Computerized Panel Saw is a machine that our team have design and fabricate for the woodworking industry. Its purpose is to trim wooden planks into smaller pieces based on the input specifications by the machine operator. This machine is equipped with Internet of Things (IoT) elements which enables our team to monitor the status of the machine from time to time and engage with the user on the estimated service date based on its current health.
The machine is a combination of few processes if it were given a conventional method of acquiring this process. This machine has reduced from 3 manual operated machine into a single automated machine which can process up to 4800 wooden planks per day compared to only 1000 wooden planks made per day using manual based machine. This process has also reduced from 3 machine operators into 1 which positively impacted the overhead cost of the company.
