Icy Dock introduces the MB990SP-B, a new tool-free mounting bracket that lets you install two 2.5" SSD/HDD devices in a 3.5" bay.
With a very tight economy and the demand for cheaper and faster computers on the rise cost needs to be saved where ever it can. One of the major contributors to cost is labor. To cut cost and labor the MB990SP-B is a perfect and affordable way for, computer manufactures, computer makers, Industrial PC makers, or system builders to ease computer assembly.
With the major advances in computer storage devices, drives are becoming smaller and the 2.5" form factor is becoming the new standard for storage devices. When using 2.5" drives with generic PC cases most of the time you need to use a 2.5" to 3.5" bracket to property mount the drive in the case. The problem with traditional style brackets are the amount of screws needed and most importantly the time spent installing all of the screws. With most brackets on the market using about 12 screws to install 2 x 2.5" drive into a 3.5" bay, time can add up especially on a major production line.
The benefits to using the MB990SP-B on a production line can help reduce cost on labor in assembling computers. The MB990SP-B easily installs into a standard 3.5" bay with no screws to attach. Another feature that can be utilized in computer assembly is the ability to mount 2 x 2.5" drives in a single 3.5" bay with no screws. When using the older screw type brackets 12 screws would need to be used to mount 2 x 2.5" drives in an ATX tower case. The MB990SP-B also makes installing additional drives to your system or regular maintenance a snap with the screw-less design. Also upgrading to the new popular SSD is as easy as sliding in the new drive. The MB990SP-B uses absolutely no screws and is tool less, cutting time down more than 30 seconds per installation in a production line opposed to the traditional bracket style system. The time saved can add up in a production line environment. Cutting time can increase productivity equating to more units produced. Most importantly, the labor and maintenance cost.
The MB990SP-B is the affordable and quick way to cut labor cost in a production line environment with out sacrificing rigidity.
