CONSULTATIVE NEEDS ANALYSIS (BENCHMARKING)
Through experience and the adoption of world wide best practice, ASA is in a unique position to identify potential opportunities within your current manufacturing processes.
These can be in the form of bottle necks, constraints imposed by batch processing, environmental compliance, manufacturing flexibility, and material usage, to name but a few. Global competition is causing manufacturing companies to scrutinise every aspect of their business, with the aim of maximising productivity and profitability. The team at ASA can conduct a site visit, where opportunities can be identified for employing best practice to improve cost, quality, piece price, throughput and robustness in everyday manufacturing.
Once an opportunity is identified, ASA has the capability to complete a ROBCAD and/ or ROBOGUIDE simulation, allowing the customer to visualise the end result of the recommendation, and the tangible relationship it will form with the revised manufacturing process. Process constraints such as cycle time can be estimated, as well as material usage and other factors critical to the project’s into a production environment. These can include but not limited to Space requirements, robot reach \limitations, hoppers, conveyors, spindles etc.

AUTOMATED FACILITIES SUPPORT
ASA is in a unique position where it can place its personnel at the coal face of manufacturing, under what we like to call an “Automated Facilities Support Agreement”, or AFSA.

Maybe we can say something about material reduction and cost savings. These personnel are trained to become an integrated link in your daily operations and strategic planning processes, bringing best practice to the business from their experience both here and abroad.
