Super Dry Totech has constantly redefined the prevention of moisture absorption, oxidation, and intermetallic growth while exceeding the requirements of IPC/JEDEC J-Std-033D. Now, manufacturers can advance their component management processes even further with integrated software tools and intelligent hardware that can track climate, trace components and notify personnel through integration to the ASYS Pulse network. Automated floor life reset, user ID security, component “Pick by Light” and FIFO materials management are just some examples of Super Dry’s Smart Storage Manager’s 4.0 capabilities. Super Dry Smart Storage Manager’s modular construction and standardized interfaces further enable communication with other machines and upward with MES, ERP and OEE systems in the factory.

From benchtop cabinets to walk-in rooms to fully automated warehouse management, Super Dry’s extensive product line now features the Smart Storage Manager and offers the industry’s greatest array of choices to precisely meet its evolving needs. In-situ expansion of capacity is possible with the unique MSD 1222/1223 Modular Dry Cabinets which offer the lowest cost per cubic meter in the industry. Incorporating the powerful, closed-loop controlled U5000 Series Dynamic Dry Unit, the basic MSD can be expanded in the field without the need for additional dry units, offering savings of 50% or more. Super Dry cabinets can dehumidify to less than 0.5% RH. This qualifies them not only for unlimited safe storage but also means they can safely remove moisture, thus resetting floor life without the oxidation induced by traditional baking, even at ambient temperatures. Component floor life restoration can be accelerated with any one of a range of insulated cabinets and walk-in rooms that elevate the temperature to a safe, uniformly controlled 40-60C, and Smart Manager software that will automatically set up and track multiple reset batches.

Other features of the Smart Storage Manager include the tracking component location and floor life expiration as well as reset status. This manually piloted product was derived from that which manages Totech’s fully automated, robotically controlled, component handling and storage system – The Dry Tower. Incorporating proven MSD technology and wide-ranging WMS-System integration capabilities, Dry Towers can manage tens of thousands of reels and trays with real-time monitoring, full traceability and kitting and delivery to assembly lines, helping manufacturers achieve their vision of a smart factory and industry 4.0 goals. Visitors can discuss these and other logistic challenges with Dry Tower experts on the ASYS stand A3-277.

Vacuum packaging remains an important link in the moisture management process chain and Super Dry’s SDV series of vacuum systems with total immersion and sensor-driven control and repeatability are a large step above typical Moisture Barrier Bagging processes.

Super Dry Totech’s expertise with specialist moisture control equipment provides the backbone for its outsourced Long Term Storage Service, LTS², which brings vital long-term component storage solutions into product lifecycle and, along with strategic partner RoodMicrotec, a comprehensive suite of obsolescence management disciplines. For component distributors and those companies that do not wish to make the investment in capital equipment or may be looking for a flexible and scale-able off-site component storage solution, LTS² is the alternative value-added service, helping to overcome challenges that go beyond moisture and oxidation control, including the need to arrest intermetallics without inducing tin whiskers.

Delivering globally to the world’s top tier OEM and EMS companies, and manufacturing in Asia and in Europe, Totech Super Dry has become the industry measure for ultra-low humidity storage cabinets. Proper control of moisture sensitive devices (MSDs) per IPC and JEDEC standards has become more critical than ever since the introduction of lead-free and its higher reflow temperatures. Boasting
