April 10, 2019 – FANUC America, supplier of robotics, CNCs, and machine tools, is demonstrating its Zero Down Time (ZDT) Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution at Automate 2019 in Chicago this week.
FANUC is showcasing an all-new augmented reality (AR) experience featuring a variety of manufacturing situations where ZDT can help. The experience includes six common manufacturing challenges printed on two graphic display panels that simulate manufacturing facilities. Each story will have a 3D image with markers that connect to a mobile app.
The company says ZDT’s predictive analytics prevent unexpected downtime in the automotive industry. Now, small to medium-sized manufacturers are realizing there is even more to ZDT than downtime avoidance. In addition to reducing unexpected downtime, ZDT allows users to maximize production throughput, optimize maintenance costs, increase the life of their robots, and access data from anywhere via the ZDT web portal.
Since its introduction in 2015, ZDT analytics have successfully identified potential equipment issues, and notified customers to take corrective actions and avoid unexpected down time in over 600 cases, saving companies more than $75 million.
