Automated Inventory Control & Storage System for Surface Mounted Devices and MRP/ERP systems LZERO3

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. The Lzero3 networks with existing MRP/ERP systems and pick and place machines to efficiently pick and restock factory works orders.

Europlacer offers three variants, with the Lzero3 being reconfigurable and expanded on-site to allow the automatic SMT storage capability to adapt to future changes in inventory profile.


The Lzero3 delivers 1600 < 2000 different SMD reels and allows the simultaneous insertion and extraction of up to 36 reels of 7-inch profile, or up to 27 reels of mixed 7-inch & 15-inch profiles. This helps operators to set up production seamlessly and accurately.

Unlike other solutions, Lzero3 does not require the cost or complication of additional storage boxes to hold component reels. It removes one more variable from the efficiency equation as you don’t need to calculate how many storage boxes you will need to buy before you can use your storage system. Or how you’ll store the empty boxes while production is in process. Lzero3 is able to manage all reel formats without fuss or compromise.

An option for the SMT storage equipment Lzero3 is to fit an absorption module to store components sensitive to humidity (Moisture Sensitive Devices – MSDs). It achieves and maintains a controlled environment of less than five percent Relative Humidity.

The module allows permanent RH control, physical tracking of the exposure time (the time for which the device is exposed to the ambient atmosphere), and calculates the remaining “Floor Live Time” for MSDs to define the residual time left in the ambient atmosphere before specifications are exceeded.
