Building Futures Through Automation!
We are working towards a digital revolution. We’ve already experienced it in many ways, with the incorporation of smart technology in our daily lives, and in many business environments. But the changes are still coming, and there’s a lot of opportunity ahead, calling for some interesting and simple solutions.
Wallmount enclosures are among the best of those simple solutions, offering a way to safely and cleanly protect any mounted machinery or parts, especially in sterile environments. The food and beverage industry are often challenged with the kinds of technology they can incorporate into their factories, due to a need for that equipment to be sterile, as well as the surroundings. Wallmounted enclosures are one option, allowing for the thick blue silicone gasket to provide a seal between the enclosure and the wall. Continue reading
When utilizing compressed air, there are many factors to consider, according to your specific needs. Ultimate application is what highlight your priorities, and these will vary according to each individual situation. Some machines might need specific attributes, others might need a lack of specific qualities; ultimately, the goal should be to have an efficient system which meets the needs you have. However when it comes down to it, true efficiency is the ability to make a quality product while maximizing time.
There are a few principles for compressed air efficiency, which are important to consider, especially when anticipating the purchase of machinery or systems.
Many medium-sized businesses are on the lookout for new ways to increase productivity, without expanding the current labor force. What if there were ways to help your team be more productive, without asking additional effort or time from them?
That’s where robotics can provide an answer.
But the question we hear most frequently resounds: Are we too small for robotics?
Do we have enough work to justify a heavy piece of machinery? One with great expense and a learning curve? Would it really make us that much more productive? The answers might truly surprise you. We have compiled some quick questions and answers that might help make your decision clear.
It's easy to get caught up in automation. There are a variety of robots on the market, but it's difficult to find the perfect robot for your specific application. Schedule a robot demo with our Automation Experts now.

If you’re considering introducing industrial robots into your production line, it is a good idea to examine all the advantages and disadvantages they will bring to your company. Industrial robots increase the efficiency of your production process because; there are endless amounts of tasks and functions they can be programmed to carry out. Robots have a higher accuracy level which allows them to achieve higher quality products while using a fraction of the time and resources that humans in your production line would. Continue reading

Who knew all those old robot movies would end up having some truth to them? Technology continues to advance with each day that passes and robotic tech continues growing. Collaborative robot arms are in style just like ripped jeans, but why are they so helpful?
People come to us with many reasons to automate. The most common reasons our customers bring to us is improved productivity, improved quality, reduced scrap, safety, and much more. A clearly defined and communicated goal prior to project launch will help ensure success before dollar one is spent. All too often we are brought in to fix a competitor’s solution where goals weren’t defined early enough, leading to disappointment and sometimes failure to execute.
The SQF (Safe Quality Food) Institute is recognized by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) which gives companies the recognition they need to supply products to leading manufacturers and retailers worldwide. More and more food processors and food packaging manufacturers recognize the importance of becoming SQF certified to meet customer demands and to stay competitive
in the marketplace. To become certified:
• Facilities must verify and validate the existing compressed air used is clean and free of any contamination that could harm the food or consumer.
• In situations where compressed air comes into contact with food, either directly or indirectly, high efficiency filters must be in place at point-of-use.
• Facilities must have a preventative maintenance program in place to ensure proper filter maintenance as well as regularly testing compressed air to verify there is no bacteria present.
• When testing for bacteria, aseptic sample collection needs to be used. (Testing will be conducted either in-house or by contracted third party)
