The complete MSL warehouse was vacuum sealed and stored in racks on the warehouse floor.

A Dry Storage room, made to measure, to keep SECO’s MSL components in best conditions.

The challenge

Before the installation of the Dry Room at SECO in Italy, their complete MSL warehouse was vacuum sealed and stored in racks on the production floor. To save valuable time SECO was looking for a safe storage space solution to store all reels in a controlled way without having to seal them first. The solution must be able to hold all their racks and keep this environment <5% RH for safe storage.

The Result

A Dry Storage Room, made to measure, to keep SECO’s MSL components in best conditions. Previously all MSL components were vacuum packed, which took a lot of time and attention, now they can be stored without packaging in the Dry room. The Return On Investment (ROI) of this project, according to SECO’s own calculations, will be way less than 3 years . This project is realized together with our Italian partner I-TRONIK.

Because Totech Dry Rooms guarantee the same conditions as the drying cabinets but with more space. Therefore they are easy to access and time efficient for certain processes. SECO no longer has to worry about the vacuum packaging for their components when stored in the production area.

Storage of moisture sensitive components

The storage and conditioning of moisture-sensitive components is important in the production process. To guarantee the reliability and quality of their products SECO uses the knowledge and storage solutions of Totech. To store components & PCB’s under the right conditions SECO chose a Dry Room from our SDR Series, this is a custom made solution that is assembled on the customer site. These modular rooms have energy efficient insulated walls and are perfect for safe storage <5%RH or drying <1% RH.

100% compliant with ipc/jedec J-STD-033D equal to Dry Cabinet at 5% RH equivalent to MBB with unlimited shelf life.
