The Five Levels in the Production of Automated Factory
In recent years, China's labor advantage in manufacturing industry is gradually disappearing. The cheap labor force, once the main driver of China's manufacturing sector, turns to be inadequate. What’s more, companies are facing a worsening labor shortage.
Therefore, for enterprises that want to make large-scale production, and want to thrive around the world, it is wise to spare time to improve productivity. Thus, company are advised to attach importance on technology promotion, introduction of automation and intelligent technology.
Automation level 1: use a quick clip positioning fixture.
The use of quick clamping fixture is the first step towards automation. The universal standard of fixture is applied in different machine tools and processes. This change enables that workpiece and the electrode achieve transforming without artificial operation. The process can be completed within a few seconds. repeated positioning precision can reach within 2 microns.
• reduce preparation time of workpiece .
• increase production time.
• allow offline testing between production processes.
Automation level 2: machine tool integrated with automatic switching device.
On the basis of using the fast clip positioning fixture, the machine tool is equipped with the device of automatic replacement electrode and workpiece, so as to realize the automatic process for a long time. But the automation of this automatic switching device is very limited.
• economic integration design.
• less investment
Automation level 3: Configure artifacts/electrode composite system.
Through the configuration artifacts/electrode composite system, the machine can support more numbers of artifacts/electrode changes. It can handle various tray systems, central preset data and numerical control program to ensure the transparency of the machining process.
• the improvement of continuous automation capability.
• the high trenchancy of the processing.
Automation level 4: manufacturing unit.
With a processing equipment, the machine can serve many sets of machine tools and equipment. machine and ancillary equipment can help to realize unattended processing. machining process is characterized with high transparency. real-time access to artifacts and process data, online measurement was achieved by three coordinate measuring instrument, to ensure high quality production.
• realize unattended processing.
Automation level 5: flexible manufacturing system
a single processing equipment services to many sets of machine tools and equipment. all machine tools and related data are associated to realize the unification management of the data flow and logistics. The number of equipment can be adjusted according to the demand, suitable for mass production.
•adjustable equipment quantity according to demand
As for investment of automation, customers often worry about compatibility between
different devices. The most prominent advantage of GF processing program is that it can provide customers with a real one-stop solution. The demands of customers can be met range from the provision of processing equipment and the development of automation solutions, to the application of automation software.
