Cost-effective PC-based Robot Monitoring and Preventive Maintenance Solution for a High-tech Panel Manufacturing Company

Posted by Kari Grosser on Mar 30, 2017 10:15:00 AM

Project Introduction

In order to improve efficiency and product yield, more and more manufactures such as car, panel, wafer, metal, chemical, plastic, food and other fields began to implement robot applications be leveraging its efficient, durable and precise characteristics, resulting in the industrial robotic arm that plays an indispensable key role in the factory. However, when a large number of robots are introduced into the automated production processes, one major worry is that sudden equipment failure will affect productivity. In particular, the high-tech manufacturers have to run 24 hours non-stop production and any production line halt will bring a great loss. Therefore, collecting the robot information through sensors and identifying potential problems in advanced have become the important parts of the stable production capacity.

Optimize Your Facility Management for High-tech Factories

For hi-tech factories that operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week, the occurrence of unstable voltage, fire alarm, gas leaks or liquid leaks is likely to reduce production rate and even result in downtime incurring huge losses. These factories, for example, plants for fabricating semiconductors, TFT-LCD panels, multi-crystalline solar cells, or LED, usually use facilities such as high-voltage equipment, emergency power supply system, nitrogen or other special gas system, ultra-pure water systems, waste water treatment equipment or clean rooms to supply continuous production. Advantech Facility Monitoring and Control System is especially designed for hi-tech plants to provide automatic monitoring over their facilities, which takes control of power supply systems, water treatment systems, gas supply systems, clean rooms and other plant facilities and closely watches over their status with automatic detection and real time alerts and alarms which will notify plant workers if any abnormal situation happens, so as to reduce downtime as well as minimize production losses.

WebAccess Highly Integrated Solution Perfects the Automatic Monitoring and Control System of Wasterwater Treatment Plant

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 9, 2017 9:45:00 AM

Introduction

Wastewater treatment plant is a basic infrastructure in modern society to purify wastewater created by homes and businesses. Its operation is 24 hours a day and wastewater treatment comprises multiple processes to remove solids, organic compounds and other matters. Such a complex work flow needs a careful management and it is insufficient only being supervised by plant personnel. Besides, the source water quality can be changed in an instant and any negligence or mistake may lead to improper treatment or cause environmental pollution. Therefore, the treated effluent to meet the environmental regulations and government criteria before discharging into the sewer or river.

Intelligent Process Control in Power & Energy Delivers Better Power Efficiency

Posted by Kari Grosser on Jan 3, 2017 10:05:00 AM

Project Introduction

As many energy companies seek to reduce their footprint on the environment, more efficient power and energy generation is becoming a critical issue. In the power generation and distribution market, maintenance-free backup systems and IEC 61850-based power transmission & distribution systems improve energy generation and distribution efficiency. Power substations are subsidiaries of electricity generation systems where voltage is transformed from high to low or reversed using transformers. Nowadays, multiple protocols, including many proprietary protocols with custom communication links exist for substation automation and interoperation with devices from different vendors would be a huge advantage to users of substation automation devices.
