INTRODUCING THE NEXT GENERATION OF FACTORY AUTOMATION
Industry 4.0 represents the latest advance in manufacturing capabilities that promise to facilitate innovation, reduce production errors, improve factory performance through decreased downtime and increased output.
Our initiative and commitment to staying at the cutting-edge of emerging technologies mean we will integrate these Industry 4.0 solutions into our processes, enhancing the services we offer our customers. We will bring fine-grained awareness into the machines we design and build.
Our simulation technology allows us to prove out our designs before we go into manufacturing. We can demonstrate that our machines achieve the desired functionality, meet ergonomic standards, and align with timing and capability specifications. This allows us to demonstrate proof of concept and gain a fuller understanding of material and resource costs so that we can provide more accurate quotes and estimates.
We use 3D printing to construct prototypes in the early stages of our machine design process. Working with design specifications from our customers, we print and assemble components to create a representation of the final product. Printed prototypes are another of our proof of concept tools, which we use to demonstrate that our machines can create and assemble the final product within the correct design parameters.
The Internet of Things, used in industrial manufacturing, brings all the disparate digital components of an automated factory together into a centralized monitoring system. Connected devices gives maintenance personnel and factory workers greater insight into the performance of each machine, allowing them to maximize production and conduct preventative maintenance on an optimal schedule.
ADVANCED DATA ANALYTICS
The latest generation of connected devices allows manufacturers to gather more data about their production process than ever before. We can offer feedback in real-time about production performance or even gather all the process data for a serial number matched product birth certificate and retain it for one hundred years
Product Tracing Capabilities Include:
- Data Management
- Product Traceability
- Barcode – 1D and 2D
- DPM (Direct Part Marking)
- Laser and Dot Peen Marking
- Print and Apply
- CFR21 Part 11
- RF Data Tracking
- Product Birth Certification
- Process Recipe Control
- Build to Order
- ILVS (In-Line Vehicle Sequencing)
AR technology has been an asset for operator instruction, both as they assemble components and conduct repairs. Using AR-equipped glasses or camera screens, we can create a digital overlay showing instructions, such as where to insert a widget, or which components need to be replaced.
SmartTrac IoT Suite is an industrial enterprise software which seamlessly integrates Industry 4.0 technologies into a coherent user interface. SmartTrac provides real-time system monitoring, so you can know when parts are about to fail and need replacing. You can also track the production process at every stage, so that you know how well your manufacturing assembly is performing.
Through SmartTrac, you also gain access to a wealth of data analytics and reporting tools, so you can more accurately assess your overall operational effectiveness.
Key Features Include:
- Machine Notifications
- Production Management
- Process Control
- OEE & Downtime Tracking
- Big Data Analytics
- KPI Dashboards and Reporting
- Augmented Reality
