Machine Monitoring and Indication Solutions

Wireless monitoring and indication products from Banner Engineering can increase productivity, reduce downtime, and provide data to optimize your operation. Banner’s wireless products eliminate expensive cable runs, are easy to install and set up, and can integrate machines that were not previously network capable.

Any delays during sample processing reduces the overall efficiency of the clinical laboratory and in a busy setting such as a lab, machine processes could be overlooked. Adding exterior indication lights onto laboratory automation equipment is an easy way to provide clear machine status alerts for the clinician so the task can be completed quickly. 

Using a TL70 Modular Tower Light with a wireless radio base improves machine monitoring and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) by expanding available data beyond the local indication a standard tower light provides.

Increase production efficiency by developing a wireless call-for-parts, service, and Andon system that allows for up to 35 work stations to call out to 12 forklifts/Hi-Los using the EZ-Light K70 Touch to wireless Direct Select operator interface. This provides for quicker responses from forklift drivers and/or supervisors to indicate a request has been accepted. When creating a call system using wireless indicators, work stations can maintain a steady workflow and resolve critical issues quickly.

Real-time monitoring of machine status allows supervisors to address any issues as they arise, minimizing machine downtime and potentially resolving small issues before they become big problems. Providing clear indication of status at a machine is a necessary requirement. Communicating that status information from a machine to other devices makes it possible for personnel to monitor multiple machines on a factory floor from a convenient location.

Assembly workers need the correct supplies in order to build products and maintain a smooth workflow. Restocking assembly stations on-time, before components run out without overstocking and creating congestion at a station can be a challenge. Real-time communication between assemblers and the forklift operators who stock their stations enables a more efficient delivery of components as well as the timely removal of completed products.

Assembly station workers build products, pack completed products into boxes, and load the filled boxes onto a pallet. A completed pallet must be quickly removed from the station to allow the assembly worker to begin building a new pallet. An Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) is used to collect and remove complete pallets.

In an automotive assembly plant forklifts often carry large loads that are difficult to see around. In high traffic areas, gates are used to restrict foot traffic and protect staff.

Increasing production line efficiency is always a top concern for plant and production managers. Reducing the amount of time machines are down or not operating at an optimal rate is an easy way to increase overall efficiency.

M12 Temperature and Humidity Sensors are used to monitor conditions inside each control panel. Each sensor is directly connected to a Q45TH, a self-contained, battery powered wireless node that easily integrates into a robust, scalable Sure Cross® wireless network.

As consumers demand more options in the products they choose the manufacturing processes that produce those products become more complex. Providing workers with clear guidance for assembly minimizes the potential for errors, especially with frequent changes to product requirements. Providing manufacturers with the ability to easily reconfigure and move assembly stations can have real benefits for production efficiency and space utilization.

Adding monitoring capabilities to legacy equipment. Collecting data from multiple points on a large production line. Rewiring sensors to accommodate frequent product changeover.

Autonomous vehicle technology is rapidly developing and growing in popularity around the world. Self-driving cars and shuttles may have seemed unlikely in the past, but automation advancements, plus a renewed interest in environmental concerns and accident reduction, have reinvigorated autonomous technology. Vehicles now have the capabilities to sense the surrounding area and navigate to its destination without driver navigation.

Complex machines require panels capable of supporting multiple functions. Machine panels with many buttons and indicators can complicate communication and hinder machine operation.
