Positron Technologies Inc. selects Cogiscan RFID smart feeder
May 05, 2005
Positron Technologies Inc. in Montreal, Quebec has selected Cogiscan to implement a complete system for component inventory tracking and machine set up validation on all its SMT lines.
The Cogiscan RFID Smart Feeder technology is installed on the Fuji CP6 and IP3 machines to provide real-time visibility of inventory and automatic line set up validation. This system will help Positron Technologies Inc. to reduce their inventory costs and eliminate waste.
Steve SÃ©guin, Manufacturing Engineering Manager at Positron Technologies Inc.: "We feel that this is a very strategic investment for our new facility. In order to be competitive in the contract manufacturing industry it is critical to optimise material flow on the shop floor and maintain accurate inventory."
"Cogiscan was a logical choice versus other alternatives. One of the unique features of their technology is that it can be integrated with any type of machine. This gives us the convenience of a very high and consistent level of control in a multi-vendor environment." The Cogiscan solutions are robust, highly flexible and they can be deployed quickly. Their expertise and focus on material tracking really shows in the ease-of-use of their product. We have completed the first phase of deployment and we plan to gradually expand use of the system to control other materials throughout our factory."
