Electronics manufacturing – Machine Control for Smart Factory
Ensure product quality & maximize equipment utilization.
With aggressive schedules and constantly changing requirements, it can be difficult to manage an efficient production plan. With Cogiscan’s Machine Control application, you’ll make sure that your machines are performing as intended and always running the right products in the most optimal conditions.
Why should you use our Machine Control solution?
Enhance Product Quality:
Automatically stop a machine if any aspect of the setup or process is incorrect.
Improve Machine Performance:
Track and manage both preventative and corrective maintenance on your machines and tooling.
Maximize Equipment Utilization:
Keep your machines running at their full capacity while avoiding unplanned downtime.
Save Precious Resources:
Complete and automated setup validation will save you both time and money.
Maximize Equipment ROI:
Update any legacy machines to support current, automated manufacturing processes.
Improve Line Agility:
With offline setup capabilities, you can have your job kit prepared & validated well before changeover time.
Both modules are included in our Machine Control application
Setup & Process Control
This module ensures that your process will be set up according to plan.
Setup Validation (+)
Our module validates every element of the machine setup, including:
- Program / Recipe
- Machine settings / Parameters
Legacy Machine Support (+)
A simple and low-cost solution for legacy machines without smart feeders using manual barcode scanning.
Smart Feeder Support (+)
For machines with smart feeders, our Co-NECT machine interface is used to harvest feeder event data. Setup can be performed by either Cogiscan or the machine vendor’s software. All data will be synchronized directly within TTC Server.Learn more about our Co-NECT platform!
Process Control (+)
Define limits for process parameters and measurements to ensure that the process is within acceptable spec limits; interlock the line if any parameters fall outside the acceptable ranges.
Operator Friendliness (+)
Setup validation with a common interface
Setup validation with a common user interface for all machines, no matter the brand or model, used in the SMT process.
Step-by-step operator instructions
Configurable, step-by-step operator instructions to both error-proof and simplify the setup and changeover process.
Offline and Online setup
Our module offers both offline and online machine setup to give you the flexibility you need.
This module will help you save money by preventing unforeseen downtime.
Downtime Prevention (+)
Track and manage both preventative and corrective maintenance activities to minimize planned and unplanned downtime.
Time-based & Threshold-based Maintenance (+)
Establish rules based on the specific machine requirements, operator input, or actual machine performance (including feeder pick counts and mispick ratio).
Warning Alarms (+)
Warning alarms will alert your technicians when maintenance is required to ensure you don’t miss out on important activities.
Maintenance Reports (+)
Keep track of past maintenance activities and provide a reference tool for how to resolve similar issues in the future.
