VJ Electronix Debuts Reel Handling Automation


Reading time ( words)

VJ Electronix, Inc. demonstrated a new concept in reel handling automation for component counting at the recent IPC APEX EXPO.

VJ Electronix coupled its leading automatic component counting system with a high-speed, three axis robot to transfer reels from an input storage buffer, into the X-ray counting system, and back to an output storage buffer. The integrated bar code camera reads one or more barcodes at the input buffer, prior to loading. Labels may be applied at the output buffer. 

 “Our new robot approach is truly flexible,” said VJE Engineering Manager, Steve Bowler. “We can incorporate most any brand of robot, add multiple buffers, and/or integrate directly with commercial storage systems. I can imagine creation of a docking station for our customers’ AGVs.”

Built in VJE’s Chelmsford, MA factory, the robotic reel handling system is a collaborative effort between VJE Chelmsford, VJE Suzhou China, and VJE’s Technology Partner, AccuAssembly.
