iLNB: line management system

iLNB, for line management, provides complete control over the entire production line, including non-Panasonic equipment, for higher productivity.

Features

The revolutionary integrated  line  management  system  is  the basis for  controlling the  entire  production line. It  is  not limited  to  Panasonic machines but  also  integrates  third-party  equipment such as PCB transfer systems, laser markers, AOI, SPI and ovens.

Conventional systems require a number of PCs to control different machine types from different suppliers. The iLNB controls the entire line with only one PC.  iLNB  significantly improves overall  productivity.  Production  data  and  production  changeover  of  all equipment, such as Panasonic’s placement machines as well as non-Panasonic machines including AOI, SPI, reflow  ovens  and  others,  can  be  controlled.  All  collected  data  are  transferred  to  a remote central computer.

Small  errors such  as pick-up  errors  can  be recovered from  that  central  point.  Automatic production changeover is also possible.

With the iLNB, users can manage automatic product changeovers and have an E-Link which provides an interface for information input and output, for machine control, management of components per feeder, and communication with a GEM/PLC.

iLNB provides total control of the production line by interfacing between Panasonic and non-Panasonic machines, acting as one-stop channel.

With the iLNB Users can manage automatic product changeovers and have an E-Link which provides an interface for information in- and output, for machine control, management of component per feeder and a communication to GEM/PLC.
