John Henry Foster serves many sectors within the Industrial industry. Some of these sectors include:
- Construction Equipment
JHFoster sets out to increase efficiency and production for all sectors of the Industrial industry. We do this through installing and servicing robotic, automation, and compressed air systems to optimize your applications.
The Industrial Industry and Compressed Air Applications
Often times, compressed air systems are used to power industrial applications. Compressed air powers stamping, clamping, power tools, tool cleaning, spraying, injection molding, and even more applications. However, companies must be careful when using compressed air systems for power. Compressed air systems use a large sum of energy. It is imperative to know how much energy your machine is using, and if it is using too much energy.
It is possible that your system is using too much energy. Also possible, your compressed air system may not be the right fit for your application. Either way, you are likely wasting money on energy costs.
An easy fix for this? Have routine checkups performed on your system. These checkups will establish if there is a better, less energy using, solution for your application. Also, a checkup will establish whether an issue with your system is causing wasted energy. A common issue identified by this checkup is a leak in your system. In fact, this is the most common issue with a compressed air system, and it is a costly one.
Industrial Tasks and Automation
Automation can speed up the production of products and industrial applications. John Henry Foster distributes many automation products to help with production applications. Some of these products include: conveyors, electrical control panels, t-slot aluminum framing, pneumatic products, and robotics.
Robotic arms and accessories themselves support many applications that are traditionally performed by human workers. Some of these applications include:
- Pick & Place
- Packaging & Palletizing
- Surface Finishing
- Machine Tending
- Injection Molding
- Screw Driving
- Lab Analysis
- Gluing, Dispensing & Welding
By allowing robotic arms and their accessories to perform these tasks, human workers are available to perform other tasks that take more intuitive skills.
