Over recent years one of the areas that ECS have focused on has been the re-use and modification of existing equipment within the Automotive Industry. We believe that with the current financial climate affecting all sectors of our industry, the ability to re-utilise and prolong the working life cycle of expensive equipment is paramount for all our clients.
The majority of this work has been concentrated on Engine Assembly line facilities and machines.
Individual projects have included the following :-
Re-work of ABB Robot units
Camera Recognition Systems
Sub-Assembly Areas and conveyor systems.
Lineside component feeding , including the provision of pick to light systems, integrated into the Engine Assembly control
Customisation of HMI units within Engine assembly facilities
Introduction of error proofing systems
Development of “Poke Yoke” units and their integration into line side use.
The strip out and safe removal of machines and equipment, ranging from individual items to complete facilities. These
strip out actions have included both standard scrappage type work and careful dismantling for re-use in other locations.
