Board Handling

Materials in the right place in the right way and at the right time, just on time. That’s effective manufacturing.

The JOT board handling portfolio covers 100% of material handling needs in fast-paced mass manufacturing. Take as an example segmented conveyors with integrated inspection, transfer conveyors, turn units with the L, T, X function, shuttle gates, lift units, bare board unstackers, magazine buffers, FIFO buffers, line loaders and unloaders.

JOT board handling products are known for high quality; even our first board handling products from the early 90’s are still running production in many factories around the world. Our solutions are fully modular, enabling easy configurations to versatile line configurations. We have the capability to offer optimized solutions based on our world-class production process knowhow for maximum capacity, quality and flexibility. Just to make sure that the solution is a perfect match for your needs.
