It's no secret that the manufacturing industry is rapidly changing. Automation is becoming a more and more common sight in factories all over the world, and for good reason. Automated industrial finishing systems offer benefits that can help manufacturers improve their productivity and efficiency.
So, what can you expect with the installation and implementation in your facility?
Benefits of Automated Finishing Systems
For manufacturers looking to scale and grow their business, automation is not only beneficial, but necessary. That said, there is an initial investment required to get started.
In addition to the finishing equipment, manufacturers will need to invest in the automation which includes not only sensors and data collection devices, but control equipment as well as the automation tools like robotics.
1. Increased Production, Quality, and Consistency for Finishing
One of the key benefits of an automated industrial finishing system is the ability to automate repetitive tasks. Automating these tasks can free up your employees to focus on more value-added activities, which can ultimately lead to increased productivity. In addition, automation can remove human error, helping to improve product quality and consistency.
2. Additional Value for Customers
Another benefit of an automated industrial finishing system is that it can help you be more competitive. Automating your finishing processes can help you to save time and money, providing value to customers. You can begin to collect data on product, identifying additional efficiencies and providing customers with more information on project status. In this competitive market, you need to seize every advantage to find an edge.
3. Improved Workplace Safety
Another benefit of an automated industrial finishing system is the improved safety it can provide. Automating dangerous tasks can help protect your employees from injury, including risk from harmful overspray or heat from the curing ovens. Manufacturing automation can also help to improve the overall safety of your facility by reducing the need for manual handling of hazardous materials, including (potentially) paints and powder.
4. Lower Costs and a Quick Return
Automated industrial finishing systems can also help to lower your costs. With the right automation in place, you will see a rapid ROI. With automation, you save money on labor and materials, as the system eliminates human mistakes or downtime for shift changes. In addition, automation improves production efficiency, as you produce more with fewer quality defects. The return on investment in equipment and development costs is quickly offset by lower operating expenses, reduced lead times, and greater output when automated finishing systems are tailored to your specific company.
