Improve Productivity with Poka Yoke
Written by: Ying Zhang
RNA Carpet Gap Hider Poka Yoke Station – RNA 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 was dedicated to apply the correct label to correct product (two types). The task required a high concentration from the worker, and was 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 consisted 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.
RNA design and build customised workstations to suit the individual needs of our customers.
