Industrial Transformation Asia Pacific 2019 - MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC
Industrial Transformation ASIA-PACIFIC, a HANNOVER MESSE event is Asia-Pacific’s leading trade event for Industry 4.0. The event participated by over 350 exhibitors from 30 countries brings together an ecosystem of manufacturers, government agencies & businesses ranging from multinational corporations (MNC) to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to shape and support their transformation initiatives.
Pumas Automation & Robotics Pte Ltd as Mitsubishi Electric e-F@ctory Alliance partner was invited to participate in this event at Mitsubishi Electric booth exhibiting integration FAS Solutions – [Robotic Sorting Data Collection & Visualization System] consists of iQ Platform Robot with PLC, HMI, Servo, Vision System, Safety Laser Scanner & Vibration Sensor to demonstrate Data Collection & Visualization using Mitsubishi MC Works 64 SCADA.Showcase
Simple application by using robotic arm with vision camera guidance to sort pass-or-fail product integrated together with safety laser scanner to show collaborative human-machine operation support that includes safety options allows working areas to be used jointly by people and robots. All the information such as robotic arm axis coordinate and Overall Equipment Effectiveness factors will be collected and visualized in SCADA system.
By measuring OEE, it is the best metric for identifying losses, bench-marking progress, and systematically improve the productivity of manufacturing equipment from the insight of system Availability, Performance and Quality.
Availability: Robot unplanned stop due to product shortage
Performance: Cycle time to complete one sorting (robot slow down caused longer cycle time)
Quality: Total number of fail product from sorting
