Find production stoppages and deviations quickly

The automotive industry is one of the most advanced industrial sectors. The high degree of automation enables high production efficiency and excellent product quality for large volumes.
However, an automated production or transport with self-driving AGVs is vulnerable to errors, deviations, production stops and micro-stops. The loss of available production time and the time spent by technicians on troubleshooting means a large cost to the manufacturer.
Therefore, it is important for production and maintenance engineers to identify the root cause of a failure as quickly as possible. The troubleshooting process can be difficult and time-consuming. Common but inconvenient methods of troubleshooting are waiting at the machine or searching through hours of video recorded with a regular camera to see what caused a stop.

The camera records deviations and stops

The Eye at Production camera system is developed to monitor highly automated production flows and robot cells. Eye at Production combines the intelligence of a vision system with the flexibility of a GoPro camera. It records and marks deviations, stops and other details. Instead of manual monitoring or hours of footage to go through, you'll find what you're looking for right away. The system is flexible and can be installed anywhere.

See exactly what happened

Eye at Production records film on the suspect area of ​​the production line. When the production line stops, a smart sensor detects this and signals the stop to the camera. All relevant clips with errors are highlighted, enabling you to see exactly what happened and take immediate action.
A technician thus saves time compared to the alternatives of standing by the machine or searching for the fault in a long video where the camera does not register stops or other deviations.

How it works

1. Mount

Mount Eye at Production where you assume the cause of the error occurs. The system is easy to handle and install. The camera has an IP68 rating against drops and dust.

2. Monitor:

Select the mode, for example to detect all stops in the production flow longer than a certain time. Put the system on play.

3. Analyze:

You get an overview of all error events and can easily navigate to the relevant seconds in the video to see exactly what happened.

Here you use Eye at Production

The demands in the industry are only getting higher and the processes must be efficient. Eye at Production is installed anywhere in the production, detects stops in the flow, shows relevant clips and is easy to use. Quick to assemble, flexible to move around.
Recurring stops:
Faults can occur in a variety of places. Eye at Production is mounted anywhere on the production line to identify stoppages.
Recurring quality deviations:
A robot may need to be adjusted or a product is misplaced on the belt. Eye at Production finds the reason for the discrepancy.
What is the reason for the recurring fault? Set Eye at Production to what it should register and you will soon know the reason.
Did the product enter the wrong position or was it the robot that placed it incorrectly on the pallet? With Eye at Production you see exactly what happened.
Micro stop:
The proportion of expensive micro-stops in production lines is almost always more than industries think. Discover, analyze and eliminate them.
Bottleneck analysis:
Eliminating bottlenecks is important in all industries. With Eye at Production you get material to analyze cycle times, throughput and waiting times.
Health check:
Eye at Production allows you to easily move around the production just to make cuts and see that everything is working as it should.
Availability analysis:
Lack of availability in production can be due to a high percentage of unplanned downtime. Eliminate them using Eye at Production.
With one or more Eye at Production around the production, you get film material to get close to the industrial process and make it more efficient.
When installing new machines, stations, cells, palletizers or robots, it is important to be able to monitor the use during the first period.
