[Digifof industry case] Systems for the complete traceability of assembled components and a guided pipeline in assembly operations

The DIGIFOF project proposes a network of training environments where HEIs, enterprises and training insitutions come together to develop skill profiles, training concepts as well as materials for design aspects of the Factory of the Future (FoF). This article is part of the series of case studies developed through this project.


Context : SME company operating in the manufacturing industry, more precisely within the machinery sector.

This company (company B) has an expertise in the field of mechatronics and is active in the design and realization of solutions for the automatization of the assembling and testing process of several products.

Issue : Products are mainly assembled manually by the customer without an assisted guide ; moreover, traceability of various phase was not ensured.

Goal : The goal of the solution proposed was to improve the flexibility and the global efficiency of the production process. Company B targeted to elaborate a system able to guarantee the complete traceability of the assembled components as well as assisting operators during those phases of the process that are not fully automated.

Solution : The solution elaborated for customers improves the assembling process of a particular product. In the end, the company studied has built a mechatronic system equiped with a barcode. This system was able to track the components' assembling thanks to this barcode. Furthermore, to satisfy the need of flexibility and as equipment are interchangeable, the system had all the products coded and was able to check if a product fit the equipment.

Learn more about the implementation of the solution and key skills required to achieve this solution in the study case.
