- FMS Lines (Lights Out Machining)
This session will discuss the various types of automation devices that make lights-out manufacturing possible. The advantages and challenges of each will be discussed. There are supporting technologies like tool life management and metrology that are critical to lights-out as well as the need to prepare the equipment for unattended manufacturing with items like larger tool capacity, larger capacity lube tanks and agile workholding. Notification of the status of the cell during unattended operation (IIoT) is also critical to ensure the highest utilization of the investment. Lastly, but very important, is the human talent needed to maintain these very productive systems.
