Inventory knowledge is essential for modern industry. Whether you are a SMT manufacturer, supplier or broker, live assurance of correct inventory in your MRP system at all times minimizes stock, labor, errors and costs ensuring customer confidence and trust to keep SMT lines running efficiently.
Assure is intelligent, simple, fast, and trustworthy, enabling you to increase productivity, minimize component shortage and SMT line downtime, multiple set-ups and expensive additional component procurement and safety stock.
Intelligent: Counting components should not require hours of programming. Assure is a true plug-and-play solution which uses advanced algorithms to identify new components and does not rely on libraries or reliance on “cloud-only” support.
Simple: One button operation and an intuitive touchscreen interface means users can learn Assure within minutes. Installation is easy with an exceptionally small footprint and system weight.
Fast: Optimized for speed, Assure counts components fast regardless of how full or empty the reel is. Process inventory sooner and minimize labor time and cost.
Trust: Assure validates results immediately and automatically with accuracy exceeding 99.9% on most components, guaranteeing the quality of the count and simultaneously updating your ERP and inventory storage systems.
