Integration Services

How well do you know and understand your automated equipment? Do you have a real-time visual of in-process parts and are able to gauge and control the level of quality? JR Automation's integration teams can help you monitor and control your processes—collecting data along the way—to ensure that your systems operate at their full potential.

Software Integration

Software Integration

Our Software Integration team brings together 15 years of experience in creating software to focus on three pillars of software solutions: Big Data, Process Improvement, and Software R&D. This enables us to bring our customers more connected machines, optimized processes, and knowledge of emerging technologies.

Software R&D

Big Data

This group's work with Big Data turns vast amounts of production data into concise numbers that help our customers optimize their processes. Examples include:
  • Andon display boards that increase visibility of a machine's current status and production counts
  • Data collection, mining, and analytics programs
  • Integrating equipment with existing customer MES systems and other business systems

Process Improvement

Process Improvement means leveraging custom developed software to optimize tasks and processes further than typical automation hardware capabilities. Examples include:

  • Custom Internet-based recipe management portals that allow our customers to configure a wider range of parts¬†
  • Custom software programs that allow customers to import CAD data and then mathematically optimize robot paths to reduce cycle times
  • Software which can automatically synchronize existing robot programs

Software R&D

The group's R&D work monitors macro industry trends and then uses software to rapidly prototype products to determine the feasibility of integrating new technology into our customer solutions. The Software Integration Team has already developed:
  • Operator guidance platforms with consumer devices like Google Glass and Microsoft Kinect
  • Mobile phones and other non-standard industrial tools that connect to the internet to increase machine visibility and expand machine functionality
  • An understanding of the application of collaborative robots, which can work directly with operators without mechanical guarding
Business Integration

Business Integration

We can integrate existing network and software with equipment to create manufacturing systems that are easy to control and run.

The benefit of this approach is manufacturing systems that are easier to control and run while increasing throughput and reducing production downtime.

  • Statistical Process Control (SPC)
  • In-Process Gauging
  • Data Collection
The JR team provided a solution that required only one machine--instead of four--and a vastly reduced cycle time.
