Under the tag line “Ready for next 25 years,” the ASYS Group gave an impressive demonstration – on 530 m² of floor space – outlining the further steps being taken toward the smart factory by the leader in technology. The PULSE production line with its material transport stations, autonomous intelligent vehicles (AIVs), and a central component storage system drew numerous visitors to the booth.
What will electronics manufacturing look like in the future? What kind of smart assistance systems will be utilized to provide the best possible support to operators? The ASYS Group answered these questions and more for interested visitors from all over the world at Productronica 2017. The automation experts also presented an enhanced assembly line featuring new solutions for all aspects of material logistics and PULSE Industry 4.0 software. Material logistics is implemented in three elements: a central component storage system, material transport stations, and AIVs. The Dry Tower of the new ASYS Group member, SuperDry Totech, was utilized as the central storage system. AIVs load and unload the assembly line, while material stations form the interface between the operator and the assembly line, component storage system, and AIV. The software product portfolio was demonstrated on the PULSE production line. The machine builder impressively showed how individual applications can contribute to optimal production planning, and how smartwatch and tablet makes the operator’s job even easier.
