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. Our solutions integrate a variety of new and legacy plant floor devices to streamline operations 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.
SPEDE solutions are designed to prevent errors and help you control quality, increase efficiency and get 20/20 visibility of your operations. Automated functions include:
Real-time production data can be viewed on a touchscreen at lineside enabling you to monitor and adjust machine efficiencies.
Interfacing to a production machine's PLC allows for reading the PLC's stored data, providing HMI synchron-ization for redundant part verification. SPEDE PLC Interfaces include read/ writes to:
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.
You can use a handheld or vehicle-mount scanner to:
Operations Traceability automates quality control in WIP by ensuring each part goes through an operation successfully before advancing to the next. Functions include:
Using vision sensors at the end of production and/or in packing areas can eliminate human errors due to worker confusion, distraction and tiredness. SPEDE vision solutions include functions for:
SPEDE Labeling uses input from PLCs, scales, vision and/or USB cameras at packing areas to ensure the part number and pack count are correct before triggering a container label to print. Highlights include:
Weigh scales at the packaging line can be used to calculate the number of parts being packed into a container and then trigger a container label to print when the total count of parts, based on individual piece weight and allowance for tare weight, is correct.
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.
A SQL Server PC on your WiFi or wired network runs the SPEDE Apps to interface to production machine PLCs, Line-side PCs, Vision Sensors, weigh scales, conveyors, cameras, OCR and your host ERP, EDI and OEE systems.
A small Bluetooth Beacon can be attached to WIP containers of parts to automatically record their movement. When a container movement is detected, the Beacon transmits its ID to SPEDE and the SPEDE Locator App is updated.
A small Bluetooth Beacon can be attached to large singular items such as steel coils, to automatically record their movement. The Beacon wakes up and transmits its ID to SPEDE when coil movement is detected, and the SPEDE Locator App is updated.
