Solutions for factories

Now more than ever conveyor systems and automation is a key tool in in driving transformation, improving operational efficiencies and improving the speed and accuracy of your operations.

CSL help you by designing and installing state-of-the-art solutions that redefine efficiency and precision on the factory floor. Find out how our automated systems, integrating advanced control, robotics, and conveyor technologies, can help you take your business to the next level.

Delving into bespoke systems

Bespoke Automation comes in many forms and addresses a wide range of industrial needs. It spans from simple product transfers between assembly or workstations. To more complex end-of-line processes involving packing, labelling, wrapping, and palletizing. Even seemingly modest conveyor projects can provide significant benefits within a short timeframe. Yet, automation hardware is only as effective as the controlling software behind it. We offer a suite of control and integration packages to ensure seamless operation within your business.

Our offerings include;

  • Remote operator touchscreen HMI stations
  • Production data and reporting capabilities
  • Advanced features like barcode reading
  • Stock replenishment.

We commit to ensuring that our hardware and software work in harmony with your solutions.

Automation in factories

The integration of automation in factory operations goes beyond being a mere trend; it has become an essential requirement in today’s manufacturing landscape. Explore the benefits:

 

  • Enhanced efficiency: Embrace automated systems to minimise human errors and optimize workflow, ultimately enhancing overall operational efficiency within the factory.
  • Cost reduction: Significantly lower operational costs by automating tasks that were once labor-intensive, leading to a more cost-effective manufacturing process.
  • Increased accuracy: Experience precise order fulfillment through automation, resulting in heightened customer satisfaction as errors are minimised and accuracy is maximised.
  • Scalability: Easily adapt to fluctuating demands by scaling up your automated systems, providing a flexible and responsive solution to meet the dynamic needs of the manufacturing environment.

Essential elements for automation in factories

The success of automation in factories hinges on critical components that foster efficiency and innovation:

  • Factory Control System (FCS): Acts as the orchestrator for operations, synchronizing equipment, and ensuring a seamless workflow within the factory environment.
  • Automated machinery: Encompassing solutions for order picking, storage, and distribution operations, a variety of automated machinery elevates accuracy and boosts overall productivity on the factory floor.
  • Integration: Seamlessly unite your Factory Management System (FMS) with FCS to optimize the core of your automation initiative, ensuring a harmonized and efficient operation within the factory setting.

The ROI of warehouse and distribution automation

Over time you can benefit from substantial cost savings an automated processes will offer through reduced labour costs, operational inefficiencies, and error-related costs.

“As this was a new facility it was difficult to visualise the conveyor system prior to the mezzanine floor installation, but CSL provided a detailed 3D drawing which included both the mezzanine and the conveyors which brought clarity to this. The install process was smooth and the end results have allowed us to increase control, flexibility & volumes”
