Solutions for SMT Material Handling and Accuracy Issues



InoAuto Smart Cart Units

Our InAuto units feature storage for 1,120 seven inch reels with light-up identifiers to find your parts required in seconds.


Our InoAuto Smart cart stores 1,120 of your seven inch SMT reels and lights up to identify the parts required.  You can either have the cart light up all of the parts required for your kit, or it can light up one at a time to walk you through your pick list.  It even blinks and stops you from proceeding with your pull, if you accidently pull the wrong part.  The InoAuto cart can be quickly located right next to your feeders or your SMT line to load directly from stock to WIP or the SMT line.  Your parts for the kits are identified in seconds versus hours and the InoAuto cart can pay for itself within three to six months.  The InoAuto software simply allows you to add, remove, or transfer parts.  You can also import a pick list.

InoAuto Cart is offered as a SMART or a PASSIVE Cart.

The InoAuto Smart carts come with the InoAuto locator software, a bar code scanner, computer, light pipes, and electronics for automatically detecting part locations. 

The InoAuto Passive carts come with the InoAuto locator software, a bar code scanner, computer, and bar code labels for locating parts. 

The main difference between an InoAuto SMART and an InoAuto PASSIVE cart is that you do not need to barcode scan part locations when you place or remove a reel, and a LED lights up to identify the reel location versus finding the part locations from a pick list.   

Each of the InoAuto carts, whether SMART or Passive, can be configured as follows:

Model IA7000 Full size cart stores 1,120 Small, 7 inch, 8mm reels

Model IA700 Half size cart stores 560 Small, 7 inch, 8mm reels

Model InoBin Half size cart stores 70 mechanical bins, with the ability to store loose or bagged mechanical components and other odd-form items. The sensors and LEDs at each bin location allow us to track when components are added or removed, and to signal the operator which bin contains the desired components.
