Automatic Truck Loading for a Variety of Industries

With fewer docks required because each dock can handle higher volumes, the automatic unloading system processes up to 6,000 parcels per hour which means that the maximum capacity of the sorting machines can be utilized achieving optimal overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

Implementing An IoT Strategy

Too often, businesses start with an "intent to connect" instead of focusing on a business model. Companies that are just looking to create a connected version of a product fail to solve actual problems that are affecting the business.

Kitting Improves Productivity and Reduces Labor Costs

Logistics kitting organizes and even assembles parts used in the manufacturing of a product so they can be delivered to the point of use, saving time on the line. It is often the best example of Lean Manufacturing in practice, eliminating wasted time in production.

Is Your Data Telling the Whole Story?

Even when you can connect directly to whatever it is that you are measuring and design the system yourself, you might encounter issues. Inconsistencies can arise from power failures, wifi outages, faulty or damaged equipment.

Empowering the Manufacturing Industry Through Decentralised AI

AI is big business-US venture capital investment in the sector reached $6.6 billion in the first three quarters of 2018, compared to $3.9 billion in the same period the year before.

Technology to Optimize Your Manufacturing Plant

Without compromising quality, focusing on optimizing plant processes will reduce time and money spent, therefore increasing profits. Here are five optimization techniques for manufacturing facilities.

MFGWatch 2019 Report

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
