Production automation makes an important contribution to improving productivity

The goals to be achieved, available budgets and forecasts determine which form of production automation should actually be used to achieve the optimal result.


Automation as a solution to your production problem

Production automation can be used if you strive to increase output, reduce costs (efficiency), improve volume flexibility, mix production, quality improvement in the workplace, but also for ergonomic reasons.

The optimal combination with the right result

We can provide you with various solutions to achieve your desired production target. Examples include: assembly and production lines, workplace layouts, handling systems and robotics. Both turn-key and under direction and at every level of automation. Of course, software can also be the solution in situations to achieve the right result. You can think of digital (real-time) work instructions, OEE performance measurement and reporting software.

Below you will find an overview of the automation solutions we offer.

Production automation and mechanization for the manufacturing industry

An erratic market demand, a large product mix, a limited lifespan of products and rapid developments in production technology. This is the context in which the manufacturing industry operates today. Companies that can deal with these changes quickly and effectively have an advantage over the competition.
Boundaries can be shifted through good cooperation with chain partners.

From highly automated assembly lines to manual systems

In your assembly process we guarantee an optimal “mix”, in which requirements such as batch size, changeover flexibility and volume flexibility are optimized.

industrial robots

Why use a robot or cobot?

A simple and one-sided task can often be done more cheaply and reliably by robots than by humans. In addition, they can go to places that are difficult for people to reach and perform tasks there.

Ook als een taak te vies, gevaarlijk of fysiek onmogelijk is voor een mens, wordt de robot ingezet. Daarnaast kunnen complexe taken vaak nauwkeuriger worden uitgevoerd door robots, met een beter resultaat als gevolg.

The developments in the field of robotics are going very fast and robots are being used in more and more areas.These developments bring robotization within the reach of SMEs.


Flow integrated product-specific test automation

Each test system is specific. But what binds all these systems is the fact that testing at its core adds little value to the end product. This means that the systems must be efficient and effective, without negatively affecting the output of the production system. In the design of the test application, (future) product changes and the desired flexibility are taken into account. Depending on the customer's process, we know random QA applications, 100% QC machines and hybrids where a production step is combined with a test step. The test equipment is often integrated into the production flow.

Analysis of the production problem before making investment proposals

In more complex or new processes, it is desirable to analyze the problem before making investment proposals for production automation. In this phase it is important to use experience and the right expertise. We like to think along with you.

VisualFactory: quality, productivity & efficiency

Use Case - One-piece-flow assembly line with robot vision cell

SAG Alutech Nederland BV is a specialist in the development and production of fuel tanks, hydraulic tanks and storage cabinets made of aluminum, steel and stainless steel for the commercial vehicle industry. It is a development partner for all major truck and bus manufacturers.

Their request to develop an assembly line to deliver different types of fuel tanks completely assembled and just-in-time with 100% quality control, has been worked out by us as follows:

Working together on the factory of the future

Total Productivity (TP) and TNO have maintained a pleasant working relationship for more than fifteen years, including in the Flexible Manufacturing Field Lab on the Brainport Industries Campus in Eindhoven (BIC). Here, supply and demand in the field of digital innovation and robotization are linked. The BIC is an inspiring practical environment where production companies, educational and knowledge institutions and suppliers can use each other's knowledge, possibilities and network. TP participates in the Flexible Manufacturing Field Lab with a work cell equipped with VisualFactory (VF).

Is reshoring also something for your company?

Reshoring is the recall of business activities that you had previously carried out in low-wage countries. By bringing business activities back to the Netherlands, you save costs as a company and you have more control over quality. Development company NHN and Total Productivity help companies to explore the possibilities of reshoring.

Total Productivity joins forces with Confed Group

This new collaboration between Total Productivity and Confed Group results in a completely new concept. By joining forces, we can now market a total concept that is fully tailored to the wishes of our customers

TNO develops canvas model for optimal cooperation between humans and robots

As part of the Smart Manufacturing Industrial Application South Holland program of TNO, Alex Valkering and Hans Totté were able to contribute ideas at RoboHouse during a pilot for a new workshop. Namely the development of a canvas model with which the optimal cooperation and interaction between humans and robots can be determined.
