|Automation has become an integral part of manufacturing industry. Increasing number of manufacturing processes is becoming automated. All these automation is achieved by machine automation. Machine automation refers to the use of control systems and information technology that reduces the need of human work and increases the rate of production and with reduced or almost no errors in the processes. Automation is an advanced step of mechanization.
Simple machines require human operators to operate and control the machine processes whereas machine automation makes it possible to have least human interference in operating and controlling the processes. Machine automation reduces the need of human sensory and mental abilities.
Many industries achieve machine automation with the help of various automated tools such as PLC, CNC, AC and DC drives. Industries can get special purpose machine, cut to length lines, sheet metal cutting and new CNC integration with CNCs. An example of machine automation is the PAC solution. These machines offer solution for both centralized and decentralized motion control architectures. These automated controls offer solution with the objective of demanding requirements of various industrial application such as electronic manufacturing, solar cell manufacturing, packaging, optical inspection systems and more. To improve the production rate and optimize the usage of all the facilities, these machines provide integrated operations and runtime and downtime information into the system.
Many manufacturers are designing and manufacturing wide range of automated machines to suffice the demands of various industries. You can easily find machines according to the requirements of your manufacturing process.
