A production line is a factory system in which components of the end product are moved by conveyor through various modules. At each module a manual or automated production line operation is performed without stopping the flow of production.
Production Lines And Their Manufacturers
The famous car manufacturer Henry Ford improved the assembly line process that produced his vehicles by installing the world's first conveyor belt based production line. This 1914 innovation opened the way for inexpensive mass production by improving efficiency, aiding standardisation and speeding up processes. Since that time there have been many advances in design and technology that have led to automation and materials handling systems capable of meeting the most complex demands of modern assembly requirements. SIEMENS offer world renowned excellence in their range of automotive production lines. The company offers intelligent modular units seamlessly integrated into the process via PROFIBUS/PROFINET. EXMAC provide world class automated production lines at the forefront of technology and supply their systems to a wide range of industries. COMAU produce a highly regarded automated assembly station that is perfect for all power train assembly processes and fully compliant with the principles of lean manufacturing. The OSAI company have developed a solid reputation for superb connector assembly machines, circular assembly line machinery and production line machinery. GROB have extensive experience in assembly line technology and manufacturing. Various industries have benefited from the supremely high standards of the WOLF production of modular production lines. The ARTUR BÄR Orbit assembly system offers an extremely innovative system solution, being both flexible and efficient in both semi-automatic and fully-automatic operations. Other popular manufacturers include SITEC, FIAM, AUNO and ROHWEDDER.
The Advantages To Be Gained By Buying Used Production Lines At Auction
Buying new production lines may seem to be the obvious choice, but often it is simply not practical. New equipment is frequently not immediately available and there may be months of waiting involved. If you want to buy used production lines, however, you will find these are available immediately. Moreover, seeing what is available from used production lines auctions will give the option of comparable models from which to choose. New production lines can prove extremely expensive, whereas buying used production lines can represent a substantial saving, thereby allowing funding for other areas of production. Regarding the production line efficiency and durability, used production lines for sale are often shown to have a long and productive life, in many cases requiring less maintenance than new equipment.
