Automation is used to solve complex and slow manufacturing processes. Each system is custom-designed to meet the needs of users. Although each system is highly specific, there are standard designs for rotary assembly machines. Below, we want to highlight principles and recommendations that are often applied to facilitate automated assembly systems.
They Use Modular Designs– as more assembly steps are added to a system, it results in increased downtime. By designing and using modular systems, more than ten parts can be assembled in a single system. To go along with modular designs, consider designing subassemblies around the base part.
They Need High-Quality Components– adding good quality components at each workstation ensures high performance and consistent output. When poor-quality components are used, it often results in jams in a feeding system (especially in cap closing machines).
They Reduce the total Amount of Assemblies Required– during the design of rotary assembly machines, functions are combined within a single action. Previously the functions were accomplished separately, which increased downtime and upped the risk of damage to parts.
Rotary assembly systems offer many benefits to manufacturing businesses that other manufacturing methods cannot replicate. You should not hesitate to give our team a call for more information on cap closing machines and rotary automation. We can help you solve your manufacturing problems and increase the value of your products.
