Abstract

Summary Determining the level of automation that will benefit your facility should begin by taking inventory of the processes with which the parts are treated. In the case of plating plants that offer multiple services—such zinc plating, zinc alloy or zinc nickel—a computer-controlled automated line may allow several processes to run on a single line. Plants processing different paints might find it advantageous to feed multiple paint lines with one pretreatment line. In the event it is determined that economics do not justify a fullyautomated system when outfitting a plant, the lines should be planned and purchased to allow expansion and integration in the future.
