Fanuc America says its Robot LINKi Zero Down Time (ZDT) service is now available to all automotive and non-automotive manufacturers who purchase Fanuc robots.
Launched in 2015 in collaboration with Cisco, ZDT is a predictive analytic service that identifies potential failures so customers can schedule maintenance and repairs, avoiding unexpected breakdowns during production. ZDT received a General Motors Innovation Award in 2016.
Today, over 16,000 robots in the automotive industry are operating with ZDT.
Since its introduction, Fanuc estimates that ZDT has saved customers over 1,300 hours of unexpected production interruptions, which equates to more than $4 million. [Read more…] about Fanuc launches new version of Zero Down Time service
