HGST Philippines Corporation
Creates and applies technology to monitor or control the production and delivery of products and services to the customers. Also, designs, programs, simulates and tests automated machinery and processes in order to complete exact tasks depending on requirements.
- Developed and implemented a system that helped reduce scrapped products where a scrapped part's average cost is 36, 000 USD. This is done by eliminating manual processes that contributes 66% on scrapped products. Developed was an automated process using C# and VB6-based windows application that interface with each other through TCP/IP Socket Communication. The system also used MySQL and IBM DB2 for saving and retrieving data. Stored procedures, triggers, events and data warehousing were implemented to make the automation possible. Also, a C# based application is developed for monitoring of data through charting, uploading of recipes through FTP, changing of parameters and settings to control the automation remotely.
- Developed several projects to eliminate manual process using various devices like laser, servo-driven three-axis linear end-effector motor, camera, Epson SCARA robots, etc. by building C# API around each device's low-level commands or existing library to be used in creating applications to automate the manual processes, wherein in most projects image processing is also involved.
- Continuously supports all implemented projects and functionalities. Release new versions of software with bug fixes and/or improvements.
