The IPC Apex convention and trade show in San Diego from January 24 – 26, 2023 is one of the largest electronics industry events in the field of SMD assembly in the USA. The automation of process sequences within electronics production is also becoming increasingly important in the USA.
The German company MODI will also be on site with its best-selling product “Goods Receipt Scanner” and the generic term ” Goods Receipt 4.0 “. The 4th generation of incoming goods scanners has already become an integral part of European industry.
In the USA, the innovative product is distributed by the company Inovaxe and will also be presented at IPC APEX. The traceability of electronic components in particular will be presented at the Inovaxe stand. MODI’s incoming goods scanner is used to create the database for the special storage systems for component reels from the company. Inovaxe presented. When a component roll is scanned with the MODI incoming goods scanner, all the data on this component roll is automatically transferred to the Inovaxe warehouse system so that the roll can be identified and used later in the warehouse. 100% traceable. This interaction of the individual technologies in combination with the MODI incoming goods scanner has been very well received in the USA for some time and has been further intensified with the 4th generation of the MODI product.
The topic of traceability is also becoming increasingly important in the USA, as Torsten Klawunder, Technical Director of MODI, knows.
“Initial discussions in the USA this year clearly indicate that traceability of components will be a must in the future, especially with pioneering companies such as Tesla or SpaceX. In contrast to Europe, however, the USA is only just getting started with these automated traceability processes. Traceability will really pick up speed here in the coming months… The IPC APEX trade fair can once again be an accelerator and driver… Together with Inovaxe, we want to open many doors here…”
