For value-conscious companies that wish to keep their safe storage of components & PCBs in-house but need an alternative to the capital investment typically required, Super Dry Totech has launched a new “Dry Air Only” solution.
Founded under the principle that businesses should always have access to the latest technologies, and great customer service but only as and when they need it, the Dry Air Only service is designed for those looking to avoid the costs of owning, maintaining, and servicing their own moisture management equipment.
There’s no up-front investment, nor are there any potential costly charges for maintenance down the line either. Costs of ownership such as depreciation, interest and calibration are avoided. Customers pay a fixed regular amount to the company to manage their entire component & MSD storage environment –only paying for the ‘dry air’ used. It provides the most efficient and cost effective ‘dry air’ possible.
Migrating from a Dry Cabinet purchase to a Dry Air service model in which the company maintains ownership of the equipment, the customer benefits by paying only for the service they require and use, and it is an easy option to adapt or upgrade to different technology as demands change.
The experts of the company conduct a detailed analysis of requirements and after carefully defining the exact environment required, including humidity, temperature, recovery time and traceability, the consumer receives the appropriate storage paying only for the dry air – as it is consumed. One fixed monthly price ensures accurate planning, both financially and operationally. The specialized engineering team can also help users develop procedures to solve storage and floor life issues.
Using the company’s traceability software, accurate records of the environment are readily available, including door openings and regeneration cycles. Real time monitoring can also automatically notify designated staff of any alarm conditions. Component tracking software enables comprehensive control of component inventory, either integrated with existing ERP and MES systems or used in a standalone fashion.
The company also provides online user guides and troubleshooting to get personnel proficient in the principles of safe storage practices.
