Inovaxe Receives Two NPI Awards for its New SMART Storage Systems

Reading time ( words)

Inovaxe is pleased to announce that it has been awarded two 2018 NPI Awards. The company was awarded in the Storage Systems category for its SMART MSD storage solution and Screen/Stencil Printing Peripherals/Consumables for its SMART Stencil Rack. The awards were presented to the company during a Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2018 ceremony that took place at the San Diego Convention Center during the IPC APEX EXPO.

The SMART MSD Cart improves on Inovaxe’s patented InoMSD Cart by adding intelligence to each individually isolated hive. The SMART MSD Cart detects when a hive is opened and closed, and can light up to indicate to users where an MSD part is located. It automatically registers the time the component is placed or removed from the moisture controlled environment.  When an MSD hive is accessed, the SMART MSD Cart shuts down its air circulation so that no other location sees a rise in humidity. This patented design gives customers true moisture control for their moisture sensitive devices. The SMART MSD Cart can be used in conjunction with Inovaxe’s other smart storage solutions and software, including InoAuto, InoView, and the InoMSD Tracking Software that tracks the life of moisture sensitive parts on the line based on MSL standards.

The new SMART Stencil Storage Cart allows customers to quickly put away and retrieve solder stencils. When putting a stencil away, the customer indicates the stencil number by typing or scanning, and simply adds the stencil into any open location. The SMART Stencil Storage Cart detects where the stencil is placed. When a stencil needs to be retrieved, its location is illuminated, allowing the customer to simply remove the lit stencil.

Premiering in 2008, the NPI Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts.
