Large Format Printing

Printers production

Manufacturing large-format printers can present a range of challenges and potential problems at various stages of the process, from design and component sourcing to assembly and quality control. PROMAI's WizSuite addresses these challenges by highlighting potential problems through different design and engineering stages before continuing to production.

Design Complexity

Large format printers often have complex designs, including precise motion control systems, multiple print heads, and intricate paper handling mechanisms. Designing and manufacturing these systems to work reliably can be a significant challenge. WizGen automatically checks and highlights any potential issues in the design process while generating assembly and disassembly manufacturing processes.

Component/Detail Sourcing

Sourcing high-quality components such as print heads, motors, and sensors can be challenging, and variability in component quality can lead to variations in printer performance and reliability. Integrating WizGen at the early stages of design allows for selecting substitutional parts providers and testing different parts for optimal design during initial dry runs.

Scalability and Production Volume

Manufacturing industrial robots at scale can present challenges in terms of production volume, capacity, and supply chain management.

Maintaining consistency in quality and performance while meeting increasing demands requires efficient production processes and resource management.

PROMAI’s WizSuite production planner provides infinite scalability of production lines and distributed production the interactive language converter support multilingual production data.

Manufacturing Tolerance

Maintaining tight manufacturing tolerances is crucial to ensure consistent print quality. Deviations in parts or assembly can lead to alignment problems and defects in printed output. WizShield's intelligent agent sets a new standard for ensuring all tolerances are met, using WizShield's advanced patent-pending machine vision technology.

Assembly Complexity

The assembly of large format printers can be intricate and time-consuming, with many components needing precise alignment and calibration. This can result in longer manufacturing times and increased labor costs.

WizShield's visual procedural atomic  instructions ensure that expected results are met on each step of construction for error- free production.

Quality Control

Ensuring the quality and consistency of large-format printers is essential. Quality control processes must be rigorous to detect and address issues such as print head misalignment, ink flow problems, or electronic failures. Integrating WizShield into the test beds in the production line ensures high-quality assurance, as WizShield detects in real-time any discrepancies during production.

Supply Chain Disruptions

Global events, such as supply chain disruptions or shortages of key components, can impact the manufacturing process, leading to delays and increased production costs. WizGen may update in real-time any change generated by disruptions in the supply chain, allowing for substitutional parts to be selected, tested, and integrated in production using WizGen's automatic proactive AI instruction generator.

Maintenance & Fault-Isolation

Maintenance and fault isolation are critical aspects of aviation to ensure the safe and reliable operation of aircraft. Maintenance involves the routine inspection, servicing, repair, and replacement of components to keep the aircraft in airworthy condition. Fault isolation, on the other hand, is the process of identifying and troubleshooting issues or faults in the aircraft's systems or components. Here's an overview of maintenance and fault isolation in aviation:

Warranty and Support Considerations

Manufacturers must plan for warranty support and maintenance services, which can add complexity to the manufacturing process. WizSuite sets a new standard in generating, updating, and reusing organizational data, standardizing all manufacturing maintenance and fault isolation processes. Addressing these challenges in large-format printer manufacturing requires careful planning, quality assurance processes, and a commitment to continuous improvement. Manufacturers may also invest in research and development to stay competitive and address emerging market demands and technological advancements. PROMAI's WizSuite addresses all of the challenges arising during the design and manufacturing of large format printers

Troubleshooting and Repair

Once the fault is isolated, technicians use their expertise and technical manuals to diagnose the specific problem and develop a repair plan. This may involve replacing faulty components, adjusting settings, repairing wiring or connections, or recalibrating systems.
Technicians follow manufacturer guidelines and industry best practices to ensure accurate and effective repairs. WizShield using the data created by WizGen assists in timely troubleshooting of any problem raises.

Inspection and Testing

At various stages of production, rigorous testing and quality assurance measures are implemented. This includes non-destructive testing (e.g., X-ray inspection, ultrasonic testing) to ensure structural integrity, functional testing of systems and equipment, and overall performance testing. Any issues or defects identified during testing are addressed and rectified.

Documentation and Compliance

Throughout the maintenance and fault isolation process, detailed records are maintained to document the actions taken, parts replaced, and inspections performed. These records are crucial for regulatory compliance, tracking maintenance history, and providing a clear audit trail of maintenance activities. WizGen helps generate a digital database for manufacturing maintenance and fault isolation which is easily updatable reusable and maintainable.
