Meeting Growing Demands
To improve manufacturing throughput without sacrificing quality, Essex Furukawa partnered with Sight Machine to unlock its plant data. By using Sight Machine on Azure as its manufacturing productivity platform, Essex Furukawa is able to track overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) across all plants, quickly resolve production problems, and continuously improve production speed, quality, and availability in order to meet growing demands from the electric vehicle (EV) market.
Essex Furukawa’s growth depended on the ability to increase production without affecting quality. The magnet wire Essex Furukawa makes for EV motors must meet exacting standards enabling it to withstand years of severe stress, including high heat, high electrical current, and fast switching frequencies.
