Leading Midwest contract manufacturer
to debut new test capabilities at MD&M West

Computrol, Inc., a world-class provider of mid- to low-volume, high-mix electronic manufacturing services to OEMs, will exhibit in Booth #524 at MD&M West, scheduled to take place Feb. 7-9, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center in CA. Computrol is certified to ISO 9001-2008, ISO 13485 specific to medical device quality systems, AS9100 specific to military and aerospace quality systems, IPC class II and III and J-STD certified as well as being ITAR registered and lead-free RoHS compliant.

Over the past year, Computrol has upgraded its two state-of-the-art facilities with more than ten new advanced systems to keep up with its customers' needs. Some of Computrol's new capabilities include the Spea 4050 Flying Probe, a Nordson DAGE Ruby FP X-ray system, two MV-7 OMNI 3D In-Line AOI Machines from MIRTEC at each facility, three KY-8030-3 in-line, fully automated SPI systems from Koh Young Technology, and more.

Computrol's electronics contract manufacturing expertise allows customers to realize significant improvements in cycle time, asset utilization, reliability, flexibility, and responsiveness. These objectives are achieved through integration of modern systems and processes, highly skilled and experienced people, fact-based process management, and continuous improvement.

Computrol, Inc. speeds up production times with the
installation of five new intelligent component storage systems

Computrol, Inc.,  has installed five Europlacer LZero3 Component Storage Systems at its Meridian facility. The Lzero3 networks with existing MRP/ERP systems and pick-and-place machines to efficiently pick and restock factory works orders. As a result, Computrol's assembly operation has begun to realize additional production efficiencies from what will be the largest Europlacer Warehouse Management Solution (WMS) implementation in the USA, to date.

The first phase of the installation was completed last month. The installation centers around five Europlacer Lzero3 cabinets - all highly configured and integrated into a single storage platform.
  Europlacer's WMS software is at the heart of every effective line-side integration, and, is fully integrated into Computrol's ERP domain.

"Our recent addition of five Europlacer LZERO 3 Automated Storage Systems in the SMT parts warehouse has shown a great reduction in the kitting time for SMT parts per work order, from hours to minutes," stated Randy Smith, Computrol's Materials Manager. The low volume SMT parts have been placed on new shelving with bar coded locations and will be scanned into the Europlacer LZERO 3 software so that all SMT parts are tracked on the same system, and Computrol will achieve the same benefit.

The Lzero3 SMT storage equipment cabinet is part of Europlacer's highly flexible and expandable range of component storage solutions that intelligently manage inventory items for near-production deployment. Europlacer offers three variants, with the Lzero3 being reconfigurable and the ability for Computrol to expand the systems on-site to allow the automatic SMT storage capability to adapt to future changes in the company's inventory profile.

"We also expect that this system will virtually eliminate parts being put away in the wrong location," added Smith. "This will keep our material handlers from spending additional time looking for misplaced parts."
