Non-standard automation equipment, also called "customized equipment", is designed and manufactured every time, according to different customer preferences, product technology, quality requirements, site conditions, etc. tailor-made. In other words, non-standard means that there is no standard. When it comes to “standards” or norms, it is a bit self-contradictory.
Knowing the precautions for purchasing non-standard automation equipment can save a lot of trouble and save the factory a huge follow-up expenditure. Nevertheless, the production of non-standard automation equipment is a technical business, and it cannot be arbitrarily used, nor is it arbitrary. There are many restrictions on the specific development and implementation.
What is non-standard automation equipment?
"Non-standard automation equipment" refers to non-standard equipment, not equipment manufactured in accordance with the unified industry standards and specifications promulgated by the country, but equipment designed and manufactured by itself according to the needs of its own use, which also requires anti-corrosion. Today we look at non-standard automation equipment to understand what non-standard automation equipment is.
What kind of process is necessary to put in automation equipment?
The working environment in the workshop is not friendly, such as spraying and welding operations;
Make the product quality poor by manual operation;
The product is larger or heavier, and manual operation is not flexible;
If you want to fully realize manual feeding, the part separability is very important and the separability of the parts needs to be evaluated. Especially for some small parts like screws, nails;
Component stability. If the quality of the components flowing from the upstream is not stable, the quality of the products processed by the equipment may not be as good as the manual ones, which may cause repeated shutdowns of the equipment;
The packaging complexity of the components. If you want to realize automatic feeding, you need to change the original packaging method, let the feeding machine load people, and it is difficult to realize the complicated assembly operation.
Design specification for non-standard automation equipment
How can automation design meet the requirements of lean mode? "Three No Policy"
1. Do not use large multitasking equipment but use small equipment for a single task
The higher the complexity of the equipment, the higher the cost, the worse the accuracy, and the lower the flexibility to respond to changes in demand.
2. Don't blindly pursue high-speed equipment
The efficiency of the equipment should meet the demand and ensure the quality of the product as the principle, too much.
3. No batch processing equipment
Although batch processing equipment has certain advantages in efficiency, it will hinder the flow, prolong the production cycle, and even cause delays.
