Fixed automation systems are used in mass production and continuous flow systems. Hard automation operations outperform human output, producing higher speeds and efficiency to meet difficult production demands.
Manufacturers who benefit most from fixed automation systems are facilities that produce a singular, high-volume, low-variable part or component—that’s because each segment of a hard or fixed automation system is designed to perform a specific, repetitive task.
Integrating a fixed automation system into your production line means relying on a complex set of operations composed of several coordinated sequences. While fixed automation requires a significant amount of investment upfront, manufacturing facilities see ROI in a relatively short amount of time. Fixed automation systems are found in automated assembly processes, material handling, chemical manufacturing processes, paint and coating processes, material conveyor systems, and transfer lines.
