What Is Andon?

When I first heard the term 'andon' I thought it was a brand of something. Turns out, it is simply a term used for something visual that indicates machine, manufacturing or process status. Andon products are common with a buzzer to alert to a change in status. 

Where did the term 'andon' originate? It is derived from a Japanese term for a type of paper lantern. 

When I read the description, I instantly think 'light towers'. Marshall Wolf Automation has a number of andon options for your machines and production lines!

A few of our andon products that you might be interested in include:

Patlite VSST - manually controlled LED light tower

Werma WIN -  low cost wireless monitoring system

Our in-house tech support is readily available to help you find the best andon system for your application!
