Speed up the process from start to finish by choosing to have Tape Innovations do the assembly for you when the converting process is done. Our state-of the-art machines provide a value-added service to our customers. Let us do it all for you!
There are three types of assembly:
- Manual: Done by hand
- Semi-automatic: Done by humans + machines
- Fully automatic: Done via robotics
During the assembly process, we integrate components into semi-finished or finished products in our assembly department. These frequently involve our components as well as client-supplied or externally acquired components. This helps us to put together the profiles we make into finished items.
Benefits of automated or
semi-automated assembly include:
Nearly infinite repeatabilityHowever many units you need assembled, we have the ability to do it.
CONSISTENCYUnlike manual assembly, automatic assembly provides consistent performance, unit after unit.
Saves timeBy having us do the assembly piece of the process, you get a completely finished product. No extra steps needed.
Increases ThroughPutWith those time savings come greater throughput. More gets done quicker.
Saves moneyTime savings are money savings, but it’s also a matter of decreasing employee hours on a project.
Easily combined with other processes we doWhether it’s die cutting, slitting, wetjet cutting or other processes, we can integrate assembly into the mix.
Automated or semi-automated assembly is ideal when you have large runs in which you need a repetitive process to assemble those units. Think of a robot doing a repetitive task over and over on an assembly line. If you have a large number of units, automated or semi-automated assembly is the way to get the job done quickly, easily and economically.
If your run is very small and the assembly is very complicated, automation is generally not the way to go for you.
We extrude in a single operation wherever feasible thanks to smart design, reducing the need for further processing. For example, when it comes to mechanical assembly, we have all of the essential knowledge in-house to rivet and screw the appropriate pieces to the product. For our clients, assembly is a vital service.
You save time and money because we handle the assembly.
