Production Automation, Mechanical Handling & Production Line Technology

TQC's production line and production automation, coupled with mechanical handling equipment can be integrated with on-line automatic test equipment for use in any manufacturing industry. Automated assembly systems and other mechanical handling or production machinery can be supplied into industries including the food, brewery, automotive, consumer and pharmaceutical industries. The customer requirement drives the solution with production line equipment supplied to automatically assembly, test and handle the components as required.

The assembly system can be as complex as is required, from a simple fixture with automated test to a fully automatic production line system with automatic platen transfer between stations.

Each TQC unit is designed to provide the best production automation solution for reducing labour costs, increasing output and eliminating manual handling concerns.

We supply equipment to meet your production facility needs, a simple bench top system, a more complex upgrade of your existing equipment, or a fully integrated production unit, TQC are able to provide a complete solution with a professional approach.

Automated Production Facility for Automotive Solenoid Valve

TQC Ltd. have performed a number of integrated production line projects resulting in reduced labour and increased quality of product.

The method by which TQC has succeeded in this area is by utilising existing technology modules and integrating proprietary production equipment into the automated system.

Although a modular design approach has been used throughout, the configuration of the equipment has been of a bespoke nature.

Many of the assembly, handling and test systems supplied have an integrated control system incorporating both PLC and PC control. As a result of the combination of controllers, sophisticated statistical process control has been included for real time monitoring of the production process and final function testing. In addition to 100% product validation and test full MIS facilities for production recording have been included in many systems supplied.

TQC's’ integrated in-house expertise covering all aspects of design, manufacture and assembly in the areas of mechanical, electrical and control, providing a professional and experienced service to our clients.
