Accu-Assembly Debuts New AccuLIFT

ANDOVER, MA — Accu-Assembly has introduced its new AccuLIFT, an SMT component reel vertical modular storage and retrieval system. The base unit can store up to 3,500 7 in. (17.8 cm) reels, with the ability to store up to 8,000 reels with two additional vertical storage units. Component reels are stored on pallets constructed of a steel frame with ESD plastic trays. The flexible reel configuration enables small and large reels to be interchanged at any position on the pallet.

The AccuLIFT offers quick and easy changeover. The system uses VLM (Vertical Lift Module) technology that has been used reliably to store and retrieve parts for many years. Additionally, the modular system can expand vertically to conserve floor space as customers require additional reel storage.

The system features a dual-level operator reel loading/unloading station, thus reel loading and unloading can take place simultaneously to reduce cycle time. Additional benefits include automatic barcode scanning of all reels on the pallet and automatic reel thickness detection.

Known throughout the industry as a manufacturer of quality assembly products for pick-and-place systems, Accu-Assembly’s core competency is software development and interfacing to various types of databases. The AccuLIFT has a flexible software interface for integration with SMT placement equipment and MES/ERP systems.
