JAVAD EMS Incorporates New MODI Incoming Goods Scanner to Streamline Receiving

Reading time ( words)

JAVAD EMS (JEMS), a leading global EMS company that provides low to medium volume, high-mix applications, announced that it incorporated the MODI Incoming Goods Scanner into its process. MODI has streamlined JEMS’ receiving processes and embedded into its FIFO based material handling system while eliminating errors.

The new MODI Incoming Goods Scanner eliminates receiving errors, and automates labeling and manual data entry. It is fully integrated with JEMS’ MRP and material handling systems which allows all of the incoming receiving information to be verified and processed within two seconds. Also, it verifies the Moisture Sensitivity Level (MSL) with the existing MSL in JEMS’ database for every incoming Moisture Sensitive Device (MSD) to avoid potential MSL labeling errors. MODI also features a mobile tablet scanner for bulky or heavy items. 

The new MODI Incoming Goods Scanner saves an image of every incoming package for total and complete traceability, and reads barcodes, QR codes and human- readable-only fields with OCR. The image saving is automatically done at the same time of the label data reading and processing. The high-resolution incoming package image enriches JEMS’ already well-established advanced package level traceability solutions.

JEMS established a unique identification (UID) numbering system in 2010 and had been using it for material tracking and identification. By using the new material storage system, the company found that with the benefit of UID, it could leverage its material tracking capability at the package level, throughout the entire material and manufacturing processes. After collaborating with Inovaxe to customize the software, a real-time UID-based WIP scanning system was deployed at JEMS in 2015, which was tailored to its WIP handling processes. 

Margy Khoshnood, VP Sales at Inovaxe, stated: “MODI compliments the Inovaxe smart material handling system at JAVAD, as once the UID label is attached to the reel, there is no scanning required to add it into the closest empty location in the rack. This eliminates operator errors and enhances throughput during the receiving process, which further optimizes the already advanced material handling processes at JAVAD.”

Inovaxe has been JEMS’ material handling solutions partner since 2014, and MODI is a trusted Inovaxe partner. JEMS houses 10 Inovaxe SMT reel and tube storage systems to bridge the connection between material handling systems and machine operation programs.

For many customers, JEMS builds more than 50 PCBs, with many using the same raw components. When building multiple jobs for a customer in a short period of time, efficiently and accurately referencing large amounts of common parts in WIP from job to job became a challenge. In many cases, one job is being taken from the line and the next is scheduled immediately after.
