Increase Plant Productivity With Automation
Manufacturing automation increases your plant productivity in several ways.
Automation allows for faster machine assembly by replacing labor-intensive, manual processes. The first step is to optimize workflow and design the automation for maximum efficiency.
Improving workflow first typically lowers operating expenses and the cost of plant automation investments.
Improved manufacturing quality is also gained from precision machine calibration. Automation reduces errors, improves net throughput, provides scrap reduction and reduces product rework. Manufacturers can see increased profit margins from improvements in these key areas.
More up-time allows more throughput of pieces per hour while increased efficiency can increase production and reduce the expense of excessive scrap.
- Meet JIT forecasts – Reduced cycle time optimizes inventory turns
- Reduce errors that cause rework
- Reduce waste of raw materials
- Improved machine utilization improves your margins
