What Is A Smart Factory?Leaping forward from traditional machine automation, the Smart factory deploys smart manufacturing technologies for Industry 4.0. Physical machines are fitted with smart sensors and are connected to a cloud network where it uses data from connected operations and production systems to learn and adapt to spontaneous situations and make real-time decisions.
Imagine your machines telling you when their temperature is out of desired levels, and you are able to receive alert notifications through your mobile device. This will greatly reduce 30-50% of unscheduled machine downtime, troubleshooting time & maintenance costs while accelerating productivity & machine efficiency.
EcoStruxure™ Augmented Operator Advisor (AOA)The AOA is a custom application that puts real-time information at your fingertips, whenever and wherever it is needed. You get immediate access in the field to instant data diagnosis, user manuals, instructions, diagrams etc. This helps to improve operational efficiency with augmented reality, enabling operators to superimpose the current data & virtual objects onto a machine, or plant.
-Improve operations & maintenance efficiency
-Reduce operations & maintenance time & cost
-Reduce operator errors during maintenance activity
-Better support and easier information delivering
IOT Monitoring & System AlertIOT Monitoring & System Alert is a cloud-connected monitoring and control system for plants & machines. It can detect issues that generate predictive maintenance alerts, so service staff can be dispatched to remedy problems before they cause a failure.
-Machine Andon to notify management, maintenance, and other workers of a quality or process problem
-Quality Statistical Process Control (SPC) to monitor process behavior & find solutions for production issues
-Predictive Maintenance before and when equipment failure occurs
Additive ManufacturingAdditive manufacturing in 3D printing technology has advanced the design power of prototyping for new products. It helps to churn out a greater range of prototypes, maintenance spare parts, jigs, fixtures, and assemblies for customized end products in all desired shapes & designs.
- Quality can be as good as the original parts
- Faster availability of maintenance spare part
- Faster feedback for prototypes
- Cheaper alternative for specific imported spare parts and jigs
