Error Proofing | Poka-Yoke
Reduce the amount of defects by incorporating the Assembly Qualifier (AQ). The AQ provides that next level of security through error proofing. Simply connect the controller to a PLC for capturing OK/NOK torque events to be sure all fasteners are installed correctly to prevent defects from moving down the assembly line.
Assembly Qualifier Programming Software
The simple to use AQ software allows for quick programming of the AQ because all of the settings are consolidated into one page. Therefore we’ve eliminated the need to hunt for hidden settings. Easily and quickly create, backup or restore controller setting within seconds of connecting to an AQ controller.
Secure Tool Communication
The AQ uses Xbee, a form of Zigbee, to communicate wirelessly with Panasonic assembly tools providing an interference free network. Due to the frequency that Xbee uses no other wireless devices are affected by our signal.
Operator Visual Indicator
Reduce the overall assembly process time with an operator visual for OK / NOK and Batch Complete status. The highly visible display can be seen over 20' away. The adjustable audible tone registers up to 85 db to notify the operator of a pass or failed fastener. This visual and audio feedback helps the operator know whether to move on to the next fastener or stop and rework the product.
