Process efficiency: The need of the hour
Constant innovation in process automation is a compulsion for EMS companies of any scale. The constant need to provide vertically integrated end-to-end solutions to customers has upped the ante for manufacturers in terms of quality and faster throughput. This has resulted in improved productivity, operational safety, enhanced consistency, better quality and waste reduction.
Large EMS providers have options for custom automation of products and processes for which there are no dedicated machines in place. Automation through robotics ensures consistency in processes like polishing, painting and grinding. A mix of automation techniques can also be used. Flexible automation enables the deployment of assembly modules that can be easily configured using multiple robots and processes. This is essential to assemble, test, inspect, customise and package products in both high-mix, low-volume and high-volume, low-mix production, and entails complete automation across the production line.
