Scalable Automation a Path to Turnkey Success

Tooled AD16 for medical device industryU.S. TECH MAGAZINE – August 2016
by Stephen Maund President & CEO – Demco Automation

The world of custom automation used in electronics and other industries is a game of which direction to proceed — user-operated benchtop stations, or full turnkey systems. By creating a scalable automation strategy from the beginning, equipment reuse, risk reduction, and incremental implementation can be realized. By approaching an automation strategy in an incremental way, benefits such as the opportunity to prove risky or untested processes before “going all in” on a full turnkey system, a reduction in initial capital outlay at the beginning of a program, and the quick launch of critical processes for production are gained.

Before starting a custom automation project, be sure to do the homework and plan obsolescence out of the strategy. Use the principles of modularity, scalability and flexibility to create a reconfigurable automation system for the production process. In the end, it can extend budget dollars and increase the longevity of equipment in a competitive global marketplace.

10-Station rotary dial with one tooled process stations (Wedge stations)Assembly Magazine

“…assemblers may want to give rotary indexing dials a second look. Machine builders have used new control technologies and some creative engineering to overcome the old limitations of dial systems. Assemblers may find that today’s rotary dials are more flexible than they once thought.”

“For example, Demco’s Wedge® system consists of preconfigured workstations that slide interchangeably into standard rotary or linear base machines. The base machine is run by a small PLC, which doesn’t control the stations, but rather acts as a traffic cop, coordinating their activity.”

airlogoblackrgb1For the third year, Demco Automation was a program sponsor for the Bucks County Chapter of the Board of Associates of Fox Chase Cancer Center’s 2014 fund raising event held at the James A. Michener Art Museum.  The event is used to raise funds for cancer research and all money raised at the event benefited research at Fox Chase Cancer Center with a  goal to raise $200,000.  Since 1983, the Bucks County Chapter has raised $3.6 million for the Fox Chase Cancer Center.

This year’s “Special Pledge” benefited precision medicine research. At Fox Chase, cancer specialists are able to use an individual’s unique DNA sequences to determine that person’s risk of cancer. They also use DNA sequencing to identify targeted treatments that can provide the best outcome for an individual patient. You can read more about precision medicine research here.
