Motorizing the removal of defective products made high speed possible and lowered costs.

[Issues Until Now]

  • An air cylinder was used for the movement of the plate that removes defective products.
  • Adjusting air pressure was difficult, and removal speed was unstable. This caused defective products to get stuck on the entry of the conveyor when the speed became low.
  • The speed of the removal conveyor was set slow to ensure the removal of defective products.

[Improvement with Motorization]

  • Removal speed was stabilized. This prevented defective items from getting caught at the entrance of the removal conveyor.
  • The speed of the removal conveyor was raised.

[Improvement Results]

  • Line speed increased by 40%
  • Production per day increased from 15,000 units to 21,000 units (1 line)
  • Line Stoppage Resolved ・ Labor Cost Reduced
  • Annual Labor Cost Reduction Effect of $1,800
