The equipment on tradition production line cannot be interconnected, and the operating data of each single equipment can only be manually collected, which not only wastes manpower and material resources, but causes errors and lags of information. At the same time, inefficient management may also lead to a series of problems such as high maintenance cost of equipment, inability to maintain equipment in time, and high energy consumption in the production line. Newamstar‘s digital smart factory solution designed for customers can effectively solve these problems. Ethernet technology is adopted in the production line and OMAC PackML standard is applied in the data interface, which can quickly connect all the single machines to collect and store the date of underlying equipments. Newamstar‘s digital smart factory solution provides customers with an open platform and analyzes and processes the data through the latest production line management software, presenting users with clear and accurate production dynamics.
Generally speaking, Newamstar‘s Digital Smart Factory Solution has the following characteristics:
1. It not only realizes the real-time collection of the data in the entire production line, but it also realizes the networking of the whole line of equipment, and provides a solid foundation for advanced applications such as ERP and MES for enterprises.
2. The modular solutions are designed according to customer’s demands.
3. The system can be integrated with customer’s existing production line, with less investment cost, but with quick return, short cycle and easy maintenance.
4. The system has strict hierarchical authority, strong compatibility and easy operation.
The digital factory modular solution provided by Newamstar can not only meet the actual needs of most manufacturers, help enterprises to change the traditional production status, and take into account both the whole line and the single machine, but can improve the efficiency of enterprises, promote enterprise management, and solve the inaccessibility of information. The solution allows customers to know the operation of the production line in real time wherever they are, bringing customers a good product experience and helping them achieve the expected benefits. Nowadays, Newamstar‘s intelligent production line management system has been put into operation in more and more customers’ sites, and different production lines are perfectly and seamlessly connected.
The main functional modules of the Newamstar‘s management platform of intelligent production line are divided into: process monitoring, energy consumption, production performance, equipment management, reporting center, etc.
Multi-level process monitoring is completed, including the production line overview and single equipment monitoring. on the production line overview, you can click on any equipment in the production line to enter the viewing interface of the single equipment. In addition to monitoring equipment status, such as production, waiting, cleaning, and shutdown, each equipment monitors key procedure parameters, operating hours, cumulative production, cumulative number of defective products, trend curves, alert for alarms and events. Customers can view the specific operation status of the equipment and real-time display of production operations on the office computer and mobile terminal, including KPI in the operation of real-time production.
In Newamstar‘s management platform of intelligent production line, a set of standard performance analysis tools is specially designed and provided, which can be used to view running sequence diagram, Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE), malfunction listed diagram, analysis of production loss, rate of equipment utilization, Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), etc.
In order to help customers’ management personnel to objectively evaluate the performance of each production line, the system provides functions of production line comparison and analysis, including equipment operating efficiency and other key indicators. It is possible to compare different production lines in the factory, compare the same models of different production lines in the factory, compare the same models of multiple factories, or compare the same production line or the same equipment in the same period single month. Through these comparisons, users can better formulate performance appraisal indicators and improve the overall management level of users.
In the functional module of equipment management, customers’ equipment management personnel can easily spot check the maintenance management of the equipment in the production line, and can take it into record. For different types of equipment in the production line, the maintenance type and period can be set in advance. The system automatically reminds you of the maintenance time and what kind of maintenance to perform based on the operating condition of each equipment. The customer’s department of equipment management can draw up a maintenance plan based on this, and record the maintenance content after the equipment is maintained. Equipment maintenance can also be triggered manually by the inspection personnel, or the system setup can automatically trigger the maintenance order according to the fault status. The maintenance order includes: work order number, personnel and working hours, planned completion time, required tools, work contents, work requirements and standards, and required spare parts.
Through the equipment management module, customers can timely and accurately transfer all kinds of maintenance information to each post, and each step can be reviewed afterwards, which improves the efficiency of equipment maintenance and guarantees the high efficiency and stability of the production line.
With the continuous promotion and application of Digital Smart Factory Solution, Newamstar has been recognized by more and more customers. Newamstar will continue its striving for optimization and innovation so as to bring more convenience and better experience to customers.
The modular solutions are designed according to customer’s demands.
