A Leading German Automobile Manufacturer Implements Advantech’s Solutions at its Engine Factory in Shenyang, China
Applied Product: PWS-870
In January 2016, the client company, a leading German automobile manufacturer, opened a new engine factory in Shenyang, China. For the client, this factory was not only its first engine factory located outside Europe, but also the only one of its factories to include casting, machining, assembly, and battery-related operations. Moreover, the factory harnesses all of the company’s advanced engine production technology, and the equipment and standards used for the final assembly line are the same as those implemented at its European factories.
At the company’s engine factory in Germany, assembly line workers use Advantech’s PWS-870 tablets, which are renowned for their reliability and high performance. Therefore, PWS-870 tablets were the company’s first choice of device for their newly established factory.
On the factory floor, a machining accuracy of at least 6 microns (equal to one-quarter of the width of a single human hair) is required. This is because precision machining and assembly invariably
PWS-870 tablets connected to the factory intranet and integrated with barcode scanners via their USB ports are used to receive material retrieval orders sent from the back-end control center. By following the order instructions, workers are able to easily retrieve materials and distribute components to the appropriate location for assembly.
Equipped with advanced communication technologies and custom ERP software, PWS-870 enables efficient, optimized production by facilitating real-time monitoring, material retrieval management, component distribution, and effective resource allocation.
On the factory floor, every stage of the assembly process includes a quality control station for ensuring consistent quality. Every casted component has a QR code that must be scanned using the PWS-870 tablet before it moves onto the next stage of assembly. In this way, a clear production record is created for every engine to enable product tracing at any stage of production or assembly. Should an error occur, the workstation responsible can be identified via the QR code. Furthermore, the use of PWS-870 tablets to scan product QR codes and transmit the collected data to the back-end database in real time enables managers to monitor all operations and ensure that relevant standards and regulations are met.
