How do ONERugged rugged mobile PCs enable automation of machinery manufacturing?

It has gradually entered the era of industrial information in recent years. In the new era of industry, automation is an important basis and development direction for manufacturing. Manufacturing automation not only has an obvious effect on promoting industrial upgrading, but also can save energy, reduce consumption, save labor costs, and have great potential for future development. To some enterprises that have realized basic automation, how to move towards process digitization and explore intelligent management is their main problem.

Take steel welding as an example. China is the world's largest steel producer and consumer, so welding has an important strategic position for the development of China's manufacturing industry. The welding site is often accompanied by unstable conditions such as steel splashing, dust flying, and signal obstruction, so the equipment and operating terminals need to be more stringent than ordinary equipment for ruggedness, stability, and safety. Enterprises need to use professional and rugged intelligent equipment to achieve automated welding, but the current consumer mobile equipment can not meet this demand. This is where the ONERugged rugged mobile PC, designed for use in harsh environments, becomes the first choice of manufacturing enterprises.

The ONERugged rugged mobile PCs cover 8-inch to 12.2-inch screens for industrial portability, and combine reliable robustness with powerful computing performance. Its rigorously sealed body is designed to withstand fine particles from welding sites, the shock of crashes, and maintain normal and stable operation in extreme temperatures ranging from -20°C to 60°C. The whole series is equipped with multi-platform processors and Windows/ Android operating systems, which can be adapted to the enterprise self-developed system or welding robot program, playing the maximum compatibility, executing multiple tasks simultaneously, and processing data information quickly.

ONERugged rugged mobile PCs with dual built-in front and rear cameras support high-definition imaging and display, and output integrated information while detecting small welds, solving the problems of thin plate joints, and tracking welding position. If the workpieces are found to have shape and position deviation before welding, the welding trajectory can be corrected in advance.

For the welding work of the enterprise that has realized basic automation, operators can take ONERugged rugged mobile PCs as the lead to cooperate with the robots or welding system to complete the welding details and monitor the welding effect of the robot in real time. Additionally, the ONERugged mobile PC’s HD screen outputs intuitive and reliable information to help the operators find problems and adjust in time. With stable dual-band WiFi, 4G, Bluetooth, and other network communication connections, welding data can be uploaded to the system background anytime and anywhere for follow-up tracking and regular cleaning and maintenance of welding equipment, to maximize the quality and efficiency of welding operations.

Optimize resource allocation

Due to the professionalism of welding work, there are also high requirements for the technical ability of operators, but the resources of technical personnel available for deployment are limited, which increases the difficulty of employing enterprises to a certain extent. After the ONERugged mobile PC is equipped for the welding station, the welding work that originally needed to be completed by many operators, now an operator can use the rugged mobile PC to cooperate with other automatic technologies or systems to monitor and complete welding, so that human resources can be fully utilized and deployed, reducing labor costs and maintenance costs.

Improve welding efficiency

The production speed of the original manual welding is extremely slow. Now the ONERugged rugged mobile PC can be cooperated with welding robot or enterprise self-developed system program. Its easy-to-use operating system reduces the difficulty of operations, so that even ordinary operators can be skilled in operation, and the automatic welding efficiency is rapidly improved.

Visual process management

Through the ONERugged rugged mobile PC and the welding operating system, operators can monitor and view the robot welding trajectory, welding progress, and workpiece quality in real time, and view highly integrated information at any time in its high-definition and high-brightness screen that is not affected by strong sunlight, so that operators can keep track of the work situation and problems at any time to achieve visual management.

Industrial-grade protection

The ONERugged rugged mobile PC is protected by IP65 industrial-grade and has passed the MIL-STD-810H test standard to operate normally and efficiently in extreme temperatures from -20°C to 60°C, and can maintain normal operation even when accidentally dropped at a height of 1.22 meters, which is enough to withstand heat, dust, and knock falls in the welding site. While ensuring safe operations, it also protects stored data from damage and loss, so that operators can focus on the completion of welding work without worrying about equipment failure.

24/7 running support

The ONERugged rugged mobile PC has a built-in high-capacity removable battery, optional docking charger, and other accessories for easy charging, and can support all-day operation even in the outdoor working environment where it is inconvenient to charge, so the welding process is not interrupted.

In short, the ONERugged rugged mobile PCs show excellent performances in waterproof and dust-proof, shock-resistant, and stable, which can withstand the drop and continuous vibration in the welding site, so that the operators can focus on the completion of the welding tasks. With easy-to-use operating systems and clear display screens, they are convenient for operators to efficiently monitor welding results in real time, find, and track problems, thus greatly improving welding efficiency and empowering the automation of the whole welding process.
