Companies grow and often need to improve the efficiency of established manufacturing processes in order to achieve product delivery schedules. Perhaps the company needs faster machines that reduce cycle time and requires less operators. A better data collection system with additional process controls in place that track and control movement of product through the factory. Perhaps the company needs to tie multiple machines together through a single HMI interface and master controller that coordinates all the individual manufacturing equipment. Whatever the Manufacturing Automation need, many factors affect the selection and implementation of specific equipment into a facility. The ADB Automation Group assists clients with Manufacturing Automation by developing and proposing End-to-End manufacturing solutions that meets our client’s immediate need but that are also scalable to meet future needs.
Throughout the factory, the ADB Automation Group is able to define, set up and validate a web based product tracking system, quality system and documentation management system. The tracking system we use is implemented in a SQL based database structure for process control. MS SQL is a common industry standard that most database systems such as Access and Oracle support. The quality system is web based. It allows the user to directly query product metrics to monitor and track product performance and trends. The ADB Automation Group’s document management system (DMS) implements a revision control system to maintain a working information repository. The list below details only a few of the capabilities the ADB Automation group supports throughout the factory.
In the front end, the ADB Automation Group builds custom machines and custom integrate manufacturing equipment together to perform specific requirements driven functions or tasks. We then tie the equipment together through a master controller (PC/PAC/PLC) based system that connects to a HMI and periodically reports into the product tracking system and the quality management system. This format lets out clients run potentially an entire factory one HMI interface location.
In the backend, we fully support the packaging process and provide systems based packaging solutions. We custom integrate equipment used to erect small packages and develop PC HMI, PAC based print subsystems that integrate a packaging printer and Seal Applicator onto the system. Our backend systems continue to track product movement throughout the factory.
Andre and his team were professional, focused and sensitive to the timing issues associated with my project. Most importantly, after the project completed Andre and his team did not disappear. As I needed answers and follow up information, his team followed up in a timely and accurate manner. I look forward to using the services again and would recommend them highly.
