Teledyne EMS is a full service contract manufacturer specializing in defense, commercial aviation and industrial electronics.
Vistamation is an industrial systems integrator based in Southern California who sells advanced storage systems, starting with basic warehouse rack and shelving and up to Carousel AS/RS.
With the move of Teledyne’s microelectronics division from Marina del Rey, Calif., to their 170,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Lewisburg, Tenn., Teledyne is now able to perform the tasks of both locations in Lewisburg.
“We’ve retrofitted 25,000 square feet of our facility to house the microelectronics production,” declares Shane Green, Teledyne EMS vice president and general manager. “Through lean processes and elimination of waste, we were able to consolidate activities in that section of the building and free up that floor space to allow the movement and construction of the microelectronics facility.”
Part of the lean processes include the implementation of a Nitrogen Purge Vertical Carousel System featuring Vista-Seal Door System©, a Vistamation product. The Vista-Seal Door System© provides a means to seal the access opening of vertical carousels for the storage of electronic components and subassemblies that require a nitrogen purged environment to ensure a non-oxidizing storage media. This type of storage is essential in aviation, defense, and electronics industries.
Vertical carousels are suited for consolidating the storage of like sized parts in a small footprint. To access stored materials, the user selects a part from the control interface or through optional application software. Once selected, the carousel rotates via the shortest route and presents part at an ergonomic working height. Because the vertical carousel "footprint" occupies a relatively small area, the cubic utilization is unmatched, while inventory control and accuracy are enhanced. “The application of this product (Vista-Seal Door System© brings vertical carousels into the electronic component storage market previously dominated by antiquated dry box technology.” Says Gregory Amos, CEO of Vistamation Inc.
Vistamation has a very wide presence, shipping products throughout the world. Their offerings include advanced carousel and conveyor systems, but also more basic facilities items such as shelving & lockers.
