Purchasing appropriate non-standard automation equipment is the latest problem of enterprise purchasing staff. To purchase good mechanical equipment for enterprises can not only improve the production efficiency of enterprises, but also reduce labor costs. Why not? How to choose a regular, professional and reliable non-standard automation equipment company for the procurement with relatively poor procurement experience?
Must be the most concerned about procurement is the price of non-standard automatic equipment. Price is really a very sensitive topic. I believe all buyers want to buy better equipment for less money. However, we all know that there is a link between price and product quality. Therefore, we can not blindly go greedy small cheap, buy those cheap machines.
Although some machines are cheaper when they are purchased, they are obviously not as good as those which are a little more expensive in use. The maintenance and repair of these machines cost a lot of money. Therefore, for the procurement of non-standard automation equipment, we must look at the function and configuration.
The second is to see whether the process is suitable for the release of automation equipment
Stability of components: whether the quality of products flowing down from upstream is stable. If the parts are not stable, the quality of the products processed by the equipment may not be as good as that by manual work, and the equipment may be shut down frequently.
Operation complexity: the complexity of operation determines the cost of automation equipment and the feasibility of automation equipment technology. Even for industrial robots, complex assembly operations are difficult to achieve.
Packaging method of parts: if you want to realize automatic feeding, you need to change the original packaging method so that the feeding mechanism can grasp the parts. The cost increase caused by the change of packaging method should be included in the automation cost.
Separability of parts: if you want to realize manual feeding, you need to evaluate the separability of parts. Especially for some small parts, such as screws.
The last thing to pay attention to when purchasing non-standard automation equipment is the after-sales service of non-standard automation equipment manufacturers. Once such expensive machines have problems and need to be repaired, it will be a big expense. Therefore, we need to choose an automation equipment manufacturer with good after-sales service.
Shandong Hongbao Automation Co., Ltd. can not only provide door-to-door delivery and installation services for purchasers, but also immediately carry out door-to-door maintenance in case of any problems during the use of the machine, so as to reduce the impact of machine failure on the production progress of the buyer.
