Vast experience of working with auto and auto ancillary units, enable our team to perfectly visualize the bottlenecks. Bottlenecks may be in productivity, quality, part consistency and skill dependency. Every machine is designed with specific approach to resolve either one or many of these issues. The solution also takes into consideration the floor space available, since the Special Purpose Machines are normally deployed in existing production facilities.
Simplistic approach helps reduce cost, however, machines with up to 8 servo motion axes and as many as 4 welding guns operating simultaneously have also been deployed for more complex and demanding applications. Reduced power consumption is priority and fixture mounted guns with transformers or robot integrated transguns are preferred over long secondary bus bars wherever possible.
Our experience of working with various sheet metal component manufacturing companies, ranging from small workshops to large automotive, industrial, aerospace and machine tool manufacturing companies, has enabled us to address typical manufacturing challenges faced by these industries.
The challenge varies from situation to situation. At one place it may be inconsistency inherent to the input parts, but a task to maintain consistency in output part, by way of incorporating detection and correction mechanism built into the machine. Some other customer might be facing an issue of human skill dependency, and the machine needs to address the issue of de-skilling. Some more other customers may be facing challenge to achieve targeted output production within the available time and machine is then designed to provide expected productivity. Shop floor space coverage, low power and utility consumption, use of industry standard parts, ease of availability of bought-out spares are some of the other considerations that makes the project value rewarding for the customer in long run.
Machines are conceived to be adaptable to future changes in product design at the concept stage itself, wherever possible. Cost benefit analysis is done based on flexibility and investment required. This ensures that customer's investment, its costs and returns are predictable.
User friendly man-machine interface, robust construction, ease of maintenance are fundamental design rules.
