ASSEMBLY AUTOMATION IN SMALL ENTERPRISES

ASSEMBLY AUTOMATION IN SMALL ENTERPRISES This article presents a study on assembly automation in small subcontracting enterprises. In this scenario the evaluated production volumes of each product limit the competitiveness of flexible assembly systems. At the same time the uncertainty of the economic life of the product causes high risk factors in the use of assembly transfer lines. The proposed solution is characterized by the employment of an asynchronous line with singlepurpose automatic stations and manual stations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Assembly Automation Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This article presents a study on assembly automation in small subcontracting enterprises. In this scenario the evaluated production volumes of each product limit the competitiveness of flexible assembly systems. At the same time the uncertainty of the economic life of the product causes high risk factors in the use of assembly transfer lines. The proposed solution is characterized by the employment of an asynchronous line with singlepurpose automatic stations and manual stations.
