Error-free retrieval of SMD reels

Case Study - Rohde & Schwarz

Rohde & Schwarz is based in Munich, Germany with a presence in over 70 countries. Started 85 years ago, they are a leading supplier of solutions in the fields of test and measurement technology; radio; radio monitoring and location technology; and secure communication.

Rohde & Schwarz needed to optimize the setup process for populating electronic assembly groups with SMDs. The aim was to ensure a fast, simple, and error-free retrieval of SMD reels for downstream production.

This case study demonstrates how Kardex helped Rohde & Schwarz:

- achieve 100% error-free retrieval of SMD reels for the set-up / removal process

- increase throughput by 50% without changing staffing requirements

- ensure permanent (real-time) delivery
