The Buff er unit is designed to balance station-capacity differences by offering board escape possibilities in case of failures or slow board flow in the connected systems.
The FIFO/LIFO capability and the ‘pass through’ function, that disables board buffering and allows the boards to pass through the unit without being buffered, gives the unit a wide range of uses.
Buffer full warning level, start slot, stepping and pass through slot is selectable. All input is made through the operators panel that makes the unit easy to operate. Motors, cables, PLC and associated control electronics are located behind steel covers. The covers are mounted on the base frame, which is manufactured from welded steel.
