Trilogiq USA Identified Automotive Industry as Low Cost Automation Concepts
Livonia, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/23/2013 -- Trilogiq USA looked at what is driving the automotive manufacturing industry to automate its material handling processes. Tim Floyd, National Sales Director for Trilogiq USA commented, “Low cost automation is now a “best practice,” making what was once only an option for large companies with the budget to purchase sophisticated capital equipment, available to smaller manufacturers that face the challenges of high product change-overs and lower production volumes. Failure to adapt and automate in today’s environment will make it perpetually tougher to compete in a modern market.”
Trilogiq USA identified 8 ways modern automation utilizes flexible, low cost concepts:
1. Low Cost Gravity Flow Racks to Move Product to the Operator
2. Pneumatic Powered Elevators to Increase System Design Flexibility
3. Powered Rollers with Gravity Flow Conveyance in Complex Environments
4. Robotic Controlled Tuggers or AGV/AGC’s
5. Robotic Industrial Trucks and Cart Systems for Flexible Routing
6. Supermarket Storage Areas with Fewer Dedicated Material Handlers and Using Automatic Exchange of Empty Containers for Full Ones via “Drive-by Exchange” Methods
7. Inventory is Being Moved Out of Bulk Containers in to Smaller More Manageable Containers That can Move Thru This Flexible System
8. “Smart Racks” are Being Designed to Integrate Seamlessly with the Production Line Controls via Visual Sensors or Full PLC Integration
