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.”

Demco Automation Supports Technology in Philly Charter School

With technology being such an important part of the world today and into the future, Demco Automation is excited to support The Laboratory Charter School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in their quest to have computers as a useful tool in the classroom. The computers will help the students, aged 5-11 learn how to use computer-related technology in a hands-on way rather than using alternatives, such as pencil and paper activities.

Skills such as word processing, use of the keyboard, internet navigation, web-based research, and overall knowledge of the technology will be covered in the new classwork. For additional information, please visit these links:

Demco Automation Sponsors Fox Chase Cancer Center Event

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.

Feature Article – Medical Device Manufacturing

Demco Automation is referenced as a cost-effective, modular, and flexible automation solution for medical device contract manufacturers.

Medical Product Outsourcing Magazine, “Putting the Pieces Together –  Assembly and automation operations must be nimble to meet ever-changing client demands and product needs” – by Mark Crawford

Modular Automation

Many contract manufacturers lean toward semi-automated assembly processes that are nimble and scalable so they can work with rapidly changing OEM demands and get products to market faster. Smaller product lots and shorter product life cycles also keep full automation at low priority because of the time involved to validate the larger-scale process, as well as the high cost in machinery and time. “Using modular automated assembly equipment is a good way to reduce the overall cost of production,” said Rudolf Pavlik, product development manager for ASI, a Millersburg, Pa.-based contract manufacturer of OEM healthcare products and single-use systems.

“Demco Automation’s Wedge system, for example, is highly customizable and a relatively inexpensive way to automate lower-volume projects.” This system consists of either tooled or untooled stations with distributed controls that plug into a base chassis (bench-top, rotary dial, inline and walking beam models) for immediate start up. Each station is a tooling plate that is equipped with an on-board controls box that includes a controller, wiring, valve manifold and input blocks; they also come with pinning, tapping and key holes that align with docking stations on the chassis platform. Stations can operate alone as a tabletop station or plug into the base chassis to operate in a manual, semi-automatic or automatic mode. According to Pavlik, Demco’s proprietary Windows-based PLC programming (programmable logic controller; primarily used to control machinery) is easy to operate; stations are programmed by simply checking boxes on a PC screen for a sequence of designated inputs and outputs. – Read the entire article at: Putting the Pieces Together
