The leading electronic equipment manufacturer in China, LSIS, has boosted the productivity of one of its factories in the country's North Chungcheong Province by installing a fully-automated smart manufacturing system, the Korea Times reports.
 
LSIS first started creating smart factories around five years ago, syncing ICT with automation methods to improve the efficiency of both its small batch production and larger mass production.
 
As a result of these efforts, its low voltage circuit and switch factory in Chungju has seen productivity improve by 60% and the system standby time has been reduced by half.
In particular, production lines that build 38 low voltage products have been able to expand their production by almost three times, with daily volumes increasing from 7,500 to 20,000. At the same time, the product defect rate fell to just eight products per million, and energy consumption dropped by more than 60% - adding up to serious financial savings for the company.
 
Commenting on the transition to smart factories, a spokesperson from LSIS stated: "As our manufacturing lines became smarter, we have seen not only their productivity and energy efficiency greatly enhanced but also our customer satisfaction, and the working environment improved."
 
The company's plans also run in line with the Korean government's wider initiative to build more smart manufacturing facilities throughout the country, entitled 'Manufacturing Innovation 3.0'. This came about as experts realised the power of smart factories to boost productivity and the competitiveness of the country's products by using automation and real-time data monitoring.
 
As well as building its own smart factories, LSIS has been promoting governmental policy by opening its automated facilities to SMEs who are looking to build their own, and offering them information and support.
