||DEERFIELD BEACH, FL — December 2012 — Inovaxe, a world leader and provider of innovative material handling and inventory control systems, announces that it recently delivered an InoKit Carrier unit to Mercury Marine’s St. Cloud, FL branch. Cindy Bronson of Mercury Marine was selected in a drawing for the InoKit held during the SMTA International exhibition that took place in Orlando, FL.
InoKit Carriers are an innovative ultra-lean mobile storage solution. The InoKit carriers are effective storage systems for components based on a single package per single location concept. Each InoKit carrier holds up to 78 small SMT component reels or 22 large reels, including some tube storage. The InoKit carriers can be stacked or snapped on to an InoKit rack, which holds up to six InoKit carriers. The InoKit racks are equipped with ESD wheels and with a small footprint of 5-'5.25"H x 2'-1"W x 1'9"D, they can be located wherever material is needed throughout the production plant. The InoKit carriers are designed to organize inventory and organize product kits.
Additionally, Inovaxe representatives presented innovative material handling InoCart and InoView software solutions to demonstrate how Mercury Marine can improve its efficiencies by making it easy to locate parts, pull a kit, return parts, reduce space and improve inventory accuracy. The InoView software is an excellent tool for managing parts and kits within the stockroom and WIP. Part locations can be identified quickly with accuracy and traceability.
