How Automation Can Improve Product Quality
Tuesday, January 23, 2018

In the highly competitive industrial environment, more and more manufacturers are automating their processes for improving efficiency, reducing costs and increasing market share.

Automation of various industrial processes such as material handling, product assembly and packaging not only increases the speed of production but also improves product quality. But many wonder how automation can improve quality as human beings can do the same work as a machine?

To answer this question, we’ve highlighted five ways in which automation improves product quality.

1. No Human Error

Humans make mistakes as we are not perfect. Mistakes can happen due to any reason. For example, a worker can get distracted by a fellow worker, lose focus and let a wrong product pass through quality inspection. If several wrong products pass through, customers will start complaining and the company’s reputation will be in danger.

Human workers also have limited physical strength and capabilities. They can get tired and doze off at work which increases the chances of error in product quality inspection. Automation of quality control system eliminates the possibility of such errors. Automated systems never get tired, distracted or make mistakes to ensure that all products are inspected properly.

2. Consistency

Automation improves consistency. A program on automated system will run in the same manner every time it is used which means that the products will be inspected in the same fashion each time. The goal of product manufacturing is to make high quality products, but maintaining that quality is essential and only an automated system can help accomplish that.

3. Accuracy

Accuracy is just as important as consistency. In many situations exact placements, measurements and installations are required. If a process is not automated, there will always be some error and 100% identical results are never guaranteed. But with automation, it is possible as machines can be programmed to produce same results again and again.

4. Creating Complex Products

Some products are too complex for human beings to manufacture. Even if they attempt to manufacture such products, they’ll never be able to make them perfect. We are constrained by our limited capabilities while machines are free from such limitations.

Automated machines can make precise adjustments and complete risky tasks that are not possible for human beings.

5. Error Identification

Automated systems are able to detect errors that mostly escape the eyes of human beings. Sensors, triggers and data collectors record every process a machine performs. If there is any error or fault in the production process, automated systems will trigger an alarm and the manufacturing process will be stopped to prevent further problems.

It is truly worth investing in automation systems as they can greatly improve product quality and allow you to stay ahead of the competition. If you wish to install an automated system, contact Rilco Industrial Controls as we provide high quality automation products that are sure to meet your production requirements.
