FAS Solutions Seminar Was Held Successfully

The FAS Solutions Seminar was organized by Flexible Automation System which was held in September 2018 in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Malacca and Johor Bahru. Over 250 attendees have attended the seminars, including our solution partners representatives.

Our sales team presented the concept of SMART Manufacturing and IIoT and the latest trends of laser marking, machine vision, robotics including the collaborative robot and sensorization to secure human safety.

During our seminar we had a real-life showcase. This Mini Factory with robotics produces customised USB flash drive as give-aways for our guests and is fully-integrated with our IIoT Platform. This IIoT platform provides real-time information for you as production, maintenance and quality staff. Every attendee received as a present the customised USB flash drive with their name which was made by our Mini Factory showcase.

The seminar was very successful with very positive feedback from the attendees. In 2019, we will continue the seminar in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.

Robot Creates Safer Workplace

One of our clients is a famous manufacturer in electronics with a worldwide presence. Goals are to optimize the soldering process from manual to automated process. In the current process, the wires are soldered onto the PCB board by operators.

The client wants to offer a safer environment for his operators and want to increase the throughput and quality of the production process at the same time. The use of the robotics solution makes the client able to re-deploy his staff for other production activities.

CUSTOMER JOURNEY

Our client started to research what are the latest innovations and technology. The FAS solution team offers consultation to translate the customer requirements into the solution and selected the latest technology that is able to integrate with the current production process. After onsite survey and testing, the solutions matched the requirements and the client authorized FAS to implement the solution.

The FAS solution team unburden the customer by consultation and will take responsibility for the overall project implementation. The planning for the project execution is in close cooperation with the customer project team to avoid any possibility of disturbing the production process. After the implementation FAS will provide training for the operators and maintenance engineers for optimum performance.
