Loading and Unloading Systems
Automated loaders and unloaders are important parts of the manufacturing equation, and automating these processes can lead to significant savings.
Even with small volume production, automating manual loading and unloading processes offer a very quick ROI in savings from labor costs and productivity. At Automation GT , we are specialists in the design and manufacture of custom loading systems with or without corresponding unloading systems to improve the efficiency of your process. Automating these steps in your production process is a great choice for those looking to maximize automation opportunities.
We know that each machine is different, and so for our customers interested in automating loading and unloading steps, we assess initial TAKT (cycle) times along with space and handling requirements before we determine optimal handling solutions. Throughout this assessment, our priority will be in determining which machines and components will give you the greatest productivity.
Automation GT can provide systems to handle an extremely wide range of parts and products. We have designed loading and unloading systems that feed components from pallets, conveyors, tubes, bins, and bowl feeders. As the components are loaded or unloaded, we can include elements in your machine to perform secondary operations including vision inspection and mold runner removal.
Whether stand-alone or part of a larger production line, our control solutions can be scaled into SCADA factory-level control systems at any level of integration. We manufacture our systems are manufactured with item-compatible aluminum for less rigid structures and welded steel frames for more rigid structures.
Component loading and unloading systems provide:
- Automation in the loading and unloading steps of your process
- Inspection capabilities in conjunction with loading and unloading, when needed
- Options in stand-alone systems or bolt-on systems to existing production
- Integration with existing factory-level SCADA systems
