Technology continues to advance without an end to stopping in sight. The manufacturing industry benefits greatly from new advancements in automated technologies. Although the assembly line dates to the turn of the 20th century, significant changes have been made in the industry that has greatly streamlined production, reduced waste, and lowered manufacturing costs. Is your business reaping the benefits of modern automation and cap closing machines?
Automated assembly machines
There are three main benefits found when using modern automated technologies, which include:
Consistent Production Rates– inspection technology and robotic assembly maximize production rate without cutting corners or making consistent errors. Cameras and robot arms detect errors and actively and quickly remove any unfit products from the line before being sorted.
High-Output Volumes – automation assembly machines move quicker than the human hand, they do not need breaks, and they do not need to sleep for 6-8 hours every day. It is nearly impossible to recreate the speed and accuracy of automation with human work. Automated assembly machines reduce the number of employees needed on an assembly line while increasing output and profit.
Savings – the initial cost of designing, building, and installing automated assembly machines and cap closing systems is sometimes considered high. What needs to be remembered that the longer the system is used, the bigger your savings become. Labor costs are amongst the highest a business must cover. With an automated assembly machine, you can hire the proper number of employees to do highly specialized jobs.
