Track and Trace System for Compressor Assembly Line

Industry: Electronics
Brands: Panasonic, Cognex and Mitsubishi
Case Number: TH-0013 (PM-7) 
Solution: Track & Trace

Problem Statement

The customer need to do the Track & Traceability to the compressor assembly line. They want to know when their customer claimed the defected-compressor that which production line has produced the defected-compressor and which machine is the root of problem then they can stop only one production line or only one machine rather than stop all the production lines.

 

Solution

We propose Track & Traceability system to solve this problem. By using our MITSUBISHI’s Q series Panasonic’s Distance Laser Sensor and our COGNEX’s Barcode Reader. Before install the new tracking system we have to convert customer Mitsubishi’ Melsec A to Mitsubishi’s Melsec Q which it’s more reliable then install the new tracking system. Our system read all the information of compressor for instance rotator-height, coil’s flux value, magnetic value etc., and logging with Mitsubishi’s logging module that related with ID-Code of each compressor itself. So every produced-compressor from this improved-production line could be tracked and traced back.


 

Customer’s Feedback

The result is good, customer is satisfied with our new tracking system. And they will expand the tracking system to others production lines.
