iLNB: line management system
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.
