Sustain manufacturing system
performance with data-driven decisions.

Illuminate™ Manufacturing Intelligence is a production performance monitoring system that simplifies the collection and analysis of data from automated manufacturing systems. With Illuminate software installed, your operations and maintenance personnel can quickly understand what is going on and prioritize actions.

ATS machines are built for serviceability and equipped with Illuminate software to accelerate ramp-up. Once steady-state, production operations are achieved, Illuminate software delivers data-driven insights to uncover opportunities for improvement, leading to significant gains in operational efficiency.

Visibility into your equipment’s performance

Diagnose and make OEE better

Anticipate component degradation to head off stoppages

Identify and prioritize potential issues sooner

Capture availability and minimise unplanned downtime

Eliminate rejects causing most scrap & energy waste

Determine why and where to more effectively increase throughput

Monitor energy per part to calculate carbon footprint
For ATS machines equipped with electrical and pneumatic metering and the Illuminate™ Energy and Emissions Add-on Module delivers energy and carbon footprint summaries with total and per part energy and CO2 equivalent consumption information.

Isolate equipment behavior anomalies
The Illuminate™ Predictive Maintenance Add-on Module analyzes device cycle time data, identifies patterns, and assigns a device level health score to assist in isolating equipment behavior anomalies.
Health scoring flags suspect devices exhibiting changes in frequency or performance so repair actions can be taken to address and pre-empt unnecessary downtime.

Generate SPC charts on demand, over any time range, for any machine
The Illuminate™ Statistical Process Control (SPC) Add-on Module is a value logging function that tracks specific equipment measurement data, processes statistical calculations including Cp, Cpk, Mean, Minimum, and Maximum values, and then allows for display of variances between carriers or nests.

React faster to production issues
Plant floor diagram in optional Interactive Line Layout depicts real-time status of every machine or cell in your line and its upstream and downstream effect.

Performance Analysis

The purpose of the Illuminate Performance Analysis Module is to help users diagnose and make OEE better.

Simply put, it’s a problem-solving tool that boils the complexity down into an intuitive very easy to use interface. Illuminate software is essential for our ATS machine builders to fine tune the machine before delivery to our customers and then it remains with the machine throughout its life.

Once onsite, Performance Analysis provides reports and notifies customer’s operations and maintenance teams so they can respond to issues quickly, unlock hidden performance, and make continuous improvements. Knowing where and why events occur along with successive layers of detail is key to informing decisions. It pinpoints where to focus efforts to reduce downtime, realize OEE gains, maximize line throughput, and improve product quality.
