Virtual factory and showroom tours provide access to best practices

Mitsubishi Electric is opening up access to its factory automation sites and showrooms through virtual tours with the aim of overcoming the restrictions on in-person visits caused by the pandemic.

Industry 4.0 and digital manufacturing are now popular terms being discussed in the manufacturing industry, but when companies start their journey in digital manufacturing, many of them look for best practices and how they could reference such practices in their factories.

Mitsubishi Electric has a 100-year history of supporting manufacturers, plus a prolific track record for achieving factory automation at its own and other manufacturers´ facilities. The approach embodies the Japanese philosophy of Kaizen that is now recognised worldwide. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Mitsubishi Electric´s factories in Nagoya and Fukuyama, Japan, attracted thousands of visitors from around the world interested to learn how the factory automation manufacturer leverages digital manufacturing and its e-F@ctory approach to make their own products.

Although it may still be difficult to travel across borders easily, Mitsubishi Electric’s Virtual Factory Tour, now available through online videos, overcomes these restrictions allowing visitors to walk through the various technologies and solutions behind the manufacture of its FA products. What´s more, the online factory tour can be accessed from a PC or smartphone at any time, from anywhere.

Mitsubishi Electric has also renewed its Online Mechatronics Solution Centre, where visitors can learn about Mitsubishi Electric´s range of processing machines, computerised numerical controllers (CNCs) and other machine tools in a virtual showroom.  

Virtual Factory Tours available online cover PLC production and production of power monitoring/distribution products.

The tour of Fukuyama Works will walk you through its office building, the circuit breaker line and the printed circuit board line. The tour highlights how processes were improved using artificial intelligence (AI) and other cutting-edge technologies in digital manufacturing.

The tours are open to everyone visiting its FA website. Click here to visit Mitsubishi Electric’s Virtual Factory Tour.
