Improve Productivity with Poka Yoke Inspection

Written by:

RNA Carpet Gap Hider Poka Yoke Station – RNA have designed and built a bespoke workstation, applying Poka-Yoke (also called mistake proofing) requirements to prevent the human errors that result in product defects.

The workstation is dedicated to apply the correct label to correct product (two types). The task requires a high concentration from the worker, and is the cause of many errors, since two types of products are too similar to each other, both in size and in colour.

The Poka Yoke designed in the workstation consists of a Poka Yoke clamp and a Poka Yoke vision sensor. If the product does not match the build requirements the clamps will remain locked and the HMI will request a supervisor to attend.

The Poka Yoke designed workstation helps workers to be ‘right first time’, enhancing the quality and overall output of the process.
