Juki has enhanced the functionalities of traditional software to offer Intelligent Shop Floor Solutions, a complete production support system. The system is composed of five specialized pieces of software: Intelli PE for creating production programs, Intelli PD for downloading production programs to multiple lines, Intelli PM for improvement of the operating rate of the entire floor, Intelli SCS (setup control system) for parts verification and traceability, and Intelli EM for management of feeder maintenance history.
With IS, users can comprehensively control and optimize various tasks and information of the entire floor, or the manufacturing field, that are related to production using Juki mounters. As a result, the cost of the entire floor is reduced by improving productivity and product quality, and by streamlining work.
The system uses barcodes and 2-D barcodes for quality control such as prevention of faulty mounting of components and traceability for streamlining of setup time. For authentication of tape feeders and tray supply devices, users can select from barcode RFID. The easy-to-use software allows users to monitor line operation status and production control information in the plant real-time from a remote location. Advanced features include standardized graphical operation screens across applications, and the ability to switch interface language to English, Japanese or Chinese from any screens.
