Manufacturing Industry Solution VisuaLine improved efficiency of Shimadzu physics and chemistry instruments factories by 15 percent

"Productivity has improved by 15 percent since the implementation of FUJITSU VisuaLine and we expect further increased productivity by tackling unsolved problems."

Kazushi Yoshihisa General Manager Manufacturing Center, Shimadzu

Shimadzu has deployed FUJITSU VisuaLine to more efficiently identify manufacturing defects during the production process, improving productivity by 15 percent.

Customer

Shimadzu Corporation was established by Genzo Shimadzu in 1875 to manufacture physics and chemistry instruments in Kyoto. The company’s technical capability was proven when one of its employees became the fi rst researcher working at a private company to win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. The company has contributed greatly towards the development of Japanese manufacturing technologies by developing the most advanced, high-quality analytical and measuring instruments.

Challenge

Shimadzu found that problems on its SMT production line were diffi cult to identify and time-consuming to resolve, leading to bottlenecks and ineffi ciencies. The company wanted to fi nd a smarter approach to monitoring production.

Solution

After evaluating the market, Shimadzu turned to FUJITSU VisuaLine, an IoT solution that visualizes the operational status of the manufacturing process, enabling it to quickly discover anomalies that would not otherwise be discovered.

Benefit

  • Productivity has improved by 15 percent in six months
  • Clear graphical representation of the print board production line improves operational effi ciency
  • Visualizing data makes issues easily recognizable and speeds resolution time
  • Bottlenecks have been eliminated and pre-operation set-up time has been reduced
