Etteplan’s FAST concept is based on LCIA technology that comes from Toyota and Omron. LCIA technology has been proven in practice for many years now and delivers big advantages in productivity, quality and flexibility. The core concept is to make use of the human strengths (intelligence, flexibility) and combine these with the strengths of the machine (repetitive, accurate). The line design makes sure that the benefits last over time.

Error proofing

In production environments where assembly is executed manually, we are usually confronted with a highly fluctuating quality level. To reduce operator dependency, error proofing is the logical countermeasure. The operator is guided during the assembly sequence and simple and clever checks make sure that when mistakes are made the operator is warned automatically.

Erro proofing

Pick to light

In situations with manual assembly, it is easy for workers to forget to assemble a part or to use the wrong part. With a pick to light system, a light in front of the bin lights up, indicating to the operator which part to pick. The hand of the operator reaching into the bin is detected by a sensor. When the correct part is picked, the sequence continues, if not the operator is warned. Pick to light systems are an easy way of assuring assembly quality.

Operator support system

Operator support systems continue where pick to light systems end. The system works with a projector that projects an image on the surface of the worktable. Bins can be lighted to indicate the part to pick. The operators’ hand is detected by a 3D camera. The projector can also be used to project the work instruction on the work surface to indicate where to place the component.

Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles

To increase productivity in your factory, it is a good idea to start to automate lower added value work such as transportation of goods. Autonomous intelligent vehicles are excellent for transporting components to and products from the production line. With just-in-time delivery, it is possible to reduce stock positions on the work floor.
