SIPLACE Feeder Manager: Feeder pool transparency lowers costs

Mar 24, 2010 | The SIPLACE software solution provides all the features they need: inventory management and localization, maintenance cycle and repair cost monitoring, as well as feeder status and history reports. With the help of this software, electronics manufacturers can now optimize their feeder inventory, organize their preventive feeder maintenance and keep accurate records of each feeder’s maintenance and repair history.
