Error proofing for manual assembly and picking applications

GUIDED ASSEMBLY PROCESS CONTROL

Combining Sorion’s software and hardware products in a fully integrated assembly station allows manufacturers to avoid costly rework, increase productivity and maximise quality on their production line.

The solution is field proven and is already enabling manufacturers from a variety of industries to actively improve their quality processes whilst also reducing their operating costs.

CAPABILITIES

At the heart of the system is Sorion’ Sextans error proofing software for product assembly processes. Running on a touchscreen PC, Sextans controls the kitting and assembly process, data acquisition and result management.

Typical deployments for the Guided Assembly Solutions include the automotive industry, manufacturing and technology sectors.

FEATURES

  • Controlled process with no faults forward
  • Pick to light system to ensure selection of correct parts
  • Integration with factory equipment, tools, test equipment, vision systems etc.

Error Proofing

Full traceability of all parts

Increased accuracy and quality of operations

OPERATOR GUIDANCE

Digital work instructions (running on touchscreen PCs) guide operators step by step through complex tasks.

TRACEABILITY

Data for each completed step is recorded for a digital history of the entire production process.

NO FAULTS FORWARD

Sequenced production operations and integrity checks help eliminate errors in product assembly.

INDEPENDENCE

Easy to configure to exact requirements, without the need for hard coding.

CAPABILITIES

User Access Control

Prevents unauthorised operation with permissions and user roles

Part verification

Barcode scanning or RFID reader to identify product components

Pick to Light

Ensures quick and precise selection of parts

DC Tooling

The correct tool and tightening program is selected dynamically

Factory Interfaces
