Smart Manufacturing Process
SMT system solution
By visualizing the progress in production and the status of facility operation through linking the production line and integrated mounting system JaNets, the company proposes the latest production line that will improve the total productivity including cooperation between facilities. The proposed production setup is a mounting line that demonstrates high throughput in variable product, variable production. It combines the ultimate all-in-one mounter RS-1R equipped with the new “Takumi Head” that achieves both versatility and high speed; high-speed machine RX-7R; and 3D inspection machine RV-2-3DH.

In addition, advanced surface-mounting process and advanced surface-mounted technology (SMT) line solution for smart manufacturing will be introduced, including an auto loading feeder and a nozzle traceability function using RS-1R, which adopts RFID tags for the first time in industry.

Robot insertion system solution
The company proposes a robot insertion system solution to realize the automation of manual insertion processes in board mounting. It has focused on the automation of manual operations, such as parts insertion, screw tightening, and assembly, and has proposed systems to automate these manual operations. Furthermore, it has developed a new robot platform that combines multiple articulated robots and allows parts insertion and screwing operations in a single unit. The combination of the JM Series and the insertion robots greatly expanded the area of automation. The robot insertion system solution will continue to evolve to expand the area of the post-process automation.

Intelligent Storage Management System
The storage system solution solves problems, such as errors in parts selection, time to search for parts from a large stock, and setup time, among others, in conventional parts loading and unloading work and shelf management performed by humans. The company’s storage system can automatically issue parts used in the mounting process at the required timing, and can automatically store and manage used parts. In addition, it is possible to automate the manual layout work by using the storage and retrieval system originally developed by the company, the automatic transfer devices, and the robots. Furthermore, it can be combined with the customer’s management system, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution system (MES) and with existing infrastructure, dramatically upgrading the parts supply management process to a smarter form.

Smart Inspection Process
Inspection and measurement solution
The inspection and measurement solution achieves automation, labor saving, and efficiency improvement of inspection and measurement work in various factories beyond the conventional board appearance inspection.

It solves problems, such as advancement of the manufacturing quality in recent years, increase in the items of inspection, variation of results in manual inspection, retaining highly skilled inspectors, and others.

By applying an original image recognition and inspection technology with high accuracy, it automates sampling inspection of dimensional measurement, flaws, dents, and flatness of parts, which are presently performed visually or with a measuring instrument. It realizes smarter inspection process through shortening inspection cycle, saving labor, and improving quality.

System and service solution
The production optimization system solution, aimed at improving the operation efficiency of production lines, can visualize information directly related to the effectiveness of the production operations of the entire plant, from parts warehouses to mounting and inspection processes. In cooperation with the integrated mounting system JaNets, it enables monitoring of the operation status of the mounting machine and production progress in real time. In addition, the company will propose the latest service solutions for improving the operation efficiency and productivity of a mounting plant, including trace monitor to support early start-up of production and various maintenance proposals.
