How Do Electrical Panels Increase Production?

How Does Automating with Electrical Control Panels Benefit My Company?

With all the automation tools currently available today, there is still a lot of time spent performing tasks manually. Furthermore, organizations miss opportunities to automate business processes that can save their employees’ time and boost productivity. John Henry Foster assists you in automating with electrical control panels. The automation process includes the latest in electrical design, data collection, PLC, pneumatic, and electromechanical technologies that consistently deliver high-quality performance. In short, automating these tasks delivers safety and reliability.

Our electrical engineering team partners with customers to build cost-effective solutions that meet technical specifications and business objectives.

We assisted a local canning company in increasing their production and reducing overall costs. Overall, we helped them implement a can sorting machine system.

Benefits with automating with electrical control panels.

CHALLENGE

A local manufacturing facility looked for ways to increase output of their canning production. They ran into difficulties sorting out the defective cans from their overall marketable product. All the cans eventually ended up together on a pallet. Then, agency temp workers manually sorted through the cans depending on date and imperfect product. As a result, the workers were only able to get through half a pallet a day. This slowed down production rates and costed money to resolve. The temp jobs also had a very high turnover costing additional time and money to the Company’s bottom line.

SOLUTION

JHFoster teamed up with the manufacturing company and designed a can sorting machine, featuring technologies such as:

  • A vision system
  • PLC
  • DC Drive
  • AC Drive
  • Blowoff
