Driving a production process with Automated Process Control
In order to achieve industrial excellence companies now strive to organize “smart factories”.
This is the industry 4.0 where main principles are :
- Interconnection (between machines, devices, and humans)
- Information transparency (in order to collect great amounts of data)
- Technical assistance (and training of operators on new technology)
- Decentralized decisions (in order to perform as autonomously as possible)
Thanks to the introduction of Automated Process Control (APC) within the workshop, Joseph Martin SA will be able to automatically setup the machine tools, create interconnections in their plant and be more effective in their production.
In traditional industries, operator must control the process. With APC, the software converts the measurement of the previous part in corrections automatically and can calculate the right correction even if corrections are interdependent.
Our APC software avoids any miscalculation problem and homogenizes the way to correct between operators. It can help to increase the speed of serial change and reduce the costs of non-quality. The target is to improve these main Key Process Indicator. This project results therefore from a real need to improve quality of parts in the automotive industry.
The challenge of this project is to create the connections between the mesurearing devices, APC software and turning machine. The first prototype on an Index is ongoing and first results will be available in September 2020.
