Dynamic Source Manufacturing, Inc., a high-volume, fully integrated, leading-edge technology manufacturing and turn-key assembly organization, has recently installed the Nordson Dage Assure X-ray component counter at their Calgary location.
Celebrating its 20th year in business, DSM embraces leading-edge technology when selecting equipment for its state-of-the-art, world-class manufacturing facilities. With its primary focus on printed circuit board assembly, the company also provides mechanical assembly, design for manufacture, and supply chain management services for its strategic customer partners ensuring a steady flow of critical customer assemblies and components via their long-term supplier partnerships.
“Over the past decade it has become apparent that in order for contract manufacturers to stay competitive locally and internationally, selecting quality automation equipment designed into lean, high-volume, efficient assembly processes are paramount. Such investments allow DSM to be agile in its manufacturing planning and processing while ensuring accuracy, quality, and shortened delivery lead times to our customers.” stated by Kevin Falenda, General Manager.
“Additionally, with the continued emergence of IoT4 globally, the Assure X-ray component counter assists DSM on its integration path of ensuring all its factory’s equipment are connected and working together to minimize/eliminate manual labor intensive data processing and line down scenarios by receiving notifications early in the process that can be addressed before they become an issue.”
Business Development Manager from Nordson, Todd O’Neil stated “A company like DSM knows what they want to do from the very beginning making installation a breeze. Immediately after the installation, we were able to connect to 3rd party s/w systems for reel and feeder management, which tied into an inventory control storage system. These features are standard on our machine. Before we left after just two days, their team was able to begin their semiannual inventory and count nearly 2000 reels in a couple of days, and with zero programming. This would have taken weeks using the manual counting method”.
Inventory knowledge is essential for modern industry. Live assurance of correct inventory in an MRP system at all times minimizes stock, labor, errors and costs ensuring customer confidence and trust.
Assure is a fast, simple and reliable way to implement live component inventory management into an organization. The solution increases productivity and minimizes component shortage downtime.
