work along side the machine SEMI-AUTOMATED MACHINES & SYSTEMS
Semi-Automated Machines and Systems are ideal for applications that require an improvement in manufacturing processes but are not able to completely remove operator assistance. At SDC we conduct an overall project assessment to determine which operations in a semi-automatic application will be performed by the machine or by a machine operator. We analyze the precision and power requirements to ensure our systems are engineered to fully utilize operators and minimize the complexity and overall cost.
We conduct risk assessments to ensure our semi-automated systems are composed of an ergonomic machine layout and custom machine safety control mechanisms, that allow operators to work along side the machine in the most comfortable and safe way. Our safety systems include using light curtains, physical guarding, collaborative robots and smart technology.
