visualize panel information from a distance
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
With the equipment status visible from a distance, the LA6 signal tower minimizes the need to continually check the operation panel. Audible notification can also be added for additional indication.

PDF
Improves Display of Robot Status and Safety Guidelines
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Visibility is greatly improved by programming all five light segments of the LA6 a single color. Understanding the status of the device can be done from a distance without having to approach the control monitor.

PDF
Visualize Work Progress
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Each process is assigned a color, and the segments indicates the progress, with flashing lights and audible when an error occurs, makes it possible to check even from a distance to enable a fast response.

PDF
Create Uniform Visual Signals Throughout the Worksite
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
With the application software EDITOR For Signal Tower, set up various displays for errors.Even after installation, you can change signal colors using the application.

PDF
Visualize Takt Time with LA6 on AGV
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Set up a takt time display with colors indicating elapsed time so that both the sub line and main line are aware of the work progress of each line.

PDF
Visualize remaining amount
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
By making the remaining amount of liquid visible froma distance with the LA6 signal tower, we were able toreduce non-operating time and increase work efficiency.

PDF
Make The Water Level Visible and Reduce Checking Time
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Water level is visible!Drain tank reaches irregular level → all segments of tower light up and audible alarm sounds. Additionally, the timer display shows the elapsed time from when the alarm was triggered.

PDF
Prevent Picking Errors with Pick-to-Light
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Implementing a pick-to-light system with NE signal beacons simplifies the part picking process and prevents human error. Furthermore, the NE features a compact size for installation in tight spaces.

PDF
Reduce Stress and Avoid Work Interruptions
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The NE Signal Beacons is installed on the employee's desk, allowing them to toggle indication between red for "busy" and green for "available" with a single touch button. This avoids time-sensitive work from being interrupted, and coworkers can clearly see when it is an appropriate time to have a discussion.

PDF
Clear Indication, Simple Installation.
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The NE Signal Beacons are implemented in a color-coded system with red signaling "in use" and green signaling "available," enabling quick and clear indications, even from a distance. Furthermore, it can be connected using a single M12 cable, making installation quick and easy.

PDF
Factory Monitor issues remotely and in real-time
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The NBM is able to take signals from standard I/O and network devices and send emails to remote staff, alerting them of issues at the office and manufacturing site in real-time.

PDF
Visualize the time required at each work step
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Detect with a sensor, and show the elapsed time since completion of previous process.Use mirroring function to display the status in the office.

PDF
Building integrated systems for operation management and monitoring
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Retrofit existing equipment easily. Remotely monitor contact information over the network.

PDF
Easily compile operation status of old equipment!
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The WD System allows users to wirelessly acquire machine data remotely and in real-time, completely eliminating handwritten reports. The collected data is accurate and can be used to determine issue severity for more effective predictive maintenance.

PDF
Automating a Handwritten Factory Daily Report
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The WD System automatically records equipment operation information 24/7 allowing users to identify trends and pin point machine downtime for more efficient predictive maintenance.

PDF
Visualize Equipment in Unmanned Areas
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The NBM is able to convert I/O signals from robots to network commands, triggering the appropriate light segment on the LA6-POE!By dividing the channels into the NBM, you can identify which machine has a problem.

PDF
Industry or automobile-related manufacturing
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Remote notification of core equipment operation cycle time The LA6 conveniently integrates into your facilities' existing LAN infrastructure. Operators are able to mirror status from the LA6-POE master over the network to the LA6-POE slave in the office.Leveraging the existing LAN connection minimizes time and wiring costs.

PDF
Equipment Operation Management over LAN
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
By switching signal towers to LA6-POE, you are able to collect . operation data over the LAN infrastructure. Because the LA6 supports POE, it does not require a power supply.

PDF
Regulating the Cell Assembly Line
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Collect Working Time and Visualize the Bottlenecks.By collecting the work time for all the processes, you can visualize the bottleneck and clarify where balancing is required.

PDF
Visualize Lost Time in Cell Production
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
By installing a sensor at the workbench of the cell stall to collect the simple data of when the worker is in the stall (working) and when the worker is away (not working), we were able to make improvements in just 1 month without adding a burden for collecting this data.

PDF
Signal From Cells Using an Andon Monitor
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The manually-controlled HSST allows assembly workers to send requests to the Andon monitor so managers can determine priority and reduce lost time.

PDF
Visualize / Analyze Stalled Robotics
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
By using the existing PATLITE signal towers on the control panels with the WD system, it is easy to make a cost-effective wireless data acquisition system to improve your robotics operation management.

PDF
Simple Request System
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The NH-FV gives visual indication of when and what supplies are being requested. Wait time for parts is reduced, and productivity increases.

PDF
Reduce stress and avoid disruption. Indicating a busy state.
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The NE light is installed on the employee's desk, allowing a single touch button to switch between red for "busy" and green for "work support". This helps prevent time-critical tasks from being interrupted and ensures that your coworkers know exactly what time they are working.
