The OEM eventually settled on Mitsubishi Electric and, after initial success with VFDs, soon adopted servo motors, PLCs, cables and HMIs from the same supplier.

e-F@ctory in action

The application of e-F@ctory at Mitsubishi Electric’s Kani manufacturing facility, part of its Nagoya Works, Japan, has led to a number of hugely beneficial outcomes. For instance, by redesigning the process and reintegrating a human element where there was once 100% automation, a single line that previously occupied 280sqm has been reduced to a cell of just 44.1sqm. This 84% reduction in space means that the productivity of each square metre of production hall had been increased through greater utilisation.
