Industrial Automation Concept
Since ancient times, humans have had the need to manufacture utensils and tools in order to improve the production of products, along with the distribution and sale of manufactured products. Industrial automation has been essential to manufacture products in large quantities and in a very short time. All this with the support of technology, as does the team, which is specialized in 3 sectors: retail, industry, and health. This technology relies on radio frequency to identify and store products through the use of labels.
Due to programming, industrial automation results in the combination and implementation of different technologies to autonomously control the stages or processes of any machine and equipment. The purpose is to perform automatic functions or tasks on a repetitive basis, with minimal human involvement. But that if, with a high quality required that produce the highest productivity with the lowest possible cost and in the shortest time.
What is industrial automation for?
Industrial automation is quite functional and brings with it many benefits:
1 – It allows to increase the productions of several products and also that the manufacturing is of higher quality.
2 – The process is automated and this facilitates that the margin of error is really low. Therefore, the manufacture of the products will be done constantly and with minimal interruptions.
3 – Thanks to automation, companies can reduce manufacturing times, thus saving on costs and labor.
4 – Automation has caused fear in people due to the loss of human jobs. But in many occupations, its functionality must be emphasized. And the fact is that human intervention in polluting or harmful environments has been reduced. Just as in the transfer of heavy loads, the machinery has intervened because the operator cannot do it.
5 – The information is more accurate. The collection of this is faster and this allows those responsible to make better decisions and solve problems in a more agile way.
6 – Improvement of working conditions. The workforce carries out their functions by dedicating more time to tasks with high added value.
How many types of industrial process automation are there?
It is a fairly broad and constantly developing field of study. The automation that are carried out by companies depends to a greater extent on the objectives set or industries to which they are dedicated.
1 – Fixed automation:
The robots are designed to carry out a specific function, in a repetitive way and for a high production volume. It is characterized by being fast, precise, and very safe. it is ideal for processes with very low variability.
2 – Flexible automation:
Unlike fixed, it is designed to accommodate various product configurations. It is configured from computers and is very practical for companies that manufacture different products. It is characterized by operating in a slower way and being less economical. Flexible automation is divided into programmable or fixed:
Programmable: low production volume and various types of objects. They are configured according to the needs of the programmer.
Flexible: medium production volume and allows adjustments to be made in the production line.
In which areas are industrial automation incorporated?
The clear objective is to increase production by improving product quality and reducing costs. Industrial robotics is mainly integrated into pharmaceutical, metallurgical, food, automotive, etc. companies. In addition to automatic machines capable of moving products or merchandise, there are others that differentiate between products, weight, volume, or other characteristics.
