Why choose SMD handling made easy?

Error-free picking and putting
A 100% error-free simple SMD picking and putting process optimizes production setup processes, increases throughput and guarantees in time delivery.

Flexible storage space
SMD reels of different sizes can be stored in upright or lying position and allocated according to space availability: high storage density.

ESD protection
ESD protection reduces the reject rate in production and storage of electronic components significantly  and therefore cuts costs.

Controlled conditions
SMD components that are moisture sensitive can be stored in dry environment according to component regulations, minimizing exposure outside this special environment and thus preventing damage.

Permanent (real-time) inventory
Constant monitoring of SMD stock levels (standard, purchased, dry storage) and real-time inventory are crucial to guarantee uninterrupted production processes.


Reduced travel time
“Goods to person” principle.

Safety / ergonomics
The Kardex Remstar solution offers increased safety and better ergonomics for employees in electronics production and warehouse.
