Productivity in manufacturing has always been an area of concern and by bringing in automation, Man and Machine hopes the industry would benefit in terms of efficiency, helping to lower production costs and being more commercially competitive. The Future of Automated Manufacturing A simple web form can be used to create models, quotes, manufacturing drawings, bills of material and even generate NC machine code at the touch of a button. A utomating the manufacturing process is about increasing capacity without increasing headcount, by taking labour cycles our of the design or production processes. Using a combination of software integration skills and unique software platforms, li e product con gurators ustom and on gurator , cloud based solutions usion and integrated so tware ypermill and utodes we have a power ul solutions set the can increase efficiency throughout the manu acturing wor flow. simple web orm can be used to create models, quotes, manufacturing drawings, bills o material and even generate machine code at the touch of a button. In some instances, through the use of feature recognition in the rules based engineer and integrated pac ages it is even possible to generate machine code to drive, . , axis and axis machines to automatically manufacture the products. his can dramatically reduce the level o technical s ills needed to drive the machines, o ten a prohibitive actor in manufacturing companies being able to scale the use o expensive machinery or expand the capacity in their wor shops. roductivity in manu acturing has always been an area of concern and by bringing in automation, an and achine hopes the industry would bene t in terms o efficiency, helping to lower production costs and being more commercially competitive. manu acturing contributes to and improvements in automation, use of information technology and investment in are critical to continuous production improvements or the industry. or more in ormation on automated manu acturing and how an and achine can help please get in touch on 01844 263700, email marketing@manandmachine.co.uk or visit www.manandmachine.co.uk
