[Applications] Factory Automation Field

Implement a Visual Timer for automated assembly lines.
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Even with an automated conveyor, balancing the takt time is still a problem!

PDF
Visualize the reduction in time-loss from down-time!
Proposal for Improvements ]
Longer idle time causes production loss.

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.

Maintaining Hygiene at Food Processing Site
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
LA6 displays the amount of time doors are left open. Flashing when the doors are opening, and for the amount of time they remain open, there is a change in the colors and number of segments. we can avoid contamination threats that occur from leaving the door open.

PDF
Prevent sand overflowing from the hopper
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
When used with a sensor, the signal tower can indicate different statuses based onuser-specified display pattens using colors, number of segments, and flashing lights.

PDF
Visualize the elapsed time from when the problem occurred
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
The LA6 Signal Tower emits different light patterns and audible alarms. Additionally, one segment lights up every 10 minutes, until the alarm is restored. Maintenance on equipment that takes a long time to restore can improve production efficiency

PDF
Visualize the Casting Process
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
As time elapses, the tower displays different patterns according to its progress. When casting is complete, the tower will flash blue.

PDF
Prevent Oversights During Inspection
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
For consistent inspections, use the signal tower as a timer. When inspections start, output a signal to LA6. The signal tower is activated, and the worker will inspect the product until all segments are blue.

PDF
Takt Time for Manual Assembly Process
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Install a signal tower showing the work progress. By making delays clearer, awareness at the work site is improved, and supply delays are reduced. The cart travels on rails, and requires a button to send it to the next process. As the button is pressed, the signal tower is automatically reset.

PDF
Visualize Takt Time with LA6 on AGV
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Mount the LA6, and display the work time for each assembly process. Make workers aware of the Takt time, to keep pace with assembly speed. Reduce lost time caused by AGV stops.

PDF
Visualize Amount of Liquid in the Tank!
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
With minimal equipment configuration, the LA6 clearly displays the fluid levels. No need to utilize complicated PLC controls. The signal tower can be set up for both water supply and drainage. Easy set up from a computer.

PDF
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
Visualize Level of Cutting Oil
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Meter display of the level of the cutting oil. As the oil level is visible from a distance by the number of segments, you can manage multiple units at once.

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
[ 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
Improve Predictive Maintenance
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
Visualize lost productivity from reduction in speed. The LA6 allows you to visualize the processing time and when it exceeds the standard cycle time, it enables operators to plan required maintenance more effectively.

PDF
Mistake-free Inspection Process
[ Proposal for Improvements ]
By adding the LR6-USB, the visual and audible alerts indicate Pass or Fail, adding another notification layer to further prevent oversight and errors.
