Cubus by Essemtec


Essemtec logo

The Cubus is a fully automated component storage cabinet for reels and JEDEC trays.  It can also house boxes with various contents from connectors to assembly materials to PCBs, with a total weight of up to 7 lbs per shelf.


The spacing of the shelves is freely user configurable and thus allows you to adapt the cabinet to your changing needs.


Powerful software manages multiple storage locations and interacts with placement machines and MRP/ERP systems.  Integration is easily achieved with a file based data exchange that requires nothing else but a network folder.  Higher sophistication is achieved with an API/DLL to allow SQL database manipulation such as automatic work order loading or consumption reports.  Lastly, Essemtec also offers a Web Services based integration, over http/SOAP which works similarly to a messaging services such as WhatsApp.


The Cubus can be operated as a component warehouse for smaller manufacturers wanting to improve efficiency, by reducing picking time considerably.  Alternatively, the Cubus also serves as “Mini-Market” for high volume lines to avoid any down time due to parts running out.
