JUKI to Release “IS (Intelligent Shopfloor Solutions)” System Software
for Electronic Component Mounting after Major Renewal .

 JUKI Corporation, a company listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange and headed by President Kazuyuki Nakamura, is to begin worldwide sales this month of “IS (Intelligent Shopfloor Solutions)”, a new type of system software for controlling groups of mounters.
 The “IS (Intelligent Shopfloor Solutions)” software that is to be newly sold this time is a system product that functions as software to “allow handling of a number of linked mounters as though they are a single unit” through making practical use of the “Host Line Computer (HLC)” which has supported the modular concept, together with bar codes. In addition to reorganizing and greatly improving the “Setup Control System (SCS)” software that realizes component mounting error prevention and traceability, the range covered has been broadened from production lines to the entire shop floor to support the “change to overall plant efficiency” and “further improvement in quality”.
 “IS” consists of five types of software divided according to function, together with groups of options for further improving the added value.
 The software programs divided according to function incorporate functions that support each of the roles of operators, program creators, plant managers, and facility managers to aid the realization of “Floor Visualization”, “Floor Overall Production Plan Establishment”, “Floor Overall Production Effect Improvement”, “Program Efficiency Improvement”, and “Product Quality Improvement”.
 Further, a characteristic of this “IS” system is the utilization of RFID (IC tags) for securing complete component mounting error prevention. In addition to offering a lineup of models with ATF, CTF, FTF and other feed cassettes incorporating RFID tags, RFID kits are being prepared which make it possible for customers to add RFID tags to the feeder cassettes that they already own. Further, models supporting tray component supply equipment and models for the TR Series are also available.
 The utilization of RFID (IC tags) enables understanding not only of the feeder cassette mounting status in the mounter main unit, but also allows “visualization” of the component condition throughout the whole shop floor, including for feeder cassettes and components mounted in bulk replacement trolleys and feeder stockers that incorporate RFID reading antennas.
 In addition, this new type IS system software incorporates new functions including “Feeder Management Functions (Location Searching, Component Expiry Advance Warning, and Feeder Maintenance Management)”, “Floor Overall Production Planning”, “Production Status Monitoring”, and “On-Demand Production” as a system product that not only improves the mounting line productivity, but also supports requirements for improving the productivity of the entire shop floor.
 The “IS” Intelligent Shopfloor Solutions system will be shown in the JUKI booth (East Hall 1 No.1A-01) at the JISSO PROTEC 2009 Exhibition that will be held in the Tokyo Big Sight (Tokyo International Exhibition Center) between June 3 and 5 this year.
