Banner Helps Improve Efficiencies in Assembly and Manufacturing
A broad range of assembly methods are adopted by manufacturers to meet their production requirements for volume, product mix and cost structure. From manual work stations where operator experience is fundamental for product assembly to highly automated production lines utilizing robotics in the manufacture of goods, maximizing production efficiency and ensuring product quality is critical to a manufacturer’s competitiveness in the global market place.
Every day, solutions from Banner Engineering are helping manufacturers gain a competitive edge. Our industry knowledge and expertise in sensors, safety control, wireless I/O and LED lighting is helping manufacturers enhance their production processes, address machine safeguarding requirements and ensure high levels of product quality. We have a solid network of knowledgeable channel partners and the largest team of applications engineers in the industry, all able to draw on a catalog of over 30,000 products designed and developed to solve problems.
When a window is located directly behind a cabinet, extremely bright, long lasting LED indicator lights can provide highly visible indication throughout the day. Banner’s EZ-LIGHT K50 Beacon is perfect for many indication status applications, especially in this cabinet because the beacon is highly visible even during daylight and is extremely durable with long-lasting, energy-efficient LEDs.
A system of Banner’s TL70 wireless modular tower lights and K50 touch buttons provides an efficient, easy way to communicate a call for more parts with a forklift driver. When a workstation is almost out of cartons, the operator touches the ergonomic K50 touch button which changes the status on the connected TL70 wireless tower light to red.
Finding a high-intensity, ultra-bright lighting solution for manufacturing can be challenging. Since multiple lights are required to properly illuminate areas on a conveyor, a simple mounting option to connect lights together is needed.
During assembly, inspections are conducted to measure seat height adjustment, forward and rearward movement, and upright and recline motion. Two sensors are used for each inspection. The sensors are deployed off the conveyor line to ensure easy access to and the free movement of the seats. At its maximum range during inspection, a seat may be as far as a meter away from the sensors.
