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.
