Plastic Bonding Revs Up - Fast Magazine

ATM Automation, based in Leicestershire, has recently expanded its plastic bonding range of machinery for the automotive industry to include a fully automated gluing system. 

Features of these systems include three large nests, Poka Yoke checks, light guarding, a robot and measuring system. ATM uses its own in-house control system. OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) can be loaded on to the systems, which shows a percentage of 'good parts' being produced. MES (Manufacturing Execution System) is also an option, which gathers data from the factory floor and links manufacturing systems. 

"Both technologies show decision makers the productivity of their shop floor. Seeing the overall truly productive manufacturing time is the best way to identify the percentage of defective parts," says Sabir Hirji, Sales Director and Managing Director at ATM. "One vital feature on all systems is Poka Yoke checks, which ensures the components cannot be removed from the machine until bonding and verifications have been completed. All systems are designed and configured to suit the individual components and production volumes, based on field-proven ATM technology."
