Saline Lectronics examines the benefits to Cogiscan’s enhanced traceability and the positive outcomes of creating an interconnected, intelligent factory.
Different types of machines automatically communicating to each other and seamlessly sharing data is no longer a scenario only seen in science fiction novels. Today’s leading manufacturers are gaining a competitive edge by embracing current technologies and trends, including Industry 4.0, to create a more connected and intelligent manufacturing environment. Many manufacturing companies are equipped with intelligent machines capable of not only collecting and analyzing enormous amounts of data, but are also capable of talking directly with other machines in order to create a smart and unified production system.
Recognizing the ability to seamlessly link production machines together, Saline Lectronics, a domestic electronic contract manufacturer, has intentionally designed its Surface Mount assembly operations around this connected production system concept.
Utilizing intelligent software to create a connected factory, Lectronics has seen positive improvements in:
- job set-up and changeover time
- defect rates
- and overall throughput.
