They appear to be identical. But every chip is unique. A typical task for the Hänel Lockomat®.
When components that look identical, such as microchips, are to be stored and retrieved in the same system, the danger of mix-ups is high. With the Hänel Lockomat® there is no need for time-consuming labeling of components. Each chip type is kept in a package marked with a barcode and put into a storage location with the same code in the Lockomat®. When the barcode has been scanned in from the pick list, the required package is brought to the user by a fully automated procedure.
No mix-ups possible!
Each package is safely stored behind a specific electromagnetically locked compartment door. And only this door opens. Only when the retrieval process is completed, the package is back in its storage location and the door is closed, will the next door open.
