Cluso InvMan SMT Smart Storage System

From Spectrum SMT

Spectrum SMT has been appointed as distributors for the highly innovative Cluso InvMan SMT smart storage system which has been making huge strides in the streamlining of inventory management in electronics manufacturing.

Cluso beats all other existing systems:


  • It accommodates multi-user simultaneous picking and stocking components. No queues waiting to access the system.
  • Fully flexible storage in both width and height allowing change of storage from 7” to 15” (S1 only) and different reel widths (S1 & S2) without having to specify when ordering the system.
  • Total traceability from component arrival in the factory to depletion. You know where the components have been used from the interface. It also shows when a reel is depleted so no time wasted searching for that phantom reel.
  • Allows storage of both reel and loose components.

“It was the best investment we have made in the last 5 years, the product is excellent, the customer support is great and I would not hesitate in recommending the system to any company looking at an affordable electronics component storage system.”

Smart Inventory Management

The Cluso InvMan SMT storage system transforms your warehouse to a smart inventory management system that saves time & money and improves productivity and efficiency.

InvMan delivers outstanding productivity by:

  • Simplifying receiving, storage and retrieval
  • Eliminating kitting
  • Automatically monitoring stock levels
  • Enforcing First-In-First-Out
  • Delivering full traceability
  • Reducing warehousing space significantly
  • Automatic detection through use of IR beams and sensors
  • No wait time as multi-user capable
  • Extremely fast set up on feeders direct from inventory storage

This is SMT reel storage designed to be as flexible as possible with the ability to adjust the location width at any time to accommodate any size reel in less than 3 seconds. To store a reel it is as easy as scanning any empty location and scanning the component barcode number.

Barcode Scanner PDA

Unlike other systems, this SMT smart storage system allows up to 10 users to store, search and equip at one time. Handheld PDA’s give instant access to stock, each user is colour coded for easy recognition. The PDA runs a custom application giving the ability to scan barcodes to store, find, pick and take pictures of inventory for identification.

“The Cluso system makes it much easier for our pick-and-place technicians to put together a kit of reels, tubes, and trays – no more hunting for the right reel from a bin full of reels, or struggling to find a reel that was stored out of sequence. Our storage area now takes up about half the floor space it took before. The trolleys are well constructed, roll easily into position, and look great. Installation and start-up are straightforward, and support from the Cluso team was excellent.”
