- JaNets Deep Dive: Digital Sewing Systems Communication
More Data More Power
JaNets is constantly collecting and compiling the data from a sewing line. This data comes in many different forms: from simple information on when a machine has been turned on to more detailed statistics on machine operations. We can split the data collected into three distinct groups based on the level of detail contained within it.
As these models have been completely digitalized, all aspects of the operation can be captured and communicated to JaNets. You will be able to gather information on: sewing speed, stitch length, thread tension and log error codes. This level of data collection is not possible with any other shop floor control system and gives you the information needed to make better calls.
Give and Take
As well as this data collection, the use of Juki’s digital sewing systems with JaNets allows for two way communication, meaning data can be uploaded as well as downloaded. As Juki’s new machine line up has been fully digitalized, sewing parameters can be digitally communicated. Similarly to the function mentioned in the first basic level of the data collection process, pre-defined parameters can be uploaded when an operator scans the RFID tag at the beginning of a bundle. This function means a machine is calibrated for a specific operation without any physical input on the machine itself. The operator simply scans the RFID tag and JaNets can pull and download the correct sewing parameters for the specific bundle in a matter of seconds. These parameters can be set in prototyping rooms and uploaded to a server ensuring that every machine is set up exactly as intended while also saving time and money on manual machine calibrations.
The ease of use means that a single operator can quickly switch over between materials and products with no physical machine adjustments. If you read our previous deep dive, you will know that JaNets can suggest these changeovers as a means of improving overall efficiency.
