Customer is the world’s technology leader in innovative solutions for power electronics, advanced foams for cushioning and protective sealing, and high-frequency printed circuit materials. Several quality risks exist: at a bending machine the operator places parts in wrong direction leading to scrap. Additional complexity: the customer works with different products and small series. Arkite HIM monitors the correct position of the parts before bending and copes with variance in workflows.
Customer is a leading integrated global manufacturer of engineered structural metal components and assemblies. Several quality risks exist: misplacements by the operator such as unfinished parts, wrong direction, left part into right rack, etc. The rack contains 38 pieces and there are roughly 40 racks. The high amount of positions and combination of left and right makes it difficult for the operators to keep quality in full control (0-ppm). Missing parts leads to machine stops at customer site. Mixing left and right parts in the racks result in a crash with the pickup robot at the customer site. Arkite HIM monitors the correct orientation of the finished product in the correct rack. If the rack is complete HIM triggers a label printer and ensures that it is placed at the correct rack.
