Where We Stand Now
With international competition on the rise, how do you keep your customers coming back? In countries like China and India manufacturing exports continue to grow. These countries have implemented a new policy which emphasizes the development of domestic innovative capability.
This has led to increased spending on R&D and a growing researcher base. Soon, not only will the part be available at a lower cost but at comparable quality as well. If developed countries are to
remain competitive in the global economy, they will have to rely more on technology. Investment in technology is therefore a crucial factor for sustained economic health. A continuous process of change, innovation and productivity will allow you to be competitive as the global market continues to evolve. Innovate, or lose.
Whoever makes things better, cheaper, faster wins! America must continue to bethe leader.
In order to compete with countries like China and India we need to adopt equipment and technology that will lower production cost while enhancing the product quality at the same time. Companies must now look for new and innovative ways to improve their processes, their workers productivity and, ultimately, their overall equipment effectiveness.
Let PWS Help
With quality and productivity as buzzwords, and customers demanding superior products, implementing an automated welding system may determine whether a company remains competitive. Automating your welding production offer three main advantages: decreased variable labor costs, improved weld quality and decreased scrap.
Benefits of Automated Welding
Decreased Variable Labor Costs: A machine controlled system always repeats the same welding parameters. Reliance on human welders dramatically increases a manufacturer’s labor costs. A fully automatic system with sufficient stations can run at four or at eight times the pace of a skilled welder.
Improved Weld Quality: Mechanized welding improves weld integrity and repeatability. Humans tend to “smooth over” a mistake with the torch, hiding lack of penetration or a possible flawed weld.
Decreased Scrap/Rework: It’s never good to throw away parts with accumulated significant value because of a welders lack of detail. Automating weld parameters and part placement decreased the error potential.
