A smart factory is created from many parts, and inspection systems will play a critical role for process optimization in the next industrial revolution. Accurate, reliable 3D measurement-based data is essential, and a key element for a true smart factory. In this 12-part webinar series, viewers will learn about secure data collection, AI-powered solutions to manage and analyze data, and how to leverage the IPC CFX-QPL to succeed in the transformation to Industry 4.0. Managing process data from connected SPI and AOI systems will help realize the Fourth Industrial Revolution faster. Perhaps we can even discover a path to the autonomous manufacturing future some are calling Industry 5.0.
There are many pieces that create a smart factory, but inspection systems will perform a critical role in quality management and process optimization in the next industrial revolution. Accurate and reliable 3D measurement-based data is critical and a key element for a true smart factory. Inspection systems and proprietary AI-based learning technologies incorporate the industry’s best True 3D measurement-based technologies.
The CFX communication standard enables the secure collection of production data and inspection results. All this can be integrated effortlessly with MES or traceability systems. At the same time, the Hermes standard eliminates SMEMA connectors, external barcode scanners, and other complexities associated with line automation. Together, these standards provide advanced closed-loop communications that can perform complex tasks and simplify implementation.
Intelligent software solutions can help manufacturers analyze and optimize the production process by managing process data from connected SPI and AOI systems to speed the arrival of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and perhaps even offer a path to the autonomous manufacturing future some are calling Industry 5.0.
The software suite should deliver the opportunity to realize a fully automated and advanced manufacturing facility through a comprehensive infrastructure for autonomous process optimization. The system must autonomously render complex process optimization decisions typically reserved for dedicated process engineers.
Inspection machines can successfully measure stencil printing, component mounting, and solder reflow performance; yet, there are limitations–especially when closed-loop communication is missing. Equipment suppliers must cooperate to achieve communication for a zero-defect future by creating M2M connections that can optimize the process by exchanging real-time SPI and AOI measurement data with other machines in the production line.
Multiple factors create a smart factory: automation, connectivity, monitoring, control, and optimization. Regardless of the factors, there will also be key differentiators that will help a manufacturer succeed in the Industry 4.0 transformation.
Manufacturers should be aware of the topics, messages, and sections available in CFX to help the digital transformation. Yet, as the transformation progresses, it is critical to keep pace with the available tools. This session explores the most essential messages that are used for inspection.
