Andon is a manufacturing term referring to a system to notify management, maintenance, and other workers of a quality or process problem. The centerpiece is a device incorporating signal lights to indicate which workstation has the problem. The alert can be activated manually by a worker using a pull cord or button, or may be activated automatically by the production equipment itself. The system may include a means to stop production so the issue can be corrected. Some modern alert systems incorporate audio alarms, text, or other displays.
Sciengate Automation offers the best solution for Andon system by using wireless and batteryless technology and remote monitoring system to make end user more flexible in future maintenance.
- Install ANDON where all operators can see and display production progress.
- Improve unstable performance each operators and stabilize production.
