Providing a Broader, Deeper and Easier Grasp of Production Information
The i-Connect production quality control system is a core application for IoT (Internet of Things) implementation at manufacturing sites, integrating information from molding machines, peripheral equipment, and various sensors. It dramatically improves monitoring and control capabilities to achieve higher-level, borderless, efficient production.
A Broader Grasp of Information
i-Connect provides intuitive control over the molding operations using an overview list. Icon placement that matches the plant layout allows understanding of the operational status of each machine in an instant. It is also possible to display a list of operation transition or production progress graphs for each machine.
Real-time understanding of the whole molding cell
i-Connect acquires data such as temperature, operating status, etc. of peripheral devices, and displays them in a list. (Separate molding machine option(s) may be required for connection with peripheral devices and sensors.)
A Deeper Grasp of Information
By specifying time frames, detailed chronological data such as transition of operational status and correlations can be checked. Tracing machine status and molding conditions at a particular time for a molded part improves product traceability.
Data analysis of a single molding machine
By specifying the number of shots, transition in actual values such as mold clamping force, peak pressure, cushion value, dosing time, etc. can be confirmed using line graphs and scatter diagrams.
In-depth history management
Using stoppage history, alarm history, and molding conditions history allows analysis of factors correlated with defects, which can lead to improvements in production conditions.
An Easier Grasp of Information
Speedy error handling
i-Connect provides linkage of alarm number to troubleshooting to support rapid on-site error handling.
Accurate, simple creation of daily reports
i-Connect automatically summarizes daily reports for each molding machine. These reports can be simply exported in CSV file format.
Real-time access to information away from the plant
Real-time notifications of operational status and errors can be sent to devices such as smartphones and tablets, even at off-site locations.
i-Connect is a browser-based application with no installation requirements. The graphical screen design supports intuitive, speedy operation.
Linking work sites with administrators and conference rooms
As long as there is a device, anyone can obtain an understanding of the real-time production status from anywhere, at any time.
