The Challenge

  • Inefficient asset utilization
  • No Accurate data
  • Unexpected Downtime
  • High maintenance costs
  • Absence of remote monitoring capability.

  • Lack of location monitoring capability
  • Excessive human involvement in the process
  • Reduced asset lifespan
  • Frequent equipment failure
  • Risk of over-maintenance or under-maintenance.

The Solution

  1. Design the project to load the Recipe to the PLC through Computer by using RS232 Communication with PLC to load the entire time frame, Batch Time and Date
  2. Indigenously developed software to Communicate with PLC using MODBUS(RTU).
  3. The Trans Robo’s developed in such a way to unload from the tub to load other tubs in sequential manner according to the loaded Recipe time frame in the PLC.
  4. We used 5 trans Robo’s to pick to load into the electroplating tubs and pick to unload the parts. 
  5. We used 2 terminals. One is a PC to load the recipe and monitor the process from the Admin desktop and one is at the workshop floor to operate separately, the shop floor PC is using a Touch Screen to RUN the Machine and Stop the Machine in any circumstances.
