Solution details

Reducing equipment size and visualizing trouble

Reduce equipment size by combining processes with the collaborative robot, MELFA ASSISTA. Visualize trouble by collecting interlock signals in an andon system

Using intelligent technology, automate the operational processes that humans previously handled because of the high degree of difficulty.

Key Point

  • Safety functions allow robots and humans to work together, easily enabling safe automation and space-saving.

Configuring a production line that manufactures products flexibly according to the production status and that does not require a safety fence

Manufacture products according to the production status by collecting information on systems and cooperating with FA products. Configure a production line that human collaboration support with area sensors enables a safe approach to the operation area without a fence and without stopping the robots.

Connect and cooperate with various FA products, such as the MELSEC iQ-series. Comply with e-F@ctory and seamlessly integrate IT systems and robots.

Ensure safety with a robot that does not approach the cooperative work area where operators work.

Key Points
  • Manufacture according to the production status with seamless device collaboration and improve productivity and maintainability.
  • Human collaboration support with safety options enables humans and robots to share work areas.

Reducing downtime by early error detection with visualization of the product line

Visualize the entire network with CC-Link IE TSN. Reduce downtime by detecting failure areas early with a network diagnosis function.

Reduce downtime by visibly displaying the entire network and detecting the failure area quickly with the CC-Link IE Field diagnosis.

Check duplicate station numbers and wiring errors by monitoring wiring changes in real time.

Key Points
  • Analyze trouble factors by checking events on the network and module communication status.
  • Monitor PLCs of other stations via the network.

Reducing wiring in the control panel with the most suitable connection configuration

Reduce equipment wiring by integrating systems that were previously configured by multiple networks into CC-Link IE TSN/CC-Link IE Field.

Increase system configuration flexibility and reduce wiring costs by building an optimal network that connects PLCs, servo amplifiers, and inverters on a single network suitable for an application.

Integrate distributed control, I/O control, and motion control while having information communication with IT systems mixed.

Key Points

  • Configure a flexible system with various devices.
  • Build flexible wiring according to the system layout.

Sharing workpiece information among systems and managing it in a hot system

Share workpiece information among systems by reading and writing data with RFID. In addition, manage the information in a host system by reading the QR code with a code reader and linking individual information and RFID data.

Increase traceability with RFID that allows all production line processes to be traced and various information to be read and saved.

Use the code reader reading results and recognition images for traceability by sending the data to a host system.

Key Points
  • Data can be transferred among systems by attaching RFID readers (antennas) to conveyor belts and various parts of the system, and RFID tags to the pallets that carry the system.
  • Read QR codes printed on metal surfaces or complex shapes by adjusting contrast. The wide visual field enables batch reading of multiple codes and stable reading of codes on varying positions and heights.

Reducing cycle time for motor windings

Reduce cycle time by supporting complex winding patterns with cam control and switching the cam patterns according to windings when manufacturing motor coils with a winding machine.

Control an output axis in cam control with cam data created according to the motion.

Key Points
  • The following cam operations are available according to the application: linear, two-way, and feed operations.
    • Display the status of the servo amplifier in operation and input/output signals, and power consumption on GOT for checking.
