AUTOMATED ASSEMBLY WORKSHOP
Working With Systems Integrators
Automation is expensive. A simple rotary-indexing dial system with four to six stations might cost $300,000. A linear system with multiple assembly and test stations can easily top $1 million and take a year to execute. The risks for both sides are high. OEMs want to be first to market, and they don’t want to be stuck with an expensive white elephant. Systems integrators don’t want to eat the costs of engineering underdeveloped parts or processes.
Fortunately, finding the right integrator and establishing a good working relationship need not be difficult. A little planning up-front can ensure a smooth project from start to finish.
This presentation that will discuss:
- How to pick an integrator
- How to write an RFQ
- How to evaluate proposals
- How the system build process works
