SPEDE Manufacturing Solutions use Poka Yoke methods to automate and error-proof production area processes, and provide traceability of parts as they move through production to shipping of finished product. Our solutions integrate a variety of new and legacy plant floor technologies to create a real-time information network and provide 20/20 visibility into your operations. You can choose the functionality you need on a per-line or per-site basis, and add more at any time.
You can control quality and reduce labor in production area processes by automating manual tasks using Poka Yoke methods. This includes Part Inspection, Serialization, Validation and Counting; Production Reporting; Scrap, Rework, Hold and Release control; and Serialized Traceability. You can also view real-time production data at lineside.
Interfacing to a production machine's PLC allows for reading the PLC's stored data, providing HMI synchron-ization for redundant part verification. PLC-based labeling counts good vs scrap, and prints the correct label automatically to ensure labeling error-proofing. Real-time production run data displays at lineside.
Component Traceability enables you to see all individual components that went into the manufacturing of an end item by linking the end part number to its serialized and non-serialized components, creating accurate traceability from raw to finished part, and minimizing the scope of recalls.
Operations Traceability automates quality control in the WIP area by ensuring that each part has gone through an operation successfully before it advances to the next operation. Real-time 20/20 visibility lets you see exactly what parts are in which operations right now, and view traceability history.
A vision inspection system can identify parts or components based on a unique characteristic and automatically divert incorrect or defective parts, to maintain quality control. Vision is also used for counting serialized and non-serialized parts for labeling error-proofing and packing control.
Labeling error-proofing and quality control is achieved by using input from a PLC, weigh scale, vision sensor and/or USB camera to ensure the part number is correct and the pack count is correct before automatically printing a label. Serialized labels can be printed for individual parts, and for containers of parts requiring an internal or a customer label.
Your operators can view and monitor the real-time completion status of today's releases so they know which parts to build to meet today's schedules. A red/ yellow/ green status code indicates whether more parts are needed, or if it's time for a changeover for the next part.
For part verification and packaging, inexpensive USB cameras can determine if all parts have filled their segmented packaging slots in a layer of a shipping container. To confirm quality control standards are being maintained, optional video can provide proof that the container was packed according to customer requirements.
