How it works
Ubisense installs a sensor network throughout the production area to be monitored using Ubisense Series 7000 Sensors. All sensors are standard IP-based devices connected using standard commercially-available network equipment which are monitored and tuned in real-time.
Location tags are then attached to products early on in the production cycle to provide identification and location tracking information as they move through the various assembly and manufacturing steps.
Automatic identification and precise coexistence between parts, tools, test equipment, workers and work bays enables each application to drive the process automation.
Locating products and tools makes it possible to make associations between them. For example when a tool enters a defined workstation’s area it will automatically send instructions to program the tool settings and enable or disable the tool, which eliminates the need to barcode scan the product being worked . The benefits are increased productivity and reduced work in progress (WIP) cycle time and production flow.
