The PC-6000 is unique in the that nearly all characteristics of your process can be user configured in the field, including changes to process sequence, dwell times, drip times, device times and device status.

The system features a “load screen” which allows users to determine the time of day in which a load will be returned to the unloading station. As the loads are stacked in the matrix, the system tells the user when the load will be picked up and when it will be returned. The user can continually alter the input mix in order to meet production requirements and maximize throughput.
