With over 45 years of experience in serving manufacturing industries, we have designed a complete line of LED Andon displays including marquees and process control boards. These displays have been designed and tested to withstand the precision and serviceability required within the industrial process.
The term “Andon” refers to a visual system used to notify management, workers and maintenance of either process or quality problems. The Andon system identifies the proper people of the nature and location of problems within a system. Companies around the world have implemented an Andon system
to complement and help drive their manufacturing processes.
FactoryVision Andon displays integrate seamlessly within existing manufacturing intelligence and data coellection systems to meet the high-visbility, clear communication needs of any manufacturing or warehousing operation. With an Onboard Pentium processor option, Andon boards supply high end processing performance with multiple input sources.
From tri-color to full color matrix systems, FactoryVision Andon systems meet the precise communication needs of all warehousing or manufacturing operations. Offering a continuous stream of communication to all parts within the company, these industrial LED signs supply information to employees on how they affect overall performance. Multiple page text and graphics, standard row column layouts and full motion video replay give companies that opportunity to create eye-catching messages.
Return on Investment
By quickly and efficiently providing information when problems come arise, our Andon displays minimizes the time equipment is down and the time employees have to work on it, saving you time and money. Electro-Matic's innovations such as the single-point connections and modular design system reduce life cycle costs by minimizing part count and making units easily serviceable. The successful implementation of an Andon system typically offers a return on investment of one year or less.
The automobile manufacturing industry demands high efficiency and top prescision. General Motors of Lordstown came to us seeking a way to maintain each of those while increasing their productivity and eastablishing a central nervous system for their manufacturing processes. Electro-matic installed a cutting-edge industrial LED display, allowing the facility to maintain up to date, real-time communication between employees and management.
What are they saying?
Electro-Matic's introduction of state of the art automation technologies has allowed the Fabricating plant Manufacturing facility to continuously improve our manufacturing efficiencies and lower production cost.

Factory Vision Andon displays, marquees and process control boards are visual production control devices which can continuously show the changing status of a production line. They integrate seamlessly into a manufacturing system and help to increase production and communication, while reducing costs.
Music Alert System
Music Alert System are used to provide an audible alert of a problem in the manufacturing process. The Andon System can then play a short tune of several notes to alert the Managers or Maintenance staff of what type of tune and where the problem exists. A cross reference of tunes to production areas is made available to the appropriate staff although our experience shows that the tunes associated with a particular area are quickly learned by the Management and Support personnel.
Call pull switches
Cable pull switches are used by Machine or Production Line workers to alert their supervisors of Quality or Manufacturing issues during the Assembly Process. Typically a first pull will sound an alarm, generate a message on the plant display system, and provide local visual indication of a pulled switch. A second pull typically stops the production line until the problem is corrected. Reset switches are also often included.
Industrial call pendants are used for calling for a variety of purposes and multiple combinations can be combined as needed to perform different functions can be built to sit directly on your Profibus, Ethernet, PROFINET, Seriplex, ASI, DeviceNet, or other industrial networking system.With three different types, you can perform a variety functions.
