USE CASES

FACTORY PRODUCT TRACEABILITY

Product traceability is a key challenge in the manufacturing cycle. Imagine that in a day, you have hundred thousand of produced products and all of them will be delivered to the international market. How would you manage the product call back should some of the product you produced required a call back due to product design issue, polluted raw material used for the production and many more?

TEM Smart Solutions, which is the Industry 4.0 frontier of TEM Engineering group was engage by a multinational toy manufacturer to design and develop a production tracking and call back solution for the new products that they manufactured. We were given the task by the customer to propose a solution which is cost effective and justifiable for the investment made for this implementation. We have proposed a solution that is able to capture few key parameters which will be associated with the product they produce. The captured information will be kept into a repository for future reference.

INDUSTRIAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT

TEM Smart Solutions, which is the Industry 4.0 frontier of TEM Engineering group was given a task by a local industrial customer to provide an analysis study for the factory energy management specifically in maximum demand. The customer has a major maximum demand issue which make up of about 30% of their monthly electricity bill.

We went into the customer factory to understand their requirements and production process flows before we propose our energy management solution. The solution consists of hardware power meters, inverters, networking devices, and the award-winning energy management software solution.  We analyst the data collected from the energy management software and subsequently work out some suggestion to the customer for them to consider lowering down the maximum demand usage. At the end of the project implementation, we manage to help the customer to reduce the maximum demand usage at the customer acceptable level without effecting the production operation.

FACTORY MACHINERY PRE-EMPTIVE MAINTENANCE

TEM Smart Solutions, which is the Industry 4.0 frontier of TEM Engineering group was engage by a multinational company in Malaysia to assist the maintenance team to develop a pre-emptive maintenance solution for some of their very old casting machines in the factory. Some of these casting machines are more than 30 years old and the customer hardly find any local part suppliers for their machine. Any part replacement due to the casting machine breakdown will cause them at least a week to get the new part shipped from the oversea. Moreover, it will not make sense for them to get all the spare parts ready for the breakdown replacement.

We have conducted some studies with the casting machines, and we have agreed to develop a pre-emptive maintenance solution for the casting machines with some sensor devices installed into the machine. The new sensors will produce additional data such as temperature data, vibration data, frequency data etc to help us to develop a brand new pre-emptive maintenance solution with the help of some data analytics software.

The new developed pre-emptive maintenance solution helps the customer to have a more manageable of their machine maintenance windows to better plan for their production downtime.

PRODUCTION MONITORING

Production monitoring is the fundamental of the Industry 4.0 implementation. There are many things that the plant manager can retrieve from the production floor if the production system is connected. Things like machine availability, resource or material shortage, production operating efficiency or the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) can be monitored via a dashboard inside a production monitoring and control room. The plant manager can make a faster and effective decision if he or she has all this information presented to him on a production floor monitoring dashboard.

TEM Smart Solutions, which is the Industry 4.0 frontier of TEM Engineering group was engage by a multinational company that is specialized in producing precision engineered component. We have been asked by our customer to develop a production monitoring solution for their stamping machines. The scope of the project inclusive of setting up of the wireless network infrastructure within the plant building. The customer is satisfied with the system and look forward to expanding it to other blocks.

PRODUCTION QUALITY INSPECTION                                    

Production quality inspection is a major challenge for manufacturer. Imagine that in every single day, you have more than million units of finished product that need to get the quality control greenlight before they can be shipped to the customer. Someone may suggest we use the sampling method in the quality inspection process cycle, but it is not the solution for our customer who is a global leader in design and manufacture advanced sensor solutions.

TEM Smart Solutions, which is the Industry 4.0 frontier of TEM Engineering group was engage by the customer to designed and develop an automated quality inspection system for their micro-optic products. Each micro-optic unit will be examined by a vision inspection software for it quality control process. We proposed a robotic arm system to ensure every angle of the micro-optic unit is inspected by the vision software.

Glove Industry
James Lee • CEO of T.E.M. Combustion Sdn. Bhd.
We take pride in our top-notch after-sales support, troubleshooting skills, and high efficiency in solving client’s problems or defects; backed by our unparalleled technical knowledge of our group of technicians and engineers.
CHALLENGE

Leading glove companies in Malaysia are constantly seeking for the most
cost-effective production processes while maintaining their status as the
highest quality producers on a global scale.

OUTCOME

Continuous research by T.E.M. in fine-tuning the latest manufacturing processes; through optimisation of combustion components. T.E.M. has helped reduced the size of the burners and save energy without interrupting the consistency in energy exchange involved in the leaching and beading processes.

Our second breakthrough achievement in the glove industry was the use of servo motor with double drive (servo motor drive through automation, HMI + PLC), which could last twice or thrice longer than the previous technology used for the conveyor lines. This has consequently saved maintenance costs.

The innovative engineering and machine technology matrix has helped our clients increase production efficiency.

Water Supply Industry
Tey Teng Seng • CEO of T.E.M. Technology Sdn. Bhd.
We have built solid relationships with our clients and gained a trusted reputation within the industry; accessing client’s projects with earned trust and credibility.
CHALLENGE

The contractors, subcontractors, and the end users we deal with in this industry constantly face technical optimisation, maintenance and budget constraints.

OUTCOME

Consequently, we were brought in for technical, maintenance and troubleshooting discussion. We have skilled and experienced engineers to provide engineering components and solutions according to client’s specifications and compliance.

As part of a value-added service, we keep spare parts for our clients and do swift yet proper maintenance and equipment. As a result, we are known for our top-notch after-sales service and support.
