TQC are specialists in the design and manufacture of bespoke production line equipment, assembly stations and semi or fully automated production lines.
Automatic assembly line and assembly machine technology has been supplied by TQC across a range of industries sectors for over 35 years.
An automatic assembly machine can incorporate automatic testing, robot automation and mechanical handling, all of which elements have been supplied successfully to many industries. The type of equipment is driven by our customers requirements. Most technology modules have been integrated by TQC into our fully automated machines.
TQC supply the correct automatic machine or assembly line system to meet the specification. The industrial automation machinery we supply can be a single assembly bench, a number of assembly machines to suit a cell layout (including robotic transfer between the machine systems), or a pallet transfer system. All the assembly systems that we provide incorporate modular construction and technology modules to allow the customer to expand as the specification changes.
Typical machines include handling a single part each minute, with recent systems handling parts in excess of 120 per minute including tray packing and bagging machine integration.
TQC also has significant experience in providing Industry 4.0 systems including Linking to MES (manufacturing Execution Systems), SCADA and Cloud Data capture. TQC has taken part in several EU Funded Research programmes working on Flexible Reconfigurable Automation, production line data capture, requirements analysis, plug and produce, agent technology etc. TQC is currently hosting a 3-year PhD student registered at The University of Nottingham working on Digital Manufacturing.
From a machine for assembling small components for the medical and pharmaceutical industries to larger automation systems to handle metal castings for the automotive industry, each TQC automatic assembly line machine solution is designed to provide the best method for reducing labour costs, increasing output and eliminating manual handling concerns.
