The Leading Company for Assembly Automation 

As the leading company for assembly automation, you can count on ETG to ensure that your production, assembly, and/or packaging lines are brought into the 21st century. Automation is critical in this modern world as the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages of traditional processes. Your competitors have likely upgraded, so don’t delay. 

Our expert team will work closely with you to ensure you receive a bespoke automated assembly system that fits your purpose and will manufacture quality products quickly. You can learn more about our services and assembly automation by reading below. First, what is assembly automation? 

Assembly automation is an automated setup where products and equipment are manufactured quickly and to specification through robotic automation. These setups consist of single and/or multiple robotic automation systems built to bespoke requirements, tailored to manufacture specific products and equipment. 

The robotic equipment will work in line with various other systems, building the final product quickly and to the necessary quality standards.   

Benefits of Single and Multiple Robotic Automation Systems 

In the beginning, robotics was a new technology, and the associated implementation costs were largely unknown. Therefore, most companies stuck with tried and tested processes. Today, automated assembly lines are commonplace as the technology is well established and the associated costs well known. 

There are major benefits to switching over to assembly automation, such as freeing up skilled labourers to focus on more specialised tasks. The laborious, monotonous tasks are left to the robots. 

Other benefits include: 

  • Lower Costs 
  • Efficiency and Speed Improvements 
  • Improved Analytics and Data 
  • Versatility 
  • Increased Customer Satisfaction 
  • Boost to Employee Productivity 
  • Ensures Quality and Repeatability 

Robotics cut operational costs, improve efficiency, and allow for fewer labourers for the same output, saving you money on wages and training. 

So long as automated assembly lines are maintained and serviced regularly, they never stop. They don’t tire or make mistakes because of fatigue or distractions. They are faster and more efficient than human labourers. 

Any task that is performed on an automated assembly line is logged. This way, you have accurate information for all production line activities – more so than with human workers. 

Robotics can be implemented across a wide range of industries to manufacture, assemble, and package all sorts of products. And the higher efficiency and more reliable output translate to more consistent quality, which will keep your customers happy. 

An automated assembly line frees up workers to carry out more important tasks, and it allows you to conserve and focus energy where it’s needed. Assembly automation also ensures quality and repeatability. No matter how many times a single product is produced, it’ll be uniform in all aspects with zero variation, which would normally occur with traditional processes. 

Rotary Indexing Systems

One such system that we develop here at ETG is rotary indexing systems. The process of rotary indexing involves a repeated angular displacement during a machine cycle that’s followed by a motionless dwell. Part of this system involves a rotary indexing table that’s engineered to make repetitive movements around a platform.  

In short, rotary indexing systems are essentially precision work-positioning devices that index parts to be machined or worked across multiple operations. These systems comprise motors and mechanical power transmission devices coupled with sensors, controllers, and encoders. Electric motors are utilised for cam drives or servo tables. Mechanical cam indexers only index to set angles but are relatively low cost and can perform precision movements.

Assembly Lines 

Assembly lines are the bread and butter of what we do here at ETG. An assembly line is an entire setup and usually consists of single or multiple robotic cells. Each part of the assembly line performs a vital function, such as: 

  • Fabrication 
  • Assembly 
  • Packaging 
  • Inspection 

With your process entirely automated, you can pull your workers from manual, laborious tasks to work on more specialised tasks. Here at ETG, we design, develop, and deploy automated assembly lines that are tailored to your requirements.  

Palletised Systems and Indexing Systems  

Palletised and indexing are robotic systems used to place large, heavy loads onto pallets, ready to be loaded onto lorries for shipping. There are different types of palletised systems, such as robotic palletising, high-level palletising, and low-level palletising. A key benefit of palletised systems is that goods, drums, cases, and crates can be placed onto pallets quickly, efficiently, and safely. 

We at ETG can deliver a standard option or a customised solution to suit your requirements. Our customised solutions are based on precision belt of chain indexers. Palletised and indexing systems are well-suited to medium and high-speed automation.

Vision Systems

Vision systems play a vital role in the inspection portion of the production process. They provide image-based inspection for various industrial and manufacturing applications. These systems incorporate a smart camera calibrated with set instructions that direct it to automatically examine products as they move along the assembly line. 

They commonly incorporate 2D and 3D cameras for 360-degree analysis, allowing for much more rigorous quality control, product sorting, etc. There are various types of vision systems, including: 

  • Defect Inspection Systems 
  • Custom Packaging Inspection 
  • Custom Web Inspections 
  • Custom Tolerance Measurement 
  • Process Control Vision Systems 

As such, there are vision systems to suit any application, so whatever your manufacturing requirements, if you require a vision system, we’ll design one that’s perfect for your operations.
