One of the valued manufacturing customers of Pumas Automation & Robotics had a great need for more transparency of the production process and real-time production information. Pumas got the opportunity to implement the solution Production Performance Manager based on the ANDON principles.
In manufacturing ‘time is money’ and downtime even more. In competitive markets like the automotive, it is important to shorten time-to-market, improve operational efficiency and optimize cost. Technology is one of the answers to keep at least a step ahead of the competitor.
One of our loyal customers in Indonesia took action and started to research what are the latest Smart Factory and Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) has to offer. With that information, the customer's management team prepared the industrial automation roadmap. The first priority is to provide real-time and transparent production information to support the production, maintenance and quality departments.
From that moment, the solution team of Pumas Indonesia came on board to offer consultation and translate the customer requirements into the solution concept. After the concept was accepted by the customer, our Pumas solution team convert the functional concept into the system architecture with the selection of cutting-edge technology. The customer was satisfied and authorized Pumas Indonesia work from the design phase into the implementation phase.
Flexible Automation System (FAS) invited our customers to join the System Control Fair 2017 and International Robotic Exhibition 2017 held in Tokyo. This event was an excellent way to show our manufacturing customers the latest trends according to the concepts Smart Factory and IIoT.
Tokyo System Control Fair 2017 is the Japanese equivalent of the German Industry 4.0. MONO means ‘Thing which is made’ and ZUKURI: ‘The act of making’.
The highlights of the System Control Fair 2017 in Tokyo according to the FAS customers are diverse with central themes like flexible production, real-time information, standardization and vertical/horizontal integration.
The biggest highlight was the introduction of the FA-IT IoT standard connectivity platform for automation plants to help manufacturer standardize and connect their assets. The consortium will bring seamless connectivity to the factory independent of brand.
The partnership exists of many key players:
- IT: Oracle, IBM, Fujitsu, NEC, …
- Software: Microsoft, CTC, KSK, …
- Industrial PCs: Advantech, Intel, HP, Contec, …
- Factory Automation: Mitsubishi Electric, Omron, Beckhoff, Schneider, …
Mitsubishi Electric shows during the fair the e-F@ctory concept what makes it possible to integrate the production process from raw material till the shipping products and from shop floor till the Cloud.
Mitsubishi will launch the first Collaborative Robot in 2018 which designed to have a payload of 5 kg and a touch-screen teach pendant on the front of the 5th axis. The interface to teach will be based on ‘Apps’ .
One of the new products is the MELIPC from Mitsubishi Electric what will facilitate the EDGECROSS platform for IIoT applications and will be launched in 2018. The MELIPC can be used in various solutions like Condition Monitoring, Production Performance (OEE) and Energy Management.

A*STAR and SPRING Singapore bundled their strengths to organize an Industrial Internet Of Things (IIoT) Technology Seminar on Tuesday, 7 November 2017. A*STAR and IIoT solution providers shared the latest IIoT trends and success stories in the manufacturing. IIoT is a relatively new for Singapore local manufacturers and this seminar contributes to the understanding about IIoT and how to capitalize this concept.
Pumas Automation & Robotics was honoured to be invited to share knowledge about the implementation of IIoT solutions and touched on the international standards ANSI/ISA-95, which provide manufacturers tools to map their current and future IT landscape.
A*STAR conducted a technology roadmapping session to help the local food manufacturers to identify the areas where IIoT can help, the current hurdles and to define the needs for IIoT solutions.
Pumas Automation & Robotics would like to thank government agency for organizing this successful seminar to share the importance of the Digital Connected Factory into Singapore.
