Balluff error proofing expert, Will Healy III, will be presenting on the topic of Continuous Improvement with IO-Link at the ASSEMBLY Show in Rosemont, IL on Thursday October 29th at 10:30 am in the Showcase Theater.
Flexible, Easy and Fast Integration of Continuous Improvement - Enhancing your Existing Controls Architecture with IO-Link
For those in management or engineering who are responsible for the quality of production in a factory, part quality can be a heavy burden. The more things we can automate in our processes will help reduce our errors and improve the end quality of our products. When looking for flexible automation equipment, there are always some base decisions that must be made:
- Will it work with what we have now? We can’t rip out what we have working.
- How do we integrate the solution? We have limited time and resources.
- Can we also get it from a different supplier later if we have to replace it?
- Can we get it implemented ASAP? Like during a lunch break or scheduled shutdown?
Control architectures have significant impact on how a total error proofing program is implemented. Having a system that works well initially is somewhat easy. The real test is how well the controls function as time goes on and we continuously tweak, update, and change the process. In an error proofing environment, easy expandability is a unique requirement that is solved with the open standard IO-Link. Learn more and see the full agenda on the ASSEMBLY show website.
