[Enterprise News, September 14, 2017] With the slogan of Industry 4.0, smart manufacturing has been the goal of active transformation of various manufacturing industries. However, in the traditional textile industry, knowledge and technology are inherited through new information and new technologies. In the process of manufacturing automation, we are facing the following difficult issues:
I. Co-existence of new and old devices is not easy
Most of the equipments on the production line of textile mills are mostly purchased in stages and gradually expanded in parallel or vertically, resulting in the situation where the old, middle and blue generations of machines and equipments are brought together. The solutions for networking devices on the market are incompatible with each other and unfavorable development. Equipment connection applications after networking.
Second, the master’s experience cannot be passed down
Textile mills have long relied on the experience and technology of the master craftsman to maintain their production quality. However, new generations of young people lack the interest in transferring production, and their production experience and technology cannot be passed on, which results in unmatched production parameters, yields and quality.
Three,Complex and bulky data is difficult to apply
Several kinds of machines and sensing devices existing in a single factory may be provided by one or more service providers, resulting in the independence of various machine equipments. However, the collected information cannot be integrated and cross-used, resulting in huge and complex data volume. It is difficult to respond to the needs of the textile industry.
Fourth, green energy consciousness rises and vertical integration threshold height
With the rise of environmental issues, the maximization of energy use is also a long-term goal of the company’s efforts. However, energy use is closely related to all aspects of the textile production line, but few operators can simultaneously provide a complete solution for the vertical integration of energy and textile production lines. The program, resulting in energy waste is not easy to find and improve.
The textile industry supply chain can be simply divided into the most upstream fibers, midstream spinning, weaving, dyeing and finishing, and downstream clothing and retail. The more upstream manufacturers are relying on machinery and equipment production, the greater the scale of equipment, and the emphasis on production automation. In the middle and lower reaches of the manufacturing industry, manpower is the mainstay, and the machines and machines are supplemented. Therefore, promoting smart manufacturing becomes textile. In the industry, the primary goal of the midstream and downstream manufacturers.
However, moving from traditional manufacturing to smart manufacturing has a long introduction process and the first step in promoting Industry 4.0 is to start with energy management. Sinay Technology Co., Ltd., which is a spin-off from the Information Industry Consulting Group, is to help companies step up to Industry 4.0, from the most front-of-the-line plant energy management to the intelligent manufacturing network, or even further According to the intelligence analysis after the collection of factory and process parameters, with the complete solution and experience of deep research and development in the funding strategy for many years, Sinarchi has already had experience in importing hundreds of cases.
Sinacraft and Dingxin MES manufacturing executive system docking, in the middle of the textile before the process, the production of more machines in the hours of work, production, yield, connected to the Internet of things, visualization of manufacturing process history, shorten weaving preparation time Improving the efficiency of weaving mills and reducing the rate of cloth products.
In terms of smart energy management, Sinar launched the “In-EMS Enterprise Energy Management Solution”, which is a solution designed for the major energy consumption of water, electricity, oil and gas, and safety at the factory, and is provided through multiple management solutions. For equipment monitoring, report management, expert diagnosis and other functions, to help companies improve the efficiency of energy use, but also let the factory in the smart manufacturing to create a stable foundation.
Electricity can manage the program to instantly monitor power status, data collection and statistical analysis through the cloud platform, implement electricity billing and monitor equipment power usage, demand management solutions Assist factories in setting optimal contractual capacity, optimize the use of electricity in enterprises, and further use electricity security solutions for plant safety issues. Monitor the temperature of the distribution board through the cloud 24 hours a day, and set the upper temperature alarm value, so that the power safety management can be greatly improved. Raise to avoid major disasters.
In addition, we provide intelligent inspection programs for the periodic inspections that are the most troublesome for the management in the factory buildings to make the inspections smarter. By combining the Wi-Fi communication positioning technology and the cloud-based wisdom management platform, we can maintain people, machines, and objects in the process management system. The five key points of the law and the environment are to implement inspection operations and reduce labor costs. Air conditioning and air pressure management program monitoring data, abnormal operation alarms, and related operations are collected through the cloud for the most energy-consuming air-conditioning, air-conditioning, and air-conditioning in the plant. Parameters, to further provide management personnel energy consumption diagnosis analysis; In addition, for the water quality management of textile mills also pay attention to the introduction of water quality monitoring program to fully monitor the waste water discharge, to ensure that water treatment meets regulatory standards, and reduce water treatment costs.
In addition, in terms of factory lighting and indoor air quality, Schnauzer also provides indoor lighting solutions to intelligentize the lighting of the factory, and indoor air quality programs to ensure that the indoor environment maintains good comfort. In addition to managing the energy in the plant, Sonajet has also made a name for renewable energy, providing renewable energy solutions to make renewable energy and power generation information more transparent, and building smart monitoring networks according to different field requirements.
The Schnauzer team assisted in promoting the smart manufacturing platform focused on the textile industry through the multi-year plan of the Ministry of Economic Affairs’ productivity 4.0. With years of experience accumulated, it has launched a smart networking solution for exclusive textile manufacturing processes, and is deeply rooted in the weaving industry. The three main element yarns (raw materials), blank cloths (semi-finished products) and finished cloths (finished products) managed by the master’s whole, pulp, blend, and warp (after Piece Dye dyeing as an example). In the future, how the Taiwanese textile industry develops smart manufacturing based on IT information technology will be an important issue that must be considered under the trend of Industry 4.0.
