume kit or a high-volume run, users can keep material loaded in lineside smart racks ready to go. As soon as a new reel is required for a feeder, it can be lit in seconds and ready to be loaded into a new feeder or spliced on to an emptying reel. 

The replenishment rack has a flexible mix of reel storage, handling 7”, 10”, 13”, and 15” reels of various widths, along with a work surface for various tasks like tape splicing and feeder loading. Customers can store splicing tools and materials, and install their own splicing fixtures if desired. Inovaxe also can provide custom solutions for holding feeders on the working surface, allowing operators to pick a reel and load it in a feeder as quickly as possible. 

Combined with Inovaxe’s easy-to-use InoAuto software, these standalone racks can streamline SMT operation, reducing line down occurrences and eliminating operator errors. With Inovaxe’s various integration options, replenishment racks can help close the loop and eliminate the black hole of WIP.
