Andon pull boxes are commonly used in automotive plants, but by no means are they restricted to the automotive industry. They are used on an assembly line. Simply put, the operator uses them to activate a signal when an alert condition occurs. It may be that the operator intends to stop the assembly line when this alert condition is met. Other plant floor personnel, such as the plant manager, production manager, line manager, etc. need indication that the condition has been triggered. In most cases, visual indication from the bulb or LED mounted on the box is not sufficient. More often The Andon Pull Box works to signal an audio device and a large marquee board at the same time. The audio device can be a horn or a siren, for example, which would immediately tell the appropriate plant floor personnel that an alarm condition exists. That person would then check the marquee board overhead to determine which station is down.
