Factory Automation Systems

Technology and know-how for the achievement of superior automation and mechanization.

Backed by a quarter century of achievement and expertise in product automation in bearing, steering, and other manufacturing, Koyo has developed its own FA system, combining two technological advances: "automatic checking" to inspect the precision of the product, and "automated assembly" to move, fix, and assemble the pieces. Koyo has developed our latest technology to create mechanized manufacturing processes that cater to our customers in the automobile and electronic industries who are moving toward automation. Our newest software integrates sensors at each process, and constructs the actual system efficiently and accurately.

Types of Systems:

Finished Product Checking System

Our comprehensive checking system has an automatic checking and sorting system built into the final stages of production. By combining image-processing technology with optical sensors and CCD cameras, it checks the external appearance of a product and detects defective products by listening to the frequency of sounds generated during the production process. High sensitivity sensors and cutting edge measuring devices add high value to this system.

Automated Assembly Systems

Automated assembly systems are faster and more accurate than manual labor systems. These systems feature equipment that boasts exceptional “hand-eye” coordination and offers high levels of skill, acting as an extension to the excellent abilities of human eye and hand. They not only handle tasks involving delicate coordination - such as putting two parts together, they also have keen sensors that visually distinguish parts and use a sense of “touch” (pressure) to determine the status of a workpiece.

Automatic Checking and Sorting System

The two key elements of FA systems are automated checking / sorting, and automated assembly. An automated checking and sorting process requires sensors that function much like human eyes, ears, and hands to recognize the status of both workpiece and the machine tools. A computer, which serves as the system’s brain and is linked to previous and subsequent tasks, is needed to evaluate the process of the workpiece. It then determines the milling precision needed and sends the corresponding instructions to the machine tools. Here, laser based measuring devices and other advanced, highly sensitive optical sensors serve as “eyes.” They check the workpiece and output information to the computer, which provides automatic real-time control over the machine tools.
