Process ef­fi­ciency: The need of the hour

Electronics Bazaar - - Industry Report -

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.
