TORRANCE, CA | Patlite introduces VE Series Visual LED Display Boards. These rugged “Andon” systems provide real-time production status indication to alert workers and supervisors to manufacturing productivity. The series provides four-digit, three-terminal “Plan,” “Actual,” and “Status” indication with 25-mm digits or 100-mm digits for varying applications needs.
“The ability to get visual feedback in real-time is vital for ‘visual factories’ seeking to achieve Kaizen, and the VE series LED display boards are a simple and economical lean manufacturing system that help them do that,” says marketing manager Paul Mizuki. “The bottom line is that real-time visual feedback improves manufacturing productivity, reduces downtime, and minimizes waste.”
Display boards can be used as a stand-alone solution, or up to 32 units can be combined for large-scale serial network applications. The three terminal output can be combined with signal tower, audible annunciator, or hybrid solution.
