CONTINUOUS MOTION ASSEMBLY

How Continuous Motion Systems Maximize Productivity

In terms of high speed assembly, output doesn’t get any faster than with a continuous motion system. But speed isn’t the only benefit of continuous motion technology.

It’s about optimizing the process for the most consistent, highest quality performance. In continuous motion, multiple processes occur without interruption for every cycle, effectively overlapping. And because the tooling never loses contact with the individual components, part alignment is maintained during assembly.

The result is smoother processes that are much less likely to damage either your components or the machinery itself.

The benefits to your assembly include:

  • Significantly lower maintenance costs than indexing systems.
  • Multiple, longer processes (some up to 3-4 seconds) automated on one machine—cycling at 400 cpm or higher.
  • More “up time” in production, resulting in higher net yields.
  • Customized machine design with smaller footprint (sometimes by factors of 10 or more compared to other technologies).

Your company can maximize these benefits by designing new products with continuous motion assembly in mind. Contact Haumiller today, and let’s get started.

HIGH-SPEED INTERMITTENT & CONTINUOUS MOTION ASSEMBLY

What Is High-Speed Assembly?

In terms of high speed assembly, output doesn’t get any faster than with a continuous motion system. But speed isn’t the only benefit of continuous motion technology.

It’s about optimizing the process for the most consistent, highest quality performance. In continuous motion, multiple processes occur without interruption for every cycle, effectively overlapping. And because the tooling never loses contact with the individual components, part alignment is maintained during assembly.

The result is smoother processes that are much less likely to damage either your components or the machinery itself.

How Continuous Motion Systems Maximize Productivity

In terms of high-speed assembly, output doesn’t get any faster than with a continuous motion system. These systems incorporate multiple processes that can occur without interruption for every cycle, effectively overlapping the processes. This allows the system to operate significantly faster – up to 1,200 parts per minute.

However, speed isn’t the only benefit of continuous motion technology. It also provides an opportunity to optimize a process for the most consistent, highest quality performance.

In continuous motion, because the tooling never loses control of the individual components, part alignment is maintained during assembly. This produces smoother processes that are much less likely to damage either your components or the machinery itself.

Benefits of High-Speed Continuous Motion Assemblies

  • Significantly lower maintenance costs than indexing systems, due to smoother and gentler motions.
  • Multiple, longer processes (up to 3-4 seconds) automated on one machine
  • More “up time” in production, resulting in higher net yields
  • Customized machine design with smaller footprint (sometimes by factors of 10 or more compared to other technologies)
