EBARA CORPORATION (“EBARA”) has started the operation of ACCELIOT Inc.’s “STAR” System with their RFID technology. It is capable of wide-area spatial coverage on the custom pump production line at our Futtsu plant. Based on their extensive experience and knowledge, IBM Japan provided support to install the STAR System from consulting and actual operation of the system.

1. Background 

Over the course of the past 108 years since its foundation, EBARA has contributed to social problems along with our strengths in technical capabilities and credibility as well as our founding spirit of “Passion and Dedication”. In order to refine management and business infrastructure, in the “E-Vision2030”, which is our long-term vision, EBARA has set resource strategies related to manufacturing, technology, and information as one of our Material Issues (Materiality). EBARA will promote transformations in production processes utilizing IoT to pursue for greater product quality and higher efficiency in business operation.

2. Outline 

The STAR System covers an area of approximately 24,000 square meters. The system uses electromagnetic waves received with a total of 262 antennae installed on pillars inside the facility, and detects RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags, which are electrically excited by the waves, to track the location. The location data from tags labelled on components enables inventory and location management. With the STAR System, the following process is expected to improve for the increased productivity.
