Machine: Fanuc Robodrill
Material: Stainless Steel
Customer has cells of 4-6 Robodrills cutting a variety of different part programs. Customer needed a way for the operator to be alerted when a machine had completed its cycle.
Using Caron Engineering’s Smart Light System, the lights were mounted at even intervals to show the status of each part program. Lights would change from green to yellow to red, and then trigger the audible alarm at the end of the cycle.
Now, the operator does not need to continuously walk from machine to machine to check the control screens. The lights show at a glance where each machine is in the part cycle. So machines are spending less time in idle, thereby increasing productivity
