Why would you need Industrial Automation Products?

Automation is the technology by which a process or procedure is performed with minimal human assistance and is usually implemented in manufacturing proccesses to increase speed, accuracy and profitability.

It never fails to amaze us the many innovative uses people find for our Industrial Automation Products.

Our Industrial Automation Products are serving customers in a host of environments and applications including automotive plants, food manufacture, trailer assembly, engine testing, and munitions production. The common theme is addressing the challenge of improving the reliability and efficiency of manufacturing processes.

How to identify and implement the right Industrial Automation Product for your application?

If you are looking to implement automation for the first time there is a process to identifying and implementing the right automation products for your manufacturing process.

Implementing an industrial automation product without fully understanding and documenting the manual process is almost always counter-productive as automating an inefficient process only serves to amplify the inefficiencies in that process. This often leads to the automated process magnifying reliability failings and increasing running costs. Automated processes can fail for a host of reasons ranging from the reliability of components to the ….. but the most common reason for automated manufacturing processes failing is due to a lack of understanding of the manual process from the outset.

At Sandfield Engineering we work with our customers to ensure that the manual process is as efficient as possible before identifying opportunities to automate that process. This early investment in understanding and optimising the manual process dramatically reduces the time to implementation and improves the success rate of automated manufacturing initiatives.

Sandfield Engineering provide automation products from stock if you are already managing an automated process and looking to replace specific automated products.

An evolutionary approach to implementing industrial automation products to your manufacturing process.

The manufacturing automation products provided by Sandfield Engineering have been developed and sourced so that you can realise automation in your processes in a modular fashion. If, for example, you are looking to increase the efficiency and reliability of moving your products through your manufacturing process you might look to implement our Linear Rail Products into your manual process. Similarly, if you are looking to deliver components like screws or nails more quickly and accurately you might look to introduce our Vibratory Bowl Feeders. Our experience of implementing automation into our customers’ production lines is that most often an evolutionary approach to automation has a far greater success rate than a revolutionary approach.
